RIP Stanley Rosenthal

One of my old college drawing and printmaking instructors from Wayne State University, Stanley Rosenthal, passed away last week. He was a warm, funny, generous guy as I recall, and I have fond memories of the classes I took with him. When I returned to school this fall, he was the first person I encountered, standing outside the WSU art building of course, and we talked briefly. My wife reminded me of this cartoon I drew several years ago, a true-life anecdote from he late '80s.

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!
