As the holiday season opens, Lou and Darla the Wonder Dog have unveiled their Christmas card for 2019.
This year’s card features artwork based on the cover of an old Archie Comics Christmas Classic. Lou explained, “I figured since the new Riverdale show was wreaking havoc on Archie’s legacy, it would be nice to salute the comic’s old school roots.”
As with previous cards, the art was done by The Alan MacBain Cartoon Company. You can check out older cards and other images in the Art section of the site here. Alan is currently working on original illustrations for Lou’s upcoming book entitled “Sonic Warrior: My Life As A Rock N Roll Reprobate (Tales of Sex, Drugs & Vomiting at Inopportune Moments).” The book will be published by Rare Bird Books on April 14, 2020.
Each of this year’s cards are hand-signed by both Lou and Darla. If you’re not already on the list to receive one, the best way to get a card is to send a card of your own. The address is Brutus World Industries PO Box 361 Arnold, MD 21012. Supplies are limited!
The 2018 holiday card from Lou and Darla has been revealed and it may be the best yet!
Based on Ralph Steadman’s “Bats Over Barstow” illustration from Hunter S. Thompson’s landmark novel “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” Lou’s is “Fear and Loathing at the North Pole.” It features he and Darla maniacally sledding through a frozen landscape.
The art was created by LB’s longtime partner in artistic crime Alan MacBain of the Alan MacBain Cartoon Company.
Inside the card the caption reads, “We were somewhere around the Arctic Circle on the edge of the tundra when the eggnog began to take hold. Suddenly there was a terrible HO-HO-HO all around us and the sky was full of what looked like red-nosed reindeer, all swooping and screeching and diving around the sled, which was going about a hundred miles an hour to the North Pole.”
The art can be enjoyed online. A select few physical cards went out to family and friends. Also, as the best way to get Christmas card from someone is to send them card, Lou mailed off cards to a number of listeners who had been kind enough to send to him.
Happy and Merry Whatever It is You Celebrate! The annual Lou Brutus holiday card has been unveiled for 2015! Art has once again been provided by The Alan MacBain Cartoon Company. The card features Darla the Wonder Dog and LB done in the style of illustrator Edward Gorey. Quantities are limited!
The Lou Brutus holiday card for 2014 has been unveiled.
Once again, the artwork has been created by Lou’s longtime partner in artistic crime Alan MacBain of The Alan MacBain Cartoon Company.
This year the theme is Guardians of the Holiday with Lou and his beloved Darla the Wonder Dog joined by a bevy of rock star friends in a scene from the Guardians of the Galaxy film poster.
Brutus takes the Star Lord postion while Lzzy Hale of Halestorm is Gamora, Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch is Drax the Destroyer and Jim Root of Slipknot stands in as Groot. A snarling Darla fires a laser a la Rocket Raccoon.
The cards are only sent out to friends and family of Lou’s. However, a very small amount of them will be made available to fans through LB’s social networks. Keep your eyes on the official Lou Brutus Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Good Luck!
