Pierce Stocking Overlook. All popped-out.

Andy Warhol: “Oh, Yoko. Tell her I’m filming this man eating a hamburger… it’s… transcendent. Okay, now the pickle!”

Guess who was too busy painting to do any photo editing again? Yup. This guy. The ‘painting’ is coming along, though (it should be posted next week). So… that’s something, right? Anyway, have a great weekend, everyone – cheers!

Dennis Reynolds: “Oh, you put wine in the soda can?”

Sweet Dee Reynolds: “You didn’t know, did you?”

Dennis Reynolds: “That’s good!”

Charlie Kelly: “Ahhh… you stole Frank’s idea!”

Charlie Kelly: “Well, it’s a good idea.”

Sweet Dee Reynolds: “It actually is a pretty good one.”

Seems like a good time for a M*A*S*H quote. Have a great weekend everyone!

A First Draft

More birds today…  of the ‘hunting and pecking’ variety. If this dude looks a little familiar it’s probably because he also posed for ‘ A Spot of Tea ‘. Although this time I drew him perched on a typewriter. So… there is that.

Grady Tripp (narrating): “So there it was. Somewhere in the night, a Manhattan book editor was prowling the streets of Pittsburgh; best-selling author at his side, dead dog in his trunk.”

The Big Three

Disclaimer…  there is NO big political statement intended here – this is merely an exercise in abstraction. Initially I was going to print / cut out these portraits as templates to spray-paint through. I still might try something like that, but while I’m out shopping for Krylon, hang on to those retinas everyone.

No. 10

I don’t think I’ve posted a painting in some time, so… let me start by apologizing to your cones and rods (I’ll find something a little less saturated for everyone’s recovering retinas tomorrow).

Today is an experiment. Back in the day (when I produced a successful marginal webcomic), I drew a strip referencing Andy Warhol / Pop Art. The outcry was… surprising. Honestly, I’m indifferent to most Pop Art, but if poor A.W. was still alive, the majority of my audience would have called for his white-haired head.

It’ll be interesting to see how this goes. Should you find yourself wanting to strangle me, please remember, my lungs are already full of spray paint from the above project. *cough cough wheeze*

See? I’m suffering, too.
