…our Lucy Beighley commission!

Lucy Beighley original!

It’s hanging in our kitchen… right next to this:

Framed and hung next to foul language!

We’re running out of walls,


…who is the four-year-old daughter of our good friends Brett and Marci, to draw a family portrait of us (including our three beasts).

What began as one drawing soon turned into nearly two dozen. Brett and Marci were kind enough to send all of them to us.

Holy art!

Apparently, our family’s females (which is everyone but me) became Lucy’s muse.

It was a hard choice, but in the end we decided to frame this one:

The Shadys by Lucy Beighley.

Yes, that’s KB walking Mr. Fabulous, Meatshake, and Heisenberg while I tag along, picking up piles of their smelly turds.

As payment, we sent Lucy a gift certificate to a toy store near her hometown. She bought two stuffed animals with her hard-earned money: a fluffy cat she named Cat, and a stingray she named Sea Horse.

This makes Lucy my favorite kid ever.

Just one in a series of commissioned portraits,


…who I worked with on “The Roberts,” is looking for a few interesting commission and freelance gigs. Erik’s creative juices are flowing (gross) and he wants to utilize them on an original piece of artwork for you (also gross)!

Besides “The Roberts,” Erik’s work was published in last year’s “The Dude Abides: The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers” by Cathleen Falsani.

Erik does it all, from pen and ink to full-color paintings. Need proof? Check it!

So if you’re looking for some pretty new artwork for your bare walls be sure to hit Erik up! Check out his website and blog to see more work.

Creativity for hire,


…is a fantastic painter. He also happens to be making a push to drum up some new work, including both freelance and commissions.

He’s great at landscapes and plein air work:

And equally as awesome at portraiture, including these two pieces of his wife Karen Watkins and our mutual friend Marla Campbell, respectively:

Here’s a self-portrait he did looking all Abraham Lincoln-y:

He even did a portrait of yours truly a few years back:

So instead of buying some mass-produced wall garbage from Target and hanging it in your dining room, contact Carl through his website here and see about getting yourself some real one-of-a-kind artwork.

I want Carl to paint me as Nixon,


Old Poop!
