10 Stupid Questions



Happy Friday Girls n' Ghouls! It's time for everyone's favorite blog feature, 10 STUPID QUESTIONS!!! Today's chump is none other than astounding artist, benevolent blogger, super Spock-ologist and beloved buddy to Basset hounds everywhere, Charles Howell!!! That's Chunky B to you! Charles is a busy guy with 5, yes 5 blogs to keep up with, along with a (what I guess) is a full-time job designing toys. Damn Charles, I can barely keep up with one blog and still get any work done! You can see Charles's art, musings and toys at these fine locations; StudioHowell, Electorama, The Pop Project, JLU Club and Batman: The Animated Toys

Okay kids, Let's get to the interview;

1.) What do you do and why?
I draw pictures and design stuff for plush toys. Really? Why? Because I get paid to draw Batman and Star Trek stuff all day.

2.) What or who inspires you? My Dad, cause he can make anything out of whatever is laying around. My Wife because she puts up with all my crazy ideas and encourages them.

3.) What's the best part of your day?
Coffee in the morning with my wife and our dogs, before we all go to work. Well, before My wife and I go to work and the dogs get busy sleeping and tearing up our stuff.

4.) What's the most bizarre thing you've ever experienced?
I was in an emergency room with a broken bone as a kid and a man came in right behind us to check in as well. We were just sitting down in the waiting area when he pulled a large hunting knife and drove it into his own chest. Needless to say he got into see the doctor before me.

5.) Who is one living person you would like to meet and why?
I'm just going to say it, it's not anything original but I would like to have lunch with George Lucas and just talk about it all. I have always been interested in his different endeavors.

6.) What are your three favorite posessions?
I'm picking all toys form my childhood, originals that I still have.
1. Vintage Mail Away Boba Fett
2. Vintage Die Cast Millennium Falcon
3. Original Mego Mr. Spock

7.) What one superpower would you like to have?
Super Speed, like the Flash, then I could hurry up through all the crap and get to the fun stuff!

8.) When is the last time you got into a fistfight and why?
Fifth grade, the kid took something of mine and I wanted it back.

9.) What song gets you pumped today?
Good question, several I guess
Renegades of Funk - by Rage Against the Machine
Lonely as You - by the Foo Fighters
come to mind.

10.) What's your worst habit?
Starting a project then jumping to another and another and another. They all get finished, just takes a little longer

HOLY CRAP! That's one way to bypass that long wait at the ER! It's good to see another artist with such great taste in music, toys and pets! I'd like to thank Charles for his participation, and tune in next week when I'll be talking to whoever answers these questions and emails them back to me with a picture....hopefully female....and cute....and topless!
