That last one was terrible, even by my standards.  Here’s something a little more conventional.


Born to Run

September 17, 2009

I’m back!  With a new title (“HIGH STEPPIN’!”), a slightly new look, and, most importantly, a new category of Silly Little Pictures.

Behold!  Silly little pictures: classic album covers edition.

For our first installment, I’ll ruin – err, pay homage to – my all time favorite album.  Yup, it’s “Born to Run.”

Look at that smudge between their heads. A rather pitiful result of an attempt to white-out an arm I accidentally drew coming out of Bruce’s head.  It’s tempting to apologize for it…but really, there’s so much to apologize for with this picture that once I start, I’ll be at it for days.

Compare and enjoy:

Suddenly I turned around, and she was standing there…

Haven’t done a “silly little picture” inspired by song lyrics in awhile.  Here:

Fashionable Pirate

July 18, 2009

Yar, an’ here he comes swingin’ in on his zip line, here to rob ye’ o’ all yer booty, me lads!

Indeed, a pirate so fiendish, so dreadful, so non-conformist, he needs no crotch on his pants!  Arr, tremble in fear o’ this villainous fury o’ the seven seas!  Shiver at the legends of his past deeds o’ mayhem, and fortify yer own pants as he pillages an’ plunders his way across  land an’ sea!

Watch out for this guy:

This is Blockhead, who just wants to be.

I suppose that other guy is “Smudgehead.”  Hopefully that’s just a temporary condition for him, though.

Lost in the Flood (Self-Portrait # 6)

July 15, 2009

So, did I ever tell you about the time I got stuck in a flood and almost drowned in my car?

Two years ago – to the day – I got stuck in a flood  and almost drowned in my car.  Escaped through the window.  Watched the car float down the highway.  The firemen said there were four ways I could’ve died.

Here is my dramatic interpretation of those events:

He noticed somebody killing a rat in the corner.

Hee Heeeeee

For Michael Jackson – and anyone else whose first memory of music is buying the Thriller LP at the Crazy Eddie’s on Cony Island Avenue in Brooklyn across the street from their grandmother’s house.

He sees her hand…

February 12, 2009

You know that old Genesis song that goes “she sees the hand and is he gonna touch it?”
That’s because the real lyrics are actually “she seems to have an invisible touch, yeah.”  But that didn’t stop me from misunderstanding the words for over 20 years.  I was devastated when I found out I’d been singing the wrong thing in the shower all that time.

The good news, however, is that I guess I wrote the former lyrics myself.

So, for anybody out there who’s an awkward mess like me…

Happy almost-Valentine’s Day!  Vamlumtime’s is serious times!
