Art Poster Discontinuation, And PETA Collaboration

I'll be discontinuing my art poster offer as of Sunday, May the 3rd, which will be the last day you can order a poster of the Obama Victory Unicorn painting, which also comes with a hand drawn Faithmouse cartoon. Thanks to everyone who has purchased a poster in the past.

The following weekend, in collaboration with PETA, I'll be offering my first limited edition giclée print series. Peta will be showing this painting at their official protest at the Kentucky Derby and will link to the print on their blog. A portion of the proceeds of the print sales will go to this very worthwhile organization.

Update 5/25/2009

I changed my mind, and the posters are available again. As before, each poster includes an original Faithmouse cartoon. Please click on the sidelinks to order. Also, you can now order any previous painting or cartoon as a poster; just email me separately with the info on which specific image you'd like to order.

Shower Nude Beckie And Rio Rita Alaine

shower nude

Fan and collector Beckie came up with a nifty idea for a nude portrait; do it wet! I first attempted to paint this on the opposite side of the glass but forgot that I use water-soluble oils.

Rio Rita Alaine

Here's a blast from the past; an unfinished portrait from my studio years at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. Former Rio Rita Alaine hunted me down online and after a search I unearthed this forgotten portrait. I'll post the completed version sometime during the next week.

Obama Defuses The North Korean Rocket, Pre

Barack Obama with the help of his unicorn Penelope defuse the North Korean rocket, pre

Barack Obama with the help of his unicorn Penelope defuse the North Korean rocket, in progress. I'll attach a flashlight to the end of Penelope's horn to help Obama see as he pulls the wires out of the rocket.

I have this, the next Gawker painting, and one other item nearly completed. I've sort of been waiting to feel better to work (diverticulitis) but the pharmacy gave me the wrong presciption in the wrong amount, and to compensate my doctor gave me an additional week's double-dose of antibiotics which not only make me sick, but hallucinate. So, let's paint.

The good news is, I've lost enough weight to pull into the equivalent recommended weight range for my height. It's sweet to be healthy!
