There's a place for art

Packers vs. Vikings

Packers vs. Vikings

Colored pencil on bristol board.

Done exclusively with colored pencil because I don’t have markers in several of the colors I wanted to use.

Killer Rabbit

Killer Rabbit

Colored pencil on white copy paper.

Done a few years ago, and based on the most memorable four-legged creature from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Happy Halloween!

Not Dead Duck

Not Dead Duck

Pencil on white copy paper.

Inspired by the “bring out yer dead!” scene from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”.

Brian and the Sheep

Brian and the Sheep

Brian: “How can you call yourselves fighting mongooses when you all think and act alike, just like a flock of sheep? You are all individual animals, and you should start acting that way!”

Drunk ewe: “I’ve probably had twice the legal alcohol limit for a human, let alone a sheep, but one more little Irish car bomb couldn’t hurt.”

Acrylic on canvas.

Inspired by the “we’re all individuals” scene in “The Life of Brian.”

Permanently Funny

Permanently Funny - Four Cleeses

Pop art-styled depiction of John Cleese in four roles (clockwise from top left: Basil Fawlty, the Black Knight, the Centurion from “The Life of Brian”, Archie Leach from “A Fish Called Wanda”). Ultramarine, violet, crimson red, and grass green colored pencils on white copy paper.

For something different, I made linoleum carvings of each character, placed them underneath the paper, and used the colored pencils to make rubbings.
