Happy Halloween

Inspired by Eddie Fitzgerald's lovely post celebrating today. This popped out over breakfast.

A reminder as to why one should never! Ever! put drinks down on a working desk.

Chucks Moran

I really shouldn't draw dead people, they aren't here to pay me back with a drawing of their own, of my fucked up head. But in my defense I have to say, I didn't sit down with the intent to draw him. Then there he was.
He was one of the best pastel portrait artists in the country. He was also the first guy I ever meet that was truly into fat ladies.

Killa Gorilla with a Gun T-Shirts at Cafe Press

Why? Because I'm too busy/lazy to have a silk screen made, and I spilled water on the original this afternoon.
Really It was just because I wanted a shirt with him on it.
Be warned their sizes run big. I Normally wear a large, but I'm a medium in their shirts.

Oh, if you click on the title it'll take you to Cafe Press.
Thanks again for stopping by.

I didn't have time to write an explanation last night.
Marc he looked like he had just breathed his last so I added the wispy soul rising from his mouth. A side note* In the Philippines they think your soul leaves through your navel. This belief leads to the men to avoid cleaning out their belly buttons.....ever. Causing a sizable hardened plug to form in there. I know this because my friend Hector who did a bit of time there in a medical facility used to pop them out while the poor unsuspecting bastards were in for unrelated surgery. It was quite alarming for them to wake with soul plug removed.

Diego, I drew this just doodling around again. Then noticed this fellow looked like Owen Wilson, so I added the title.
I have nothing against Mr.Wilson, other than him trying to croak himself. It's always a head scratcher when someone that seems to have everything one could want, decides to jump ship early.

Fame can be an ugly business that leaves you in the constant glare of the spotlight. Luckily I'll never have to deal with the kind of fame where everyone on the planet knows who you are as you walk by them. But I've seen it in action. Where everyone within fifty feet of famous person is staring at them. Either waiting to say something to them, proposals, schemes and what not. Or just hoping that the famous person will gaze back at them and declare them worthy and call them into their inner circle if even for a few seconds. It must be incredibly creepy at times to be in the center of that vortex of leeches.

That being said the only thing that would truly make me want to shake off this mortal coil would be living in some semi-veg or crippled state. If someone has to change my diapers... well then...Waiter could I get a triple dose of demerol please? Ahhhh....thank yo..

Another Step

This is what happens when you don't plan. Your drawing can turn into a too busy textural nightmare. I still might be able to pull this out. We shall see.

More Brush Pen

I was reading an August Newsweek about the slaughter of Mountain Gorillas, and this jumped out.
I also learned that brush pen takes a while to dry. Smudgey eraserness.

Hey Shaun,
Here are the stats and what it looks like.

One Of The Joys Of Being A Cartoonist

With cartoonist friends. Is that on your birthday you get a bunch of cool drawings.
This one is by Robert Ryan Cory.

A quick note: You no longer have to be a blogger to comment on my blog I will be moderating which comments actually get posted thank you.

Having delicious cakes made for you ain't bad either. Though that has nothing to do with being a cartoonist.
