Cyril


"An unfortunate incident left Cyril a shadow of the man he once was. Though he wore his Purple Heart with pride, he secretly longed for his lost, true love, Ethel, who came to the conclusion that she could not love a man with zipper lips."

Frank


"Frank had it all together for his senior year photo at SCI. That year, he got his varsity letter, and was one of several big men on campus."

I can see it coming!


Hallowe'en, that is. This is another in my series of monster portraits, based on original characters I've created. These greytone portraits are intended to provide some contrast to the crazy, color versions of these monsters.

Poor guy! Looks like he's caught in the headlights. Over the years though, he does become comfortable in the spotlight, and goes on to a fabulous career in showbiz.

Just in case you missed it. This is what's been happening in the financial markets lately. Might take the Bull a little while to recover from this one.
