Can someone tell me what kind of world we live in...?

Boom! Biff! ... Tad! Drawing Adam West as Batman is always good wholesome clean fun, Citizen. Here's a rendering I did a fews days before shoving off to TikiCon, sans Batmobile. 

It is what it is. :P


Ironman--new illustration Part Deux

Ironman with traditional colors, part 2. Am I crazy for not wanting to go digital? (This is a one room insane asylum so, let me be. :)) Currently I am nitpicking the art and will have it up to show in it's completeness...soon. 'Scuze my A.D.D. but there's just too much going on right now and much seems to be vying for my attention.

Anyway, here's a quarter piece of Ironman.

(Is it just me or do uploaded images to Blogger seem to really fade out? My original jpeg has quite a bit more color intensity to it than what is seen here. Not that lame excuses will benefit my work, but I need every little bit of sum'un sum'un I can get to appear to look better. Help meeee!)

Be well,

A Christmas Carol

Chuck Jones art directed this animated short, "A Christmas Carol" back in 1971. My brother and I watched this very special piece during that time as kids, and about 6 months later the lithium  shooters finally kicked in and relieved us of the rather haunting and impressionable images. (No kidding, we were warped for a long time! lol! )

Granted, this piece is aged and is nothing compared to the trauma kids see on tv today, but still this is a fabulous piece of storytelling in the best of artistic sense. Take note of the voiceover talent, and the heavily rendered backgrounds.

The two drawbacks? It's way too short (less than 30 minutes) and the screen is small and is hard to see all of the wonderful background pencil work.

However, it's still worth the watch ( here ) and read the making here.

Merry Christmas!

I want one.

Ever since I was a kid, I've always wanted one of these.

This looks like a ton of fun, but for a ton of cash I am sure you can have one.

TV spot and Stanleyart

My friend, Jamison P. Reigle sent this YouTube.com url over to check out.  It's a tv news story about Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, and Brad P. Meltzer's latest book, "The Book of Lies". 
Plus, hold the applause, (ok, I will) it features a nano-second appearance of the piece I threw into the Siegel Shuster Society auction. Hey, it's appreciated. Help this lowly artist.

Check it out if you have a minute.

Funny and new old videos!

Sara vs. Joe, ala Saturday Night Live./Golly Gee, say it ain't so, Joe.

This one made my head hurt. The Lawrence Welk Show and the Lennon Sisters. Oh my.

Ironman--new illustration

Just another illustration prelim to share. The finish will post shortly. In the meantime here's a tune to make your day. (And check out this studio produced art. Very very nice.)

Thanks for looking,


Ultraman! Here he comes from the Sky!

Ultraman! Watch our Hero fly!-- I'm putting some finishing touches on this relatively new piece and I'll hang it here and on the site too. Enjoy--or just pretend to.
If you have no idea who Ultraman is, then go here.

Website being updated. Finally. Glory.

When I realize it's been--years--since I did a Stanleyart.com website update, I cringe. When I see the pages of really old artwork still posted on the site, it's then I realize that I should move my house over to Apathy Boulevard, on the corner of Yawn and Snore...gah.

But like our $700 Billion dollars worth of new taxes, (or in my case, new artwork)--it's coming.

Fortunately, incoming jobs aside, the site is being reworked. 

Thanks for stopping by.
