A Shameful Experience.

A long time ago, I was asked to do a bunch of greeting cards tor Dubai. here’s the thing: I had to emulate the style of the weird Saudi Arabian artist that began the line and was probably put to death or something.

Anyhow, I never thought I’d show these to anybody but I guess I wanted to get it off my chest.

Here are three of the designs. I have no idea why the camels had to have a spandex tighty on.

    I enjoy seeing the variety of artwork you share with us. Spandex on a camel is a strange concept. My absolute favorite piece of your art is “The aPORKalypse”! Awesome sandwich!

      Thanks Jack! Do you have an Aporkalypse shirt? Send me 10 bucks, your address and your size and I’ll get one to you. (that’s 1/2 price!) Wrire me at my regular e-mail

  2. You are definitely up for a beheading!

    Two questions. How did you come across that job and how many did you have to do? “Camels in Spandex” sounds like a bad Disney movie.
