Silly Anachronism

this image is phony. those things didn't exist at the same time as dinosaurs. rainbows only came about after prehistoric times.

Remember That Time I Was Getting Sued?

in May i posted about how the term Power Hour is in jeopardy. i have some info on how the trademark case is going.

i successfully filed an opposition to Steve Roose in May. here's an update from my lawyer on what's going on now:

We are now entering the discovery phase of the opposition, and have held the initial discovery conference. At our request, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board participated in this conference through one of their interlocutory attorneys. After the conference, the interlocutory attorney issued an order which said in part, “The Board noted that applicant . . . will need to establish that he was the first to use the claimed mark and has been policing it. . . . The Board explained to applicant that this is a challenging burden on the facts of this case.”

you can read about the discovery conference on the USPTO website.

Cat Adolescent Also Seems Difficult

cat boy doesn't know what a rough life he's got ahead of him. sure it's cute when you're just a little cat boy but cat man starts getting weird looks from the adult world. cat young professional is going to have a hard time landing a job. cat middle aged dude just doesn't get the right type of attention from ladies at bars. cat senior citizen is a likely candidate for a mental hospital.

And I Thought My Posts Were Difficult to Follow Sometimes

these guys are characters from the web comic Jerk City. it is absolute nonsense and insanity. i cannot describe it clearly. you'll have to see for yourself. NSFW. also, outrageous favicon.

I Do Wear a Beret Every Time I Make Art

no, this is not a self portrait. i'm not secretly cheer bear. though i see how you could have come to that conclusion. abe lincoln with a broadsword fighting a unicorn is definitely the type of subject i might be painting at any moment. and who else would be stupid enough to give away paintings except for a pink care bear that has a friggin' rainbow on her stomach...excuse me, tummy.

They're Not Tricks. They're Illusions.

this is Gob Bluth from the TV series "Arrested Development" doing his signature chicken dance. he also has a signature segway that he rides all the time but he couldn't do the dance and ride the segway at the same time so i'll leave that for the rhinos.

I Guess There's Nothing Left to Paint

Two Middle Fingers Would Now Be More Well Received!

this guy completely ruined stepping off of a plane holding up two peace signs. this is crap! what a sweet power move. and now no one can ever do it again.

A Pounding Is a Pounding Whether It Comes from a Man in Purple or Not

i was just thinking how this team should be purple since the fleur-de-lis is an iris and they're usually represented as purple. then i thought how funny it would be to see a purple football team. then i realized there was one. haha go vikings!

First Place out of One!

this past friday i half jokingly created a "contest" to see if someone could match the fake cityscape i painted to a real one. well someone actually entered! and of course he won. check out the picture he found of Charlotte, NC:

to match this:

impressively close, actually. it even has a slanty building on the right. so congrats to dave! he's totally getting a free painting ASAP.

You Should See His Tramp Stamp

he got it when he was 18 and is now really regretting his decision. no tattoo will ever go well with a tuxedo.

They Turn Red During Construction Season

looks like they're going to build a little robot together...while flying through space. robot love can travel through a vacuum.

I Figured Orange Sky Was a Better Idea Than Orange Water

the request was to paint a cityscape for a room that has a lot of brown, denim blue, and orange. so i didn't base this on any specific place. i challenge anyone to find a picture of an actual city that matches the skyline i painted here because i feel like that might be possible. the prize is a piece of artwork AT NO CHARGE!!!

Provocative! Challenging! Stimulating! Revolutionary!

Also, Fairy Ghost

man i love halloween. when else can a bird hang out with an astronaut? what would be even cooler is if they combined the costumes to make a bird astronaut. that's how you end up with some costume contest winners. like vampire superman, or devil cop, or zombie pirate, or sexy nurse frog.

My Art Is Full of Symbols

This Is Only a Speculation of What Happens Behind Closed Igloos

penguins are fond of beer but have never been seen drinking them in public. due to the fact that they are always dressed up, penguins only allow themselves to be photographed drinking martinis. as you can see by the absurdity of my representation here, no one in a tuxedo should be seen enjoying a low class beverage.

They Found a Common Ground with the Cuff Links

finally, men who like blue suits can come together with men who like black suits.

It's a Tricky One

Cowabunga! Music from the 80's...Psych! I Just Wrote It.

here's another song i just finished for work. it's not actually going to be used in a video game. it went into one of our promo videos that is 8-bit/Game Boy themed. i also created the graphics for the video (screen shot below).

I Could Do No Research on What I Was Painting Here

aaah cable. a luxury with which i am not blessed. maybe if you people paid for your paintings i'd be able to afford it. haha just kidding. but really, give me all your money.

No Silicon Here

i'm back from seattle!

is this a comment on our culture's obsession with women being thin? i'm just glad skeletons have no boobs so i got to represent for the flat chested women. also, insert some boner joke.
