Head in a jar



*sigh* Heads in Jars... too much Mignola on the brain I guess. I actually have a whole story idea where floating heads in jars are a big part of it. Someday, I'll draw that bad boy, or make a movie, or something. Until then, I get to sneak little paintings of them in on the weekend.

This is a painting for the guy in the previous post... his wedding present if you will. Isn't this a great wedding gift? Who needs silverware when you can have some sort of caricature of your head floating in a jar in space!? Maybe this will take off, I'll be swamped with absurd wedding gift requests, and I'll be able to quit my day job and become a full time painter. Yeah, you're right, it'll never happen. Guess I better get back to my boards.

Oh hey look, it's the original sketch. Looks a little different from the final huh? Yeah, that happens. Okay, well have a nice day.

Hey, thanks for the kind comments everyone. I'm still here, just been super busy and occupied by work.

Anonymous, sorry, my french is horrible and I couldn't get a good translation. I think you might be asking whether I will ever have a comic or book? The answer is, I hope to at one point, but no plans currently.

Thanks again everyone.
