Early Fan Art

October 5th, 2015 · 5 Comments

This early drawing of Popeye and Bluto shows remarkably little skill. I failed to capture many essential characteristics of the characters. I even left off Bluto’s beard. I think that’s Bluto. It’s undated; I can only hope that I drew it when I was five, not fifteen. I still like Popeye. Maybe I should try […]

May 29th, 2012 · No Comments

Eddie Gray, my ventriloquial sidekick, became a detective in this skit, which we performed at various downtown spaces in the ’80s.  Jay Geary played Sergeant Groggins, and I portrayed Eddie’s assistant, thus giving Eddie two clueless adults to deal with.

These earrings were made at the request of Dr. Mamie Caton.  I photocopied my original color drawings onto acetate, then cut them out.  A pinhole was made in the tab, and the appropriate earring technology inserted there.

I played a bit part as a character called “Lute Guy” on the eighth episode of the TV show Ed. This was back in 2000; the episode was called “The Whole Truth.” I guess it’s still airing somewhere, as I get occasional residual checks.

The Exiled Files of Eddie Gray

September 26th, 2011 · No Comments

George Kuchar’s 1997 video, The Exiled Files of Eddie Gray, was somewhat of a return to his earlier film, The Corruption of the Damned. Larry Leibowitz and Floraine Conners were reunited onscreen; and John Keel, who had played a bit part, was interviewed in his apartment.  I portrayed a Keel expert in an interstitial segment […]
