Artist tip of the week 4

This will be short and sweet, unlike the reason I'm posting this tip. I will say up front that I have slipped a few times.
If you want to make money doing artwork, keep your political opinions to yourselves, especially on social networking sites!
No matter what side of the arguments (isle) you're coming from, I guarantee you WILL alienate or even anger HALF of your potential clients! I'm not saying hide, beat around the bush or flat out lie about your opinions or beliefs. My tip is, unless asked directly, keep your pie hole shut!

Tramp Warner/ Del Swanson tag team cartoon

Tramp Warner and I had a blast scribbling this out at the World of Wheels show. It's marker on gesso'd 1/4" masonite.

Portrait of Steve McQueen

I did this portrait with markers and colored pencils and put it in this years Pinstripe Legends charity auction.

2012 Pinstripe legends signs

These two metal embossed signs were done for this years Pinstripe Legends charity auction in Milwaukee. Had fun, helped some kids, Whoo Hoo!
