  2. kimc says:

    I love your style! (is it true?)

  3. I love your style. great use of watercolor and line.

    That is so hillarious. You have the best (although sickest) sense of humor of anyone I’ve run across on here. The humor aside, the skill with which you produce your art is top notch. I’ve just looked back at all of your archived post and the thing that struck me most was the absolutely amazing ability you have for drawing facial expressions. That is one of the most difficult things to do in this profession and you have nailed it consistantly. Great work. Can’t wait for the next one.

    Terrible and kinda funny.

  6. Jeff G says:

    Great characters and nice linework. Love the dog, hope it doesn’t die.

  7. chippamunkey says:

    Haha, that is horrible… horribly funny that is.

  8. erika says:

    hehe, so wrong, but so good.

    Great illo, though a bit twisted. Brilliant execution (pardon the pun). I’m right at home with this though. Growing up, my dad used to read us jokes at the dinner table from his collection of books such as “Sick Jokes” and “More Sick Jokes.” He was also a big Mad Magazine fan, and your work would fit right in there too.

    LOL, funny take on the topic…love your style, will definately be back to see more!

  11. Excelente tus dibujos.
    Me gusta la técnica de la acuarela.

  13. Fiestoforo says:

    very charming and refreshing

  15. annax says:

    Oh my goodness. Brilliantly done!!

  16. Detlef says:

    great take on the topic……

    And if a double-decker bus,
    Crashes into us,
    To die by your side
    Is such a heavenly way to die
    And if a ten-ton truck
    Kills the both of us
    To die by your side
    Well, the pleasure – the privilege is mine.

  17. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!

    I want a large room FILLLLED with framed pics by you. This kicks butt. I love it.

    Blue skies

  18. constance says:

    An intended rescue turned horribly wrong! It’s tragic! But I love your watercolour works :)

  19. elegant lines, perfect gestures, and subtle color. excellent, once again!

  20. Zara says:

    Haha! Love the expressions! Great work!

  21. Amy Zaleski says:

    But did the dog survive? This is great for the theme…what an imagination!

  22. rockwatching says:

    Good illustration, cant really say I see the humor part that everyone is commenting on. Does it suggest something unfortunate is about to happen? – yes. Maybe I missed the clever twist. Maybe you never intended for there to be one?

  23. kg says:

    great work – the dog is definitely my fave of the piece.

  24. lil kim says:

    ha. love your dark humour. poor dog too.

  25. Willie says:

    That is so funny I can hardly stand it. Nice one!

  26. mmrtnt says:

    That is so bad.

    And funny!

    I love your use of watercolor – you really nailed the metallic aspect of the bus. Excellent work.


  27. Eddie says:

    Naughty but so so nice!

  28. Blake says:

    HAHA! This is a great juxtaposition of style and message. Great Job!

  29. jancko says:

    so good, made me laugh a lot :)
    I love their faces
    and I’ll say the dog wasn’t kill.

  30. Stephanie says:

    Great Idea! I love your use of watercolor and line.

  31. Yes, I like the humor/irony/comedy pathetique.
    And the pen/ink/wash work. Reminds me of R. Searle and/or Q. Blake. Will look for more!!
