Peculiar Pictures 57 & 58
They are really good and eye catching pictures but I don't think they would go with my decor either....

Those would look weird hanging on my wall.

It's peculiar that these images haven't discovered broader appeal. Do you have an agent or belong to a group that markets your work? Why don't you approach (assuming you haven't) U.S Chamber of Commerce and sell them the sizzle in your work. Heck they may even ask you to produce new sizzling material for them. Great idea... eh?

Oh, what I'd give to produce an illustration with a PRIMARY market!

Shame, I would think the second one would have other markets.

I was wondering if the Locking Horns ones how hard it would be to replace the building in the background. I mean if you replace the bank with Capitol Hill or the White House all the sudden you have a whole new theme!

3 illustrations a day?? Wow, you really were cranking them out but you still managed to create well painted creative pictures.

They are interesting, and very well painted as all your work, although i'm not so sure about them as wall decor.

As long as your clients were happy. I imagine it was rather common for an illustration to not have a secondary market when the client was so specific. Interesting about how your art work sold and you made money...artist and a salesman.

As always, your work is VERY clever!!

Maybe you could take the "locking horns" illustration and change the faces to look like current Congressional scoundrels....er....leaders? ;)

P.T. Dilloway and Scott Park read my mind. Think you should rework it.

Love the meter head! It's applicable for a number of professions!

I really wasn't speechless! I meant to say that I agree with the Locked Horns suggestions.

I'm so far out of the art world that it's always interesting to hear how one part of the business operates.

Those are cool, especially the parking meter- head judge. Love, Janie

I wonder: Is it easier to paint to order, b/c they give you the concept? Or would you rather think up your own idea? Regardless, clever art, for sure.

Concept. Talent and technique are important...but concept is what makes it sell.

actually we have a Federal judge in our family and this would be a perfect gift for a birthday coming up! Plus we like it!

I knew you were an artist but I didnt realize that you had made such a career out of it. Where can we find some of your "multi-use" work?
By: Chris on February 9, 2017
I can see your point and fully agree. To me both illustrations show off your talent as an artist but they are very specific and not easily "transferable". I would still buy them for the artistry in them. Sometimes good art does not a context to explain what it means. :-) Greetings from London.

I've never known anyone who sold illustrative art so I had no idea how it worked. A good illustration is like a gift that keeps on giving. R
