LA times


LA was nothing short of phenomenal. Thanks to everyone for making it such a excellent experience. I met a ton of supertalents that inspire me everyday.

Last week I also had the opportunity to participate in an art show for Family Guy in Manhattan. The original title was “Keeblerquest” but I think due to copyrights “Cookiequest” was used instead. The painting is pretty reminiscent of one my past pieces, but somehow it felt right. Traditional work is always intimidating but fun to work with. This was the biggest gouache piece I’d ever worked on.

Anyhow, enough blabbing from me. I got a pile of stuff to work on now.

    glad you had a good time…things are looking up for good ol’ trussell…which is aboot time. Great piece by the way.

    That looks pretty cool. Sort of reminds me of Ren and Stimpy but it looks like Family Guy to be sure. That brings up an interesting point. Your previous work like War Photographer and other seem to have an action sci-fi element do you think you’d prefer to work on projects like that or would you like to do comedy? For my money some of the best blendings of comedy and action are The Venture Bros. more of a comedy and Avatar: The Last Airbender which has some great action sequences.

    Excellent painting Joel. Mr. Peabody meets the Family Guy. I really like this a lot.

    Nice piece, but I’d like it even more without outlines…

    Thanks you, good friends from the internet!

    Gene- Thanks, man. Things are indeed looking up at the moment, but I know the drill. I’d better buckle up for the big crash, eh? Hope all is well up your way.

    toliverchap- That’s a good question. I’ve enjoyed trying different genres lately, but I think I’ll always inject some type of humor into whatever I’m doing. A dash of laughs and a dash of danger seems to be a good mix for me. That could all change with the wind though I suppose. I enjoy experimenting more than anything. Oh… and I agree wholehearted about the fine Venture Bros series. I haven’t checked out Avatar yet, but it’s immediately going on the list due to your recommendation.

    George- Ha! Would that be Sherman on the stump all whiskered and overweight, or is that him watering the shrubs? I’m a huge Ward fan so I’m glad it somehow conjures up such a comparison.

    Thorsten- In retrospect, you’re completely right. I got nervous and relied on the ol’ trusty outlines. I’ve just been invited to participate in another NY gallery showing so I’m taking your advice to heart on the new piece, sir. Good call!

    Steve- My pleasure, sir. I first thought about bringing a houseplant for your new place, but I think I made the best decision in the end.

    Warren- Thanks for the kind words, man. The Frederator crew have been super generous to me. Glad you dig the piece!

    Hey, I got a tshirt for christmas from Hot Topic with this painting on the front and stewie on the top of the back, makes for a cool shirt. I hope it was licensed properly :) You have some cool art, I would love to see more family guy pieces.

    Nice! I haven’t seen them. Fox did indeed buy the piece and licensing rights so everything’s on the goodfoot. Glad you liked the shirt and thanks for swinging by the dumpster here.

    Hey Great Blog. As much as Family guy used to rock in the first few seasons, it is getting down every season with same stale comedy and jokes. IMO Souht Park and SImpsons are also going down the hill.

    Anyway for those who can not download Family guy from torrents and are looking for all Seasons of Family guy, they can download it from here -

    Hope this helps others.
