Pin-up of the Day- The Joker!

Joker's Smile's Just Skin Deep art by Taylor Lymbery

It's a day after Halloween and I don't have scary out of my system, yet. So I am taking a step back from some new work and I'm bringing in some older pieces I've done. This one happens to be kind of scary! This is my take on the Joker. I did this piece about a year and so ago. My friend and old manager, Domenick used to say that I looked like the Joker, so I used my face as a base for the insane Clown Prince of Gotham. I had break time and an extra board in my possession so I went for it. I honestly was not sure if this piece was going to turn out when I started it, but I believe that it worked out in the end. I did notice way after the fact that the nose and right side cheek are a little off. At this point there is not a lot I can do to fix it. But this piece is no loss! I do look upon this as an art lesson and I still got a rather scary take on the Joker in my gallery. Score! Next time, I think I'll go with a more comic book version of Joker, but still keep him frightening. Oh, and I'll get that nose and cheek right. You can also see this art piece here

All throughout the month of Movember, I'll be growing a mustache to raise awareness of prostate cancer and I'll be taking donations for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Do you want to donate?! Head on over to my Movember page to see photos of me struggling to make a blonde mustache show and to donate! 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

There's been an update to the store tabs on both Xenex the Bug Man, and this site. All of the print on demand issues, cafepress stores and commissions info will be under the new store tab on both this site and the Xenex the Bug Man site. Hopefully this page makes shopping a bit easier. Go and check it out! 

The Xenex the Bug Man website is updated with rather grand news that the long awaited issue 4 is now up for order. It's a great looking comic book! Head on over to the Bug Man site and see what I'm talking about!
