Illustration Friday - "Memories"


  For this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "Memories" I went back to a 70's TV show, Land Of The Lost.  I think it was on TV for one season, maybe two.  Anyway I remember I watched it on Saturday mornings because my brother (who was older and larger) wanted to watch it.  I kinda liked the show- but was more into cartoons.  Anyway the green characters are called "Sleestacks", the little blond girl was Holly and the furry little guy was named Chacha.  I saw online that they are remaking Land of the Lost with Will Ferrell- should be funny.

Howdy. Great stuff, love your work! But, go easy on the double spaces. (Those were just for typewriters.) Only one is needed after a period when typing on a computer. Cheers!

LOL! This is truly priceless. I watched the show too and do recall chaka! Awesome illo!! Oh, and looking forward to the movie--should be a hoot.

Great job! I watched this show every week - even though the Sleezaks gave me nightmares. Freaky little show, but I loved it. I thought Chacka was actually called Chackie. Do you remember the show called Lidsville? Now that was a freaky show! :)

Love your work.

OMG! I used to LOVE that show! How hilarious! Those crazy Sleestak (<--had to google to find the spelling!) things...when my older son Cody was little, he wore these shark things in the pool...goggles with a pointy thing on top, weird looking flippers on his hands and feet. My sister and I called him a Sleestak, but of course he didn't get it! :) That little furry guy was a little creepy, though! Great illustration!

Ok, I am so behind on checking in on your blog. Loved browsing through and this one made me chuckle! I loved that show and was terrified of Sleestaks! But these make me want to hug them! Thanks for sharing the memories! =)
