Puppy training

Just some sketches. Something softer and more idyllic than my take on the Etruscan statue in the last post. I’m imagining Lupa Capitolina teaching the boys how to become wolves.

Velkommen!

Welcome to viewers from Norway—please make yourself at home!

Am I missing something? #MerMay means we’re supposed to post drawings of Ethel Merman this month, right? #Youllbeswell #Youllbegreat

Vampire wearing bat slippers

mummy_03Had I shown you this before? I think I painted this picture a few years before I started blogging, so maybe not. It’s Baby Mummy meeting Drac—just as he’s getting ready for bed—in Carolyn Crimi‘s* wonderful story, Where’s My Mummy?

Today is National Garlic Day. Vampires are supposed to hate garlic, so why not post a picture of a vampire on my blog? Enjoy the day, everybody!

 

 

*rhymes with ‘shimmy’.

Sixty-Six Books

I just finished a poster for an upcoming event at my church—66 Books In 2 Hours. Pastor Greg will be cramming the entirety of Holy Writ into a frothy evening of dinner and a floor show.

If you are anywhere near Second Presbyterian Church in Oil City, Pa on Saturday, October 22nd, 5:30 – 8:30, I hope to see you there.

Here’s the rough sketch and final painting:

Ethelred the Unready

For no reason whatsoever, here is a cartoon I drew ‘way back in 1980. I was a lot funnier then.

A Servant to Two Masters

A Servant to Two Masters opens at the O’Reilly Theater in Pittsburgh, PA this Thursday. It’s an old commedia dell’arte-style farce updated to modern-day Venice. “Our hilarious hero, Truffaldino, will stop at nothing to stuff his face, even if it means working for two bosses at the same time. Laughs pile on top of laughs as he tries to keep both masters happy, hook up with the delectable Smeraldina, and have his fill of fettuccini.”

To celebrate, here is the art I was commissioned to create for the Pittsburgh Public Theater’s promotional materials. The design is by my brilliant pal, Paul Schifino. We’re looking at the first rough ideas through tight sketches to final art.
