I remember when Jacko was the coolest individual on the planet. This was around the time Thriller came out. Then he bought a ranch, which he named after Peter Pan, and invested in plastic surgeries. It was downhill from there. A few years ago, shortly after he'd been acquitted of assorted crimes, the LA Times asked me to do a series of illustrations on the topic of what Michael might do to rebuild his career. I immediately thought of having him tour with the Vienna Choirboys. It is easier to cartoon a figure when they are already a cartoon.
