Sparkly Devil

A friend and colleague from my alt-weekly newspaper days, Sarah "Sparkly Devil" Klein, died last weekend in a car crash, and her death has had me in a melancholy and contemplative mood all week. Others who were closer to her can eulogize her better than me, but I will say that some of the funnest illustrations I did for the paper accompanied her stories. She was also instrumental in getting the Detroit chapter of Dr. Sketchy off the ground, modeling for our first session and putting me in touch with other burlesque performers, and I'm grateful for that. Here are a few illustrations I did for her stories and columns (on suburbans Satan worshippers, organ thieves, born-again Christians bikers, and wolf whistlers), and here's a link to that first Dr. Sketchy session, with some really nice photos by Chris Schneider.

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.

Some photos

All shot with my aging iPhone. The DSLR is not quite as handy.

Somewhere in Time

...on page 58, actually, of the August 29, 2016 issue of Time magazine. That's where there's a small photo of the Little Library I painted, the one in front of the Hatch Art gallery! So that's a first.
