india ink and wash on illustration board
This is a photo in lieu of a proper scan, but I am scrunched for time here! This will be one of the five pieces that I will have in the Heroes and Villains show at St. Cece's Pub in Corktown starting tonight at six. This is a very cool place run by very nice folks. It's an old church complete with stained glass windows. So, come on by today through Sunday, look at some art, eat some good food and have a drink or two. The artists that will be representing are: Bill Pulkovski, John Marroquin, Kelly O'Hara, Tony Miello, Danny Dunbar, Erick Gutierrez (sp), Chris Sanchez, among others.

This Thursday through Sunday I will have a few pieces of art in this show. St. Cece's is an old church converted to a pub and is a very cool place right in the heart of Corktown. The show will feature art by the area's finest talent. And me.
The opening is Thursday night at six and we will also be selling prints of our works. C'mon down, have a beer, a meal and check out some art.

So…. our older dog came in the house the other night with a mouthful of blood. After checking to see that she was fine, I ventured out into the night to see what she got a hold of. Puddle of blood. Check. Opossum leg. Check. Ugh, she bit the leg of an opossum right off and there it was. I felt bad for the little critter and hoped that he will survive the attack. Maybe we will see him again emerging from the shadows from time to time with a wooden leg, the Opossum Warlord of the neighborhood. Legends are born in this way. This is what I tell myself.

Here is last week's Stoopid Stuf cartoon sans color and text. This one has to be one of my favorites of all the cartoons that we have produced. I don't know why, it just makes me giggle. Sometimes humor hits you over the head and sometimes it's very subtle, like this one. Head on over to Stoopidstuf.com to see it with Kevin's colors and make sure to pick up a copy of Bifocals and Beer Goggles, the first Stoopid Stuf collection.

Here's another wonderful driver. My buddy Bill and I were on our way through Detroit to go to a meeting to discuss an upcoming gallery show and we were driving west on I-94 to the Lodge. Now, anyone who is familiar with this interchange, it's not a difficult one. Well, this cretin flies up on me and does the whole weaving back and forth to let me know that she wants me to get out of her way. I'm doing above the speed limit and there are cars ahead of me. Nowhere for me to go. This type of behavior really pisses me off and considering how close she was to my jeep, I slowed down to the speed limit. Not good enough for Mama Cass as she sped even closer, not thinking that was possible. As we finally entered the new freeway she flies up and around me nearly hitting me in the process. Then, she proceeds to cut off a couple more drivers and gets off at the exit for Motor City casino forcing other drivers to veer out of her way. Of course, she was doing something that was as life and death as gambling away her money. Other people's lives be damned!
Of course, besides having a huge head, it was swept back to a point and she had the usual Visigoth features; angry expression, huge protruding brow, sneer, etc. She had a mouth that looked like something straight out of a Dr. Suess book, very Grinch-like. Plus, her hair was pulled back way too tight at the top of her head. I should be a little more compassionate, as she was probably in a lot of pain.
Well, that's it for this week's episode of the Visigoths. Stay tuned for more, I'm sure.

Here are two sketch card commissions that were done recently. The first is a bikini girl in a Christopher Lee pose from the '73 flick, The Wicker Man and the second I had free reign with, so decided to use the bikini girl with that lagoon guy. Hit me up if you want your own personal sketch card.
