D.o.D. and Homeland Security join forces

U.S. military teaches 'protesters' are 'low-level terrorists' Become 'dangerous citizen' by 'repeating the very phrases Founding Fathers used'
From the Saturday, June 20, 2009 post titled:
Orwell would have shook his head and said: I told you so!
By Bob Unruh © 2009 WorldNetDaily
So far everyone who has seen this toon asks. "Why Lincoln?".
Jefferson and Franklin and many others wrote these priceless documents. Lincoln, for all intents and purposes, stood alone in his attempt to defend and maintain their place as guides for our government, as well as maintain the nation as a whole, as the Founding Fathers intended.
Seems a shame to let certain departments in the very same government, screw with it!

Karma can bite back

The cool thing about drawing cartoons, or pictures in general, is that you can create a universe of your own where things go the way you think they should.

Epidemic hits household!!!

It is with regret that I must notify the followers of this blog that the guy who writes this thing has been sidelined with a severe case of "The Lazys"
Different so called cures have been attempted but none have worked. Coffee therapy, energy drinks, rabid squirrels, many, many remedies have been tried but to no avail. It is with hope that it will soon pass and that the many multitudes of fan will be there to welcome him back.
Thank you,

My last project with my Dad

The year before his death my Dad built Breanna a toy box. When it was finished he asked that I paint a Disney theme but that each side should be a different subject. The top was 101 Dalmatians, the back was Bambi, the left side Snow White, the right Lady and the Tramp and the front Cinderella. Below is a picture of the front. I was hoping to get pictures of all sides but unfortunately I never got a chance before we moved to Mississippi. When we get all our stuff out of storage I will blog the remaining pics.
Hope you like it.

Compliments can be painful

The name of this piece is "Woman". It was meant to be complimentary.
One of the viewers took exception and popped me alongside my noggin, due to
the gratuitous nudity.
I explained to her that the face spoke of beauty, the breasts; femininity.
the wings; gracefulness. the tail; her ability to protect herself as well as her young,
the talons her ability to grab life (the limb) and hold on.
Not a bad representation of a woman, if I have to say so myself.

Stupid is my middle name (and you thought it was Michael)

Yesterday was a day of learning for my wife, myself and about human nature in general.

I have an enjoyable habit that, to some, might be considered dangerous and stupid. I like to feed the squirrels that hangout by my kitchen window. One little guy we have come to call Bob, likes to sit outside the window and scratch the glass until I place a few sunflower seeds on the sill. We have become buddies.
Yesterday Bob got a little too enthused and nipped my finger, drawing blood and causing a trip to the emergency room for a tetanus shot. That was it. Or so I thought.
It seems that the health department has to be notified when something like this happens so they can contact animal control, apprehend the animal and check for rabies.
Do you know how they check for rabies? They remove the little guy's head!! If he has rabies they take preventive measures by giving the bitten idiot a series of shots. If not rabid they send the bitten idiot home with a warning about being more careful as the next time he/she may not be so lucky. No mention at all about how you have f----d up the squirrel's day.
When they told us what was to be done Sheri and I just looked at each other and decided that Bob should not have to sacrifice all because of my stupidity. Besides, when I last saw Bob he had removed his name tag, thus making it too difficult to identify him as the true culprit.
With a look of utter astonishment, the doctor and the guy from the health department began preparing the order for the vaccine.
In an hour the shots began.
Not fun.
One shot in the left arm, 5 shots in the upper thighs. 3 in the left, 2 in the right.
I have to go to the Health Department 4 more times, once a week for 4 weeks for a follow up shot of the vaccine.
That's not so bad, but the shots in the legs were with something Sheri said had the consistency of jello or really thick syrup. Yummy.
I still have no regrets, although, I am hobbling around like I got hit in the legs with a baseball bat. Besides, the most painful part hasn't happened yet. According to the hospital the bill will be somewhere around 400 dollars. Ouch!
Life's little lessons can be quite painful!

Well, I better go give Bob his sunflower seeds...yeah, yeah, I know...I'm an idiot!


PS You're damned right its gonna find its way into the strip!!

A Pause that enlightens even more than the one that enlightened yesterday!!

This was a study I did for a picture I was working on.
As I said before, my two favorite subjects to draw are animals and the female form.
The next post will show the result of such a liking!

A pause to enlighten (showoff)

Gotten a few emails asking if I've done other work besides cartoons so I thought I'd dig out a few other things I've done and post them.

This is a drawing exercise I did in 2001.
Love animals and women so I draw a lot of both.
Will post more. Hope you like em.
