My father always say’s his favorite movie is Forest Gump, so this one is for my Dad! He thinks its hilarious that Forest is responsible for all the historical events in the movie. Great Movie!
I love bees! I don’t know why, I always have. Sometimes I will find one trapped near the screen window, I will convince the bee to crawl on my finger or a piece of paper and set him free out the window. I have never been stung, and I am not afraid! Someday I would like to try my hand at bee keeping. I am pretty sure other people in the building I live in would appreciate me waiting until I have my own house. 🙂 Maybe I could just be like the chick from “Pushing Daisies” she had a crazy set up for her bee’s on the roof of her apartment. That was a good tv show, too bad it was cancelled!
I used to work late nights at a CVS in Aiken, South Carolina. One night I looked up from the register and there was a man just standing waiting to get rung up. He had one singular roll of toilet paper in his hand and his wee wee was just pulled out of his zipper. I just rang him up and ignored him and his man parts. I will always wonder why, did he lose a bet. Maybe he had OCD and giving it the shake just wasn’t going to cut it. Or I was possibly just getting punked…all I know is he didn’t get any reaction out of me at all that night. I guess this is my delayed reaction. This is my nod to that dude…whatever his deal was. 🙂
And now some Wizard of Oz… this blog doesn’t have to make any sense at all…clearly!
Everyone in Kentucky is so excited for the Prince concerts! I heard they started the tour in Louisville because its the drummers hometown. I guess so many people wanted to go to the show they are having four concerts. I went to Louisville in October for a week & a half. Before the trip I wanted to know what Louisville was known for. Apparently every one has a story of someone they know who dated Tom Cruise at some point(Tom Cruise is from Louisville), Slugger bats, Fried Chicken, & Hunter S Thompson. I had to do a Fear and Loathing illustration even though it seems once removed from my original Kentucky concept. I loved Louisville its a very cool city! I hope everyone who gets to see Prince has an awesome time!
Lately I have been getting lots of Prince ideas from coworkers, Thats where Rainbow Brite Prince was conceptualized . Rainbow Brite had to happen! Its not often I can go full on rainbow crazy when I do an illustration !
Here are a few photos from my Louisville trip! The First Photo is from 21-C-Museum-Hotel which I loved visiting, the next photo is a view from Falls of the Ohio State Park, And the Third is from Spinellis pizzeria, awesome pizza by the way! Its not everyday you get to sit in a sick car and shove your face with pizza!
I really liked the way my Norman Rockwell Prince came out on Sunday, so I wanted to do another famous work of art today. So today I did my version of Klimt’s “The Kiss”. Its fun studying the artwork while working on a piece there are a lot of details you miss and do not appreciate. I love the hands in this painting…thats what captures the love for me!
So here is my version with Prince & also Klimts!
also yesterday I did a Harry Potter Quidditch Prince.
I hope you all enjoy! 🙂
I finally setup a dedicated website for the Prince project, it can be viewed www.365daysofprince.com. The website is still at a pretty rinky dink stage, but I will mess with the new website later this week and get it looking in top shape. I will be forming phase two of 365 days of Prince (the secret phase to be revealed at a later date) for the next couple of months!
Hi Everyone! So Yesterday my friend Shannon requested a Nutcracker version of Prince. Shannon and I went to catholic all girl school together back in the day woooo! So of course I did a nutcracker version of Prince for her! I hope you all like it, also if anyone else has any requests please feel free to drop me a line! I usually do most requests, unless you want me to draw Prince as a cannibal or something. Also Today is my friend Josh’s birthday! Happy Birthday Josh!!! Josh and I were having a couple of drinks one night and Josh blurted out “You should draw Prince every day for a year!” I am pretty sure I responded “Thats crazy, no way!” Anyways here I am on day Two Hundred and Ninety One….thanks Josh, I think. Ha ha ha
Here is a photo from high school. I am in the second row with two long braids (I have no idea why my pockets are turned out). Shannon is the pretty blonde in the back row with her shades on! Hi Shannon!
Here is a video of Josh that I have been holding onto for future embarrassment purposes, now seems like a good time to cash it in! Josh was trying to do a submission tape for Foxes Utopia! Happy Birthday Josh!!! Utopia you missed out!!!
Its been nice to have a couple days off, I’m back to work on Monday!!! I have been using the time to organize my living space. When you live in a loft all you ever do is move things from one space to another. It just never looks organized! I’m a virgo, thats simply not going to work. Virgo’s are born to clean and put things away…little piles of things with no home are our kryptonite! We purchased some anti mess devices, and we will put them together today! So excited! Never been so excited to put panties into cubes until today! 🙂
