Something New (Repost)

(I am reposting this because the pictures didn't open properly when selected.)

Have you every been in a situation where you are busy doing one thing and an idea comes out of nowhere and hijacks your thoughts? That happened to me recently when I was walking to the train station at the end of the workday. I was thinking about the crazy things we parents say to our kids when they are young to make them behave or to go to bed. I was thinking about some truly outrageous things that would scar any impresionable young child and then seeing how far I could go before it became rediculous. Then the idea of the Boogie Man popped into my head along with the Andrew Sisters who used to sing in boogie-woogie harmony back in the 40's and 50's, and an idea for a short film came to full bloom in a matter of seconds.

I've done a few scribbles. Enjoy.

A Boogie Man and a victim.

A Boogie Man on a chase.

Little willful and spoiled little Willie.

Little Willie should have stayed in bed.

Boogie Men love to drink and party by making all the captured rotten kids entertain them by doing chores ... but they aren't just any chores.
