Sikh Guru with Beard and Bejeweled Turban

© Mulga 2011, Sikh Guru, Ink on Paper, 20 x 35 cm

A Poem About My Sikh Guru Drawing

Come with me
I’m a Sikh Guru
You will see
I don’t wear a shoe

I stoke my beard
In a pose of thought
Sometimes I’m jeered
I’ve never been caught

Like David Blaine
I will mesmerize
With feats of wonder
You won’t believe your eyes

My turban is sweet
It protects my brain
Me jewels are neat
I am not vain

My eyes will pierce
Into your soul
With lazer beams
I turn bronze to gold

See you next time

Captain Monkey Pants

Mulga, Captain Monkey Pants, Ink on Paper, 26 x 36 cm

An Ode to Captain Monkey Pants
This man I can recommend
You will want him as your friend
This man has a beard
This man is weird
He’s a captain with a pipe
He likes his bananas ripe
His hat is cool and he pity’s the fool
Who aint seen the world and when he rides a wave
He likes that cave when it’s perfectly curled
He travels the world in his ship with his crew and cat
He once saved a monkey king who was in a flap
The monkey king gave him a gift
As a reward for the lift
It was a pair of pants
They were magical
They were fantastical
They did not contain ants
They were full of power
And they bloomed like a flower
When the time was right
They helped solve any plight
The story of Captain Monkey Pants is truly amazing
He’s everyone’s favourite captain who’s a little crazy

Bombastic Beanie Man

Bombastic Beanie Man

Hello, look at me I’m the beanie man
I wear a beanie like only I can


Actually my name is Wally
And I push a trolley
Full of all my junk
It’s easier to push than a trunk


I sleep in the day 
And wander at night
It makes it less likely 
I’ll be stabbed by a knife


I got no shoes 
And I got the blues
I play the banjo 
And I love to snooze


I once walked five days straight
And saw an Indian rat snake
I did a double take and then ate a steak
But it was all a dream I realized when I did awake


My eyes will pierce you like a dagger
And my banjo will make you dance like Jagger


My coat is fantastic 
And my songs are bombastic
Some say I’m an iconoclastic 
Others say I’m just enthusiastic


I’m a mystery man
See me once
And you’ll never see me again
I am the super bombastic beanie man

See you next time

The One Armed Sushi Chef otherwise known as the Beard Man Wearing Headband with Anchor on it

The One Armed Sushi Chef

He has a beard
And a headband too
His anchor is geared
For wowing you

He’s a sushi chef
Of the highest order
His name is Jeff
He abhors disorder

He’s the fastest slicer
In the land
He doesn’t use a ricer
He has one hand

He’s an Iron Chef
On that SBS cooking show
He killed the ref
With one blow

The decision was wrong
Or so he thought
And because he didn’t win
He killed the lot

You’ll find him now
In his little sushi shop
Forget to pay the bill
And you’ll get the chop

See you next time

El Capitan rides the waves again

This is a drawing I completed for El Capitan surfing boards. They will prepare for you the most magical surfing board you can imagine.

This is a poem I completed just because…

El Capitan
He is an old sea dog and he surfs a log
He smokes a pipe and doesn’t own a dog
On the high seas of life he stays outta strife
Except when he hunts for treasure and fights with a knife
A life long sailor like this here man
Prefers the raging ocean waters over any dry land
He’s been here and there and seen this and that
He’ll stare you down while he wears his hat
He’s the El Capitano and he sings soprano
He likes the rum and he’s got bravado

The end

See you next time – Mulga

Zombie Getting Kicked in the Goonies

This is the first highlighter zombie I drew.
He doesn’t look to happy.
It looks like he just took a swift one to the goonies.
Poor zombie fella!
Here’s a poem about his predicament.

An ode to the goonie kicked zombie

Getting kicked in the goonies aint much fun
Even when your a zombie on the run
The pain can make a tough zombie cry
He’ll double over in pain and want to die
He knows that feeling because he’s the undead
Or maybe not if there’s no brains left in his head

See you next time.

Zombie with Mo-Hawk

Here’s a flouro zombie. He was made with highlighter and artline felt tip pen.
He has a mo-hawk and he is looking out of frame at something of which i am not sure.
It seems to be of interest to this particular zombie as he seems to be going ‘oooh’ or maybe even whistling.
Maybe he saw a hot zombie babe and he is performing the classic fox whistle.
See you next time.

Six Round Zombie Heads

This is a painting of six round zombie heads.
They are round like an orange or a bowling ball.
Some are happy, some are sad, some are tired and some are bad,
some are whistling and some are poking their tongue out and one of them has a mo-hawk.
Their teeth are sharp and i wouldn’t like to meet them in the dark.
See you next time.

Green and Pink Stripey Frog

Here’s a frog.
I drew him with highlighter and art-line felt tip pen.
He has a green torso and pink legs, arms, feet, hands and eye.
He’s got lots of stripes and patterns on him.
Here’s an acrostic poem:

Fun. Frogs must have heaps of fun because they are really good at jumping. Pearl has lots of fun jumping and she can’t even jump very high. Imagine if you could jump as good as a frog. You would be like some kind of super hero. Maybe you would be called the Frog-Man.
Running. Frog’s can’t run but this is compensated by their excellent jumping ability. See above.
Only male frogs can croak. Some frogs can whistle and some can chirp like a bird.
Goliath Frog. This type of frog is the biggest frog in the world and can grow up to 3 feet long when stretched out. See a pic here.
See you next time.

Stripes of a colour stick together

This is a painting on canvas with acrylic paint and posca.
There are nine stripes under-girding this piece and 9 eye balls looking on in an indifferent gaze.
They are varied in colour.
I submitted this to Illustration Friday’s current topic of “Stripes”.
See you next time.

The Scary Hairy Frogman

When i look at the Scary Hairy Frogman so many many questions arise, such as:
-why is the Frogman hairy? Typically frogs are hairless creatures. Is this some new mutant breed of creature, half frog and half hairy man?
-why does a Frogman need an umbrella. Frog’s love the water and often live in its cool embrace? Perhaps he is sheltering from the ozone hole.
-why does a Frogman wear dress shoes? Frog’s are typically casual creatures, even Kermit who hosted his own television show didn’t wear shoes much less shoes as stylish as the Scary Hairy Frogman. Perhaps he is a frequenter of dancing clubs, we do not know.
-why is one of his arms much longer than the other? Is this a birth defect or just bad penmanship or even a mutation due to his frequent use of aforementioned umbrella.
-why are his nipples x’s. This is odd and we do not have the time allocated to explore this issue further.
-when i look at his mouth i wonder if he whistling or going in for a kiss or going ooooh!
I have adequately demonstrated there are many questions unanswered. If you are able to answer any questions please contact me immediately. If you remain curious i advise you to subscribe to my blog by inserting your email address into the top left corner of this page. All will be revealed in due course.
Long live the Scary Hairy Frogman!

Shark

Here’s a little drawing of a shark i did. He is made up of a few different kinds of patterns.
Here is a poem about sharks in acrostic style.

Sharks are the kings of the sea.
Huge.Sharks can get pretty huge. A case in point is the 470kg, 3.8 metre tiger shark which was caught 500 metres off Main beach, Gold Coast in Queensland on Thursday 13 October 2011.
Awesome predators. They are heaps good at eating stuff. They are king of the food chain in the ocean. They are like the lions of the sea.
Running is not what sharks are good at. They are better at swimming. A Mako shark can swim 96 kilometres per hour.
Kebabs. Sharks like to eat kebabs, and people.
Swell shark, which lives in New Zealand barks like a dog. Woof woof!

See you next time.

New Art By Mulga – Nordic Warlord

Some pics of the Nordic Warlord in progress below.

Here is a new artwork i painted with posca pens on cardboard.
He is a viking but i like to think of him as a Nordic warlord.
Viking’s have a reputation of being pretty ferocious but this viking dude looks pretty mellow, even Zen like.
He appears to be a pretty tough dude but he has pig tails, it’s kind of a contradiction.
He has a wicked mean beard and you can imagine all the sorts of food he gets stuck in there after a massive feast back at the village after coming back from a raid from over the other side of the ocean.
There’s probably a boar drumstick hidden in there somewhere.

Cosmic Egg Head Man

Here is my latest art for your viewing pleasure.

Here is a poem I wrote inspired by the Cosmic Egg Head Man:

The boundaries of the mind
Can translate to the face
Take care what you think
Everything finds its place

Here is another little poem:

The cold winds of space
Is where you’ll see the face
Of the cosmic egghead man
And his master race

Zombie in Disguise

I drew this fluoro zombie so i could be apart of the weekly challenge on a website called illustration friday. Someone suggests a topic and then people do some art about the topic and then put it up on the website. This is my first submission and thought it would be a bit of fun. I’ve been in the mood for drawing fluoro zombies lately so i thought i would draw one with a little disguise on. My illustration shows that the disguises people wear can sometimes (or most times be pretty crappy). For example, who is this zombie fooling with that disguise, he’s a fluoro zombie for goodness sake, he would need a bag over his head to disguise his ugly melon. That being said, his disguise is not as crappy as superman’s. Taking your glasses off and brushing your hair is not a disguise. I dunno who he is fooling but i guess the locals in metropolis are pretty dopey. Unfortunately half way through my drawing i realised my error in using green paint. He looks like a crappy interpretation of a teenage mutant ninja turtle (TMNT). I call him Picasso.
