Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd is back from “Paradise Alley” and he brought Sly as Cosmo Carboni with him! I think Mike did an excellent job of capturing Sly from one of his most under-rated movies.
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.
The big news this week is the potential re-teaming of Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger on a movie that Sly became attached to last year. In The Tomb, Sly is set to play Ray Breslin, a security expert who ends up framed and sent to a high-security prison that he designed. There’s no word yet on the role that has Arnold’s interest.
On January 12, 2012, The Winnipeg Free Press posted a piece by Maureen Scurfield titled Jamming in LA with Sly’s Little Brother. It is, of course, a piece with some tidbits about Frank.
Here are two new photos, and the first to feature Yu Nan for The Expendables 2!
This week we have Sly from Get Carter by Tom Hodges. I discovered Tom’s art through his DA site. I saw that Tom was going to be drawing live on UStream so I commissioned several sketches which will be posted in the coming weeks. Tom still draws regularly on UStream and it’s always a blast watching him sketch and interacting with the crowd.
Krystal Clark over at Screen Cave posted her choices for The Top 10 Macho Movies that Ruled the 90’s. Sly scored one movie in the top ten. Here’s the list with the rationale for Sly’s film.
10. Cliffhanger: Is it cold in here, or is it just us? Forget New York and L.A., 1993′s Cliffhanger takes place in the Rocky Mountains! The film follows Sylvester Stallone as he battles the icy elements and a group of merciless thieves. Not only does Stallone do some impressive rock climbing but he does it in shorts and a tank top! Who cares if it’s 20 degrees below zero, he doesn’t have time to freeze.
09. The Rock
08. Hard to Kill
06. Double Impact
05. True Lies
04. Con Air
03. Bad Boys
01. Die Hard with a Vengeance
Krystal Clark over at Screen Cave posted her choices for The Top 10 Macho Movies that Ruled the 80’s. Both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sly scored two movies in the top ten, but guess who came in at #1. Yep, Sly for First Blood. Here’s the list with the rationale for Sly’s films.
10. Road House
09. American Ninja
08. Rocky IV: “I must break you.” It’s been 26 years since Rocky IV’s release and those words still send chills down our spine. The movie isn’t a masterpiece but what it lacks in sensible dialogue it makes up for in spirit. It was Rocky Balboa versus Ivan Drago. It was the U.S. versus The Soviet Union. It was blonds versus brunettes. You get the picture.
07. Missing in Action
05. Escape from New York
04. Die Hard
03. Blood Sport
01. First Blood: John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is the ultimate ‘80s action hero. He’s a loner. He’s quiet. And he happens to be an expert in guerrilla warfare. After being tormented by a corrupt sheriff, Rambo taps into his survival training to fight back. As one man, he takes on 200 police officers and still manages to come out on top. How? Because he oozes machismo! If you send in 200 men against Rambo, don’t forget one thing – “a good supply of body bags.”

Lance Sawyer makes his first appearance at the StalloneZone with his sketch of Sly as Barney Ross from “The Expendables.” I’d been a fan of Lance’s art for a while. Recently I had a chance to purchase a few sketches from him and I could not be happier in how they turned out!
If you’d like to see more of Lance’s art, you can right here.
