Alcott (in progress)

Here’s more of my ‘author series’ (Poe here – Twain to follow). I’ve been turning these drawings into 3-D / Mixed Media pieces… but… it’ll probably be a while before I post images of a finished product.

Louisa May Alcott Drawing: “I could write a whole novel in less time. Even without  hands. Seriously, dude. I’m a drawing.”

Me: “Geez Ms. A… that’s kinda harsh…”

Louisa May Alcott Drawing: “My bad. Only trying to amp things up a bit.  Red Bull?”

Poe (in progress)

It’s been a while since I posted a drawing, so here’s a look at Eddie. I drew him as part of a mixed media author series. This drawing’s done, and the piece itself is about 95 percent finished (which means I should have the whole thing complete in about a decade or so).

Raven: “Knock knock!”

Poe: “Who is there?”

Raven: “Orange…”

Poe: “Are you serious? Come back when you’ve got some decent material, dude!”

Rhinoceros

Here’s a drawing of a Rhino… he hopes everyone has a great weekend. I do too. More stuff on Monday!

Stuart MacKenzie: “HEAD! PAPER! NOW! Move that melon of yours and get the paper if you can, haulin’ that gargantuan cranium about.”

Tony Giardino: “SSShhhhh…”

Stuart MacKenzie: “I’m not kiddin’, that boy’s head’s like Sputnik… spherical but quite pointy in parts…”

Four Kings

I’m still indecisive… which explains the 4-styles-o-Elvis. In the end, I might prefer them combined. Besides, 4 kings can be a difficult hand to beat.

Teddy ‘KGB’: “Lays down a monster… should have paid me off on that. The **** did you lay that down?” *throws tray of Oreos across room*

Mike McDermott: “Not Hungry?”

Teddy KGB: “Mr. Son of a *****, let’s play some cards!”

Houdini… (complete)

So, just to bore thrill my captive readers a bit more, I’ve decided to post my completed ‘Houdini Project’. It has changed slightly from before, after some general abuse and just a tiny bit of fire damage (pretty much just a standard weekday around here).

Anyway, tune in again tomorrow for something different-ish. And remember, only you can prevent Houdini fires. Or… something like that.

Houdini… (in progress)

Okay… I just posted a drawing two days ago. For a project that wasn’t finished. So what could be better than posting another drawing? For another project. That isn’t finished. It’s a two-fer. And a race to see which piece I actually complete first. What a nail-biter.

Beethoven: “Dude… I was like… totally here first!”

Houdini: ” Yeah, well… I know magic!”

Beethoven: “Muah. I know kung fu!”

Houdini: “I know the kung fu hustle!”

Beethoven: “Well played, sir… well played!”
