Zoidberg’s Painting

My wife teaches biology at MIT, but in her spare time knows her way around a set of colored pencils. I always say she’s a much better artist than I am a scientist, and the proof is in this X-mas card she made for me.

Zoidberg's Painting


This drawing commemorates the time my cat Zoidberg was working on a painting of Macho Man Randy Savage, and I came along and stepped all over it, then ran around the house yelling and making a mess like the greased-up def guy on Family Guy. It is based on a true story.

Macho Madness, Yeah

After a year and a half of doing nothing but digital paintings, I thought it was finally time to once again pick up a real paint brush and get my hands dirty. Here’s a painting I did for my friend Jeff. It’ a portrait of Macho Man Randy Savage.

I can’t take all the credit for this. My cat Zoidberg made a contribution with some paw prints, and it was my wife who suggested that Macho Man should be holding something. I figured a Teddy Bear was a perfect fit. I didn’t know Macho Man in person, but I doubt he hated Teddy Bears.
