Sketch card of the Day- Battle Cat!

Battle Cat Sketch Card by Taylor Lymbery

Today's deviation is Battle Cat! When I was a kid, my family had two cats. Their names were Shasha and Rusty. Shasha barely let me touch her so she was more or less safe from the craziness of a child. Rusty, on the other hand, was not. With that being said, Rusty was hence MY CAT and my play buddy and thing. I viewed Rusty as my Cringer, my Battle Cat. I'm actually surprised he made it to the age of 18 in human years after a couple of roping incidents (one almost killed him) and dress up (where I actually tried to tape my small Battle Cat saddle onto him). Needless to say, Battle cat has always struck an awesome family pet loving cord in my heart cause I thought of Rusty as Battle Cat! The vintage version of Battle Cat was purchased for me from a second hand shop when I was a kid-o. I remember being sooo excited that I had found one that had both saddle and helm. It was a very exciting day! When I finally got Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics version of Battle Cat, I was washed with so many memories of nostalgia. One from being in the Goodwill store with my bounty of He-Man items including Battle Cat, two playing with my good friend, Rusty the cat, that I loved so very much and the rest being all of the many wonderful days of playing with He-Man with his best friend, Battle Cat. Oh, if you are a filmation He-Man and the Masters of the Universe fan, don't be offended by what I am about to say: I never had my Battle Cat talk. He just roared a lot and chewed on Clawful and Merman. You can also see this sketch card here.

Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. So I will be there (given that I don't have another mishap).

Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Husband and wife, Brynna and Jeff, compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
