Where do I start? Well, I’m a frequent visitor to the Retromedia message boards. Retromedia is owned by one of my heroes, cult-movie director, Fred Olen Ray. Well, around the time that I had started pestering him about doing a comic book version of ‘Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers’, Fred was directing a film called ‘Bikini Girls from the Lost Planet.’ One day I recieved an e-mail from Fred that he needed a bogus comic book cover for a scene in the movie where Nicole Sheridan holds up a comic book called “Lost Planet Lesbos.” I was thrilled at the prospect of seeing some of my artwork in a Fred Olen Ray movie and told him no problem.
Turns out he needed the artwork by the NEXT DAY!! Well, one way or another, I managed to oink out a flashy little “Lost Planet Lesbos” cover and get it sent off for him to film the following day. It seemed like an eternity waiting for that dvd to come out but once it did and I saw my humble little artwork gracing the screen my chest was bursting with pride, chums! I mean, this is the same guy who has directed such cult classics as Evil Toons, Hybrid, Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold, Beverly Hills Vamp, Sideshow, and Witch Academy! As you can imagine, having my phony comic book cover appear on screen, even if it is only for a measly three or four seconds, is a true honor! By the way, if you you like looking at gorgeous girls, I would highly recommend you track down a copy of ‘Bikini Girls From The Lost Planet’ from Retromedia. Believe you me…you could do a helluva lot worse! www.retromedia.org
