This is a colorized version of an editorial cartoon Allen Forkum and I created on...wait for it...October 8, 2001.
Perseverance and justice prevails; America exterminates bin Laden.
This is Pulitzer Prize-winning Michael Ramirez's take on bin Laden's extermination. Allen and I just covered this idea by ten years.
Garandfan passed this gem along via the comment thread from the latest Quiptoon. It seems to be making the rounds and I thought I'd have some fun with it.
A hat tip t'ye, kind sir.
Each Khaalugan morn,
Urging old ones out of bed
The Beginner speaks.
This is my entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme, "Beginner"; kind of a dystopian riff that twists the meaning of the word.
A man can dream, can't he? If I ever get a graphic novel cover commission the unicorns will rejoice, the pond nymphs will feast on jelly bean wine and river trolls will frolic to the ethereal sounds of manatee songs.
I'm enjoying participating on Illustration Friday for the chance to take unconventional approaches to what seems to be pretty ordinary themes.
This is how one of my illustrations would look on an inner city underpass.
There's seems to be an ardent fringe element of the Christian persuasion who are confident the world as we know will be expunged by the Creator Of All Things this Saturday.
May 22 is National Chagrin Day.
There's that one weird guy,
Unflappable and patient,
That drives us BATSHIT.
This toon appears in the June issue of Allen Forkum's paper, Automotive Report. It goes along with a humor column, by Buster Mcnutt, that bemoans the passing of the rear wheel drive era.
Fresh out of high school, I seriously was digging this album in 1982.
I saw the previews for the new summer release, "Captain America: The First Avenger" and was totally blown away by the combination of 21st science of biomechanics and 1940's fight against Nazism.
Well, here's my rendition Captain America, inspired by what I should think is going to be a summer blockbuster.
This is a commissioned oil painting I did last summer and I thought it fit this week's theme over at Illustration Friday quite nicely.
A hearty hat-tip to Kendal for contributing this evocative quote and spiffy visual.
Have a thankful Memorial Day, y'all.
O what dreams may come
Untethered and unbidden
Asleep yet alive.
Thought it might be fun to see some of y'all's haikus based on my entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme, "ASLEEP".
