***Update - Now on Sale*** Bluth Family Chicken Dance

***UPDATE*** For those who missed out on purchasing a "Bluth Family Chicken Dance" print from Gallery 1988 (it sold out on opening night, never made it to their website to purchase!) you're in luck. I happen to have a VERY limited amount of prints left from the original run and they are now on sale! Just click the link below to go to my Etsy shop and get yours before they are all gone!

 Well you've all been patient and now here is my piece for tonight's Gallery 1988 Arrested Development show; "There's Always Money in the Banana Stand". This is a homage to one of my favorite gags on the amazing show; the fact that everyone has a terrible impression of a chicken. Check out this YouTube clip and you can see a collection of all of them at once: Chicken Dance

The opening of the show is Fri, June 29th from 7-10pm and will run until July 21st. Here are the print details which will be available for purchase directly through the gallery and I will have some artist proofs available as well.

Size: 10" x 10"
Material: Giclee Textured Watercolor Paper
Edition: 25

Print #1 will be framed and actually has a little drawing on the print of Tobias Funke and will be $55. Here is a little photo of #1:

Well this series of doodles has just been a ton of fun and I can't seem to draw them fast enough. This time around we have The Mummy! I'm thinking some killer robots next or possibly a certain giant lizard are on deck! Stay tuned...


Check out this little baddie... The Wolfman! And would you get a look at those little jeans shorts; very stylin'. Next up; The Mummy!

Dracula **Update**

After showing this to some people (mostly my wife) we determined that the drop of blood in the word balloon wasn't obvious enough. Looked more like a tear then blood so I reworked it to be more obvious and Dracula related...

The original count... Dracula! I based his design on the Bela Lugosi version because I just happened to like that one the most. This is the 3rd in my new series of Classic Monsters of Horror and I am having lots of fun with them. I've got plans for a couple more but if you had to guess the next one, it would have to be a classic with a bullet... a silver bullet. Man these have just been the most awful clues...

For anyone who actually reads this blog... I think will be doing a print run of these. Just curious, would you guys prefer individual prints or one large print with the collected set? Thoughts?

Frankenstein's Monster

Next up in my Classic Horror series is everyone's favorite flat-top... Frankenstein's Monster! Maybe it's just me but all I can think about when I see Frankenstein is the very funny Herman Munster played by Fred Gwynne. Which I just recently found out they are revamping for TV as a new drama...?! and Jerry O'Connell is going to play Herman Munster...?! I guess as an average person I just don't understand 'big picture' things or how TV Networks are run. Oh well. Next up... a classic blood sucker who doesn't need blush, eye liner or a not so sunny disposition to be awesome!
