Happy Birthday Mike Tyson

Something possessed me to digitally slop, and I mean SLOP a wee bit of color on today.

Some photography that deserves your attention...

I've been meaning to plug my buddy's photographic wizardry, as he has recently caved in and hopped aboard the blogspot bandwagon. I often like to pimp his work, because it belongs in a goddamn book. But that's his call.

Richard Ostrom is the name. You've been told, so get your ass over there!

Happy Birthday Mel Brooks

Happy Birthday Rev. Ted Haggard (6-27-09)

The Colorado Springs Reverend who had affair with a male prostitute who he was buying crystal meth from turned 53 yesterday. And just in time for Pride Weekend! I don't know, he looked to me like the straightest pastor I had ever seen.

Happy Birthday Angela Kinsey

And yesterday was Mindy Kaling, another actress from The Office, but I tend to go with whomever has more street cred (hence the Roy Disney drawing).

Happy Birthday Roy O. Disney

Happy Birthday Glenn Danzig (6-23-09)

Yesterday was one heck of a day for metal birthdays. Chuck Billy (vocalist of Testament) turned 47, Slash turned 44, but it doesn't get much more manlier or metal than a big bicep in your face from the 54 year old Glenn Allen Anzalone Danzig.

Happy Birthday Cyndi Lauper (6-22-09)

Happyy Birthday Al Hirschfeld

The Line King was still drawing and working daily when he died of natural causes at the ripe old age of 99. He would have turned 106 today.

Happy Birthday Paula Abdul

In an attempt to compensate for what I consider to be a lukewarm depiction of Paula Abdul, I will leave you with a couple of her drunken appearances on live news. Always good to see a celebrity let it all go and be as real as they possibly can.

*Fun fact: This concludes birthdays in the 40-somethings. I have now drawn every age from 40-49 (some of those more than a few times). Big deal.

Happy Birthday Ultimate Warrior Jim Hellwig)

Anyone who watched the WWF in the 80s or early 90s probably at some point heard the myth that their were 2 or 3 different Ultimate Warriors, because each guy who played him would die from overdosing on steroids. I never heard anything from a reliable source, until today when I was digging up some reference pics. Straight from his official website:

"There was only one Ultimate Warrior...I am not dead. Nor have I ever died. Don't laugh. There are plenty of kooks (too many) who write and inform me that I am or that I have -- and then demand I write back and confirm it!" I did some digging around on youtube and found a few keepers. One of them being the best anti-smoking PSA ever.

Happy Birthday Mike Holmgren (6-15-09)

The man who led the Packers to their 3rd Super Bowl victory turned 61 yesterday, and only 4 days after the birthday of the man who led them to their first 2 Super Bowl victories. Coincidence? Probably.

Happy Birthday Donald Trump (6-14-09)

Happy Birthday Olson Twins (6-13-09)

Creepy is what I was going for.

Happy Birthday Vince Lombardi

The man who put Green Bay on the map and legendary enough to have the Super Bowl trophy named after him would have been 96 today.

Happy Birthday Kate Flannery

Also known as Meredith from The Office, the most worthwhile comedy on television right now.

Happy Birthday Johnn Depp (6-09-09)

I am very much looking forward to the release of Public Enemies next month, much of which was shot right outside my hometown. Very odd choice, but I think it was due to a big tax break.

Happy Birthday Jerry Stiller (6-08-09)

On...WHITE paper! I think I may have squished his head a bit.

Happy Birthday Angelina Jolie

Anyone who wants to claim they don't find this woman to be all that attractive is a big fat liar attempting to go against the grain.

Happy Birthday Anderson Cooper

Here's to the most polished, suave ambulance-chasing son of a bitch in news today.

Happy June 1st, and Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe

I've said it before, but I have a tough time drawing pretty people. And those who have been caricatured a million times. A real double whammy I have here.
