Dick Cheney 5x7

I'm thinking of doing a bunch of folks from the Bush administration. Mr. Cheney starts on eBay at a mere $5.00!

This is an experimental piece. I painted it on masonite instead of paperboard. The paperboard takes ink a lot better. The ink tends to fish eye on top of the bare masonite. I think the trick is to lay down a layer of matte acrylic medium first as it accepts ink very nicely.

zombie couple

Here's a nice zombie couple that I finished up last week. I'm working hard trying to finish up several commissions. has become quite busy since Eddie Breen linked to it. I have several drawings that I need to post here as well but I've been unable to do so because my classroom was broken into a few weeks ago and I still haven't gotten my stolen Mac Mini back from the police. There are a few drawings on that hard drive that I don't have anywhere else. I've also been working on a couple of pieces to put up on eBay for cheap, so stay tuned!

Eddie Breen

Eddie Breen is a piggyback artist who sometimes throws zombies into his compositions. His work is funny, thought provoking and always at least a little bit creepy. I think he's doing one of the most creative things in art on the internet today. His site is worth bookmarking.

zombie debutante

I haven't posted new drawings to this blog in a while. This is just one of a few that I've done recently. Unfortunately my classroom was broken into over the weekend and my computer was stolen. The other pictures are all on that hard drive and I've already sent the originals off to their buyers. A suspect has been apprehended (NOT one of my students) and the Mac Mini recovered. Unfortunately it's in an evidence locker at the sheriff's office. I'm in the process of getting it released. I'm hoping all the data is intact.
The back side of my room is equipped with 30+ year old plexiglass windows. Over the weekend someone thought it would be a good idea to start a small fire outside one and try to melt their way in, or maybe it was some sort of heat ray, I really don't know. In any event, the fire/heat ray didn't melt a big enough hole to grant ingress so the miscreant ended up bludgeoning their way in. I assume they left by the door once they had my property in hand.
