two page group shot

Here is another picture I did for "Bucketheads in Oz". This one gave me a chance to put as many characters as I could. I put in mostly Baum's characters, but I put a couple of Thompson's, and I put characters from the last two books I illustrated.

I love group scenes like this! I can see Kabumpo, the Shaggy Man, the Wogglebug, Jack Pumpkinhead, Button-Bright, Betsy Bobbin, Hank, Scraps, the Frogman, Cap'n Bill, the Comfortable Camel (or possibly the Doubtful Dromedary), Tik-Tok, Trot, Pigasus, the Sawhorse, Eureka, Brewster Bunny, the Woozy, Billina, Bungle, Mombi, the Scarecrow, Glinda, the Wizard, Ozma, Nick Chopper, Dorothy, the Hungry Tiger, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto. I originally thought the guy between Shaggy and Jack was Cap'n Bill, before noticing that he was in the picture elsewhere. Is it Sir Hokus, possibly? I assume the dog next to Brewster and the animal at Mombi's feet (assuming that is Mombi) are from books I haven't read. The boy with the crown standing near Ozma looks like Randy to me, but could possibly be another prince.

Nathan,You know your Oz (but I already knew that). You deserve a cookie. Yes That is Mombi,but in different clothes. The animal next to her is a new character for "Bucketheads", Rags a living pile of laundry. The dog next to Brewster is Spot the main character from "Three-headed Elvis Clone". The man behind Shaggy could be anyone. I like to think he's Shaggy's brother. As for the prince, that would be Tip who was brought back and made a prince. I tried to give him and Ozma a similar face.
