Phineas and Ezra and Gus by JonBeanHastings Phineas and Ezra and Gus by JonBeanHastings
A pin-up of everyone's favorite other world hitchhikers, done for the back cover of SLG's "Haunted Mansion" comic (and now up for auction on Ebay).

Watercolors with a little airbrushing.

I know! Weird that Brianna and I did the same drawing at the same time (I think I like hers is better, though).

Are you gonna do more comic book entries? We still need Phineas!

Good old Phin, unless something goes horribly wrong, will appear in issue #8, thus giving me the Hitchhiking Ghost story hat-trick!

Hmm . . . you'd think with 999 possible stories, anything's possible - does that include all the animals in the graveyard, the toombs, and all portraits/statues in the Mansion?

I want to know the Lady-Turned-Cat story.

SLG Glorious Leader Dan Vado went through the whole attraction, finding any and all names/characters/pictures/statues/etc. that could be used. He made a big list of them for all the creators. I can't remember how many there were, but it was less than a hundred.

At one point, I wanted to do a series about the "Museum of the Weird" that was part of the original design, which would have added more characters. I'm sure we could have easily kept things going for years.

Dude . . . if someone does a story on the arm hanging out of the brick mausoleum, I'll be so happy.

So since there's less than 999 in the actual ride & queue, do the creators make-up ghosts? I don't know, for example, where the two boys chasing each other (after the peppermint girl) come from.

I hate to break the news but issue #8 will be the last one, so it looks like we'll never know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop (if "licks" is "stories" and "the center of a Tootsie Pop" is "the 999th ghost.")

Wow, that's a pretty obtuse metaphor.

Anyway, we we're pretty much allowed to come up with whatever we wanted, Disney just had to approve it. (They only wanted me to make one change on my first story; that the streching room was being stretched supernaturally, not by mechanical means). It was an easy fix (and actually led to the idea behind my "Pickwick Capers" story, where we see the ghosts stretching the room).

Of course, it was easy to pick existing ghosts instead of make up new ones, which is why I called all three of the hitchhiking ghosts as quick as possible.

They scare the crap out of me now! (At least Ezra... Gus and Phineas, not so much.)

Nothing like a real airbrush to make the Photoshop one look like a punk.

They are happy like used-car salesmen... they just want to jump in your doom buggie and follow you home, where they will throw your very own sugary snackcakes at you! Creamy splats will be your reward!

Very cool! Wow you did that with watercolors and an airbrush? When I saw it I thought it was photoshop. Now I'm about 10x more impressed. Great job, man!

Thanks. I'd originally done it in Photoshop ([link]) and I liked elements of it but I wanted to go old-school, brush-to-page for the final version (and so I could sell the original).

Nice job on the cover, by the way, looks great.
