Inking Uncle Deadly (The Phantom of the Muppet Show)

This was a fun video to make. And not just because I got to draw one of my favorite scary muppets, Uncle Deadly.

And not just because Run Red Run and I got to talk about Muppets (which is always fun).

But this time, we’re also debuting a brand new experimental segment where SOMEONE ELSE does the inking. Have I got your curiosity piqued? Good. Watch the video and find out what I’m talking about:

Inking Muppets! Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear.

I know we usually ink monsters or villains (because they’re fun) but we’re lightening things up a touch today and inking Muppets!

Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear, up on stage, thrilling the crowd on open mic night at Chet’s Beef and Brew. Everybody’s gotta start somewhere! But you know with the talent these two have, they’re going places!

And while I ink Muppets, RunRedRun and I discuss inking, kazoos, and that one time we met a Muppeteer! I also spend most of the video trying to convince her to sing.

Plus, if you stick around ’til the end, I tossed some digital color on my inks. Here the video:

Inking (and coloring) Sesame Street Monsters

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? Great. Now tell me how to get away from these creepy alien muppets.

I kid. I love these guys. But they did give me the creeps when I was five.

In this video, I ink these monsters (and maybe a surprise monster, too) and Run Red Run and I talk about Muppets and Frank Oz.
