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.
My friend and frequent GOTA contributor Bob Lizarraga and I decided to pay a little homage to the late great comedianBuddy Hackett. I always wanted to start a band called Buddy and the Hacketts, but I suppose I'll have to make due with drawing him. Medium: Image above by 14, pen and ink wash. Image below by Bob, acrylic.
I've been goofing around and neglecting my work for the last few weeks, but sometimes it's necessary to retreat into total hermetic hibernation lockdown mode in order to recover from all the auto-tunedregurgitatedpop-culture dreckJerseyShore-ing around out there. Better now! I have nothing new to post other than this unfinished Sharon Stone portrait I whipped up while playing with the many talented folks over at Caricaturama Showdown 3000. New work coming soon. Medium: Graphite on paper, digital paint.
I took a little time this holiday weekend to practice digital painting techniques using my Wacom tablet. I still need many hours of practice, but here's what I worked on today. More celeb nonsense coming soon - look for Jeff Polage doing his Heidi Montag impression tomorrow, and then later in the week, a fresh look at Jack Nicholson. Medium: wacom tablet, photoshop.
From this week’s episode of “Hollywood Geographic”:
Biologists have recently unearthed a new species of worm: the Heiress Worm Lips. The worm lips, as seen here on Paris Hilton, are oversized, fright-inducing invertebrate that thrive as parasites on attention-hungry heiresses. Heiress Worm Lips are considered larger than humanly possible, and typically filled with Restylane. This species has little substance outside of the injected collagen and has difficulty forming big words. Worm lips can be found blowing kisses to photographers, wrapping themselves around bongs, kissing the butts of B-movie directors and latching on to Rick Salomon in the best-selling DVD, 1 Night in Paris.
I always loved Robert Ripley's cartoon panels documenting stories of the strange and unusual. It's amazing how perfectly the formula works when using the "news" presented in trashy celebrity tabloids and blogs. Medium: ink on paper, digital text.
