Dave Wachter is back and he brought his take on Sly from the Rhinestone. I met Dave several years ago and became an instant fan. I wasn’t the only one to discover Dave’s fantastic sketches! How can you not like a great guy who is a terrific artist?
It has become a HeroesCon tradition that I get Dave to draw his take on Sly. Somehow this one was never posted until now.
You can see more of Dave’s art at his site. – Craig
Otis Frampton did his take on Sly from Rhinestone way back in 2009 when every Sunday [okay, ALMOST, every Sunday], Otis had a live UStream broadcast that he called the 7×7 Sunday.
Lucky fans could get a head sketch of ANY character drawn live by Otis on a 7X7 inch bristol board for 7 bucks postage paid. It was the best deal going. Watching Otis drawing live and interacting with fans kept me up even if I wasn’t a sketch winner.

Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd is back and he’s brought Sly and Dolly Parton from Rhinestone with him! This is one of my recent favorites!
Over the coming weeks/months I’ll be posting more of Mike’s sketch card commissions. My goal is to eventually get a card for every character Sly has played. We’re well on our way!
You can see more of Mike’s art at his Deviant Art site. Mike is available for commissions and his prices are very reasonable.
On August 15, 2014, The Hollywood Reporter posted a piece called, Stallone Blames Schwarzenegger For His Most Regrettable Roles Included on the list of less-than-classic movies was Stop! Or My Mom or Shoot and Rhinestone.
