To bid on this slice of hilarity:

OK, lemme explain...

I have two Olde English Sheepdogs, and the Atlanta OES Rescue is having a little eBay fundraiser starting tonight. I'll post the link as soon as the auction goes up. All moneys raised go to helping dogs (specifically Olde English Sheepdogs) get into good, loving homes.

This goofy bit of whimsy is my contribution! If you're new to the gallery, I did the covers for DC Comic's CATWOMAN for a number of years. This glorified convention sketch is a fake cover showing Selina 'Catwoman' Kyle switching from Team Cat to Team Dog (very reluctantly!)

20" X 14", pencil, Pitt pen, and COPIC marker (warm and cool grey) on Strathmore Drawing paper.

I have a serious sinus headacha, and I loathe Christmas.

If anyone feels the need to rail against me for asking for charitable donations for a dog and not a human (like the last time I tried toget help for a dog in need)...

1. I've donated a bunch of money recently to cancer research, because my older cousin Bobby Coates, who gave me first comics (including Fantastic Four #81) as hand-me-downs when I was a child, died of liver cancer in November. I also donate to Veterans charities. So, no grief about helping dogs, ok? I help people when I can, as well.

2. If you DO feel the need to post something negative about the subject of my helping animals, even as a joke, I will ban you from my gallery. I'm not kidding. The last time I tried to be a decent person and help an animal in need, some people felt the need to make my life miserable.

3. If you DO object to any of my minor charitable endeavors, and feel the need to post about it here, to my face... do the world a favor and take the time & energy you would waste posting your hateful drivel, and donate $5 to some charitable endeavor you DO approve of. No trolling, no flaming, just shut up and do something nice with your disapproving energy.

That's just for the small, SMALL handful of people out there that just enjoy disharmony, anarchy, and making me unhappy. As for the many, many wonderful people who really make this gallery a reaffirming pleasure to maintian:

Merry Krismahanuukwanzikah!

You know what makes you such a lethal art ninja? Your ability to not only draw/ink/paint/photoshop... it's your skill at digging out emotion from a sheet of paper and some ink. I can't see enough of your work. I can't. I can't do it. No way. :)

I've been looking at your cat woman art for the past few years and it just hit me...She reminds me of Audrey Hepburn.

I love your Selina Kyle artwork!!! <3 she is so beautiful and stunning. She must take from Audrey Hepburn; she looks just like her. But with a more sensual edge x]

This is hilarious. Loved coming across it in my recently purchased copy of "Slayboy." Took me a minute to figure it all out...but it's funny, and superbly if anything you do is not.

Your style is ridiculously beautiful. Even when drawing totally ridiculous subjects. And those dogs are adorable; as an active member of the RSPCA (even though my specialty is cats) I think what you do is wonderful <3

Make hate comments? No way, my mom didn' raise no fool...

The only "negative" thing I could say that looking at that suit make me itchy.. (sitting here in 87% humidity)

Sorry about the sinus headache...

...i just got the joke right now...

(to be fair, the art blew me away 6 months ago, that i didn't even realize there was a joke in there, too)

Oh how could I have missed this piece! Having lived with one of those all-nose-and-no-eyes dogs for nearly 11 years I know this goes for a good cause. It's been nearly 2 years since his passing and (of course) I think he was the greatest dog ever lived. Memory lane aside I also adore Audrey's beauty so all I can see in this work of art is double (triple) win. =)

I'd read old english sheepdog woman. I'd pull her every month, and even get her event tie-ins.

What an awesome cover! :D

I'm so sad that I only found it now. Of course, the reality is, the bidding went waaaay beyond what my budget can take (even for a worthy charitable cause. Winning bid was $2,551! You rock! Take that, bitter complain-y people!)
