Smokin' Joe's

My napkin @ Smokin' Joe's, 2001 E Carson St, Pittsburgh PA.

And so as not to embarrass those with me, the photo was shot behind closed doors.

iFrank, the color version

For those of you who aren't following The Rots on Facebook, here's the full-color version of iFrank. I painted him in Painter and finished him off in Photoshop. I originally finished him as a parody of the iPod commercials.

The background is manipulated from a photo I took of a wall at Harpers Ferry, WV. I took tons of texture photos (mostly walls) when we visited there a few years ago. They have a lot of old, old buildings that just beg you to take their picture. I use those textures often.

While we were there, I also Rotted the Secret Six Tavern. Not one of my better ones; I guess my mind was on getting back to those darn walls.

Mr. Picassohead!

Looks like today is the anniversary of the demise of Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso, but better known to those of us without all day to say his name as Pablo Picasso. To celebrate (?), you can make your own Picasso on the Web site Mr. Picassohead. Very addictive...

Here's mine. He's called Bewildered Man.

Here's a new Rots image with a take on the commercial for that really popular little white electronic device. I'm planning on doing a color version sometime in the near future.

If you want to download him and use him somewhere, he's yours! All I ask is that you give me credit with a link (, and let me know where you've used him!
