Marc And Bobby's Dissent

My former editor Bobby and I have been talking about starting a political satire website for almost nine months. During that time we did a lot of brainstorming, pointless yammering, and procrastinating. Well, we finally put a blog together. I don't know if it will stay in the blog format (we've come up with some crazy ideas) but until we get something concrete and finalized, you can expect to see a few funny posts a week over at marcandbobby.blogspot.com/ Both Bobby and I will be contributing written editorials while I'll also post topical cartoons as well as some spot illustrations. As if that weren't enough for you to be giddy with excitement, my good pal and brilliant writer Kyle Constalie will be a regular contributor as well. So go check out what all the dissent is about!

WIP Holiday Card

Here's a mostly finished drawing I did for Melissa an my Christma-Hanu-Kwanza card. I've still got a little bit of touching up to do. Anyway, happy holidays everyone.

Ed Hochuli: Layin' Down The Law

Another watercolor in the bag. I thought I would do something just in black and white and focus more on mark making technique and what not.

Pizza, Pizza!

Here's another watercolor I finished up today. The lovely and cuddly Herman Cain is one of those characters who's campaign is going to gradually fall apart. Being the front runner is hard of course. And how you deal with the bumps along the way is just as important as your talking points during debates/speeches or whatever else. I never liked Cain, and I like him even less after this past week. He clearly doesn't know how to come out and tell the truth about some settlement that happened in the 90s. Hell, he can't even keep his story strait over the course of a couple days. Presidential quality? Perhaps not.

Christmas With The Boys

I just finished this watercolor up today. I alluded to my painting frustrations of last week in my previous post, and this here be the culprit. Despite all the problems the painting provided, I was happy with how the caricatures turned out.

Watercolor Warm Up

Well it's been a while since I've posted here, and I wish I had a good excuse. I guess I've just been slacking. Anyway, all last week I was working on a watercolor painting, and though it had been a while since I used watercolors, the thing was a pain in the ass the whole way though. So the only logical thing for me to do was buy some new watercolors and try them out. Oddly enough, I like them better than the brand I had previously been using and will subsequently revisit last weeks painting and post it here as soon as its done.

Above was a quick caricature of Melissa Mantzke
