Stolen Flower

Stolen Flower

This is my first full fledged painting.  It is of a still-life utilizing a limited pallet.  Unfortunately someone liked it so much they stole it out of the classroom.  Fortunately I had a poor photo of the painting that I attempted here to stretch and light correct to resemble the original as much as possible.  Please contact me if you know anyone with this original, I would very much like to have it back, it was to be a gift to a family member.

Talk Radio Comic

I often times listen to talk radio while I work on my various graphic projects.  One of my favorite shows is the ‘Bill Handel’ show.  Rich Marotta is a superiorly entertaining and talented voice on the show.  There is a lot to love about this man and his amazing career, but at times the listeners and others on the show don’t show very much respect for his well educated opinion.  

This cartoon pretty much an inside joke to those who listened to the show during the election era of 2008.  Check out Rich on the Bill Handel Show on KFI.
