Revolutionary Road

Here are some Charlie Rose drawings that would not go right. The Guests were Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet promoting Revolutionary Road, I was drawing with a sharpie fine point pen, I haven't done a Rose drawing in a while and I think it shows in these drawings. . .

The best one of the night helped that DiCaprio stayed the full hour. Just an observation but he has really become a weedy older man and I think should gain a ton of weight and play Orson Wells in a movie.
I don't know, this is clearly not Di Caprio, I think this guy is on corner gas actually.

My last attempt at Kate Winslet. I wish I could say it was a commentary on her blankness but It's just an example of my lack of talent.


Here she is as a bobble head, Women I always find harder to draw then men, personally, Kate Winslet is no exception

This one is closer but I can't tell you why, it seems more in motion, more alive, more of a speaking likeness, but still didn't quite go in the right direction.


Here she is as I try to define the shapes more and carve out her face, unfortunately that lead to too much emphasis on certain features and she came put manly and monstrous.

The first drawing of the night. Sloppy and ill conceived. Just when you think you understand drawing enough to wing it with out thinking a series like this comes along...

My gift to you is....... Quiting

Merry Christmas and a happy New year, Happy Holidays. Here's some new topical Quity's for you to enjoy..

We need those government bailouts! Wii music isn't free you know.
There is no honor in Quiting...especially when you shoot the man who hired you to kill some one, Quiting was harsh in Feudal Japan.

Dudley gave Quity his present a month early this year.... He didn't even bother to re wrap it.

Crappy Christmas Gift ideas

Nothing...nothing about this Matt Lauer impersonator makes me want to buy the watch he's selling
Long term care is fun right? I'm all for representin' in toys but this is a little far. though I suspect those two in back might have had something to do with him being in a wheelchair.

This entire book is superman saving people and them thanking him. It teaches the important lesson "if your in trouble wait for superman to save you and don't forget to thank him, you ungrateful shit"

Power comes out the barrel of a gun as Mao said but who remembers the guns when these words will live in history as his albatross forever.

Bad Day at Black Rock





Some sketches I did a while back while watching "Bad Day at Black Rock" An interesting Post World War 2 western. It's set after the war in a small town named black rock. and although it's not set in the west it's unmistakeably a western. Spencer Tracy stars as a one armed vet come to the town to deliver a medal to a Japanes farmer but things go bad because of a terrible town secret. Also Tracy preforms Judo in the film knocking out Ernest Borgnine. nuff said.

W.

W. for worst.
Oil/Gouche on canvas
completed over the last two years, time worked on in total roughly one week.
What can be said about this man that hasn't already been said? That vacant stare, those petulant lips. What can be said about a man, a president, who's finest moment was standing on a pile of rubel and rallying a nation to hunt down and kill a man, and then almost eight years later not accomplishing that one goal. Katrina, Iraq, Warrentless Wire tapping, Gitmo, My Pet Goat, The new depression, the list goes on and on, they misunderestimated just how bad he was.
His own words sum it up best.
"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." —Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004

the little clown prince of crime

this seems inappropriate. And where's the accompanying two face out fit? If this kid shows up to your door you should give him some sleeping pills instead of candy.. inappropriate.

"The entire Sun is blowing significantly less hard - about 20-25% less hard - than it was during the last solar minimum 10-15 years ago.
