Happy Birthday Ted Bundy

Had he not killed roughly 35 people and been sentenced to death by the electric chair, Ted Bundy would have turned 63 today.

Would you believe this guy is 65 already? Well you ought to, because he is.

Happy Birthday Yanni

Here is a little something to lift your spirits for the day. It's a real wonder that world peace has not yet been achieved with a beautiful man like this roaming our great green earth.

Happy Birthday Chales Manson

For various reasons it's kind of hard to believe that he's still alive, but equally strange that he's only 75. And that he's only 5'2".

Happy Birthday Leonardo Dicaprio

I was relatively happy with the sketch, but now that I've inked it, I'm not sure any more. Oh well, life goes on.

Happy Birthday Leif Garrett

The Melvins are, in my opinion, one of the greatest "hard rock" bands out there (or whatever label they could be given). Although they might not consider themselves grunge, they have a lot of street cred for playing a huge part in the grunge scene, largely because Kurt Cobain went to high school with them, was basically their roadie, wanted nothing more than to join the band, and cited them as a huge influence when Nirvana started to become a household name. That might be the closest brush the Melvins ever got to any real fame or stardom. They've always fallen just a bit under the radar, and probably always will. I'm sure they like it fine that way. I know I do.

Anyway, one of my favorite stunts or "artistic statements" the Melvins ever made was recording a faithful cover of the tired, overplayed "Smells Like Teen Spirit", getting Leif Garrett, a has-been 1970s pop idol, on vocals.

Happy Birthday Maria Shriver

I think I may have made her look like too much of a Jackson, and not enough like Skeletor. Better luck next time.

Happy Birthday Ike Turner

The hands that beat Tina would have turned 78 today.

Happy Birthday Pat Buchannan

And now I'm off to Ohio for the week for the 18th annual International Society of Caricature Artists convention. But I don't really need to share that, for I have all this birthday nonsense to magically post on it's own while I'm gone.
