Last year I was contacted by the Nakatomi Invitational to produce a T-Shirt and Print based on the theme of robots. So I racked my brain and came up with MILTON GLASER V. MAGMA TAISHI a tribute to the only robot with long beautiful flowing locks, Osamu Tezuka's Magma Taishi (Goldar in the US) done in the style of 60's poster designer Milton Glaser.

Photobucket

Limited edition T shirts and Prints are available for one month only, so check it out if you have a chance.

Thanks,

Craig

Personally, I'd have gone with Mitsuteru Yokoyama's Tetsujin 28-go (aka Gigantor ).

Whoa!!! I'm a big fan of Osamu Tezuka, and yourself, but I never thought I'd say the day when you guys' work would come together. And this shirt design does, indeed, capture both the style of Osamu Tezuka and the somewhat abstract pop-art style done by quite a few artists of said movement. Great job!!!

I must say, Osamu Tezuka's a huge inspiration for me, as well. His very imaginative, unique characters and stories have had me hooked on his work for a long time.

That's awesome, Craig! Ambassador Magma is my personal favorite Tezuka character.

I look forward to more of your work! This was a pleasant surprise.

Gorgeous text and flowing locks, and I love the use of the black and white to create Taishi's cold metalic shape. :)

I've never heard of Magma Taishi. I've never heard of Milton Glaser. And the only Nakatomi I have heard of is the one from Die Hard. But sir, I know what I like, and I like this.

my inner nerd could not be happier than it is right at this very moment in time.
Now if only said inner nerd could find a job, she would be wearing this shirt at the earliest possible convenience.

On the subject: maybe for an encore you could consider doing a tribute to either Tsuburaya's Ultraman or Toei's Johnny Socko & His Flying Robot (Japanese name: Giant Robo )....two classic Japanese shows that ran during the after-school hours of our respective youths in the late 1970s/early 1980s. It's just a thought.

me alegra saber que sigas vigente y que aparte se te reconozca tu trabajo ya que recientemente vi un episodio de powerpuff girls z y vi tu credito como creador y no el de tartakivsky y aun encima sigas produciendo cosas,ahi te mando un saludo de los artistas y caricaturistas de mexico

Impressive. Of course, as a kid I had more exposure to Ultraman and Johnny Socko than I did The Space Giants (mainly because the two ran on the same syndicated station at the time during the late 1970s).

hey Mr. McCracken. or should i call you Craig? well anyway, first I just want to say that I love the shows that you've contributed to cartoon network over the years, and your cartoons are simply timeless and have, without a doubt influenced the person I am today. secondly I also would like to say that I would love to be a cartoonist and animator like you someday. third and finally, I was just wondering if you had any idea what the heck happened to cartoon network and why it has (in the words of a friend of mine) "sold its soul to the devil".
thank you for your time.
~your biggest fan, Dave
