Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Friday, July 14, 2006


I guess all that's missing is the little "Not Me" ghost from Family Circus. Actually It's more like a Three Stooges bit. BWHahahahahahahaha... ahem.

This is my picture for Illustration Friday, the theme is sacrifice. "Sacrifice" was drawn on a scrap of paper with my Faber-Castle 3-H pencil and then inked over with my Gel-Roller.

Bah! I hate the way the hands look in this illustration. Other than that I'm pretty happy with it. Oh well, that's why I call it bad art.

Have you ever been the guy at the end of the line? Do you want to leave me some love?


  • How come visiting your blog is like watching an episode of The Simpsons? I can't leave in a bad mood after looking at either. That calls for some...

  • :D :D I agree with andrea! Anyway, being sacrificed is the norm here in the corporate world....sigh...

  • LOL "All that's missing is the 'not me' guy from from Family Circus."! I'm still waiting for Bush to make good on the comment that whoever leaked Plame would be fired. ...Still waiting...

  • This is so funny. Glad I'm not an American right now. I guess you guys have been making a lot of sacrifices lately.

  • I enjoy your caricatures. You're not a Democrat, are you? :-)

    By Blogger mbc, at 11:28  

  • Your illo is very expressive!

    Another way of saying your point, could be, that every man washes his dirt of his hands - so the water gets more and more dirty!

    You have a very good pointe - I send lots of love from Denmark to you!

  • LOVE the illio. Too true!

    By Anonymous Marie, at 20:44  

  • Superb and funny. I sent your last Bush cartoon (sticky) to my boyfriend who loves good political humor and he said the only problem with it was that it was so true it wasn't funny, it was depressing. I'm going to send him this one too. He assumed they were published syndicated cartoons. Do you publish other than here? You're very, very good, you know.

  • You've captured their faces quite well. And the hands LOOK like hands, which is better than I'm usually able to do. Hands are hard.
