Tribute to Johnny Cash ...

Hunter Brand asked me to draw him something for his wall as a commission. He said he wanted me to have full artistic freedom to draw anything ... ANYTHING at all in the "MUSIC" theme. I chose the ICONIC Johnny Cash. This was pretty nerve racking for me ... I love him so much, but I also know how much he means to teaming millions of others. I didn't want to let anyone down. I believe I did a good job with the piece.

Feast Your EYES! Ladies and Gentlemen.

Cannibalism ... A Love Story

Cannibalism! ... A Love Story.

I hate the taste
I hate the smell
I hate the way those wrigglers yell
I hate their eyes
I hate their feet
I hate their rubber-chewy meat
I hate it, still I eat eat eat

My Turned Down LDV logo.

So, I entered the Lansing Derby Vixens logo design contest. I knew what was going to win ... that same old boring and lame "Derby" logo stereotype with the flaming wheel and the legs of a woman (that was my honest guess) ... But I was hoping that my interest in something unique and updated would be shared by more people. However, I was wrong. Below is the Image I submitted. If you want to see the logo they chose ... google for it. You'll see that it is exactly what I guessed would win. Boring! Oh, well.

Happy 70th Birthday, Dad!

I did this piece for my Dad's 70th Birthday present. I'm posting the picture that I used to make it from beneath it. The Picture is of my Dad and Mom as teen sweethearts ... sometime in the late 1950's this photograph was taken. I hope my art does the justice of the picture and helps bring back memories for my Father and Mother. My dad was an original Rockabilly greaser in those days ... They are way too cute in the picture!

Thick smoke slinking through chilled night

He barely put up any fight

Chamber ... done for Jon ...

This is a picture I did for my good friend, Jon Gordon. He is a fellow Lansing, MI based artist. He's far better than me and you can view his work at ART OF JON dot COM. I had a lot of fun with this piece. I didn't even know who the character "Chamber" was until last night. But I like his look and the concept. I am happy with how the piece turned out and I hope Jon is too.
