Cover for The Week again and again.
Cover for The Week Magazine coming out this Friday. Everything else I've been doing has to stay secret for now. Yes, there is a rifle scope on her fishing pole... laser site and everything. It even has GPS and a small dish on the other side of the reel. Also not shown are her sensibly heeled wader boots behind the arsenal of lures at her feet.

A cover and some postcards
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a pirate holding soldiers for the cover of The Week Magazine. I know I posted the Bob Dylan before, but this is the latest card I just sent out.
was great! Met some people at Topps and had a good meeting with them. I'm doing some celebrity Zombie cards for them. They have about the same sensibility of the Garbage Pail Kids. I "sharpened" my brush to get into all the gorree detail of making flies and maggots and worms and fresh brains being eaten.
I met up with Jason Seiler as he came in to NYC for the opening of "Books and Editorial" publishing at the Society of Illustrators on Friday night. I don't remember the musician's name that he painted a caricature of, but it was a really nice little piece. Said hello to his rep Sari Levy who seems to have a knack for repping some good people! James Bennet and I had a good talk about when he was doing the Garbage Pail Kids in the early 90's. Gregory Manchess had a nice landscape painting on the 1st floor although I heard he wasn't too crazy about the frame job on it... I didn't even notice. I think the best piece in the show was the Philip Burke painting of Steven Tyler. It was about 4 feet by 5 feet! Brilliant raw color laid down with confidence. Most of his work has the same impact to me. Seeing it in print is nice, but the original just blows me away! I found the whole day and night inspirational!
To follow up, Jason came by my studio on Monday to hang out. It was a good time!
