Grandma Cyclops by Travis A. Louie

Grandma Cyclops is part of Louie's "Portraits and Oddities." In world where everything unusual is labeled odd or weird, Travis's work definitely stands out. Every piece of Louie's work has an element of the bizarre. If you visit his website you can read a mini auto-bio by the author followed by the author relating his experiences and his influences on his art.

My personal favorite is a Smoking Yul, a painting of a painting with a painter smoking as the painter walks past the painting itself.

Bone Head by Robert Craig

Looks sort-of like a photograph, but it isn't. This is actually acrylic on paper. As you can probably decipher, the subject is the skull of Mickey Mouse with a flesh-coloured Band-Aid placed on the side of his head.

I share a birthday with Walt Disney and it was because of this that I was overshowered with Mickey Mouse gifts as a tot. As a result Mickey has a place reserved in my heart. I've posted work with Mister Mickey as the subject before.

You can see more of Robert Craig's incredible work here.

Reeeeeeach by Jeff Thomas

Jeff Thomas is a 17 year old artist from Southern California. Lately I've seen less of these little cutified creatures making appearances in his art, but that's because his work is more of a reflection of his lifestyle now. You can view or buy some of his prints here. Shayna and Straight to Hell are my favorites.
