Before I began to paint unicorns, I produced a number of straightforward Obama portraits which still rank prominently in Google under related search terms. Today's portrait is painted over a gold metallic acrylic base, which gives the painting a golden glow.

Obama Unicorn Palin Moose 'The Final Battle' Painting Removed By Ebay

My 'The Final Battle' Painting was pulled yesterday by Ebay because cropped images are not allowed in the general interest category. My mistake. However, I suspect this was the result of having a number of conservative activists monitoring my auctions for violations than it being a case of Ebay coming across the listing and finding a problem.

Again, there are regularly a number of nudes violating category which are viewable on Ebay, but I've become a target of the Obama-haters who as a dumb reflex target any art which fails to depict Obama as a dead monkey.

The painting is available for direct purchase for $300; please contact me at faithmouse (at) yahoo [.] com.

Most of my newer Obama Unicorn paintings are commissions, which has left less time to paint and post newer paintings for auction on Ebay. I'm currently asking $300 for a three figure/situational 8 by 10 inch oil similar to the painting I'm previewing below. A 4 by 6 inch portrait is still $50, and an 8 by 10 is $100 (with or without pancake.) Knowing these two price points should help you to step prices for anything between.

Here are two preliminary sketches for a client who wishes to remain private; one of these I may complete for auction later.

I'm currently being interviewed by a writer for a major media print article. I'll let you know if and when it sees publication.

Pajamas TV

Afterburner Pajamas TV

Two of my paintings appear in this 'Afterburner with Bill Whittle' President Obama's Unicorn Problem Pajamas TV video. Can't embed, so please click the image to view the video on the Pajamas TV site.

The artist who created the paintings used in this video is a long-time Freeper, signed autographs once at Gary Bauer's The Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., and was drawing pro-conservative cartoons which appeared widely across the conservative blogosphere before the startup of Pajamas TV. I remember being on top of the Rathergate story moment by moment as it happened, and very quickly spun out this cartoon to celebrate the victory of the 'bloggers in pajamas' or as I referred to them at the time, the 'pajamahadeen.'

Back when Faithmouse was a pro-Christian and pro-conservative apologetic, after the first time the cartoon was rejected by the newspaper syndicates, I decided to take the initiative and syndicate the cartoon myself. I printed and mailed more than two thousand of the above postcards promoting my services to every newspaper in the United States and a few in Canada. I thought I had come up with a pretty clever format in offering a template which would turn any part of a newspaper into a mini-Christian section which could support local advertising. For all my effort I received one positive response, but it was too depressing to syndicate to just one newspaper. I tried the syndicates a few additional times during the course of the next few years before finally throwing in the towel.

I was reflecting back on the many, many efforts I made to see Faithmouse in print, and remembered these cancelled and postmarked cards which were sitting in a cardboard box in my basement.

Portrait of Mrs. S., First Application Of Oil

I've been working on a few commissions between new Barack Obama On A Unicorn paintings, including this portrait of Mrs. S. which I began a few weeks ago.

Starting with the hair I apply the first application of oil over the previously completed acrylic sketch. When working from a photo I find that it helps to paint upsidedown, as that forces me to drop my assumptions and only paint actual colors and shapes.

If you think this is messy, you should see what's behind me.

I'll let this dry as much as it will overnight (I paint with quick drying, water based oils) and apply a second application tomorrow.

Now, back to unicorns.

Alamo City Pundit, 1

First Fleshbot Cartoon Removed By Ebay

The New Media Alliance (we CAN take America back!) posted this article on Tuesday, which may have actually been the first article questioning the legality of my auctions-

Obama Porn Arrives On Ebay - Warner Todd Huston

As I explained in my earlier post, I had to make a judgment call on whether the Taint auction violated any Ebay TOS, and I still think it doesn't, but Ebay has apparently responded to Alamo City Pundits actions.

Ebay has been very good to me. I'm not having a problem with Ebay, but with drives to manipulate the free market based upon political motivation. If you search 'nudes' at Ebay, you'll see a number of examples on the very first page of listings which display both frontal nudity and genitalia. My Fleshbot listing would be there today, except for the action of conservative activists.

Alamo City Pundit Leads Drive To Have Paintings Removed From Ebay

“Obama Porn” Artist Shifts From Obama PornTo Implied Child Porn and Full Frontal Nudity on Ebay - Alamo City Pundit

I'd like to respond to a few points here. The first is that Faithmouse's sister Taint is an adult. Taint drinks, smokes, curses, drives a car, and has an ongoing battle with a character named Fetus, who is in fact her fetus. A number of Taint cartoons demonstrating her adulthood can be found on the Faithmouse Forum at Portal Of Evil. Faith is very close in age to Taint and is married to BlackBear; together they have a family of six children. So, the blogger 'Your Humble Servant' is pulling this charge out of the air. It's untrue. Also, the painting is a parody of the Madonna photo up for auction at Christie's, which was taken when she was an adult. I'm guessing that the blogger, unfamiliar with the world of adult cartoons and illustrations which is especially popular right now in the low-brow art community, did his math like this: cartoon+nudity=child porn. I'll return to the subject of cultural misunderstanding in a moment.

The second point-Ebay allows nude artwork; there's a specific category for this, which all of these paintings are listed under. I know it doesn't allow 'insertion' or any other form of sexual activity, and none of these paintings violate that rule. I imagine the Taint painting might be categorized as adult only, although I sort of debated that when I posted it. Maybe, maybe not. I've seen many fine art pieces using exactly the same pose (including the Madonna photograph) from Classical artwork to the paintings of Courbet to Lucian Freud, but trouble is in the eye of the beholder, so Ebay might remove or re-categorize that one piece of artwork to the 'adult' section. Whatever they do is fine with me.

Point three, regarding cultural misunderstandings. This is pretty much why I grew tired of the ugliness and partisanship and got out of the Christian/Catholic conservative business (Faithmouse has been featured positively in the past on 'Your Humble Servant's' own blogroll.) The pointless World War I style trench fighting just wore me out.


The above, posted earlier this morning, was what I had hoped was a reasoned and restrained defense of my work in response to what I had at first assumed was an uninformed charge leveled at my Taint character. My mind had refused to grasp the reality of the actual complaint.

Ugly Betty Implied Child Porn

Update #2

What the's the full response I left on Alamo Pundit's blog, which he won't post but claims I deleted (!)

I appreciate the defense, guys.

JD, I want to thank you for the humor. Ebay may still drop my auctions, but I would recover just fine. I had originally assumed you were leveling an uniformed charge of ‘implied child porn’ against my Taint character, who is in fact of the age of consent; my mind refused to grasp the utter surreality that you were actually complaining about my ‘Ugly Betty’ painting. Just for the record, Betty is not nude from the waist down; she is clearly wearing her Guadalajara! Poncho. Barack and Penelope are indeed naked.

You may wish to Google the following search terms-

‘Faithmouse pro life’
‘pro Bush cartoons’
‘pro military cartoons’
‘Terry Schiavo cartoons’
‘Dan Lacey Faithmouse Alan Keyes Renew America’
‘Faithmouse Free Republic’

-or just search ‘Faithmouse’ in GIS to view my older cartoons. You’ll have to visit my fan forums or Fleshbot to see the newer ones.

There’s a reason I became disgusted by ‘my own side’ and bailed on my Christian/Conservative apologetic-it was because of asshats such as yourself who scream ‘liberty’ but strive to create less freedom in this country instead of more; it caused me to question who I was fighting for. You guys lost me big time. Yes, I paint and draw mouse porn, not to ‘push back the boundaries of what is acceptable in society’ but because it amuses the hell out of me. If you don’t like it, suck on it.

Anyway, I hope this is the last comment.

One more time...go away, you silly asshat.
