In the original Rat Attack Sparky was the witch's cat. I remember we had to change the pentagram on his chest to a crescent moon in case we upset any Satanists. Originally I'd mistakenly drawn a Star of David there. I (or no one else) spotted that for ages.
I think I'd ramp up the magic, Diablo style if I was designing this character now. Runic patterns and glowing effects are what magic is all about these days.
Being the illustrator extraordinaire and wondrous wordsmith that I am, I will endeavor to entertain you through the pages of this blog. I am still not sure if there will be any point to my ramblings but I feel that it has to be done so I am doing it. May God have mercy on all our adorable souls.
