So, I’ve redesigned my page and am going to be hosting it myself from now on. Come visit me there at daveberns.com if you want to see my latest works (& I know you do).

Notes to Bean…

06/15/2010


I’ve begun creating a comic strip series of observation, advice and inspiration in celebration and contemplation of the little bun in my wife’s oven. I’m planning to have a few dozen of them by the time my Bean is born. Give a look, leave a note of your own to the little guy if you’d like, share it with any parents-to-be you might know of.

Public Angry!

BP also stands for Blood Pressure… coincidence? I think not!

When this image parodying the classic Public Enemy cover came to me, I had to create it.

I recently received a request from someone who’d found my previous termite illo, via a google search that landed her here, to license the image for their own needs.
Unfortunately it was created under a work-for-hire agreement, and I couldn’t just make a few bucks off of my previous efforts. Bummer. Back to the well I go… to revisit the concept with a new illustration, as I’m retaining ownership and just allowing limited usage for the new client, this time it’s mine, all mine!
So, if by chance, you’ve found this entry by a google search yourself, and want to use this piece for your business needs, too, give me a shout, maybe we can come to some sort of an agreement.
Thanks for visiting!

It’s an established fact that Conan O’Brien is a preferable talk show host to Jay Leno (one that apparently NBC execs are unaware of). After seeing literally hundreds of my fb friends sign up for the “I’m with COCO” club, it occurred to me that virtually ANY Coco would make a more compelling host than the whiny talking chin.
So, given that I have this moderately funny parody idea and nowhere to put it… I’m experimenting with a self-distribution model that also uses the whole grass-roots social media campaign. If it gives you a chuckle, link up to it, and pass it along to your friends. Maybe enough of them will order a print to make this experiment a success.
Peace!

PS: I hardly watch TV, but FYI, Jimmy Kimmel trumps Conan, Leno, Letterman, Fallon & Ferguson. That said even Kimmell is no Byron Allen!

Offering up some random stuff for sale from the archives… a few WWN spot illustrations, some life drawings, sketches and the ink art to the Marilyn Zombie piece… Provided some of these move, I’ll be adding a lot more to this shop in the coming weeks & months. Favorite me there!

I’m toying with the notion of illustrating zombified or horror-themed portraits of some other iconic dead stars and releasing as a portfolio set or art book.
