The Brothers Marx by HarpyMarx The Brothers Marx by HarpyMarx
I don't know how to draw Zeppo or color an image of actors from a time before color film.

Anyway, I'm a huge Marx Brothers junkie and I actually draw them a lot, usually just in notes and things that should have facts and important things on them but somehow always end up with Harpo and Chico chasing chicks on them. Oh well.

This almost reminds me of Bob clampetts' (looney tunes) cartoons, which were very wild!

"...but somehow always end up with Harpo and Chico chasing chicks..."

And this is unfitting becaaause...?

Speaking of which, I absolutely adore Chico's expression in this. And his posing. And everyone's posing for that matter. You put such movement into them! :la:

Hello. Me again. Hope you dont mind, i used your image as my Timeline Cover on Facebook.
I credited you as the artist on my description, you cant see that as your not my friend, but you can see your Artwork in use on my profile here: [link]

If you want me to remove it, I can. But i figured you wouldnt mind as im not distributing it on another Art site or anything and claiming it my own.

Great work. You really captured each of the Brothers well.

And found this: [link]
Hope thats some help.

Im still reading Harpo Speaks, maybe read some others in the future.
Just ready about Woolcott going mad at Harpo for cheating in the game of 'Murder' and his trick shot with half a car tire, :D Im loving this book, never had a book that makes me laugh so often.

This is so great! I love these guys. Youve got an amazing cartoony style, reminds me of Snap, Crackle and Pop. The colors and poses are so perfect. Chico and his puns were always my favorite and LOVE when he plays piano!

Great Job On The Marx Brothers. But I Thought Harpo's Hair Is Orange

It's a funny thing, Harpo's wig. Originally, it was red; in every vaudeville act and in The Cocoanuts. However, it was switched to blonde because the red just wasn't showing as well in black and white film. Though it's still sometimes referred to as red in the pictures, it's pretty clearly blonde and in the advertisements etc. made for their films, the wig is blonde still.

Marx Brothers trivia!

Love the Marx brothers - huge fan of them.
My favourite Groucho line to Zeppo in Horsefeathers "I'd horsewhip you, if I had a horse!"
&
"Anything further father?"
"That can't be right! Isn't it anything father further!"

"I've got to stay here, but there's no reason you folks shouldn't go out into the lobby while this thing blows over." Why would I ever leave when Chico starts playing the piano.

If you ever came over to my house, we'd watch Marx Bros movies. My dad's on a big kick.

Can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

why are these people geniuses.
