The Tourist

Conditions were bad where he stayed
On the roaches he used lots of Raid
The whole trip was a mess
But he couldn't care less
All that mattered was that he got lei-d.

Coffee Shop Girl 3

Another coffee shop girl.
Sketched Wednesday evening at kava House.
I took the hair and basic structure of the girl's
face and embellished it from there.
Add in some mid-century doodly-oos and
some Photoshopic hoodoo and here she is.

Also: Check out two new posts over at SKINSVILLE!

X-mas Luau Show at Strychnin Gallery

This is the swanky poster for the upcoming X-mas Luau
show at the Strychnin Gallery in Berlin.
Yours truly is one of the featured arteests! :)

Soo, if you're traveling abroad this December...

Alligator Ambush

When an innocent gator walked by
You decided you'd give it a try
Your ambush was set
You will never forget
That look of surprise in his eye

The Great Strangini!

Strangini's act took a whole lot of guts
Some repeatedly called him a putz
Working with squirrels
Instead of with girls
Meant risking the loss of his nuts

Coffee Shop Girl 2

Here is another customer from the Kava House.
I liked her hippy/bohemian outfit and her
oversized bag (slightly exaggerated here, but not
by much). She looked like a really pleasant person.

Monkey & Mann

This is an in-progress scan of a painting
I'm working on just for fun. It's acrylic
on wood and measures 6"x12".

It's an advertising image for the
short-lived 1967 TV show "Monkey & Mann".
The show featured the adventures of suave
secret agent, Derek Monkey, and his
unorthodox partner, Mannookoo, as they
traveled the globe taking on the enemies
of Freedom and Democracy.

The show debuted in June of '67 and was
a critical success. Audiences, however, had
had their fill of simian related programming.
Also airing that year were such shows as
"That's My Chimp", "The Ape from A.P.E.",
"Monkeys, Monkeys, Monkeys!", the third
season of "Nannette & The Chimp", "A Banana
for Larry", "The Chimp and I", "The
Monkeyshriners" and the game shows,
"Mr. Monkey's Money Mania"
and "Grab My Banana".

The show lasted a single season and was
canceled after 13 episodes.

Garage Sale Girl

Another drawing of a woman shopping.
These have been popping up a lot lately.
I'm not sure why, but I'm going with it.

This befreckled cutie stumbled across a
very cool sale and has found herself a
a nifty mid-century sculpture.

Coffee Shop Girl

Girls with off beat beauty always
catch my eye. This gal had a certain
indefinable something that I tried
to capture in these sketches.
I don't know if I caught it, but it
was fun trying.

NSTHS: Chaka

Tonight on Not-So-True Hollywood Story


After the cancellation of Land of the Lost,
Chaka's career hit the skids. Booze, drugs
and carousing took their toll and Chaka
was forced to make a living doing
personal appearances at store openings
and used car dealerships. Needless to say,
his belligerent attitude (as exemplified
in the above illustration) quickly ended even
these pathetic employment opportunities.

A shell of his former self, Chaka finally
hit rock bottom. He checked into rehab and
found religion. Once sober, he shaved off all of
his hair, returned to his given name, Stanley
Chakenberg, and married a performance
artist he met while detoxing.

He now lives with his wife and 22 children in
Montana where he raises chemical free chickens
and is working on a memoir entitled "I was a
Hollywood Monkey Boy: A Cautionary Tale".

Land of the Lost, baby!

Keep on Snappin'

Back in '62, an artist named
Art Crummy (hated seeing his name
in the phone book) came up with a
drawing he titled "Keep on Snappin'".
He had it printed on posters, t-shirts
and dozens of other products in an effort
to get it to catch on with the nation's youth.

It never happened for him and the art
was lost to the ages.

Years later, R. Crumb came up with
"Keep on Truckin'" and gained the
popularity that Mr. Crummy never knew.

Years after Crummy's death the original
art for "Keep on Snappin'" was discovered
in the basement of a Chuck E. Cheese in
Des Moines and is presented here
for your viewing pleasure.

Was Crummy robbed of his rightful glory?

You be the judge.
