AIN’T NO MATINEE WORK

If downtown Milwaukee seemed a little sad on Sunday, it’s probably because all the work from Rogues Gallery’s first-ever group art show came down. Don’t worry. They’ll recover. The new show they’re hanging is ridiculously good. And I’ll be glad to have my special movie-themed pieces back. Wanna’ see ’em? Here you go:

TITLE: “I Want My Two Dollars”
FILM: Better Off Dead
If you’re confused, watch this. Marvel at his persistence. And his sweet switchblade comb.

TITLE: “Human Centipede”
FILM: Human Centipede
My attempt to make something incredibly disgusting seem incredibly adorable. Mission accomplished?

TITLE: “The Blues Brothers”
FILM: The  Blues Brothers
This is me trying to sum up one of our favorite films of all time in one simple 11 x 17 panel. Piece of cake, right?

So what do you think? Should we do some more movie-themed pieces? More like the Blues Brothers piece? Do you think someone in Hollywood should make OUR version of HUMAN CENTIPEDE?

IT’S TIME TO LIGHT THE LIGHTS…

A few weeks ago, my friend (and fellow pen-pusher) Josh Peters asked if I wanted to be a part of a Muppet-themed art show in Columbus, Ohio. Stupid question. Of course I did. To be quite honest, some days, I sit at my drawing table, staring into the distance, hoping and waiting that someone– ANYONE– will call and ask me to be a part of a Muppet-themed ANYTHING.

And so, on December 3, the Rogues Gallery at Packrat Comics in Columbus, Ohio will host an opening most epic. It’s a gigantic group show. Or so I’ve been told. I don’t actually have a flier or anything promoting it yet. But you can click here and get the gallery’s info.

Sadly, I won’t be there. Nor will this drawing of Fozzie Bear:

Instead, I’m sending these three pieces:


A portrait of the master, Jim Henson. And a quote of his. There is no single artist I admire more.


The four main Muppets. I think it’s fair to say they’re the main ones, right? Also: I love drawing arms. A lot. Come watch me do live art sometime. Inevitably, I’ll draw some random arms. But these? Really, the arms are all you need to know who it is.


The first Republican I ever knew.

Hope some of you Columbus kids can make it out to see the work up close. Let me know if you do.
