Cereal Mascot Reunion

For some reason this image has been swimming around in my head for a few years now, and finally - after chipping away at it bit by bit over the last couple months - I've brought it to life as a large, absurdly detailed print. It's kind of about the strange, uncomfortable feeling of reuniting with old friends only to find that the magic just isn't there anymore - and in turn, about the melancholy "nothing will ever be as good as it used to be" type of nostalgia, of which I am increasingly fond. And of course, a tribute to the late, great, wood-paneled, shag-carpeted 1970's rec room.

Order the 22" x 17" limited run fine art print

Details: Trix Rabbit, Frankenberry, Count Chocula, Cap'n Crunch, Tony The Tiger

UPDATE:I've posted a detailed step-by-step of how this was put together, for those interested.

In other news, I polished up a couple images to get them print-ready for the Possum Saloon show last week, so now Headache and Miscarriage are available as prints. I'm also now offering smaller 11" x 17" sizes on some of the prints, for those who don't want the full size.

Idol Worship

Inspired by the small bit of snow that fell today up in the Seattle area. Even a tiny bit is fun when you've grown accustomed to seasonless Los Angeles.

This also makes a fun wallpaper.

Happy Holidays!

This is my Christmas card this year. Hope everyone is having a great holiday!

This is also available without text as a wallpaper and a print.

I'll leave it up to some intrepid Jewish artist to draw a family of menorahs lighting people on fire.

P.S. Here's the original pencil sketch and the more detailed digital sketch.

Helicopt-O-Bot

I haven't had time to do any sketches lately, mostly because I've been busy trying to fulfill all the print orders. Is that irony? I'm not sure. Anyway, here's one I did tonight - I ended up with two versions, and I can't decide which one I like better, so I'm posting both. I also made a wallpaper version.

Version 1 - click to enlarge:




Version 2 - click to enlarge:



Here is the original sketch, which has Helicopt-O-Bot looking a bit too robotic. I changed him to look more like something an inventive child could put together out of items from around the house and believe it really works.

Sketch Blog Hiatus/George Bush Adventures



I'm not doing a sketch today, and possibly tomorrow either, because I'm resurrecting a little pet project I started almost a year ago, after I had a really entertaining dream about an old school 8-bit RPG (a la "Final Fantasy," "Dragon Quest," etc) where you played as George Bush and tried to save the world from terrorists and homosexuals. Determined to make it a reality, I found some really cool Japanese software that lets you create your own old-school RPGs, and I began tinkering around with it in my spare time. But like most of my pet projects, it fell to the back burner and remained neglected for many months... until now. I'm going to put a little time in on this here and there and see if I can get at least a demo together. I have the first two areas done: Inside and outside Bush's Texas ranch. I'm currently working on the protest scene outside the ranch, which is pretty complicated. In the meantime, here are some in-development screenshots of the soon-to-be-legendary GEORGE BUSH SUPER ULTIMATE ADVENTURE!!

Happy Halloween, From The Zombified Decapitated Head of Dick Cheney.

Today's sketch is not a sketch at all, but rather a little Halloween decoration I put together. I saw a surprisingly well-modeled Dick Cheney rubber mask whilst shopping for Halloween decorations at my local Party City (which, incidentally, is much more of a stressful hellhole than any kind of party on the weekend before Halloween). I immediately decided that my Halloween would not be complete without some sort of decapitated Dick Cheney head. I found a cool-looking plastic skull at Target, and picked up a plastic brain, and with the help of red paint, scissors, super glue, plastic bags, fire, and Play-Doh, The Zombified Decapitated Head of Dick Cheney Halloween Candy Platter was born!

(As someone in the comments pointed out, this creation could also be described, on a number of different levels, as a Dickhead.) Click to enlarge:



I think maybe for the trick-or-treating kids who knock on my door, every fun-sized Snickers bar they pluck from Dick Cheney's severed head is going to include a terrifying horror story called The Most Evil Man Who Ever Lived. Here's another view:



And it seemed more than fitting to make a card out of it, so here you go (click for full-sized version):



I love Halloween.

It's very temperamental.

YesterdayCube

(click to enlarge)



The look of this was inspired by an old metal sign I have - which is also where I got the overlay texture. It's an "Emergency Resuscitation" sign from the '70's - I found it in a ratty old spring factory somewhere in London.

The image itself came from how much I like the word "YesterdayCube," which popped into my head randomly yesterday.

Gravity

True story.


Twenty years later, I'll still occasionally find myself sizing up the gravity-reversal safety of my surroundings.
