Elvis #366. The End.

And this forever concludes my Elvis-a-day task, challenge, deadwieght, etc. 366 Elvi in the can (and never once repeated an image)! Don't ask, "Why the extra one?", for this was a leap year.

Perhaps it will seem more satisfactory to potential viewers if I'm actually posting something EVERY (or every other) day. No, I will not keep drawing Elvis in 2009, but the drawing each day goal will continue. I have won the battle for now, but the war must go on...

Elvis #350 (aka Milestone VII)

The final "Milestone Elvis" of the year. #366 will obviously be the biggest landmark for me, but this is officially the last "milestone", in that it was something to be proud of each time I completed another 50.

Keeping with the routine of having an animal in each Milestone Elvis drawing (#'s 50 and 100 were coincidental and started the tradition), here he is with the beast that shares the same name with Elvis' best selling single of all time.

The Office sketch dump

Over the past few weeks I've been working on the cast of The Office, little by little. I think the only ones I'm missing now are Jan, Bob Vance and Mose. And maybe Roy. But he's been very absent for a long while.

*UPDATE! Finally got around to making a finalized digital piece. I hope to do more of these. Prints for sale! If interested, email me at

Nordberg: All right, listen up everyone! I want you to calmly file towards the exits. That's it, that's it! Nobody runs, just walk. Single file. That's it. Now if we just stay calm, no one's gonna be harmed by the huge bomb that's gonna explode any minute.

After 13 years of running free, the law could never just back off this fallen hero. Pro Football Hall of Famer Orenthal James Simpson was sentenced today for at least 15 years after choosing the wrong city and state to lead an armed robbery in a hotel room confrontation. He was merely trying to retrieve stolen items to give to the Goldman family, during a break from tracking down the killer or killers of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. But certain "evidence" and "witnesses" suggested otherwise.

On a technical note, I don't think the photo-realism look is my friend, but I thought it was necessary for the stamp idea. And an odd angle. After watching him live on tv today, I was seeing all sorts of great things that got lost in the angle I chose to work with. And very difficult colors to work with, and the more I stare at it, the more I dislike. But screw it, I'm finished.

P.S. Acrylic on chipboard.
