Thought I Was a Bad Painter for a Second

notes look weird when they're isolated and have their stem down. but i swear this is what they look like.

Basically a Silent Film

the request was for Ryan Gosling in Drive. this painting is more talkative than the character in the movie.

this art makes vegetarianism seem inhumane

Pandas, Pong and Probably Wrong

i bet you can guess why i missed posting yesterday. yep, it was a holiday and i was distracted by cookouts and friends. here's two to make up for it!

what's black and white and drunk all over?

this is called a microphone. based on my knowledge of the English language, it is a tiny device for making calls.

Painting Poetry

tyrannosaurus rex and megaman x. cool, that rhymed! ok from now on everyone should only request subjects that rhyme. or maybe i'll just make sure the captions rhyme. all the time. it wouldn't be a crime. in fact, it'd be sublime. orange. crap, i blew it.

Green, Multi-Leaved Theme

funny that this painting happened to come after a shamrock. i wonder if there are lucky, eight leaf cannabis plants.

Majestic, Stately, Noble and Butt-Sniffing

here's ian's dog. well, about 50% of ian's dog. ian wanted me to paint it's bust. now i want to see a big, regal, marble sculpture of a dog bust. and the dog's face must communicate the emotion, "i just drank out of the toilet."

Pop Art Couple

i painted ian. about two years later, ian decided his girlfriend should be painted, too. let's see the happy couple together! [below] ian actually decided his two dogs also should be painted. they're coming up next. but i figured i should do the human first lest she be offended.

Two Weddings Means Two Paintings Today

sorry i missed posting yesterday. i had a marriage marathon weekend where i traveled to two different states for two weddings in two days. multiple open bars distracted me from my blog.

i started this one off by painting the dreams first. then i put the catcher in there catching them.

this is a character from a video game. i'm still filling requests from gamers who requested after i was featured on Kotaku almost a year ago. there needs to be more days per day so i can get these paintings finished faster.

Don't Drink and Save the Planet

not piloting a zord any time soon.

My Art Is More Valuable Under the Influence

i'm playing a show at DEFCON this year. (i played last year, too!) it's run by these guys called Vegas 2.0. in addition to hearing my awesome tunes, they're going to auction off this painting and the heartbleed logo i posted yesterday to raise money for the EFF. it's a brilliant plan, really. get everyone drunk with my Power Hour and then then have them pull out their wallets.

Tomorrow's Painting Will Be "Ali's Recent Tinder Date" Logo

this represents a security bug so bad, it warranted its own name and logo. i'm going to start branding all my mistakes, too.

I Don't Get Out Much

this is a brown cat and a fennec fox. i didn't know they existed until this painting. turns out, a fennec fox is a nocturnal animal from the sahara. and, no joke, i had a bunch of brown left on my palate so i decided to make the cat brown but first i had to google for brown cats to make sure they existed.

This Logo Is Hitting on You

this is for the guy that runs the logo is pretty great because it's got the title's initials and also looks like a winky face. a thing that looks like two things is the visual equivalent of a pun.

I'm Just Glad to Be Finished with It

Worst Game of TriBond Ever

what do these three things have in common? i don't know either. i guess what they have in common is that they've all been in a painting together.

Wafflebot Has Me Waffling Over the Right Decision

this is from a movie i didn't watch. usually i feel bad about painting things before familiarizing myself with the subject but i don't know what's worse for an artist: not doing thorough research for her work or having seen A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.

Using My Powers for Good

Executive Action

if you had one of these on your desk in the '80s, you knew you'd made it. now it's cool to, like, not have a desk and wear pajamas to work or something, i dunno. what does Mark Zuckerberg do?

Today You Just Download the Adapter App

this is an adapter that lets you send faxes with a pager. or wait, i think this is what a Blockbuster membership card looks like. er... it's a special Zima bottle opener. wait, it's definitely a VHS to Beta adapter.

Could Maybe Call This Japanese Art

this is from ゼルダの伝説 ムジュラの仮面. also known as The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. definitely cooler untranslated.

The Final Step Is Even Worse

he looks happy but little does he know i'm about to impale him, burn him at the stake and then squish him in the stocks... made of chocolate and graham cracker.
