The ominous character seen in “Macabregras” originally came from a doodle I did which took inspiration from Aubrey Beardsley’s “Masquerade” (seen below) and the publicity poster for “Le Carnaval Des Specters”, a play that was featured in the Grand Guignol (a theater known for its gorey horror plays).The two pictures above are a comparison between the original poster and the first sketch depicting the (literally) boneheaded figure.

It’s rather frightening how that description is not exaggerated in the slightest.

Actor and Comedian Robin Williams has passed away today at age 63. When I first read that, I hoped that it was nothing more than a rumor, that it wasn’t true. That he was alive and well. But one Google search proved otherwise.

He had a natural wit, he was intelligent and he knew how to make everyone laugh. May he rest in peace.
