This is hard to admit, but I have a photo torn from Star magazine years ago of George Clooney eating a hot dog. It's been taped up on my easel for years. Once it fell off and got trampled upon and has had paint spilled on it, but the crumpled and worn photo still remains in its rightful place and is always present with each new illustration I crank out. Twisted, I know. Medium: graphite and digital paint.
The Madonna Chipmunk is a fame-seeking, scrawny little rodent that annoys most anyone who comes in contact with her. Her range of habitat is vast, worldwide and relentless. The Madonna Chipmunk is easily spotted wherever opportunies arise for her to promote herself. Really, it is difficult to avoid spotting her...unless you live in a cave.
In honor or Halloween, here's a creepy portrait of Vincent Price in his role as the diabolical, organ-playing mad scientist Dr. Phibes. If you enjoy campy horror flicks, you can't go wrong with The Abominable Dr. Phibes or Dr. Phibes Rises Again. Medium: graphite on paper, digital paint.
Update: A few of my readers have asked me why I don't post as much celeb satire here as I used to. It was a LOT of work to keep up with the current trashy gossip and crank out so many weekly posts. It began to drain me and I suffered massive burn out. Those mind-numbing Kardashians and Lohans can really do a number on you if you aren't careful. These days, I still find the occasional inspiration in a paparazzi photo or a silly news story over at Dlisted, but I'd rather just be an artist and draw whatever I feel like drawing on any given day. One day I might wake up and decide to work on my deck of playing cards- another day I might be in the mood to paint Madonna (currently in process) or Karl Lagerfeld (swoon), or I might visit a grocery store and see some confounding new chemical food-type thing and want to draw that. Thanks for reading my blog!
