Plank In The Eye

Timothy A. Bear receives a plank to the eye.

Another pencil/ink hybrid. If I had more time I would prefer to ink every cartoon. Faith is actually a tad larger than Timothy, but here I switched their respective dimensions for SUBTLE EFFECT. Trust me, he's smaller.

Christine asks-"Dan, Can you please tell me why you spend time doing an oil of a pro-abort like Obama?"

Absolutely. I thought I could sell it on Ebay and make a few bucks. As of this writing the painting has a high bid of one dollar.

Anon asks-"Are there no black evangelicals in existence?

Barack Obama Portrait & An Inappropriate Cartoon

This is one of my miniature oils of Barack Obama. Ocassionally I'll post a similar painting to my Ebay auction page, but I'm happy to take requests. A 4 by 6 oil is $50, a 5 by 7 is $75 and an 8 by 10 is $100. You can contact me at faithmouse (at) yahoo [.] com.

Barack Obama portraits

Here are a few additional portraits I've created of the current Democratic presidential frontrunner, some of which I've posted directly to in their 'community blogs' section.

Barack Obama President Victory Pie

My most recent Barack Obama painting. I call this 'Obama Victory Pie.'

And now, an inappropriate cartoon featuring Faithmouse, Poot and Taint (adult content.)

I don't create as many cartoons as I used to in the past, mainly because I've been unsucessful in getting a syndicate to distribute Faithmouse and also because the hand-painted oils continue to do well. However, the cartoon continues to thrive online, as well as on a number of off-site forums where I regularly post original content.

Love to have the time to ink all of the newer cartoons, but for now I'm satisfied with the pencils.

Faithmouse ACEO 'Praising God With A Potted Plant' cartoon

Faithmouse original ACEO painting, praising God with a potted plant

Click above to view larger ACEO image.
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. Measuring only 2.5 x 3.5 inches, ACEO's are an excellent way for collectors to accumulate a private portfolio of original art at affordable prices.
Above is my very first ACEO Faithmouse cartoon which I'm currently offering on Ebay. The painting is based on a line cartoon I drew about a year ago. This is also my very first painting using gouache, which is sort of a very opaque watercolor. Creating a full color image the size of a Pokemon card was a challenge and took longer than it probably should have, but I'm not too unhappy with the results.
Most of these cards seem to sell for anywhere between 5 to 50 dollars, depending upon factors such as subject matter, attractiveness and detail. This particular card will be available for bidding for the next 7 days. An entertaining experiment, I hope.
Happy bidding!

This painting is currently on auction on Ebay, concluding on Wednesday, June 24, 2009.

Here are a few paintings from 2008, including a previous cardinal painting. I've painted a number of other bird art paintings as well-

Taint and Faith, together for the first time. Click image to view larger.

Sort of a conglomeration of noteable architectural styles from both Minneapolis and St. Paul. Secular's is based upon the now defunct Dayton's, and the clock tower building behind it is a landmark on University Ave. in St. Paul. Beyond that I'll have some a cluster of older Phillips neighborhood houses.

Bill Clinton Presidential Hair Exhibit

Presidential hair collection to go on display at The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia

Actually, the hair referred to in the story above belongs to just the first twelve U.S. presidents. In a similar contemporary exhibit I'm guessing that former President Bill Clinton's most historically appropriate hair would garnish the most interest, but perhaps not considering how many people have already had a peek.

Taint' Faithmouse Cartoons

I think I've done fairly well delivering on my A Sincere Proposal post from April 2006, when I pledged to work a more liberal perspective into the cartoon. I'm still planning to quit Faithmouse sometime soon once again, right after I get that one last cartoon out of my system.

Anyway, here's two very liberal cartoons in progess-

Taint in an anti-war Saint Valentine's Day cartoon

One of a few recent cartoons (posted off-site due to mature content) featuring Faithmouse's sister Taint. An anti-war Saint Valentine's Day cartoon, in progress.

Ms. StarMole and Minnesota Loon in a pro-gay marriage cartoon

Ms. StarMole and Minnesota Loon in a pro-Gay marriage cartoon in progress-a situation alluded to in a few previous cartoons including this Number 6/Gigantor cartoon from last June.

"Man that Amy Winehouse is worthy of Mad magazine.."

Google Groups BRAZILAJ KATOLIKAJ ESPERANTISTOJ- Now who could this be...?...Nissa!

Genshed has some nice words for Faithmouse in this Somni Forum post from December-

"The fetus-with-rifle ornament reminded me of some of Dan Lacey's work in his online comic "Faithmouse". He has one character who's a fetus in the womb - a cartoon womb with furniture, lights and a front door, which is often under assault by would-be abortionists. There's also a fetus-with-wings, with the charming name Neverborn. Yep, Lacey's a bit on the insane tip, but he draws really well."

Less anyone think I'm a traitor to the cause (I've been accused of this by my fellow Freepers at Free Republic in response to waving pro-Huckabee cartoons around on anti-Huckabee boards, and then Jim Robinson himself turned around and endorsed Huck the moment FR's most recent fundraiser drive ended, go figure) consider this recent anti-endorsement at Science Blogs-

"That man's website is a hodge podge of stupid. There is a link to Faithmouse, one of the most annoying web comics around. He backs Alan Keyes run for president. There is quit a bit about Terri Schiavo. They just cannot believe that the poor woman was brain dead for over a decade."

Yes! Still have it!

It's A Super Tuesday Cartoon!

#1 Google search result with a bullet!

Super Tuesday election results: don't forget to vote!

A Super Tuesday cartoon. Click above for larger image. Super-duperist.

An explanation of why conservatives turned out for Tuesday's election in much lower numbers than moderates and liberals; they simply forgot what day it was.

California has just very expediently rolled in for both Hillary and John McCain, so except for the window trimming I guess that just about wraps up the mystery from now until November. Professional conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter have a choice to either get behind the Republican nominee or continue to rail against both, but I imagine they'll stick to the latter as having two targets may prove twice as profitable for their respective brands than one. Beware of pundits with marketshare claiming philosophical integrity.

Like Timothy A. Bear, I also didn't possess the enthusiasm to make certain I knew what day it was. While I certainly dislike the Clintons, the situation as it now stands requires maintaining that dislike for the next nine months while learning to appreciate the subtler, non-traitorous qualities of John McCain. Supporting McCain has become a duty; unless between now and then my cartoon becomes syndicated and I can afford to farticate from high above it all regarding The Way It Should Have Been.
