An honor to be despised by both.

New 'Female Force' Michelle Obama, Year One' Comic Features One Of My Paintings, Or So Someone Tells Me Which Is Nice... I Guess!

Eddie at Obamafoodarama emailed to let me know that she discovered one of my paintings incorporated into the recently released Bluewater Productions 'Female Force / Michelle Obama/Year One' comic book-

Here's my artwork as it appears on page 16-

I emailed Bluewater Production's President Darren Davis a few days ago suggesting he at least send me a few free copies but he has yet to respond to my offer. That sent me thinking.

My initial reaction to this was feeling a bit miffed; after all, Bluewater used my artwork and didn't pay for or acknowledge the use. Comic book companies are in the business of working with artists so this is sort of like NASA forgetting to put an engine on a rocket.

I believe what's going on here is that Bluewater is well-aware of the full content of my Obama oeuvre and for that reason chose not to acknowledge me.  I'm the only artist used in the book who isn't credited. After all, I am the Obama Porn painter. Hard to miss that.

Upon reflection all I can say is 'thanks.' So, thanks!  But I would still like some free issues. Four bucks is a hell of a lot of money to pay for a comic book.

Two new Michael Jackson 'teardrop' paintings in progress.  One of these is a commission but the other I'll make available on Ebay. The glitter you see is part of the gold metallic acrylic underpainting.

I have three new Obama Unicorn paintings in progress; one featuring Alan Cox and a pair of drumsticks.

Macramed Pancake Beret, By Plinko

Plinko at POE NEWS macramed this marvelous pancake beret for me, the result of a suggestion made to him a month ago-

The macramed pancake. He created all of this from scratch, working without a pattern...

Pancake on the skillet base....

Plinko wearing his creation. Fantastic!  Thanks Plinko...I'll wear it proudly.

ROFLcon Poster Update

Still have to add eight more participants to the image; near Moot will be a frame for Awkward Family Photos, the flag from Charlie The Unicorn's horn will read 'Know Your Meme', and Eugene Spafford is the uppermost cherubim.  'Con' will be written on Penelope's butt.  Again, once I begin painting oil over this acrylic underpainting I think it will start to pull together.

ROFLcon Poster Update

Finally beginning to look like something.  Hopefully I'll have the acrylic completed later today and can then begin the oil overpainting.  My complete date for this is a week from today, March 14.

ROFLcon Poster / Three Wolves In Progress

Three Wolves and a few additional participants make appearances in this updated image of the ROFLcon poster, in progress-

Once the acrylic underpainting is completed I coat the canvas with an irridescent-gel-white acrylic sludge which I then tint and overpaint with oil.  Very little of what you see here won't appear somewhat differently in the finished image.
