Hiking Into My Brain

Photobucket
Megan at Spring Lake Park in Penfield/East Rochester area by our house.  Not sure why it's called "spring lake" since there's no lake.  Just Irondequoit Creek...

AND NOW FOR SOME MORE FOUND ART!!!
Photobucket
"First To Fly?"  This is from a school project I was working on, which was illustrating a weird book I found about Michigan mysteries.  This was about a guy who claimed to be the first to fly a plane.  Interesting fact: The character on the right is based on Bruce Willis and at one on the left is Joe Millionaire.

Photobucket
"Manhunter" from the same series.  If I remember correctly, it was about a lunatic who hunted hunters.

Photobucket
"Dexter/Hillsdale Incident."  Something about UFOs or flying donut holes?

Photobucket
"Where's Jimmy" I think the semester ended as this is an unfinished piece about Jimmy Hoffa.

Photobucket
Self portrait from 2003 with silkscreen.  This was inspired by a Russian religious icon painting that I turned into regional humor...

Self portrait for August 2006 zine

From July 2004 zine (detail): Safety Sam was a creation of mine for a group promoting water safety in Muskegon.  They use to have a small picture of him on a sign at Pere Marquette Beach and pass out bookmarks at local schools.  Doubt either are still there.  He's a trout that needs a life preserver.  Then there's Sparky Anderson, former coach of the Detroit Tigers

Photobucket
From July 2004 zine (detail): If I remember correctly, this was inspired by a drawing on Aristotle or Socrates.  Either way, the philosopher was thinking, not sleeping while the TV was on.

Photobucket
From July 2004 zine (detail):  Angel with hockey equipment and my Aunt Linda's dog.

Photobucket
From July 2004 zine (detail):  Man with a big fish

Photobucket
From July 2004 zine:  Raccoon, cactus, Belle Tire guy, and a monkey setting pins.  Also, one of my favorite signs of all time.

From July 2004 zine: French soldier at Mackinac Island

Photobucket
From July 2004 zine: Inspired by an Egyptian tomb, I believe.  There was some writing in the boxes on the original publication.

Photobucket
From August 2006 zine (detail): My friends Nick, Matt, and Brian shopping at Maxwell Street Market in Chicago.

Photobucket
From August 2006 zine (detail): More inspiration from Maxwell Street Market with the sign.  "EVERY'S THANK IN THEY BOXES BE $1.00!"  I was sold at the googly eyes.  The weird character building guy was someone I saw dressed like this at the Two Way Bar in Chicago. He walked in, looked around a bit, and walked back out.  It was not anywhere near Halloween.

THANKS FOR WASTING YOUR TIME WITH ME!  HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY!
