Here you will (eventually) find links of great variety
(eventually). Not unlike the Reading page, the following includes links
and commentary (and in some cases, disclaimers) about their content.
Theology & related links
Brilliant satire. Dad's interruptions ["utter
disregard"] are the best.
Clever, creative, visually
arresting, intellectually stimulating, cranially rotating. Check
out the Graphic
Design page. Also the photography page, especially the Pittsburgh
Zoo photo album.
It's good to know how much time you have left.
for the World RPS. This sport is underrated. Where are the big-name
Me Cool Shit
of off-beat, bizarre, activistic, artistic, timely and surreal stuff
from all around the web. Interviews, artists, designers, musicians,
innovative design. It's conceptually dense and thoughtful, sophisticated
in its design and presentation. The content may be considered objectionable
am better than your kids
The author of this site points out that
he can draw better and spell better than your kids. Therefore,
he feels qualified to critique your kids' drawings on a scale
from A to F. Make sure you click on the link to page 2 as well.
The links below include art sites that are useful references and artists
that I consider to be influential, innovative, and inspirational. I
admire them for various reasons -- style, technique, imagination --
In some cases, the links may contain racy, possibly objectionable material.
These might be indicated by an asterisk. They might not, depending on
whether or not I got off my lazy tuchus to actually re-visit the site
to see if there was any objectionable material.
Comprehensive resource for everything pertaining to art. Search
by artist name, title of work, or by museum. You can also search
for specific art movements and learn about the artists who contributed
I respect property rights and I think graffiti is vandalism,
the disrespect and destruction of personal property. That said,
some of the work on this site are too good to be ignored. You can

Sci-Fi and Fantasy Worlds of Steve Thomas
Talented and imaginative sci-fi fantasy artist whom I'm proud to
call my friend. He has been the source of much inspiration. My favorites
One of my all-time favorites. Not only does he have excellent
drawing skills, but his imagination and sense of composition and
design are phenomenal as well.
Illustrator and graphic designer from France. Fantastic website;
wonderful Flash animation and design; bizarre humans and humanoids;
great colors. He does it all, too. Painting, screenprinting, graphics,
custom work (skateboards, knickers, shoes, dolls), and he's a little
MARTIN AND PALOMA MUÑOZ
Wickedly different approach to snow globes. Here's the promo blurb
from coolhunting.com: "The quaint winter scenes often seen
inside traditional snow globes turn deliciously bizarre and sinister
in the hands of Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz. Known for
their highly-detailed dioramas of tiny figures exiled in frozen
landscapes, past creations by artists Martin and Muñoz have
included a horse walking away as a man hangs from a tree, and a
man dangling a baby over an open well."
Some of these paintings remind me of jellyfish.
The following still need banners/icons to accompany
them. Some still need descriptions and stuff. But they're great links,
in my opinions, for reasons you may be able to guess once you've visited
Fantasy artist/painter. Magic cards and all that. Unique impressionistic
handling of color and texture. There is a definite evolution in his
work. I hate photorealism, but I love photoimpressionism. He has a
good feel for monsters, but the compositions are not as strong. Favorites
include: Gravespawn Sovereign, Dross Golem, 4 Nims, Mass Hysteria,
Conceptually bizarre. Muted palette. "Wasted time" has some of most
intriguing photographs I've ever seen.
He has illustrated for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal,
Esquire, Forbes, New York Magazine, Fast Company SmartMoney, Barron's,
Time Warner Publications, Mens' Journal and many others,
and for good reason. He's really really good.
Illustrator of children's books. His crow rocks. On his books page,
you can click on a book cover to see an enlarged version. The first
few will show you published pieces and sketches, side by side. Click
on all the links. There are different illustrations on each page.
Unique vision of humanity. Warts and all. Lots of teeth. A plethora
of complexions. Not for general consumption
Terrific style, superb monsters, brilliant compositions, some pointilism,
disturbing and eerily wonderful animations. This site inspires me
Flash work here.
To me, sketches and doodles reveal more about an artist's talent
and way of thinking that do his or her finished work. Here are some
of my favorites:
Sketch book is terrific.
This list is reserved for only the very best monster artists. This will
eventually become its own page. If you want to get on my list, create
monsters and create them well. If your monsters suck, you can't get
on my list. You might not give a rip. I don't give a rip that you don't
give rip. If you do monsters well, e-mail
me the link to your site. If I agree that you do them well, I'll
link to your site. If you do not do them well, you will receive a form-letter
response so as not to hurt your feelings.
Great skull art

(tgfOnline.org). Lots of biblical studies and papers. Bible
conference notes are available and audio lectures can be ordered.
It is a publicly available source of writings that I can wholeheartedly
recommend as representing my worldview and theology.
THE BODIES HIT THE FLOOR (from YouTube). Benny Hinn
and the pathology of religious self-deception are powerfully demonstrated
on this YouTube compilation. Notice how the crowds are not unlike
the hypnosis demonstrations we've all seen on college campuses.
