March is winding down.. But, MODOK is going out with A ROAR!..
Because MODOK is into ordering around all the AIM Beekeepers. He figured he'd take it one step further and have the staff at AIM HQ build him a monument... Maybe like a sphinx or some other monolithic structure that would display his greatness for ages to come... So MODOK gathered his henchmen, told them that they where going on a weekend team building retreat. Then geared up in his royal headgear and oversaw the construction. THUS he BECAME PHARAOH-DOK!. In an interesting side note...his visor says "Kill" in heiroglyphs and I based a lot of the mask design on Tutenkhamen. Furthermore he also, had some Canopic jars specially made to house the remains of any hero's that dared oppose him.
This is the last day of MARCH MODOK MADNESS! I invite you all to come and check out the BLOG!, We've had some really great art for 2011.
March is winding down, and I've got a boatload of things to wrap up. I only have a few more MODOKS for this year, and then, I'll have to save the rest for 2012. For now here is a Colorful and speedy version of a Killer Mental Organism... I figured I'd give him some green manga type hair when I painted the image. I don't remember why I did it this way But, I just had fun with it.
I hope you dig him..
I'm still trying to work in the random MODOK post here and there during this month... I surprisingly had the foresight to prep some images towards the beginning of March and I've been feeding them to the blog when I don't have time to work up anything new...
This March has actually spread me a little thin believe it or not. But, hopeful I'll complete all that I've set out for myself to do.. Then I'll get back to my more personal stuff. ALSO, For an alternative version of this MODOK you can stop in over at MARCHMODOKMADNESS!.
Thanks again for stopping by the beers and bears,
I hope you dig...
It was a peaceful land....Full of peaceful folk.
They had some kegs of green beer, some whiskey, and even a live band of pipers to come and make merry. It was a cool evening on March 17th....
It was a cool evening on March 17th when NORDOK sailed silently towards the shore. He then savagely sacked the party and killed many foes.. He drank all the green beer, and the whiskey, and slept till the following day when he was ready to sail to another site of conquest...
Hope you dig...
Found this drawing of Rachmaninoff today on the computer from some weeks back. The proper spelling of his name will be forever a mystery to me..is it Sergei or Sergey, and aren't they the same thing.. I do however prefer to spell his last name with the two F's.
Regardless of all that, I wanted to try and loosen up a bit so I played some of his music and put a bit of finish on the sketch. I might come back to it and do a more finished Illo in the future...
For the moment though I am somber, so much to process in the past several days...I think I'll drink my tea... try to clear my head, and listen to perhaps my favorite bit of Rachmaninoff's work:
The Prelude in C sharp Minor Opus 3 No. 2
Moody Music...for a relatively Moody evening..
Hope you dig the work...I'll post more soon...
Here's a sketch from some weeks back...She was a lawyer doing a discussion on the business of being an artist and dealing with taxes..
Just wanted to post, and wrap up my day... Try and bounce back into things for tomorrow..
Hope you dig.
If you were to look at me for the first time...you'd probably say to yourself.
"He eats in a lot of diners; and believe me you wouldn't be wrong... I tend to enjoy a good diner meal, but I'm also particularly keen on restaurants with PLACEMATS...LOVE THEM! I tend to be a pretty clean eater so they usually make it through the meal unscathed... But, man...its just fun to jot on them before the food shows up... ON this one I drew a few things from off the table we were eating at, and then I took the remainder back to my desk where I sketched some items I had laying about....
Hope you dig
It just started as a pen scribble I didn't think to make him albino until i started the quick paints on it... I liked the idea alot...and VOILA!

I did some art recently for the super talented Elliot Cowan, based on his Boxhead and Roundhead animated shorts... I'm wrapping up the image at present... It's been a great pleasure to know Elliot for the past four years in person, and the additional three years before that when we met on the Drawingboard art forums... His drawings are Hilarious, and always vibrantly (sometimes Violently) energetic.. I'll check with him to see if I can link to the finished work in the future..
UPDATE! See the work HERE, and enter to win fantastic prizes...
Hope you dig..

I received a delicious loaf of home baked bread last weekend. It had some wheat flour in it and very tasty Parmesan cheese throughout.. It was wonderful, So since she wouldn't accept my money for the loaf I drew her this little clip image of a flying loaf of bread... She digs it... so, I'll post it here for you to see..
P.S. Here's a version with text on it...
