i'm headed to LA this week! so i'll be traveling, not posting for a bit. paintings will recommence upon my return!
this girl emailed me three years ago requesting a picture of herself. between then and now, she graduated from school and lost her college email address. so my email to show her the finished painting and get her mailing address was returned to sender. i actually found her on facebook and sent a message but since we aren't connected as friends, it was put in her "other" inbox that doesn't give the user a notification so she hasn't noticed it's there. in the middle of typing this, i decided to do a little more investigating and i found her fiancée on facebook. so i just messaged him to his "other" inbox, too. i hope one of them sees it. otherwise i'll have to investigate even more ways to hunt her down. this project has made me seem like a creepy weirdo.

this is Zoidberg from Futurama. the guy that voices him, Billy West, also voices Phillip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth and Zap Brannigan. plus he voices Stimpy and Doug and Invader Zim and Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd in Space Jam and over 120 characters in his career. it's crazy! and there are a bunch of other actors just like Billy who do tons of iconic voices across different shows but most people don't realize it. i'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that you can't see them.

i didn't know kiteboarding was a thing i wanted to try but then i painted it and now i do. that was also the case with my Guy Riding the Cathedral of Learning, Mr. Pibb, Space Ballerina and Ryan Gosling paintings.

four and a half years ago, i did a series of all the principle characters from Homestar Runner for a good friend of mine. well, that friend just had a birthday. so today's and tomorrow's paintings are a couple of non-principle characters for him to add to his wall.
