A Rush Limbaugh Exposition

Rush Limbaugh with a pancake on his head

I've painted a few additional Rush Limbaugh portraits or paintings featuring Rush, but these are the ones I can find. I've also drawn a half-dozen or so Faithmouse cartoons with Rush as the subject; you can locate a few of those if you're interested via Google Image Search.

Oh, and get better soon, Rush. It wouldn't be the same without you.

On a related note, I've decided that my New Years painting-in-progress of boorish lout Mark Simone was a little too kind, so here's a reboot-

A little smaller this time around and on sheet canvas.

Update / Oct 19, 2010

Thanks to The Village Voice for posting the 'Rush The Hut' painting and linking to this collection at their Photo OP Slideshow 'Rush Limbaugh and the Many Face of Evil: A Photo Gallery.'  

Oh, and that completed Mark Simone painting from last New Year's currently resides at the top of page 2 in GIS-

A Mark Simone New Year, In Progress

WABC right wing talk show host Mark Simone wishes you a very Happy New Year

In Progress: WABC New York Right Wing talk show host Mark Simone wishes you a very special New Year. His 2010 banner is written on a length of toilet paper.

I'm painting this on gessoed masonite, a variation from my usual work on canvas. I'll refine the acrylic underpainting a little more, seal with a clear acrylic, and then proceed to the oil.

Thanks to Gawker for including me in their 2009: Gawker's Year in Pictures.

Plans For 2010

painting preview for 2010

I've made a commitment to paint larger and more detailed work in 2010. The longest I've ever worked on a painting is a few days; I'm planning to produce at least one piece a month with a time investment of 1-2 weeks. I'll keep posting smaller paintings for Ebay, although I can't say if there will be more or less of those than in 2009. I would think less, but you never know. The larger pieces I won't be able to auction, but I can make high-quality and signed giclee prints available, similar to the work I did for PETA earlier in the year.

For the past few weeks I've tried to decide upon a theme for 2010. I've made a list of possible work, ranging from the pornographic to the political, and the religious, or a combination of the three. Undecided, I reviewed my list and realized I made a list. So I'll just continue as normal.

Singletree Productions has asked me to make a poster for their upcoming S&M Lawn Care. Thanks, Mark-I'll have that for you in a few weeks.

My first detailed large work for 2010 will actually be the Tinsley Mortimer pancake painting from a few months ago. I missed out on having the painting appear on her upcoming CW Network reality show because I couldn't stop working on it. I know Tinsley is dissapointed, but she's getting a three thousand dollar painting for $125. Once she receives the canvas all may be forgiven.

Again, smaller Ebay work will continue into 2010. For New Years Eve I would like to honor with a new pancake portrait WABC Right-Wing talk show host and Mark Levin fill-in Mark Simone, who recently emailed me to let me know that I am an idiot. Mark, it will be a fat pleasure.

Bill Bernanke And Barack Obama Nude On A Unicorn Head 'South Of The Border'

a painting of Barack Obama and Fed Chairman Bill Bernanke on a unicorn, going South of the Border

I was reminded this morning by Time Magazine's selection of Bill Bernanke as 'Person Of The Year' of this painting of Bill Bernanke and Barack Obama Nude On A Unicorn which I posted a month or two ago to Ebay but neglected to add it to the blog. I call this painting South Of The Border.

Christmas Card, In Progress

I haven't send out an online Christmas card before, but I think the above commission in progress should make for a nice one. Sometime in the next week I'll post a page where you'll be able to email an image of the completed painting to friends or family for the holidays.

Merry Christmas!

Two SA NSFW Painting Requests

Details of two adult content painting requests from SA's Laissez's Faire subforum-

A new Orly Taitz Pancake Birther. This is my third Orly.

Barack Obama and Henry Paulson engage in a coordinated activity.

I'll usually paint a layer of oil over the top of rough acrylics such as these, but I thought these looked fine as they were and let them be.

Both of these paintings were done as favors for long-time supporters of my work on SA. They were also intended as drafts for a newer, more developed theme which I'll introduce in 2010.

I currently have a half dozen Christmas commissions in process at the same time which I should have completed in the next day. I'm planning on posting some newer paintings to Ebay soon afterwards at a non-auction fixed price, for anyone who would like to immediately pick up a quick present in time for Christmas. I also still have some time for a commission or two; I'm currently asking 100 for a custom 5 by 7 portrait.

Vladimir Putin With Pancakes On His Head

A painting of Russian Premier Vladimir Putin with pancakes on his head

A painting of Russian Premier Vladimir Putin with pancakes on his head. I briefly had this posted to Ebay a year ago, then decided I didn't like it for some forgotten reason. I suspect I was offended by the crumpled folds of his suit, parts of which I've now transformed into the Ural Mountains.

What could say Christmas more than a painting of Vladimir Putin with pancakes on his head?

Nobel Prize Obama Rework

Nobel Prize Obama rework detail

Detail of the nearly completed rework of the 'Nobel Prize Obama' painting from a month and a half ago.

You're An Idiot, A Fool. Do You Have A Wife?

You're an idiot, a fool. Do you have a wife? Would you like your wife to be insulted like that? Do me a favour hang yourself - 'special rate'

Obama was nearly very carefully into the study with his brimming hot chocolate when he first heard the distressed chorus. He placed the cup on the divan and in bounds was up the stairs and into the master bedroom.

Michelle was a cornered puma peering out of the cave of her huge chiffon dress, the light from the laptop casting sunset upon the bed. Malia and Sasha clutched one another in the far corner of the bedroom. They were screaming. The screen commanded all.

Obama pryed the computer from his wife's outstreched arms, and spinning the painted image away from his family he faced the horror
