Obey The Kitty Painting, In Progress

I've been trying for the past two weeks to complete a painting of Chairman Meow with a pancake on his head for Kevin at Obey The Kitty. Late Tuesday there's a chance this will finally occur. You can see in this photo a new Michael Jackson portrait in progress as well.

Ray Noland of Run Blago Run informs me that the UPS parcel containing my portrait of Roy Blagojevitch with a pancake on his head made it to the front desk of his Chicago show at 10 AM on Friday, disappeared, and then reappeared once the show was over. Better pancake next time.

Just before scanning this painting I realized I had forgotten the pancake, so I borrowed the pancake from my recent Robocop With A Pancake On His Head portrait and Photoshopped it onto Dan's head. I'll revise the painting with an actual pancake before listing it for auction on Ebay.

I've decided that the painting looks just fine without the pancake-

A Michael Jackson Art Portrait

a Michael Jackson art artwork portrait

This is currently one of my more popular Michael Jackson art paintings; a portrait of Michael with his gloved hand to his head and a tear rolling through his mascara, turning from white to black.

I usually paint these in a few stages, first with an intial application of paint which I let dry for a day or two before reworking. I nearly didn't post this painting, thinking it really didn't work for some reason, but the response has been very positive.

I've been blessed to land on page one of Google for 'Michael Jackson portraits' and 'Michael Jackson paintings' which has brought my Ebay auctions an intense worldwide vistorship. Therefore, I've been painting and posting as many MJ portraits as possible.

Therefore I've kept about a half dozen very patient people waiting for painting and portraits which are all 80% complete. What I normally do in a situation like this is send everyone a little something extra. I'll try to tie up ends in the next day or so.

Post Compilation Acknowledgement

A fan emailed me recently on Ebay to tell me something was wrong with the code on one of my posts; it was nothing but links to other sites. I told her that what she had seen was something I really don't have the time to do anymore, but which I try to find the time to do because I am thankful; and that is to post acknowledgements to the many followers of my artwork who repost and thereby promote my work online. Here's a partial list of said posts, collected from the past day. If you find an additional post or have made one yourself, please email me and I'll be happy to add it to the list- Barack Obama prays painting You Are Not Alone You Are Not Alone You Are Not Alone You Are Not Alone Michael Jackson Memorial Ticket Pancake MJ Memorial Ticket Pancake Paintings Paintings MJ painting MJ painting ban ban Tupac Jackson painting Faithmouse North Korean Rocket cartoon;topic=30725.0 Obama Unicorn link Faithmouse John McCain cartoon Palin pancakes MJ Memorial Ticket pancake link Obama unicorns Obama Unicorns Obama Unicorns MJ memorial ticket pancake Obama unicorns You Are Not Alone Palin Pancakes Broadway Obamas link Michael Tupac FR reference Elephant embryo painting MJ portrait MJ portrait Palin Pancakes Obama Unicorns paintings Obama Unicorns Rahm Emanuel Bagel and Lox MJ You Are Not Alone The Final Battle Putin Pancake (from May) You Are Not Alone Palin winking pancake Barack Obama portrait Obama unicorn painting

My OPUS: Sick Michael Jackson Appreciation Thread

I now have the honor of being banned from both Democratic Underground and Free Republic. I had actually emailed FR twice earlier in this year asking to be banned, but I never received a response. The FR ban was personally administered by Jim Robinson, the founder of FR, himself-

An oil painting of Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur in heaven titled 'Only God Can Judge Me' after the Tupac song-

I see some similarity betweeen these two Black artists, both battling critics within their own racial groups and the media at the same time, both being very spiritually centered and choosing to express their faith as a unique statement through their work, but both eventually consumed by a haunted past they could not escape.

So, God bless them both. It's nice to think of them both together and eternally at their most hopeful.
