Captain Ahab

"..the madness, the frenzy, the boiling blood and the smoking brow, with which, for a thousand lowerings old Ahab has furiously, foamingly chased his prey-more a demon than a man!"
-Herman Melville

Happy Birthday Heather

My wife's birthday is on Sunday and she loves to cook. She has a binder which she keeps original recipes, recipes off the internet, and recipes from magazines in and has expressed an interest in me drawing a cover for it. So I did this for her birthday and gave it to her a little early.

Happy Valentine's Day from Chicago, 1929

I did this for the Avalanche Blog. The theme is 1920's gangster and, this being Valentine's Day, I could think of no more fitting a piece than a tribute to the Saint Valentine's Day massacre of 1929. Al Capone's men took out 5 of 'Bugs' Moran's men (plus 2 others), execution style, in a warehouse on Chicago's north side. Al Capone was conveniently out of town at the time. My favorite part of the story is the dude who's full of about ten bullets telling the cops "I'm not gonna talk - nobody shot me." before dying. That's dedication!

"It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage."

I can't help but get excited about the new Indiana Jones movie.
