Coffee Mugs

A Smirk, a Titter, a Chortle and a Sneer,
went to the bar to have them a beer.
said the Smirk to the Titter: "I laugh without fear!"
said the Chortle riposte: "I laugh with a tear!"
the Titter replied: "MY laugh is unclear..."
said the Sneer to the rest: "Where the hell is my beer ?!?"

IF ...toy

Toying with our emotions is stock and trade for actor Jack Nicholson; his characters can wind you up slowly and steadily only to slap you sideways ~creating a persona both appealing and repellent at once
Here's Johnny Joseph Nicholson

Coffee Mugs

'Elsewhere' is where it is always happening ~the pursuit of the 'elsewhere~happenings' often makes the pursuer more of a happening than what they happen to imagine 'elsewhere' to be.

IF ...cultivate

The father of American literature cultivated his education, his characters, his persona, his attitude towards hair, and even his pen name, Mark Twain. Soon he would also cultivate followers, imitators and a standing as the seminal figure of the American novel.

Lucy In Disguise (part 3)

A firmer gelling of the overall composition below, I've decided to play a bit more with space... a few details still to be ironed out; the next step then will be tighter rough sketches of the characters in position. Farther down are some Ethel studies...
with varying degrees of success.

Coffee Mugs

Routine routines are a death knell. Routines that offer explorations and variety are the juice of life. Choose wisely.
~and try different roasts now and again.

IF ...stir

Some would say she barely stirred at her house in Amherst, but internally, Emily Dickinson took That short, potential stir That each can make but once, and made it count in the world at large ~~and for decades on...

Coffee Mugs

Creating an obscene scene with the epicene is always a joy for the caricaturist, it's a nice challenge to push the vague~o~meter directly straight up and centered.
not as easy as it looks...

IF ...warning

To admit that the waters around you had grown was not a warning well-heeded at the time Bob Dylan rang the clarion bell ---(although everything was a-changin')... soon after, Bob himself would a-change. Electrically. To the ironic dismay of many fans...
The curse it was cast.

Coffee Mugs

A smile perplexes an incoming frown or scowl ~doesn't phase the caricaturist though... we, who are happily thus employed, simply latch on to any irregularity present in the smile and have at it. In exchange, we return OUR smile to the sitter.
