I've written before about Maurice Vellekoop and how we love his illustration. We've developed a few projects with him, nothing has materialized yet.
A few years ago Logo (the gay oriented cable network) invited us to pitch show ideas. We began by reworking a great concept we had developed for a general audience.
Maurice had some new characters and created some -as usual -beautiful pieces of art for it.
After a lot of initial excited from the network, they claimed poverty. While we felt this was the sort of production a channel could build its identity around (much like Comedy Central did with South Park, then briefly Chappelle and now The Daily Show) it may have been a little too out of the ordinary.
Yes, that is Liza Minnelli.
