You're kidding me, right?

My drawing here may strike you as a humorous piece of art but apparently to the post office it is offensive. I have this art in my Zazzle shop and submitted it for postage and this is their response:

The details of the product being removed are listed below:

•    Product Title: No cats on beach postage
•    Product Type: Postage
•    Product ID: 172580117471961236

•    Result: Not Approved
•    Policy Violations:

o    Design incorporates material the primary purpose of which is to advocate or protest any particular religious, social, political, legal or moral agenda of any person or entity.

They go on to apologize, blah, blah, blah. My primary purpose was to create a funny piece of art and I wasn't advocating or protesting anything. No cat that I know, and I know quite a few, have taken offense at my drawing. In fact my cat even posed for the picture. The card and postcard are still available.

Thanks for listening.

The Rat Race painting

I had gone to Home Depot recently and had some hardboard cut into 8"x10"(they are closer to 7.75x10)  pieces which I then primed. I have finished painting one of them, it's titled 'The Rat Race' and is available now on eBay (clicking the picture will take you there).

The Rat Race

Well I am off, thanks for stopping by.

Windsurfing Rat

My latest drawing features a windsurfing rat. He sure is enjoying his new hobby.

The size of this art is 4"x8" and it's done on Canson paper. Click on the picture to go to the eBay auction.

Today I am hoping to finish up a painting on hardboard. I had started it and then decided to change it when it just wasn't to my liking.

Now that the painting has a new direction I feel much better about it, now I just have to hope the paint is cooperative.

Well I better get cracking if I want to finish all the things I hope to finish today.

Thanks for stopping by!

New Art and Job Hunt

First up is Beer and Butts featuring one of my ratties and a few of his vices, which everyone needs now and then.

Another new art is a surfer, who feels at his best when riding the waves.

Clicking on the pictures will bring you to the eBay auction where you can read the story.

I am currently looking for a job in northern NJ in case you have need of an artist! But doesn't even have to be art related.

Thanks for stopping by.

My newest drawing is a 2x8 inch panoramic of seven rats frolicking at the beach which is for sale now on eBay. Clicking the picture will take you there. I plan to do more of these.

I have been adding more items to my Zazzle and Etsy stores too! See links to the right to visit.

Hope you all have a happy and safe 4th of July and remember our soldiers.

Thanks for visiting.
