My friend and former Cincinnati illustrator Daryll Collins has finally decided to start a blog at CartoonSuccotash.com. And he has started off strong by mixing the iconic landscapes of Bob Ross with his own cartoons. For those not familiar with Bob, he had a show on public television for years where he taught people how to oil paint landscapes in about 10 minutes. In fact I have one of his follower’s works hanging in my house (thanks mother in law).
If you get a chance go give Daryll some love and encouragement. We want more.
Yes, I remember that guy with the frizzy hair! If I caught him while flipping channels, for some reason I’d get stuck there and just stare. Like he had some kind of power over you. 😉 And it wasn’t any 10 minutes….more like 30!
It was a 30 minute show but that guy could have done the whole thing in 10.
Yep, we had him briefly on cable Down Under. I agree with Jillsy, stare worthy.
I love this. I still watch Bob Ross on PBS at about 5 in the mornin’. Mixing cartoon characters makes it even better.
Why are you even up at that time?
That is what old people do. We get up early. Anyway I like to get an early start on all the great adventures I want to have every day.
Me too but it just means my nap is that much earlier.
Heheh. Doing it like a Ross.
Forget Chuck Norris (Don’t tell him I said that!), but Bob Ross is the Bruce Lee of the landscape painting world.
Bruce Lee > Chuck Norris.
Thank you Bearman. I appreciate the shout out.
I’ll be back for a lunch or two sometime soon… I hope!
Sounds good…look forward to it.
I while I forgot his name I remember the show once I read your description of it. I used to love watching Bob work his magic on the canvas. Great cartoon additios to the landscapes. Now I’ going to check out Daryll’s site
Bob Ross was PBS (public broadcasting) crack to kids like the Teletubbies became.
Hahaha! That first one looks great!
I like them both…the subtlety of the second.
Is there any tartare sauce with that filet o fish?
Tastes more like tuna fish.
That’s a neat technique! I wonder how I’d look sitting with the Mona Lisa?
I think you have a project to do then.
Does Daryll have happy little accidents when doing his cartoons? That would complete the Bob Ross experience.
In your world, you may be anything you want.
I love to watch Bob Ross when I see him flipping through the channels…He’s awesome!
I love these comics incorporated in.
You should collaborate with Daryll on your landscapes. haha
Now that would be awesome. Daryll and Debs work would go great in this context.
“Found art” has just become a lost cause!
Seriously, funny stuff here. Now see if he can superimpose himself into those old videos.
Throw wall paint on that canvas.
I remember trying to match Ross’s time. My results looked nothing like his. I think he was/is a mutant. You can’t paint that well and as fast while talking seductively unless you sold your soul to Charles Xavier.
I do love the combination of Ross’s backgrounds and Collins cartooning style. They mesh perfectly.
Well your first mistake was selling your soul to a Professor.
I like the concept… This is pretty neat stuff!
I love this concept, bringing the old with the new and contemporary!
I’ve seen some artists who actually buy these paintings at yard sales and paint them up.
I buy paintings at yard sales too… I don’t change anything but the signature though.
Change it to mine…only if it is worth something.
That is what I have been changing it to. Resales are booming.
How come it works for you and not me?
It’s all in the marketing.
Sounds (and looks) awesome!
I think he’s got a great idea, there!
‘Maybe we’ll give that tree a fried…
everybody needs a friend…’
*in my best B.R.*
I think you should draw something on your photos.
I remember the fro man. He had a soothing voice. Great painter and sleeping pill. He was so relaxing. 🙂
In your world..it could be whatever you want.
Love this idea. Really funny.
Ha! Happy little clouds and trees.
Classic once, Classic twice. Great work, Daryll!
I remember that guy on TV. I recall he didn’t always use brushes. I remember him using wood paint sticks.
So does the cartoonist need to share project with Bob Ross?
Sadly Bob passed away.
Awesome! But… is that legal?
I think as long as he isn’t trying to profit off of it, he is fine. Plus it also fits into parody so he is fine from that standpoint too.
Like to see more caricature from you.
