So, I suck and I didn't renew rocket-taco.com this year. Maybe it will happen eventually.

My apologies for all the red x's you're probably about to see. It's still a fairly decent archive of my art crap, and I'll probably continue to update it just as sporadically as before.


A Whale of a What?!

I really like this one.

Not as good.

A Watercolor

Two Recent Ones & One That's Kinda Old

"Mittens the Adventure Cat Escapes Just in Time"

"Jesus Always Wins at Bingo (or so I'm told)"

"Jesus Helped Me Beat Anorexia"


A Quick One for the Holidays

I'm choosing not to celebrate Thanksgiving this year. For Christmas, I want a brand new set of drawing pens 'cause mine totally suck (and it shows.)

Something Different

I'm at that age. Most of my friends have babies. My best friend (since 6th grade) is due in January. In high school (before widespread social networking) we promised each other that, if we had a baby by the time the reunion came 'round, we'd tell everybody that it was our love child and we named it French Fry. People thought we were lesbians, but now we're both married (to dudes!) So I made a cool mobile for baby French Fry.

Here's one where it isn't moving in a captivating (and possibly seizure inducing) manner. I know it doesn't look very complicated, but mobiles are hard work! You have to get them to balance, and in addition to that, you have to be absolutely sure that it's safe enough to hang over a crib. All I'm sayin' is that it better be, because I tried really hard.

No, I will not be making another one. Not unless I have a baby.

Detailed Step-by-Step Instructions I wrote when people started asking me if I'd make one for their kid...Collapse )

Here's the card I made to go with it:

The inside said something like, "Having a baby isn't always sunshine and rainbows, but it's worth it." (Or so I've heard from everybody who isn't a stand-up comedian.)

Animals That Don't Actually Exist

"If Napoleon Dynamite learned Photoshop."
I could have done a better job at making it look more realistic, but I didn't care enough.

The first time I saw the Grateful Dead bears, their collar-things reminded me of Kermit the Frog. I'm pretty sure there aren't any species of frogs or bears that have collars like that.
Guess which type of person I am.

When I was a teenager, my parents went to Florida and they brought me two "funny" magnets. Both were bright orange with a dirty black type. One was a fat joke, and the other said, "People are just warm furniture for cats." It was supposed to be funny, but it wasn't until years later that I remembered it and realized how depressing it actually is when you think about it. People are just warm furniture for cats (and nothing else.) Ugh.

As a matter of fact, you do. It's probably your favorite hobby.

And here's one of our actual cat. Yes, he only has one eye, and he was like that when my husband got him. Yes, he smells like dookie. Actually, he smells worse. I don't even think that Lisa Kudrow would want him.

Cheezburger.com - Totally Looks Like

Here are some photoshop comparisons I posted on cheezburger.com (yeah, they have more than lolcats now.) If you like 'em, you can click on each one to vote for it. There will be 5 cheeseburgers over the image. Clicking the first one means it sucks, but clicking cheeseburger #5 means that you totally like it. I know it isn't exactly art, but I'm trying to make that slow crawl towards internet fame and I'd appreciate your help!

David Bowie Totally Looks Like Farrah Fawcett

Elijah Wood Totally Looks Like Malibu Ken
I was going to use a younger version of Elijah Wood and the very first Ken, but then I realized that, as they both got older (well, if Ken could get older) they still looked alike. This wasn't easy because Elijah Wood has an "indie face," meaning he rarely smiles like a plastic doll. Good for him.

And my favorite so far:

E.T. Totally Looks Like Nikola Tesla

Larger version (even better) is here: http://www.rocket-taco.com/images/funny/e-tesla2.jpg

Their eyes and the position of their hand are pretty obvious. Now look at their foreheads, and then at their mouths. Wow, right?

Current Events:

I made these very quickly, before the hurricane officially made landfall. Now you can make t-shirts!

Jessica Albatross

I made this photoshop, but it was my husband who came up with the idea. That's teamwork!


I am working on a layout for the website that won't suck so much. I really don't like the current one.

I know I keep saying that, but I've actually drawn the buttons and uploaded them. Now I just have to figure out how to change it without ruining everything.

Superhero Crossovers

Batmanatee! Been working on this one a long time and I just can't get it right. It's still pretty cool, I guess.

Wimpy vs. Hulk

Fighting crime one day at a time.

David Bowtie

I'd like to thank typos and MS Paint for this one.

You can help it rise to internet fame by voting here: http://cheezburger.com/View/4932783360

This drawing is based on a true story. With no formal training, sailing is very difficult.
