Jabbey Road by Inkmonkey-Woodis Jabbey Road by Inkmonkey-Woodis
Jab Jab Jab Jab Jab Jab Jabber Jaaaaawww.

Another humor assignment. This time we had to parody a recognizable pop-culture image.

I decided to do a Jabberjaw picture before I decided which picture to parody. Now, I'm not much of a music conisseur, so instead of thinking up whatever band would match Jabbey and the Neptunes best, I just looked up pictures of my favorite band: The Beatles. Aside from being probably their most recognizable album, I chose to do Abbey Road simply because it's the only one I could fit Jabberjaw into comfortably.

Because of the questionable animation at the time, it was a little hard to tell exactly Jabbey's height compared to the others, but he could easily be twice their height. After coming up with a lot of (ugly) ideas about how to fit Jabbey onto the road too, I decided to just not make him "in" on the reference. The whole idea is actually based on an article I read once about the old man visible in the background of Abbey Road, clearly staring at the Beatles. Apparently he didn't recognize him, and was just really confused about why the 4 guys kept crossing the road while the cameraman took pictures.

I always liked this one.  I bet a Scooby-Doo version would look just as cool, you know, bring them out of the background.  :)

JabberJaw and Scooby doo are like the Jetsons and the Flinstones. JabberJaw is set in the future and Scooby Doo is set in the past.

I must say, Inkmonkey-Woodis, that you are quite the talented and creative artist! It must have taken you a while to get the exact poses down on the Neptunes in order to perfectly imitate that famous album cover. Not only that, but you also went above and beyond in placing the vehicles in the right positions (and people as well!). After comparing this to the Abbey Road album, it was surprising to see other people on the sidewalks right where you squeezed in the Scooby Doo gang. You must have looked at the original photo for a while, because it was even hard for me to point out those not so noticeable pedestrians in the background. The camera angle is a little higher on your parody than the original, but you really nailed the atmospheric perspective for an underwater environment! Your idea on how to fit our favorite Curly Howard-like shark in this piece just amazed me. Overall, you really studied the photo and even did more than was expected from a viewer such as myself. I assume that you got an A+ on this assignment; that's what I would give you if I were your instructor!

I think I got a regular A, but yeah, pretty much. The piece is a bit taller than the original album because there was a size requirement for the assignment, so I figured I'd just use the opportunity to push the whole underwater aspect.

I love the Shaggy and Scooby cameo in the background. Don't worry Jabberjaw, you'll get it eventually.

This is awesome! I used to watch this when I was little...always hated Shelly. She was mean. :XD:
Love the underwater city-type thing...reminds me of those walk-through tunnels with the fish only much bigger. o.o
