zdepski's Swimming Hole illustration for Corporal Punishment Series

The Swimming Hole
Some kids had above-ground... other kids had in-ground Pools. We had a hose!!
"Con Found the Doggon Thing Anyhow!! Oh Good Night!!" -- Dad's Tirade
Dad yelled at us to stop or we'd burn out the water pump.
So... We all got Impetigo from the Crap-filled creek.
The next year we got a YMCA pool membership.

Yep... it's all true. Part of my Corporal Punishment Series. Search the label to see more like it.

The Pantry

zdepski's illustration if the Pantry, frame one

My mom mistakenly told me she was claustrophobic. I waited until she went into the pantry.

I slammed the door. I tied a rope to the door knobs to lock her inside... Her shouts went from anger to panic... I let her out.

True story... I was a little bastard. I still think my rope around the door knobs was a stroke of genius.

Zdepski's comic page of Sargent Clark removing his glasses an going to bed Detail of comic page 10 TAPS by Rebecca Goldfield - Clark removing his glasses an going to bed

A couple of frames from last year's District Comic. From the Amazon blurb: "District Comics is a graphic anthology featuring lesser-known stories about Washington, DC, from its earliest days as a rustic settlement along the swampy banks of the Potomac to the modern-day metropolis. Spanning 1794–2009, District Comics stops along the way for a duel, a drink in the Senate's speakeasy, a look into the punk scene, and much more."

It was great fun to do, and I was included in a well reviewed project. Lots of great press on this one = A Washington Post top 10 pick for 2012.

zdepski's illustration of the Beatles Helter Skelter Helter Skelter - The Beatles

The Beatles bang out a few cuts from the White Album as the Green Mind-controlling Egg pulses below...
John is mesmerized.

This is an adjusted detail piece from my Charlie Manson poster. As seen here: Charlie Manson

I'm a bit overwhelmed with work, so I'm recycling some imagery for IF. Teaching classes after a full day's work is killer on the creativity bone.
