"I'm not all there myself"

A friend is helping  Alternatives For Girls produce a short theatrical version of "Alice in Wonderland," and asked if I'd help out with some backdrops. This is them. I came up with a simple way to make the cat appear, too: three cardboard screens, one with leaves, which slides out to reveal one with a smile added, which slides to reveal a third with the full cat. Know why Cheshire cats smile? Because Cheshire is a dairy producing district - lots of milk and cream to keep kitties happy!



UPDATE: Here's a photo of the Cheshire Cat on stage with Alice!

Pounce on this!

So glad to finally be able to share this illustration, the cover art for the upcoming book “The Deeds of Pounce” by my pal Benjamin Wachs — a tale of goblins adventuring through San Francisco! Pick up your copy via the publisher, Beating Windward Press.

Film history humor

Another swipe at the administration via Photoshop collage. I admit this was inspired at first by Karen Pence's hairdo, but the rest fell into place, as things often do with parody pieces like this. It helps if you know the poster to the 1986 Jonathan Demme movie first, of course.

Art history humor...

I channeled my inner John Heartfield, and hijacked Domenico Ghirlandaio's famous painting, to come up with this bit of obscure political commentary...

Speaking of art history, here's an illustration I did for the in-house volunteer docent scheduling web page at the Detroit Institute of Arts. When in Detroit, be sure to visit the Detroit Industry murals by Diego Rivera. If you're really lucky, I'll be there to tell you all about them!
