Sailing the Crazy Bed Boat Through Craziness. (Which is pretty crazy) by 

This is among the oldest things I’ve uploaded onto the site and because of that it looks a whole heck of a lot different than a lot of the work I’m doing these days. Also because of that there are some things I like about it, and a lot of things I don’t.

What’s it all about?

I dunno.

A kid, a shipwreck, an octopus, a bed, a turtle, a deserted island, a puppy, a weird muppet looking thing…

Maybe it’s a direct result of the head injury I had as a young man?

    OK did your momma drop you on your head Steven!..LOLOL just kidding.. I think it is wonderful and colorful and should be about a boy and his Sea adventures! Love it!

  • Actually I had a bicycle accident as a kid that ripped open my head and required nothing short of about 400 stitches. WEE-HOO!! Glad you like the piece Charlotte! ;)

    nice. love the turtle in the corner. reminds me of some of the crazy stuff lewis carroll came up with :) nice job on the clouds as well

  • Funny that you would mention the clouds because the clouds and the ocean are two of the things I absolutely hate about this piece. ;)

    Bedknobs and Broomsticks with a Steven twist = ) Love it!

  • That’s how I tried to sell my remake of Bedknobs and Broomsticks to Miramax. Their response was, “Who’s Steven?” ;) Okay, that was a lie, but it was funny.

    This looks fun and adventurous. I wonder if you were to ask a bunch of kids to tell what they thought it was about? Could get some really interesting stories :)

  • There is a really fantastic kids book called “The Mysteries of Harris Burdick” that sort of did that. Check it out if you’ve never seen it.
