"There were quite a few western television shows that I had to watch regularly, even in black and white. "The Cisco Kid", "The Lone Ranger", "Bonanza" and my favorite, "The Wild Wild West". I loved the animated intro with all of the scenes playing out in the little boxes. I didn't see too many western movies at the time, but the television shows were a huge part of my childhood as were the cartoons of Chuck Jones.
"For "Drip Along Daffy" I definitely jumped back into time to the era which I truly adore, 1920 to 1945 Art Deco. The western movie posters from that era are like none other. No glitz! Just primary colors and 10 gallon hats. A big, colorful hero in the background with a monochromatic action scene in the foreground was the formula; that's what I drew upon while designing the artwork for "Drip Along Daffy". I wanted it to be just like a vintage western movie poster that made western hero icons out of Buck Jones, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and Gary Cooper.
"With all that said it turned out just how I envisioned, a hero (or at least he thinks he is) with a 10 gallon hat, a primary color palette and a monochromatic sepia two gun wheelin, rootin, tootin, deth-spicable, angry duck in the foreground." -Mike Kungl
