I'm getting ready to post some new stuff, but in the meantime here is something old that hasn't been online in a while:

It is a painting of Ernest rupturing forth from the womb of the universe. It's very thick and texture-y, and after wrestling with some bad scans (too dark, too bright, too flat, etc.), I decided no image of it on the internet was better than a cruddy & misleading image of it. But in the last couple months I've been going through all my boxes of old sketches and material for a secret project and found this slide, which isn't perfect but gets the job done.

I kinda wish I'd saved the concept for a subject more (visually) interesting than Ernest. But this was like 2002, and I was still thinking mostly along the lines of forgotten '70s & '80s culture. You know, before Hot Topic made it impossible to forget anything.
