| I am the ancient technologies of MYSELF!|
|One of my most iconic works of art! The Richard Scarry nightmare! But it was still featured in CONAN NYC in 2011!|
There is a video on CNN that features my art piece! CHECK IT OUT!

"Oh...it looks good!!!"
This was one I thought I put up in my DeviantArt, but never put it up until years later! NOW IN ALL OF IT'S UNADULTERATED GLORY!!
I was doing a short comic book series called THE MASQUE OF 10000 DEATHS! It was a series about this mysterious mask called “THE MASQUE”!
Well the cover itself had these evil spirits coming out of the Masque. Earth spirits and demonic entity spirits! Memories of the Masque that absorb into the minds of those who wear it! THE MASQUE was sort of this foray into fantasy and horror!
It was a fun series. REALLY EXPIRIMENTAL!!!
The series got discontinued for lack of money and time. [Who knows what Issue 3 would have been!?But I had some ideas for it way back when!] Plus, the printer known as Ka-Blam, they were hounding me for tax returns I never had to begin with! That was right after the step-lady passed away!
Yeah, after awhile! It gets to be revolting that you do all of this hard work for literally MONTHS on end to make a good 40 page comic book! You front the money for the shows and every other damned thing! And then THE OPPERTUNISTS still try to make a quick buck off of you! Even when you are prolonging true artistic visions to the world!
And then out of the blue....THE TAX PEOPLE COME OUT OF THE WOODWORKS!!! It's just fucking insane, really!! I had enough of the fucking bill collectors back then! AND STILL DO NOW!
Well, at least THE ART itself lives onward in the matrixes of the internets!! This was a 2012 art piece! Back when I made a return to Chicago Wizard World in 2012, living off of McDonalds breakfast meals, costly hotel rooms I almost didn't get into and lack of sleep in the Chicago area! I felt like the art was more cohesive then!
I was pretty proud of this cover! Along with the other art I was doing at the time for THE MASQUE OF 10000 DEATHS!!
Anyway!! I HOPE YOU LIKE THIS ART!!!
[Added to my DeviantArt on the 4th of July, 2015!]
Another art piece on my TO DO LIST!! [That is now breathed of life!! THANK GOODNESS!!]
This is a piece I had wanted to do for literally MONTHS!! Perhaps even YEARS!!!
This is really THE OPTICAL ILLUSION OF CONAN O'BRIEN!! Like Conan tells a joke on stage, and somehow, Andy Richter somehow heckles him LIKE A BUG!! [Or a well displaced fly!]
But then, Conan is trying not to laugh! But laughs anyway!!
But on another level....This art is a mental mind-trip! Like you are staring into Conan's third-eye being, and just giving into the hallucinations!
This art is a total optical illusion! It might give some people headaches, I don't know?! But the full length of this art took me 3 days to do, from drawing and inking to the final coloring! [Which the coloring in itself took me 2 days in total, because it was such an intricate and involved art piece.]
Well, anyway....I HOPE YOU LIKE THIS ART THAT I SOILED AND TOILED OVER!!
It was a rather meticulous one to do. Anyway, I hope you like this one!!
TEAM COCO LINK: teamcoco.com/moca/gallery/digi…
A very thought-provoking art piece for me!
This is about several things, really! The inner mysteries CRYSTAL SKULLS and ASTROLOGICAL STAR CHARTS OF ALIEN GREYS and ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS! [Things and concepts that were around long before you or I!]
Even about ancient technologies buried underneath time, rust and dirt that should NOT even exist. And wormhole vortices to other dimensions and galaxies. [As you can see with the sun-design in the middle of the art piece.]
Lots of rust and blood. Copper, brass, silver and gold! Things you'd use to channel in magnetic energy and all of that! [AKA: The Antikythera Mechanisms and The Baghdad Battery!]
A painstaking art piece for me to do in 2015! It has so many meanings on so many dimensional levels!
It's like an “outsider within” art piece for me! As only I can do it! And it took me 4 1/2 days to do from start to finish!
Anyway, I do hope you like this art! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
MORE UNDISCOVERED ART I HAD UNEARTHED IN 2015!!
20 years behind from when I released the previous EL BUHO art with ANTARTIC PRESS! [Because I had discovered another OWL BASED art piece that I did, other then El Buho's Art Therapy!]
This was some art I did in 1991 in a high school art class!! I had an assignment to draw a animal! ANY ANIMAL! And to change the color of the animal!
So I did a close-up show of AN OWL!! And it did the art in sort of A BLOOD RED THEME!!
It's survived the tests of time!! CAUSE I STILL HAVE THIS ART PIECE!!!
Well, anyway....I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!!
I was seeing if I had any of my older ANTARTIC PRESS – GOLD DIGGER ANNUAL or GOLD DIGGER SWIMSUIT art still in existence! [Though I can't tell you what publication it was in!? You'd just have to search for it in well-hidden back issues of comic books somewhere!]
And I found this one I did from 2011! And I haven't put it online anywhere till March of 2015! Probably inspired by when I was in art therapy for 4 months. And I was a volunteer assistant at the Kansas City Free Medical Clinic! They had strange people in the art therapy class who could barely draw stick figures! So this is what the art is all about for me!
HIGH-STRUNG VAGABONDS WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA AND ALL OF THAT!!
I was scouring issues of GOLD DIGGER SOURCEBOOKS to do characters from Fred Perry's rampant imaginations for several days straight!! Then one day, I found this obscure character named EL BUHO! [Which in Spanish, roughly translates into THE OWL!]
So El Buho is taking an art therapy course in 2011! BAD SPANISH ACCENTS AND EVERYTHING!! It seemed mildly amusing to me at the time! CAUSE INSIDE OF ME, I TOTALLY GOT IT!!
So I putted involuntary tributes to THE MAXX, which was one of the first comics i'd gotten published in during the earlier 1990s!
And El Buho is drawing on a melon-thing with markers and cheap-ass pastels provided for him in art therapy class! And expressing his rough emotions! RUDIMENTARY ART SKILLS FROM THE BOTTOM FEEDERS, I SUPPOSE!? Heh!
I can't remember if this was published in black and white or color!? Cause Antarctic Press was always on strange publishing budgets! But I know it got published in one of the latter annuals and/or the swimsuit comics!!
Anyway....I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!!
So yeah....I HAD FUN WITH THIS ONE DAY!! One day I was in my Twitter, and I remembered how much I has SUFFERED doing the arts in my time! Even now, I am basically BLACKLISTED from the so-called “Bartle Hall Comic Shows” in the Kansas City area! Which is both hurtful and ridiculous for me anyway! Seeing as how i'd been in well over 100+ publications anyway! WHICH INCLUDES ACTUAL COMIC BOOKS!!
[The stigmas have GOT TO FREAKING STOP about my PTSD! Geeze!]
Then one day! I saw this TWITTER HASHTAG that was called #ThingsPeopleSayToArtists! IT WAS THE BEST HASHTAG IN A TWITTER I HAD SEEN IN QUITE A LONG TIME!! It was so brilliant and amazing, I just had to really run with it all!! And it made me A HERO to those who don't get recognized in the art....Cause chances are, THEY TOTALLY WENT THROUGH IT AS WELL!!
They were so TERRIBLY AMUSING to post up online for me in my TWITTER!! I posted something like 20 ACTUAL RESPONSES IN 2 HOURS TIME!! [So here they are....IN IT'S ENTIRETY!! The responses I posted to THINGS PEOPLE SAY TO ARTISTS!!!] All of the fickle things you hear being and actually LIVING in the true arts nowadays in the 21st century! But the ones who don't DRAW OR WRITE OR CREATE don't tend to see it the same way as a visionary artist and/or writer!
ENJOY THESE!! They are pretty damned hilarious and even deadpan humorous!

OK! ONE MORE! "Blacklisting!? IN THE ARTS!? I thought you could buy a CARBON BLACK ACRYLIC PAINT at Michael's!!" - #ThingsPeopleSayToArtists
And that's basically it!! 20 whimsical, funny and SHARP responses in my own little ART WORLD!! The sometimes fickle and plastic art works I am forced to endure in my lifetime!
BUT THEY could ALL BE TOTALLY TRUE!! Cause they are!! HEH!!
I HOPE YOU LIKE ALL OF THESE OR EVEN ONE OR TWO!!
