Welcome to the Funhouse...a mixed bag of arty crap that never really found a home anywhere else, so it got stuck here, like the gallery equivalent of the "Island of Misfit Toys." So enjoy your visit in this veritable boiler room of umop.com and please do not hold anything here too much against me...

UPDATE 12/25/2009:

Spoof ad I sketched for my buddy John E. Neon! Mostly making fun of him but also the '80s in general.

The Raven

One of a few images for a short feature film that flashes by in just a few frames... subliminally...

My humble entry into a Tivo contest from 2001 or so. I lost, of course.

Three musicians

Made some art in Jan. '04 for local CT act "That '70s Band"


Shiny delicious charicatures made for a dandy sticker sheet, featuring the five members of the Best-Ever 80's New Wave Tribute Band!

Why is he so happy? What kind of guy is he?

Good Ol' Guzzler

If this car offends you, all the better.


What the heck is this?

I really tried hard when I drew this.


I didn't try nearly as hard here.

A neato seven-pointed building.

Steak Urk!

Here's "Jot and Jab" again, at their finest.

Grisly, insubordinate quackery. Surprisingly, I was not fired.*


The band never looked funnier than they did when they rode the coldneck bandwagon in '97 or so.
