POPEYE, EUGENE AND BERNICE by JayFosgitt POPEYE, EUGENE AND BERNICE by JayFosgitt
It's been several years since I last drew Popeye, and as a true fan of the character, I've been itching to return to him. Here I've drawn him with Bernice the Whiffle hen (the original source of his superhuman resilience, pre-spinach) and Eugene the Jeep. I love these characters and hope to draw more of them over time. Plus, they're a great addition to my ever-growing roster of classic cartoon character commissions! Hire me if this sort of thing appeals to you!

Indeed. Not to mention Spinach wasn't all that big a thing in the original 30s strips.

Eugene could also teleport and that made him impossible to cage if he didn't like you. Also he defeated the SeaHag who feared him. Segar didn't live to do another SeaHag story, but she did survive Eugene's attack.

I thought he was going to eat them.

Eugene also has the power of teleportation.
You couldn't hold onto him, unless he liked you. His powers make him a VERY handy pet to have around,BUT his diet would strain your budget !

It was explained to Popeye that jeeps are hybrids of 4-dimensional life and earth-life-hence their powers. This explanation went right over Popeye's head !

I AM MAGILLA
THE TOPIC KILLER ...

Bernice!

You, sir, have made my day! Don't know how I missed this one in your gallery.

You, sir, have just made my day. This is excellent. You captured the style wonderfully, and the world definitely needs more Eugene and Bernice. Had I an infinite supply of money, I would commission more Popeye than you could draw. Who wouldn't love to see some Ham Gravy, or the Sea Hag and Poopdeck Pappy?

I'll, uhh...I'll get to work on that infinite supply of money. 'Till then...

Thanks, Chad. It just figures that the one classic cartoon piece I draw that happens to become my favorite is the one that I drew for myself and didn't get paid for! Yeesh.
