WALKER DUKES: GENIUS!

Several people asked me who did the over-the-top, colorful photos of the spacewomen in the Pizza Boy episodes.  Good question, and here's the answer...Walker Dukes. The man is a genius! 
He likes to take black and white frame grabs from classic films and color them. How do you like this one (above) of Joan Crawford? He also does portrait photography in this style. I wish I could afford him. 














He's terrific at graphics and film titles (above). Rainbow lions is (are?) a terrific idea!



Electro Dog House (above)...very nice. 


I love his color choices. Sometimes anything that's not day-glow has no place on his palette...and rightly so! I wonder how a poster of this statue (above) would look in black light?






Well, maybe he does use more subdued colors sometimes. I really like what he did with the color and texture of these rocks (above).


Here's the man himself (above)! Check out his work here:

ALIEN (V.O.): "Yes, Great Leader! Everyone knows who he's supposed to vaporize when the signal is given!" 



ALIEN KID: "Look Dad! The Great Leader is just a big old eyeball!"




The Great Leader zaps the kid.







"
THE GREAT LEADER: "Now let's get down to business. Are the gorillas ready to be unleashed?"

GORILLA TRAINER: "Yes, Great Leader! When you say the word a half million angry gorillas will be released in population centers all over the world."

THE GREAT LEADER (V.O.): "Good!"

GREAT LEADER (V.O.): "And the ball bearings? Are they ready to roll?"


SALUTING ALIEN: "Yes, Great Leader. At your command steel balls fifty feet high will be rolled down the streets of every village and town."












GREAT LEADER: "And the Lesbians? How about them?" 








LESBIANS: "They're ready, Great Leader!"










LESBIANS (V.O.): "On the signal the Amazon Army will attack New York City, taking care not to disrupt the various feminist bookstores and craft fairs."












GREAT LEADER (V.O.): "And the Shamwows!? What about the Shamwows?"


SHAMWOW SALESMAN: "A million Venusian face eaters have been sold to American housewives under the brand name, 'Shamwow.' When the command is given the Shamwows will revert to type and voraciously consume human faces."














GREAT LEADER: "Excellent! And the zombie dogs?"






GREAT LEADER (V.O.): "Never mind! I can see they're ready!"
















GREAT LEADER: "Then that's it! The invasion will commence tomorrow! Victory is inevitable!"








APPLAUSE LIGHT GOES ON.
