My "ode' to a childhood television star, "The Count" from Seattle's, KIRO-TV's Nightmare Theater. This character was played by KIRO's Joe Towey. The television series ran from 1964-1978. Although I don't remember my parents enjoying the series, I do recall lying in bed and overhearing the opening theme music (which scared the hell out of me!), so apparently they were watching the show???
This original drawing was created in 2020 on 11 3/8' x 16" Canson Illustration board. It was created with pen & ink and water color. Although, I don't currently have any plans to create Giclée prints of this drawing, if enough people are interested, that can be accomplished.

Born and raised in Renton, Washington, Michael Hopkins grew up surrounded the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and aviation history. At an early age, Michael art was inspired by the likes of, Al Hirschfeld, Chuck Jones and Seattle Post Intelligencer Cartoonist, Bob McCausland and of course, aviation.
Michael’s credits his sense of humor and absurdity to Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy and Seattle's own J.P. Patches. The humor he developed, combined with his mastery of caricature, has been bringing smiles to the faces of those who understood satirical humor and consternation to those on the receiving end of his biting satire. Michael has proven over and over again, that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.
