This image was originally inspired by the hypocrisy of the Trump White House and family. I originally drew this in 2017. I like the image, but the message was difficult for me to distill into something simple and understandable. And then the #metoo movement happened. The country owes these survivors more than we’re willing to admit. Not only are they bringing crimes to light, they are influencing the way we think about gender politics. For the better.
To understand Trump’s callousness to some natural disaster victims, you need to account for his racist world view.
Criminal enterprises are staffed by crooked people. Of course they can’t be trusted with secrets.
The second is a series of illustrations about a hapless steamboat captain.
Big surprise, Trump met with Putin and acted like a big orange coward.
This illustration is the first in a series that explore the exploits of the captain of a rum soaked cruise through a nondescript Disney inspired tropical jungle.
This illustration was mainly an excuse to play with dappled "jungle" light.
The lack of real compassion is shocking. After passing a multi-trillion dollar tax cut for their richest donors they've proposed a budget that recoups that money from programs that benefit the poorest Americans. Including children. They will balance the budget, but it will be on the backs of the poor and middle-class. With that level of callousness, their treatment of immigrant children really shouldn't be a surprise.
While the GOP kisses his ass, Trump is leading our country down a new and dark path. This isn't the America I grew up in.
I made this illustration our cat for my wife on our 24th wedding anniversary.
Separating children from their parents is evil. How much of America's soul do we have to trade for Trump and his followers to feel like they've finally made the country great again?
This is a drawing of Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room birds and one of the little tiki's that drop from the tree in the waiting area behind the Dole Whip stand.
This illustration is a blend of tiki culture and retro sci-fi. The drink, the Lunar Ambrosia, is blended and features glowing ice cubes for effect.
I've always been a fan of the villainous space queens in 50's sci-fi. They're constantly ordering people to their deaths while lamenting the resourcefulness of the story's hero. A hero that they secretly love...
Michael Cohen has been in the news a lot lately. His behavior on behalf of President Trump is EVERYTHING people should dislike about political corruption. An admitted "money funnel", this "fixer" appears to pay off porn stars while accepting huge sums of money from entities in the US and abroad.
This illustration was inspired by a tiki mug that I bought from House of Tabu. I began to imagine how the cracks and crevices a traditional wooden tiki might blend into the gnarled wrinkles of a mummy. That got me thinking about how trees in the high desert seem to grow out of rocks with tough, finger like, roots.
Anyway, this drawing is named for the drink I came up with to fill the mug I bought. Ancient Egypt was known for beer. I decided to concoct a tiki-beer-coctail. I think that it worked pretty well.
The most prolific liar in American presidential history, Donald Trump's lie count is 300O lies and climbing. Here are some of his greatest hits.
For too many Americans, Trump's lies are easy to fall for. Citizens of this country gleefully sold out any minority groups that Trump said were standing between them and his plan to Make America Great again. This kind of ethicaly bankrupt deal with the devil has no good outcome. At best, 30% of the US will be ashamed of themselves. At worst, 60% of the US will unhappily live under the rule of a "democratically" elected Russian stooge of an autocrat.
This illustration is based on my version of Don the Beachcomber's original recipe. The tiki is based upon petroglyphs I photographed on the Big Island, Vintage masks and the voodoo version of zombies.
This is a classic blended drink from Don The Beachcomber. It's usually a reasonably mild drink (by tiki drink standards). Mine gets a significant kick from the very strong homemade liqueur I make.
