Halloween Treat

Here's another B.G. I fished out of the Filmation dumpster back in the 70's. This is from the Sabrina and The Groovie Ghoulies show. The Grovie Ghoulies were a take off on the popular Munsters show which was live action. I'm still amazed at how much great art was just tossed out in those days and I'm glad I was there to save a few pieces.

Journey Back To Oz

This is a B.G. I pulled out of the Filmation dumpster back in the 70's after production ended on the 'Journey Back To Oz' film. It was common practice to dump all the art work from a show after the show was in the can, so a few of us would just jump in and do a little "dumpster diving" to see what we could take home for souveniers. The back grounds were done in the style of Eyvind Earle who was the stylist for Disney on 'Sleeping Beauty'. If you aren't familiar with his work I suggest you do a search and take a look. He was an amazing designer and painter and it's well worth your time.

The Waiter

Here's another waiter I decided to paint. There's something about a professional waiter that I find fascinating. Maybe because they remind me of the nuns in catholic school. The uniform (?), stern expression (?) deliberate work ethic (?). I'm not sure but they do make an interesting subject to paint. SOLD

Granny runs over Obama Care

I don't usually get political here but this one's drivin' me crazy, besides it gives me an excuse to draw a cartoon, not that I need an excuse. So what's up with this government health care take over? Who needs it? 80% of Americans are happy with the insurance they have. How about just fixing Medicare and Medicaid so they will cover the 15% or 20% of they people who don't have insurance? How about fixing Social Security so that our kids can have something for retirement instead of debt?
The government can't take care of the programs they started but they want to start another one. No wonder nobody has any faith in politicians who get into office, screw around and in a few years retire with $ millions.
I don't know how some of these people sleep at night.
Watch this from the halls of Congress.
