Thin White Duke & Jackie.

A few months ago -- for god knows what reason -- I made some dumb joke about David Bowie running a fat camp. Last night, these notes resurfaced and I decided to work off a sugar high (and practice my cartooning) by turning this idea into a fake pitch. The Thin White Duke's fat camp. God, it's so stupid, but this is what happens at 4AM.

Ultimately, I only got as far as two characters. I couldn't even bring myself to ink and finish the fat little campers because they were just too ridiculous. I can tell you they all had baggy white t-shirts with the Aladdin Sane lightning bolt, though. Anyway. Here's David Bowie as the director of a fat camp. And this is his adorable assistant, Jackie -- I'm sorry, I had to.

Now that I've gotten those drawings out of my system, here are a few reasons why such a kids' show could never, ever exist: A) It's David Bowie and he's too good for this nonsense, and B) it's hard to animate so much milk and cocaine.


  1. Oh, wow, I just saw this via Chris Sims on tumblr and it killed me dead. Halloween Jackie is a real cool cat. I love it!
