Coke Bottle with Flowers


I intended to paint the Coke. But then I drank it all. It’s kinda my thing.

(Also…tomorrow Annabelle and I kick off our Big MFA Program World Tour. 2013. Hopefully I won’t say anything too ridiculous. See you in a bit!)

It’s a Two-for-Thursday! Because… you know… I couldn’t make up my mind. I just hope you weren’t expecting pens.

James Bond: “… not exactly Christmas, is it?”

Q: “Were you expecting an exploding pen? We don’t really go in for that anymore.”

Complements of Spring


A flower-dealy finally showed up outside, so I thought I’d introduce some CrAzY complementary colors today. Eye-protection might be helpful. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Francis Whitman: “You love me!”

Peter Whitman (with Francis in a choke-hold): “Yes I do!”

Jack Whitman: “I love you too, but I’m gonna’ mace you in the face!”

Chica del Sol

I’m not sure what’s up with all the color I’ve been using lately. Too much sun, maybe. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Buster Bluth (climbs out of car trunk): “Mexico.”

Narrator: “In fact, Buster was in Santa Ana, a town six minutes inland from his own, but the combination of losing his glasses and breathing carbon monoxide had impaired Buster’s judgement.”

Buster Bluth (seeking shelter under a trampoline): “Eeehhh… this shall keep me safe from the hot Mexican sun. ”

Pop Art Armor

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

B.J: “What’s Frank up to?”

Hawkeye: “I think he’s vacuuming Korea. Eisenhower’s coming; he wants everything just so.”

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.
