Fun Fact: My dad was childhood friends with, and lived down the street from, the guy who played The Red Skull in the 1990 Captain America movie. I’ve met him once, maybe twice. Definitely before he got the Red Skull gig, too. Otherwise, he probably would have been wearing the Red Skull mask. I know I would if I were him.

My dad does not, however, know the guy who played The Red Skull in the 2011 Captain America movie. Which is a shame, because it’d be pretty cool to say, “I know two Red Skulls.”

Anyway, ladyphant and I watched the 2011 movie the other night. Pretty good super-hero movie. The digital effects they used to make Chris Evans look small and wimpy weren’t all that believable,  but you forget about that once he actually becomes Cap and gets his sweet WWII-era costume.

The above drawing is something we did to warm up one day last year, probably around the same time the movie was coming out. We like making Captain America look everything but chisel-jawed and stoic, as is apparent by this other version of him we did a while ago. (Sorry, Cap!)

    Remind me to Pinterest this later…especially the second one. I may need a lithograph too.
