The Brown Bear Thinks You're Better Off Just Not Having a Mouth

after i painted this one, the requester asked me to repaint the panda's face to give him a smile. i did so because i always want to please my "customers". but i'm posting a picture of the original version because her calling attention to the panda's face made me realize i liked it. he's quite humorous. even in the photo he looks funny. but some people like to sacrifice humor for likability. i am not one of those people.

Didn't I See That Happen in Alice in Wonderland?

sunflowers are the bullies of the flower world. they're so much bigger and more imposing. they can boss around the other flowers and get whatever they want.

Now They Have to Stay Together for the Painting

instead of just painting this one, i emailed omar to make sure omar and gabriel were still omar and gabriel. that was the case. so they got their painting. of course i didn't say "hey, just checking to see if your relationship failed in the last year". but this one is way more specific than the standard "two animals in love" request so i definitely needed to confirm the painting would still be wanted. i should have asked this girl if she planed on changing her email address before i painted hers.

Pop Art Is Not His Natural Habitat

"Harley Davidson Sissy" Is a Legit Search Query

Just Because They Didn't Make It Doesn't Mean You Won't Like Them

i've had a series of bad luck occurrences with my songwriting lately so i figured compile them into on place for the world to see.

a while ago, Regis and Kelly hosted a contest to write their new theme song. they ended up canceling the contest but only after i composed the song. then just recently the exact same thing happened with another contest to write the song that the Pittsburgh Pirates play after every home game win. i also just recently wrote a song for a pop musician in London. he ended up leaving the manager that had me write the song so he never got to record it. boo too all of these. the failed songs are below for your listening pleasure.

Too Much For You

I Also Painted It as a Mirror Reflection But That's Harder to Tell

ha! i painted this one completely upside down! and there's nothing the requester can do about it. from now on, i'm painting every pet portrait like this.

yep, that's the best april fools' thing i could come up with.
