Grim Hogarth

Here's my latest copy of a Hogarth action figure. This is a famous one, it is on the cover of the book. Burne Hogarth was for many years the illustrator of Tarzan comic books so he got to do a lot of ape-man action, with grim violent expressions. I've changed the right arm a bit because I couldn't fit my copy of the original onto the page. Hogarth loved drawing fingers and toes, which take on a kind of fetid, claw-like quality of their own. I have shaded out the guy's "business" just the way H. did. This does not stop these drawings from being really gay.
