Why does work have to be so WORKY?
Actually, only once or twice a year does my day job load get intense, and I actually have to go the extra mile for the team. I can't complain. I'm a lucky guy!
So anyway, I did not finish the Barack EveryThing, but I'll post a small chunk of the Design® marker "underpainting". This is not my standard practice - I don't really have a standard. But it's pretty typical for an EveryThing that I'm taking to the upper level. I'll sketch it out, then add some dark marker hilites, then some lighter color fill-ins, then more dark, then light, back and forth. I like to build colors up like that. Even though a lot of it gets covered by paint, and often paint of a different color. There's a lot of orange, pink, purple and a little bit of blue under all that ebony.

Here's an interview with Prohibition Party candidate Gene Amondson, my new cultural hero. I think he'd make a horrible president, but like Shooby Taylor or Divine, he's a fascinating character. Here are some of his surprisingly good paintings. And his PIE BOOK! I bet Obama would like that! Look around in his website for all kinds of interesting things. And remember - BOOSERS are LOOSERS!
