I had initially thrown this piece out, only to pick it up a few months later, this time with the sense to add a final layer (most of the black paint), which transformed it into one of my favorites. The lesson learned? Keep painting until it looks cool.
I've seen Blue Demon Jr. a handful of times at live lucha libre events and it's fair to say I had a pretty good buzz going each time. If I had to wager I'd say that I've screamed the phrase, "Your my boy, Blue!" at him more times than anyone else in the modern world.
