Check out this year’s Christmas Card as drawn by the marvelous Mike Holmes of Mikenesses fame.
I haven’t had much time to work on this project but I figured I would share this wonderful addition to the collection. The misses had a baby on the 21st so next year we will have a new member on the card.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Rather than take a ridiculous family photo and send it out to family, friends and the random stranger we have decided to have a different artist draw our family. Back in October I send Mr. Louie Chin a request to do the illustration for my family’s Christmas card. After knocking a few ideas around we decided to move forward on a Family Four inspired card and a big ‘ol group shot with its inspiration coming from the cover of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. They were both so damn awesome that we had them both printed up and sent them out.
Do yourself a favor and go check out Louie’s incredible work for yourself!
When I receive an envelope back for my Celebridoodle project I never know exactly what to expect.
Jackie Chan sent over a nice 3x5 photo signed by him. Due to the size and nature of the photo I like to think he pulled it out of his photo album at home. The caption may have read, “Jackie visiting California Wine Country”
Bill Amend’s wonderful Foxtrot is one of my favorites and the includes of a personal drawing is fabulous…but a simple beard added to this doodle of Jason and I would have been just a bit happier.
I recently received a strange response from the infamous Roman Polanski. There is no denying his talent but I have a hard time respecting a beard hater and he has finally come out of the cloest as such! Please look at the note he drew on my photograph. It reads, “Shave for Christ Sake”.
if I won’t shave for my wife I will not shave for you.
Have you seen Steve Wolfhard’s Cat Rackham? No? You should! Go to his SITE and pick up Cat Rackham Loses It. Super funny! Head over to his personal SITE and see his life in comic form. I have never met someone as self-depricating as Mr. Wolfhard…and I’ve known me for years!
My Celebridoodle project has always been about art and styles and fun. But now its going in a whole new direction. I present to you the Celebridoodle Theme Song! That’s right folks. Thanks to the wonderful Thallet at Fiverr.com we can learn what a man will do once asked to use the word Celebridoodle in a song!
Received a few responses to my drawing project in the past month by celebs that didn’t reject but also didn’t participate. A very strange response from Roman Polanski being the most notable.
Update coming soon.
Stumbled on a fun site called Fiverr. I have spent hours, if not days perusing what people are willing to do for $5. There is a fellow that will beatbox a song for you. There is a gal that will write whatever you want on her forehead and then send you the picture. And don’t get me started on the guy who will teach you how to breath fire.
While perusing the Graphics section I found a couple folks that had pretty cool styles. This one is by a fellow named James Kim who is a storyboard artist over at Fox. Check him out. Throw half a sawbuck his way.
Geo Brawn IV (@Geo_Brawn) shot me with a silver bullet…but first he did this drawing of Wolfman Jon!
Wandering through Artist Alley at San Diego Comic Con can be a bit of a slog at times. Don’t get me wrong, it is my absolute favorite part of the con but when you are looking for an artist to sketch something other than Captain America or Batman it can get a little awkward. I hear a lot of “No”s when I ask artists if they would be willing to do a portrait of me. I also get a lot of strange looks. It makes it that much easier when an artist posts a sign saying that they will not only do a portrait…but one of you AS something. I saw such a sign on Geo Brawn IV’s table stating that he would make me into a monster or zombie. I am a huge fan of the Invisible Man but I came to my senses and figured my beard would be a great start on being a wolfman. So here I am! My daughter does not like this one. Not one bit.

I was not admitted to Hogwarts. I am pretty certain it was an oversight but even though I continued to petition for enrollment throughout high school I never heard back. My bloodline leads back to Salazar Slytherin so I know that when push came to shove and they put that sorting hat on my head I would have been placed in Slytherin. This lovely interpretation of that fateful day was done by the lovely Jenyffer Maria and if you are lucky enough to get into her exclusive commissions, you can enjoy a similar victory. Now to tend to my mug of butter beer.
Kevin Woody (@letunaman) is a wonderfully funny and talented artist. And he did this amazing painting of me! I met him at a convention and bought his great comic, Between Mars. I walked away from that convention thinking of nothing else but needing to add him to my collection. He has a style all his own and his sense of humour is bar-none. I have never met a man that loves sandwiches quite as much as him. I offered him a plate full of sandwiches in exchange for a sketch but he requested money instead….and now I am the proud owner of this wonderful painting. I can tell looking at his interpretation of me that he thinks I have a screw loose. Maybe more than one. This is probably the best interpreation of me as a serial killer that I have ever seen.
Check out his website at: Between Mars. Check out his shop and request a painting of your own. He does a great job drawing presidents and other famous beardos.
