Nitrozac's latest painting... a tiny Tesla!
Nitrozac has a new painting up on eBay, and it's very nice indeed. It's a portrait of Nikola Tesla, painted on a tiny stretched canvas and includes the wooden easel to display it on. And unlike the new Tesla Model 3, you won't have to wait 18 months for it, it will ship this week! :-D
Check it out, the auction ends soon!

Deep Fried Pudge is an ass this month. ;-)
My pal Stroganoff is the creator of the cartoon Deep Fried Pudge, and she is just wrapping up a silly month of butt-related puns. I did an episode for her, featuring my favorite silent movie star... check it out here!

Full Moon, a painting by Nitrozac
Nitrozac here, just letting you know about my new painting that's up for auction.
I think you will love this painting. Like the Moon, its palette is limited, but there is a richness and lushness to the paint that depicts its surface. And like the Moon it only reveals its secrets when looking at it closer up. From far away this painting looks like the Moon does when viewing from our planet with the naked eye. Closer up and it's like viewing our friend through a telescope.
Best of luck to all bidders, and to the winner, I know you will adore this painting as much as I do. It was an absolute pleasure to paint and to be honest, it will be very hard to part with!
