BREAKING NEWS Archeological Discovery: Have you ever wondered how Giorgio Tsoukalos is so certain ancient aliens once roamed the Earth and mingled with human beings? Do you really think he styles his stratospheric bouffant that way just because the man loves his hair products? The truth is, Giorgio is a time traveling alien sent to Earth to star in a TV show called Ancient Aliens in order to teach humanity about our true origins. Embedded in his hair are nano transmitters used to pick up signals sent from fourth dimensional aliens flying exquisite golden spaceships. Not only do they divulge secrets to Giorgio, they insist he wear his brown three-piece suit every day. The higher Giorgio styles his hair, the stronger the signal becomes. Viewers of his show may have noticed his hair growing higher over the course of the seasons and now they know why. How high will Giorgio's hair be on the next season of Ancient Aliens and what new secrets will he reveal? (Medium: graphite on paper, digital paint)
Let The Evidence Speak for Itself
Recently, archeologists unearthed a curious golden figurine while excavating Mayan ruins in Palenque. The figurine appears to depict a large-haired humanoid waving his hands with emphatic excitement. A small monkey holding some sort of smoking apparatus appears at the figurine's sandal-clad feet. Could this be evidence that Giogio Tsoukalos lived among the Mayans as a alien entity who taught the people advanced astronomy and hair-styling techniques....as ancient alien theorists believe?

Does this ancient aboriginal cave painting in Australia prove the theory of Giorgio Tsoukalos' time traveling abilities? Yes it does, without a doubt. (Photo from Mysterious Universe. Trickery supplied by 14. Until I figure out how to add a Facebook button to my blog, please visit 14 here.)
Our EXCLUSIVE investigation into the origins of Donald Trump's hair can now be revealed. While the untamed, flesh-ish colored fur-like thing resting atop Trump's head may look like his own hair, our investigators were shocked to discover its true origin: a genetically modified rodent. We learned that Trump employs a team of scientists consisting of biologists, geneticists and cryptozoologists who work full-time behind the ornate golden doors of a secret laboratory located inside Trump's gaudy lavish New York penthouse. Their job is to create and raise a large herd of furry, chimera-like rodents consisting of the spliced DNA of orangutans, rabid weasels, caterpillars and most troubling, a dead chupacabra found flattened on a remote road in East Texas. Trump barges into the laboratory every morning to mercilessly grab a woeful creature and slap it atop his head. The younger, smaller creatures are used as Trump's eyebrows and if you look closely, you may observe them curled up and sleeping on the hot orange flesh above The Donald's angry eyes.

I know, it's gross, but I stumbled across a photo of Paris Hilton attempting to seductively gnaw on a popsicle and decided to reinterpret it in full-color Absurd-O-Vision. UPDATE: I'm not posting on Gallery of the Absurd as much due to being busy with too many projects, but I post my latest work, works in progress, and any old thing that happens to inspire me on my Facebook page. Visit me there if you're interested in seeing more ridiculousness. Medium: digital paint.
Not much to say about this one other than I participated in a facebook caricature contest and the subject was Ryan Gosling. Medium: graphite on paper, digital paint. To see more frequent updates and more of my work, please visit the 14 Facebook page.
When I first spotted Madonna's new fragrance ad over on D-listed, I thought it was a piece of satire. I laughed and wondered who the clever artist was that came up with such a dead-on artistic interpretation of the overuse of Photoshop in advertising. Good one. As I looked closer, I realized the ad was REAL. Hilarious!! Who does Madonna think she's kidding? If she really wanted to be provocative, she could have posed naked without all the smoke and mirrors of lighting, makeup, photoshop and other mysterious trickery. As a service to my fellow humans, I went ahead and removed all the Photoshop so Madonna and that toxic sludge she calls "fragrance" may be presented with more authenticity. I made an uncensored version of the ad too - it can be viewed here, but beware if bare boobs give you a puritan meltdown or if your boss is lurking around. Medium: digital paint.
That's the idea one of my favorite artists, Chuck Frazier had in mind when he drew this disconcerting portrait of marital bliss. He figured since both troubled actors have been featured non-stop in both the tabloids as well as mainstream "real" news (which has pretty much devolved into frivolous, brain-rotting entertainment these days) Lindsay and Charlie would become the ultimate hot mess trainwreck celebrity couple and would give the likes of Anderson Cooper and Dr. Phil hours of mindless fodder to natter on and on about. What's even more remarkable about this piece is that Chuck came up with the idea before the announcement of Charlie and Lindsay's cameo appearance in the upcoming Scary Movie 5. Spooky action at a distance? Scary! Anyway, Chuck knows I like to color things in, so he allowed me to add color to his impeccable line drawing (BELOW). Thanks Chuck!
