Something I did during a bout of insomnia to post on Dribbble, as it’s been ages since Sean drafted me and I hadn’t submitted anything yet. 
Been watching KOJAK on Hulu and completely forgot what a badass show it was. New York in the lawless ’70s … old-school detective work without computers or DNA (or ANY CSI procedure, apparently - pick that evidence up with your bare hand, sure, no problem!) … awesome guest stars just starting out (Harvey Keitel was so hot when he was young!) … and Savalas with that sexy velvety voice all full of “baby”s and “sweetheart”s and “hello, beautiful”s … SWOON. Seriously, 50 and bald … I’d like to be his grape Tootsie Pop. And those shades! David Caruso wishes his shades bit was as cool as Kojak’s, man.
Anyway, it’s now topped THE WIRE and CHiPS as my favorite cop show of all time.
Incidentally, I had no plan here … I love just opening Illustrator and starting to mess around. In fact, the only thing I was certain I wanted was to use his catchphrase: “Who Loves Ya, Baby?” as his other trademark: his lollipop stick. Other than that, the rest just happened.
And yes, ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE is still coming - TWO posters of it, actually - I guess it’s just a Telly Savalas week … just took a short diversion from Blofeld to Kojak.
