Just a note: usually due to overall laziness on my part, I don't have any sort of background on a bulk of my work. Besides, I can't draw people and buildings in proper perspective if my life depended on it.

Prints

Just a small offering of my work that I, personally, think is good enough for sale as a print. I'll gladly take payment in points (for tax reasons).

Wishlist

Just a sample of art that I wouldn't mind having up o the walls of my living quarters.

My IMMEDIATE Goal is to commission a PROFESSIONAL (or at least some crackerjack) artist who'd work for Points to assist in bringing my dream concept, the St. Patty's Girls Project, into reality. But in order to do this, I would need to take up a collection to get the project off the ground. ANY amount would be greatly appreciated, but I ask that you PLEASE help in any way that you can.

I guess that the last couple attempts to take up a collection were a total failure were because I was at a loss as to how to SELL it.

You must be logged in to donate.
Well, folks, I just returned from my cousin Rebecca's wedding at Dearborn, MI's Greenfield Village...and I have to be honest that as a whole the night is pretty forgettable. Apart from the rain, the hornets (I'm scared to death of those things), and the stench of horse manure, the ceremony itself took place in this rather small venue called the Martha-Mary Chapel, in which aside from a pedestal on the altar with the symbols of the Alpha and the Omega, being born and raised as a Catholic I was gut-wrenched that there was not ONE image of Jesus or The Virgin Mary in the whole damned chapel.....to add insult to injury, apparently the couple insists that instead of traditional hymns they'd have their friends singing Beatles songs and reading something called the "Apache Wedding Blessing". At that point, I knew that my cousin who had come from the same Catholic upbringing as me (she is my mother's sister's daughter) has completely gone "cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs".

    And then came about the ONLY highlight of this shindig from Hell: cocktail hour at the 100-year-old Herschell-Spillman Carousel, where they were serving hors d'oeuvres like crab cakes and something in which I can't remember what they said it was, but it was a portabella mushroom paste in a crispy filo pastry. And so I was one of the first riders on that carousel, and I had a couple of Jack Daniel's mixed with Pepsi-Cola before they called us into dinner at....

  THE EAGLE TAVERN. Aside from some candles in a few rooms, the place is basically pitch-black (didn't help that it was nightfall when we entered the place either)....and I went to get my table assignment tag: At that point, I'm REALLY beginning to hate these themed weddings, because the tables all have names which were titles of, of all things, BEATLES SONGS!!!! And so while everyone else stood up and applauded the entrance of the bride and groom to the strains of John Williams's immortal (and overused) theme from the Star Wars films, I just sat in my chair. At that point, my sister, who was sitting across from me, had the gull to ask "How much have you had to drink today?". 

    Dinner wasn't too bad.....it was a cut of filet mignon in a mushroom sauce with a chicken cutlet on the side (sitting atop a bed of mashed potatoes, actually). And then I just indulged myself in a couple of Miller Lites, one Pepsi-Cola with a shot of The Captain, and four glasses of water.

    For how much this "Fairy Tale" wedding is costing my aunt and uncle, I am hoping that at least her daughter is happy. And for my mother's sake, I haven't complained or anything.....though my sister keeps asking me about how much liquor I've had that evening because she claims that I get crazy when I'm drunk, like the time I fell out of a chair, laughing my ass off at my cousin Bob's graduation party back in 1999. Of course, when we finally got home, my dogs were all in hysterics...mainly Harry, because he thought that he had been abandoned since we'd been gone for several hours. I guess a thunderstorm hit in our area while we were gone.

   I don't really have anything on tap for this morning....except to go to church and start begging God to death that I win the Lottery some time before Christmas so that I could leave this abysmal Hell called My Current Job.....and it's not the money or the job itself that I take issue with (the money is just too good), it's my supervisor and my God-damned coworkers!! Some days, I come home feeling pissed off beyond the capacity to think, rationally or otherwise, and all I want to do is just go to bed and lose myself in my own little fantasy world. All ranting aside....
  • Mood: I Have To Pee
  • Listening to: AKB48
  • Playing: Saint's Row IV
  • Drinking: tap water

I am a thirtysomething unhappily employed contractor who does artwork strictly as a hobby, meaning that I do not do this sort of thing as a profession. Heck, I'm not even good enough to submit any work to anywhere for publication, consideration for any projects, etc.

Also, I am not currently doing commissions since I do not believe in charging people for something that they may end up hating, nor am I taking any requests at present time....mainly because I'm usually too busy with work, and I barely have time to sit down and churn out some material as it is. Thank you for your understanding.

And for those of you who are curious as to what I look for in a member of the opposite sex: I am attracted to those who have a great sence of humour, who aren't easily put off if I accidentally say something stupid....and I like the sock-and-sandal-wearing types who are never embarrassed about that type of fashion sence, even during the summer (Personally, I think bare feet in sandals is both overrated and a personal turn-off)....and they also have to be the type who don't mind if our first date is a couple of lattes at Starbucks since that's MY idea of "starting things out slow".

Other Aspects About Me:

Influences On My Work Include: Toei's Super Sentai Series, J-POP groups like the ever-popular AKB48, some anime I've seen during the early-to-mid 1990s

Phobias: Flying "Stingers" (eg. hornets, wasps),

Pet Peeves: Self-Righteous Types who force their beliefs on others to the point of bullying

Least Favourite Foods: Eggs, All Fruits, Certain Vegetables, Gold-Coloured Cheeses, Glazed Ham, Honey in its pure form, anything marked "Certified Organic".

Worst Vacation I've ever been on: Walt Disney World 1990 (we had not one but TWO blown tires in two days in a row...ONE in Georgia, and ONE in Ohio on the drive back).

Personal Favourite Super Sentai Series: Right now, I'd have to say Samurai Sentai Shinkenger

Personal Favourite Star Trek Episode: Episode 75, Season 3 "The Way To Eden" (The Enterprise picks up a band of 'Space Hippies")

Personal Favourite 7-Eleven Slurpee Flavour: Blue Raspberry/7Up (mix)

Personal Thoughts about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: I'm not a huge fan of the series at all, but I'm kind of holding my breath and waiting for the Japanese company Good Smile to churn out Figma versions of the Equestria Girls since I am NOT at all impressed with Hasbro's dolls.

Personal Thoughts about Dating: I NEVER kiss on a first date, and as for holding hands...if you feel comfortable doing it...

Personal Thoughts about Cinema: Unless something comes along that REALLY looks appealing, I pretty much stopped going to the movies. It's not worth the price of admission plus overpriced concessions.

Personal Thoughts about Fast Food: All Things in Moderation.

Personal Thoughts about Facebook: Never touch the site.

Personal Thoughts about Adam West: Better than George Clooney, that's for sure....as BatMan, anyway ^^; (Granted, I liked Clooney in The Men Who Stare At Goats ).

Personal Thoughts about BubbleYum mascot The Flavour Fiend: They need to bring him back.

Which is more disgusting, Cucumber Pepsi or Crystal Pepsi? Since I never tried Cucumber Pepsi, because at the time they sold the stuff in Japan I had no contacts living on that island nation....(otherwise I'd be paying them for cases of the many flavours of KitKat bars that they sell over there)

The Big Mac Vs. The Big King. Your Verdict: Thank God we still have a few Big Boy eateries here in Michigan.

My thoughts about animation creator/executive producer Craig McCracken: While I've enjoyed his earlier work (it took one otherwise boring Sunday afternoon in the mid-1990s to get me hooked on his early Powerpuff Girls shorts), for some reason I just couldn't get into his latest project Wander Over Yonder....his early draws for the project which was posted here about five or six years ago looked most impressive, but...

Nigiri (Pressed) Sushi or Maki (Rolled) Sushi: Nigiri All The Way, Baby.....unless it's Tamago, given my abhorrence toward eggs.

KFC or Popeyes: Both, but I lean more toward the latter when I'm in the mood for some spicy fried chicken.

Last Comic Book Read: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Collection Vol. 1 by Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird (collection of the first edition TMNT comics from 1984)

Personal Favourite Japanese Candy: Puccho (that chewy candy with the "bits" inside)

You're very welcome. I just wasn't expecting you to churn out any St. Patty's Girls-themed art THIS soon, so I was quite surprised....most pleasantly, I might add.

From one Super Sentai fan to another, you are most welcome. Of course, Right now I'm doing a back-to-back watching of the first episodes of the Toei Metal Hero series JuuKou B-Fighter and it's "Americanised" counterpart, Saban's Big Bad BeetleBorgs, kind of a way to kill time on a boring Sunday afternoon.
