Robert,

Mahalo for the pointer to "The Thrilling Adventure Hour" podcasts... I'm an avid fan of old time radio shows and their more contemporary recreations. When American Movie Classics ended their Remember WENN series, I was inconsolable. Really nice work on "Sparks Nevada" in progress.

I finally got around to framing the mini art print you sent, "Moonlight on Ku." Photos at the Blowfish Bar are posted here.

-Tom



Thanks Tom! I don't have a huge knowledge of old time radio outside of Abbott & Costello, The Shadow and You Bet Your Life. Odd how these things make me feel nostalgic for a time I was around for! Same thing with Woody Allen's Radio Days.

I hope you give Sparks a few listen's. The show has been performed since 2005 I believe, but the podcasts only started being recorded about 2 years ago. So the first few episodes give you the feeling you're missing something...but the humor of the characters win out. In the Thrilling Adventure podcasts look for something called THIS AMERICAN WIFE which is a NPR parody/humorous interview with the characters designed to help you "catch up".

Also very good is Beyond Belief (from the same production) It's a Thin Man styled show. 2 married booze hounds solving paranormal mysteries....very funny!

Finished up my Sparks Nevada painting. I'm really happy with this piece. The folks over at The Thrilling Adventure Hour loved it and have asked for a hi res file of it for their website! The finished piece plus the faux pulp cover I did for it is over at www.zerostreet.com

I also created an author's page over at Goodreads. If any of you who purchased the book are members there, I'd love for you to add me and give a quick review (there or over at Amazon).

Started a new cigar box painting and may even go ahead and start the Tarzan painting I'd been thinking about! Stay tuned!

Started this new cigar box painting last night. I was going through my sketches, looking for my next painting, came across my Tarzan sketch that was posted here a few weeks ago. Definitely will be starting that soon, but I felt like tackling something else, looked through a few other sketches and then Sven's book and upon seeing the Mai Kai's mystery girl I knew that'd be it. Searched around for some other pics and found one I felt was right to base my painting on....so here are some pics and stay tuned!

She's going to be beautiful. I already love the lighting (though I know it may change directions several times before it's finished )

That's true, MDM. Zero is sneaky. This time tomorrow and the bikini-clad Mystery Girl may be Larry from the Three Stooges playing bongos underwater. The weird thing is that he'd still make it work.

Coarse ribaldry aside, Robert, this one looks like it's going to be great.

Thanks Wendy!

Mike and Greg, what you two don't seem to understand is that all those changes you joke about are just further proof of my great lack of planning!

Robert, maybe I mentioned it before but Michael's crafts sells boxes in the shape of books that would be cool for a pulp fiction book cover. Since I can't paint, I printed this image and decoupaged it to the box

Yeah I believe you mentioned this before. You know just yesterday I was mentioning to a friend that my recent Sparks Nevada cover made me feel like doing some faux Tiki pulp covers....this would be a cool idea, the only issue I see is the text would have to be done by hand, and I ain't no Sam Gambino! Of course I could always do what you did with a photoshop'ed print of the painting!

Zero if you wanted to do the Tiki Pulp, you could find a font you like and fit it to size in a dummy in photoshop. Then Print out the lettering and get some carbon paper and trace it onto the painting. Then just fill in with paint. I did a similar method for the front of my puffa rice parody cereal box; I created one set of letters based on the original, lifting out the real letters when possible, and faking the others not present. Then I traced it onto the painting. It's pretty easy and there are lots of free fonts out there with a pulp style feel.

Did you talk the missus into posing for you or are you just able to see her in you mind's eye and paint her?

I always enjoy the play-by-play. It's fun to watch it all taking shape. If she turns out to be a chimp I'm probably going to need counseling.

More counseling than already, I mean.
