   Bout time I got around to updating the McBlahg.  I've decided that whenever I get a little bit of free time , I will post something, whether it is new, old or random.

Today I am posting an illustration I did for a friend who harassed me for over a year to come up with a tribute to his favorite fallen wrestler. Yes indeed, I'm talking about the great Randy "Macho Man" Savage.

Now my friend was quite shaken by the death of his childhood idol.  I think he may have actually shed a tear when he snapped it to a Slim Jim that sad day.  He asked me to come up with a tribute painting, something that would immortalize the only man who could get away with wearing day glow, cheetah print spandex and still kick the crap out of you.

After a year of "thinking it over" I was finally prepared to take on the challenge.  My wife and I laughed about a couple ideas as I sketched them on a scrap piece of paper.  his way I could tell my friend I had actually started on his masterpiece.  

Initially the idea was to have Macho Man riding a rocket propelled Slim Jim up to Heaven while playing a  Harp which has Slim Jim's for strings.  That idea was nixed for being too "jerky."

Instead I simplified it, added some Angel wings and a WWF championship belt.  I couldn't make a mockery of this enigmatic gentleman.
Macho Man Goes to Heaven.
