Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd is back and he’s brought Sly and the cast of Demolition Man with him! Mike often surprises me with his commissions. Sometimes it is an extra character, placing Sly in a role you wouldn’t expect or upgrading a sketch card to include the entire major players.
You can see more of Mike’s art at his Deviant Art site. Mike is available for commissions and his prices are very reasonable. I’m ready to order a new batch… perhaps he’ll have a Black Friday sale. ; )

On February 1, 2013, WhatCulture! posted Sylvester Stallone: 5 Awesome Performances and 5 That Sucked.
- According to WhatCulture! 5 that were Awesome: Rambo [First Blood and sequels], John Spartan [Demolition Man], Gabe Walker [Cliffhanger], Freddy Heflin [Cop Land], and Rocky Balboa [Rocky and sequels].
- Their Choices for Not-So-Awesome: Judge Dredd [same name], Ray Quick [The Specialist], Marion Cobretti [Cobra], Jack Carter [Get Carter], and Joe Bomoski [Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!].
To Awesome I would delete Spartan and Walker to make room for Jack Carter and Deke Dasilva [Nighthawks]. To Not-So-Awesome I would delete Carter and add Nick from Rhinestone. – Craig

In honor of the release of the new Judge Dredd film, on September 18, 2012, Reelz posted a survey of the Top 10 Sci-Fi Cops. Care to guess who was the ONLY actor to have TWO characters make the list? Maybe these photos will provide a hint. – Craig

Thomas Boatwright is back and with a vengeance. He knows you have to send a maniac to catch a maniac.
If you’d like to see more of Thomas Boatwright’s art check out his blog and his DA site. Send him some love.
If you get commissions, you should consider a piece from Thomas. He keeps you totally in the loop on his progress, finishes his commissions on or ahead of schedule, has very reasonable prices, is a fantastic artist and always gives you more than you’re expecting! - Craig

That’s an autographed card for “Demolition Man” starring Sly Stallone and Wesley Snipes. It’s autographed by Elliott Goldenthal, the composer for Demolition Man. How cool is that?
My pal, Alex surprised me with a package containing it and several other Stallone-related autographs that I’m going to post on the SZ over the coming weeks. Alex, as you’ve probably guessed is also known as LotofSly on the SZ message boards where he also serves as one of our moderators [and now has his own section Me &...]. Alex has met more celebrities than anyone else I know, and he somehow always manages to get photos with them. That’s in addition to being an all-around nice guy… and as nice as Alex is THAT has to be a full time job!

Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd knows what the three shells are for and so he decided that it was time for Sly as John Spartan aka The Demolition Man.
You can see more of Mike’s art at The Daily Sketch with The Krayola Kidd and his Deviant Art site. Mike is available for commissions and his prices are very reasonable. You’re also going to be happy to know that once a month Mike has a contest for someone to win a free sketchcard! That is how I came to own this cool sketchcard. I won the contest and told Mike to pick a Sly character. He chose Spartan and I couldn’t be happier.

I had the good fortune to get this cool sketch from Craig Rousseau back in 2009 when I purchased one of his sketchbooks. It was a great deal, because with each sketchbook, Craig included a free headsketch. [If you're interested, the deal is still available, and since the sketchbook is worth the price of admission, the headsketch is a great bonus!]
