A few things

A preview of a painting which I should have posted in two days, photographed besides the previously posted Steven Slater revision)-

A new entry on my NSFW blog: a request via Poe-News.

I had planned this revision of my previous Steven Slater painting to a be criticism of the PR person who is now handling Steven and nixed the opportunity for the previous auction to be plugged on Good Morning America, but at the last moment I decided to overpaint the image and make it into something surreal instead.

I've always had a distaste for people in the entertainment business who pick fights with one another.  Life is short; let's just move on.

Why I Pulled My Steven Slater Jetblue Ebay Benefit Art Auction

An explanation of why I pulled my Steve Slater Jetblue Benefit Auction painting, which at this time yesterday was at a bid of $535 with 74 Ebayers watching-

I tried from the start of the auction to contact Steve in order to arrange transferring the payment for the painting to his account, which would have been pretty simple for Steve if he had an email address and didn't mind signing up for Paypal.  Stories regarding the auction appeared on Gawker, ABCnews.com, MSNBC.com, The Wall Street Journal, etc., so I assumed if Steve was following the news he would eventually notice the story and contact me.  For the record, I also emailed his online legal defense fund site asking for a way to directly contact Steve, but they never responded as well.

A week ago I received a phone call from Good Morning America.  They wanted to air a promo on the painting but needed some word back from Steve or a family member that they were aware of the auction and approved of it, which I can understand; if GMA was going to plug the auction they didn't want to feel scammed. 

Finally by way of a message on Steven Slater's lawyers phone I was able to contact Steven's publicist, Howard Bragman of Fifteen Minutes.  Howard personally responded immediately, declining to help but offering best wishes on the auction and a promise of maybe sometime in the future setting up a Steve Slater legal fund which anyone could contribute to.

So, I decided to pull the auction.  I couldn't in good faith accept someone else's money and then transfer it over to a second-hand party.  I was dissapointed that Mr. Bragman could have helped with the auction but didn't. 
I'd like to thank all of the people who bid on the auction and all who were following it.  The good news is that Steven Slater probably doesn't need your $535 dollars any longer. 

Brett Favre Pancake Unicorn Painting Redux

The Brett Favre unicorn painting from last year is receiving some renewed interest online.  Unfortunately, the painting is long gone and this is the best photo I have-

Here's an improved image, post Photoshop manipulation-

You can click on either image to see a larger version.

The face on the football in the painting belongs to Minnesota sportswriter Sid Hartman.  The tail on the unicorn is a tornado, referencing the at-that-time volatile Green Bay Packers / Minnesota Vikings rivalry. The future sky was a vision of Brett's new aspiration.  The ground was scorched earth all around.  I can't remember what the balloons represented.

Timely I suppose considering the recent new regarding Brett cellphoning photos of his penis.

Last year, my wife who is a professional harpist played Ave Maria at a Christmas Day church service attended by Brett. Our joke at the time was that she had thrown Mr. Favre a Hail Mary of her own.

A Michael Jackson Portrait

Revised from an initial version posted a few days ago-so much so that it's really a different portrait now. 

A Michael Jackson Portrait - Ebay Art Auction

Here are two other MJ's I painted and posted to Ebay during the past week.  Both were revised shortly before the auctions closed.
