Pogman Slammeth MCMXCIV by GagaMan Pogman Slammeth MCMXCIV by GagaMan
Yeah another piece of Pogman art, what of it? This is the first time I've put some time and effort into one though (previous quick art of him: [link] in 2004 and [link] in 2009) though like the previous time this was drawn from pure memory because I drew this guy so many times as a kid that he's permanently mapped out in my brain. Coloured this up on the gaga Telly livestream, had a lot of fun bouncing off ideas with Stacey and Xyionan, aiming to give this a RADICAL 90's feel. It's just bodacious, maaaan.

If they ever need an artist for another crack at reviving this character (unlikely judging by the failed revival in the mid 2000s) and they can't get his creator Mitch Schauer..

hint hint.

Oh my god... I... LOVED Pogs... Although I can only remember playing the game like once. I just liked collecting them. =P I wonder if I still have my Pogs? :? A search party must be formed to find them. Thank you for reminding me of these awesome things hehe. =)

Haha yeah I mainly collected them rather than played them too. I still have all of mine in the loft and they're staying there until the very unlikely day that' they'll be worth anything.

Oh god I remember that fad. Then all the other second rate pog's that came out (like the ones you could connect together via little slots in them).

Great drawing and thanks for bring back some great old memories!

Hey I still have some! Yep! Sitting right there on my desk!

I have a bunch with Pogman on them... and needless to say, they're my favorite with how crazy he is.

Awesome job!

You pile them up, chuck a metal pog at the pile, and whatever ones flip over you win. Something like that anyway.

I'm still not terribly big on POGs looking back, but Pogman was cool i'll give him that.

You try out for the next Boglins\ card \ pogs-like game as well though. You'd be quite good with that. :)

Haha yeah I think looking back I liked the pogs with pogman on the best, they always crammed a lot of artwork onto those tiny things. Most others were mega tacky looking.

I think you might mean the Chuba Chups set. Those had animated images on them of cats vomiting and shit, and the slammer was a metal funny shaped thing.

Ah so that's what you were working on Live Stream! Shame the video only worked briefly for me : ( but anyhow yeah I loved that character, like a Wotsit's Captain Caveman love child! Wish some ol' school 90's mascots could be revived but we have to settle for such characters as the Go Comapre guy : o

He *might* be reminding you of the Angry Beavers, who Mitch Schauer also created. That or you saw the pog fad whizz past in the mid 90's..

During my recent move, I tossed all my old pogs. I don't even remember how the hell that game was played, I think it was just an excuse to throw things.

I already have excuses like that, it's called ebay... and I need more.
It's quite possible that I have one of the largest "Metal Gear Solid" collections.

I'm not proud of it, but I love it so. *commence crazy babble*
