DESMOND the MAGICAL HOBO was created in the summer of 2011 by the collected minds of 'Unk Ryan' Ward (a.k.a. me) and young masters Ted Grant, Ethan Sterenfeld, Max Gilbert and Joseph Wiltzer at Camp Winnebago of Maine.
Behind the blinkless stare and unwavering, vacant smile lies a story of mythic proportions as DESMOND and his friends Slippy the Wonder Slug and Sunshine the Alpaca are based on literary giants whose shoulders they totter upon. DESMOND (a.k.a. DTMH) is a modern interpretation of the Don Quixote stories by Migel de Cervantes.
Instead of Windmills and a Knight of the White Moon, Desmond travels America's open highways and byways, railways and shores seeking to end the reign of the ever-evil DEMON KING. Desmond's one goal? To forever eradicate the DEMON KING and his many minions. Along the way, hilarity ensues as Desmond is met with disbelief and torment from those who cannot see the magical Rainbow Land.
It is the imagination and dedication of the young friends Desmond meets along the way that aids him to his final victory and, in the end, make his way home to the magical Rainbow Land that all of us can find within.
