The Morlock and The Eloi

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Yes, The Time Machine by H.G. Wells got me inspired to paint a piece about The Morlock and The Eloi. And, I read an article about how we as a species are evolving into 2 separate species based on rich and poor, which is so very "Time Machiney". I've always been a fan of eating the rich anyway. It's their fault for being so succulent...so delish! Some day in the distant future you may see a Morlock, who slightly resembles me, turning the gears of some underworld mechanism to supply the patrician Eloi with a milk-fed diet of sunshine and moonbeams... only to be devoured by the poor brutish Morlock.

A boy can dream, can't he? (and I would totally rock that Morlock hairdo!)

Brainiac Club

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I'm working way into the night to get a bunch of illustrations done, so I have a feeling that I won't be getting an ounce of sleep tonight. I've been working for a company in North Hollywood creating backgrounds for an interactive web game and now I find I am getting up at 4:30 am and doing my editorial work here and then rushing into the Valley to work 8 hours on those backgrounds. Well, I got what I wished for...to be busy. Here's an illustration I just finished about joining the Mensa Group. If you haven't heard of them, it's a group for people with high IQ's. Nerds galore!

Now I'm starting all my finishes for a cover and 2 inside spots for The Washington City Paper. Maybe Tuesday I'll get to sleep again.
