I love to draw mashups, especially involving Popeye. This isn't really a mashup, but more of a crossover. These are 2 of the 3 in this little miniseries. I tried my hand at computer coloring. The scans of the original art aren't great.

I've been a huge fan of Mel Brooks for as long as I can remember. I've seen all of his movies and a lot of his appearances. This is the 2nd installment of my Mel Brooks section of my "Heroes" series. This is a 9"x12" graphite drawing.

This past weekend was the Motor City Comic Con Fall show (it's usually only in May), and I decided at the last minute I was going to go. I wanted to go because Alice Cooper was there and I am a fan. I did a couple drawings for him, one of him and his wife, and the one seen here. I didn't get a pic of the charcoal drawing of him and his wife. I also didn't get a photo with him because it cost more money than I had for a photo with him. I did get to chat with him and that was great. AND...he LOVED the Popeye drawing! He LOL'd out loud, as did his associate, and kept complimenting it!

Since Eddie Van Halen's death October 2020, I've taken it harder than expected. I've been drawing and painting artwork of Van Halen (Sammy Hagar era) ever since, like I did in middle school when I started listening to music, and through high school until Sammy Hagar was fired.
This is the latest oil painting, based on an image from a free concert the band played in Texas around 1992.
This painting is up for sale. Contact me if interested.

This is only the 2nd time I've been hired to do a painting at a wedding. This was about 3 hours' work. Oil on canvas, 16"x20". I took it home to finish it by adding faces (too far away to see and they were only standing there for 15 minutes! Cut me some slack).

I started on a new drawing of my favorite group o' villains: the Sinister Six!
I just made a painting live at a wedding. This is only the 2nd time I've done it. It's tough because although I get there early to paint the background and surroundings, I don't know where exactly the bride and groom will be until they're both at the altar reciting vows. That might take 15 minutes at the most! They're only up there for a few minutes so I have to rush! I take a couple photos to look at, but outdoor weddings are rough because of various lighting. This one was no different, as the sun was lighting them up from BEHIND them, so my camera basically picked up silhouettes.
Anyway, this is what I ended up with. I brought it home to finish it. I spent a total of 3 1/2 hours on it, with 15 of those minutes on the figures. 16"x20" oil painting.

I've been working on this drawing all Summer (2 months, really, of 2022), and I finally finished. This photo is blurry, but you get the gist. It's graphite on paper (#2 mechanical pencil), roughly 24"x18". This is part of my Popeye series, which is part of my "My Heroes" series. It's ever-growing.

I've done a lot of artwork inspired by my favorite band and favorite singer/musician VAN HALEN and SAMMY HAGAR. After Eddie Van Halen's death, I was (I don't want to say inspired) to make art to celebrate the music and band VAN HALEN, specifically the Sammy Hagar lineup that I first got into and was inspired by. Below are examples of those pieces.
I'm feeling that itch again, but more towards Sammy related, but I don't know if I want to do VH era, Montrose, solo or current (with "The Circle"). Below are samples of work I've done of Sammy and for Sammy. I'll be seeing him in concert again this Summer, so I might do something for him (it's been 10 years, why not?).
