ever see that commercial for “i can’t believe it’s not butter” with the beardster selling muffins at the fair and the two cute women who are mysteriously drawn to him? i have, i watch a lot of TV, and that’s alright, TV is your friend…but that’s for another update…anyway,  he’s all dreamy and scary at the same time lathering up his wears for the new customers telling them all about the virtues of the product. i tell you what, all i can think off is beard-o’s hairs in the butter…pretty disgusting…but that’s just me….feel free forwarding this post to the people at “i can’t believe it’s not butter” if you agree.

here’s a picture of the girls looking forward to nasty beard hair stuck in their fake butter spread…the redhead is my future ex-wife ;-)

here’s a nice example of kane’s work that has pen and ink original on the left and final comic cover to the right. many of the same things are going on with this one as i have mentioned in previous gil kane posts…the brilliant hands, figure pushing out of the cover this time without a window frame, and a dynamic composition…but this one goes above and beyond the previous ones. here kane is flexing his knowledge of the human anatomy and is pushing it just about as far has he can get away with, totally anatomically convincing. one word sums it up, spectacular. this is one of my all time favorite daredevil covers gil kane did…and he did a bunch. it was hard to narrow it down to just one daredevil, that’s why i may talk about more in the future ;-)

ok…pictured is me adding the red to a piece i worked on last night. it’s part of a short series…so far…it’s call “it would be nice not to have me in my life III”, (see the finished work HERE). on these i add DNA, which is my blood. in the picture is where i cut when i do this, the blood sets up nice on my left hand like a palate, so i paint from that. you’ll notice other scars there from other pieces i had worked on…now i am not a cutter, it hurts, i don’t know how chicks do it, i’d stick with an eating disorder if it was me….not to make light of those issues, if someone reading this is a cutter i suggest therapy. i see a therapist for my issues and it does help so i’m not being glib.

•the blood changes to a brown over time which is pretty cool, i think it’s better looking once browned up
