I’m a little overwhelmed how fast my tribute sketch to Casey Kasem circulated the web in only a few hours. Something like 30+ shares on Facebook, and over 100+ likes/reblogs on Tumblr. Just goes to show the sketches that you do quickly but with heart and an idea get more love than the pieces you over work. The original sketch was done in maybe 10 minutes during a lull at work. I photographed it with my phone and uploaded it not thinking it would make so many rounds. So now that I’m home and done working on my second job (design for a screen printing shop), I was able to scan in my art and give it some basic colors.
I hope you all enjoy it. I remember Casey Kasem’s voice on Oldies stations, but being born in 1982, I know him more from the Hanna Barbera syndicated cartoons. In particular Scooby Doo. I really loved that show (pre Scrappy years). It is truly sad to lose a voice of such a fond character. Shaggy and Scooby were my favorite part of the show.
Rest in Peace Casey Kasem.
