Robert Hughes

Robert Hughes is an art critic from Australia. He is very passionate about art and in the documentary "The Mona Lisa Curse" tells a very tradegic story of how he watched the art world turn from one ran by museums (who cared about beauty, progress, and art) to one that was ran by private art collectors (who only care about money). The documentary was first put out by the BBC and can be seen in full on youtube. In the film Hughes talks down over-rated "artists" such as Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, and other pompous artists who have given the art world a stereotype of pretension and snobbery. He sees very much on level with myself and therefore has become one of my new favorite people. The documentary is sweet but also sad and is one that all artists and art enthusiasts should watch. Two thumbs up.

Two new books!

Kday and the Knight is a children's book about two friends with silent K's. They quickly find themselves in a mystery when they discover that someone is stealing the letters from the very book you are reading! Kday and the Knight climb out of their panels in order to scour the book and catch the culprit. Throughout this surreal world, they encounter suspects who divulge clues based on literary terms. Use your knowledge of the english language to help Kday and the Knight catch the letter-thief!

Crow's Nest is a nautical-themed comics anthology, collected and edited by me (also I drew a story in there). Its a series of short stories and jokes by over a dozen amazingly talented artists from around the world (including the US, the UK, Brazil, Chile, and others)!

Another 90 Minute Sketch

So I did another 90 minute sketch, this time Darkwing Duck meets Doctor Strangelove. Its very rare that someone can say they've done something that has never been done before. But I have. Never before in history have these two been mashed together in a single fan art. By being unoriginal, I have been completely original!!! Muhahaha!!! Strange how that works..?

Also, I decided to do a quick colored version as well. So that one is less of a 90 minute sketch and more like a 105 minute sketch.
