“On November 13, Felix Unger was asked to remove himself from his place of residence. That request came from his wife. Deep down, he knew she was right, but he also knew that someday, he would return to her. With nowhere else to go, he appeared at the home of his childhood friend, Oscar Madison. Several years earlier, Madison’s wife had thrown him out, requesting that he never return. Can two divorced men share an apartment without driving each other crazy?”

I grew up watching reruns of “The Odd Couple.” Really didn’t pay too much attention at the time. Although I do remember the chemistry of putting opposed personalities together. In real life, combining roommates who are polar opposites would spell disaster. Yet for television it was comedy gold.

Actor Jack Klugman, who portrayed the proto-type slob Oscar Madison, passed away recently. He died Christmas Eve, December 24th, 2012. Hearing about his death made me curious about watching The Odd Couple again. So on New Year’s Day I watched the marathon on TV. Finally I got my money’s worth subscribing to basic cable. It was then I realized what a great show The Odd Couple actually was. Based on the play and film written by playwright Neil Simon, it showed the drastic difference between classic programing and today’s reality show fare.

Along with Klugman was actor Tony Randall. Randall portrayed Felix Unger, the personification of O.C.D. During it’s original broadcast supposedly the show never cracked the top ten in the ratings. Yet years later The Odd Couple is now considered classic television. One of the best Odd Couple episodes was “My Strife in Court.” Originally broadcast on February 16, 1973, Felix ends up in court when he gets falsely accused of scalping Broadway theater tickets. ‘Cause after all…when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me.

Sadly Tony Randall is also no longer with us. He passed away May 17, 2004. So while maybe Klugman and Randall are performing skits in the sitcom afterlife, I did this pen and ink sketch.

Enjoy my fan art of The Odd Couple.

In case you’re getting tired of everything cat related, no need to worry. I got around to finishing this illustration started during the late summer of either 2011 or 2012. Completed this slight ‘steampunk’ watercolor piece this morning.

(The scan doesn’t give this justice. You can see the depth, along with details of this illustration much better in person.)

Cats.

I’ve always been a cat person. Never understood why others didn’t like cats so much. Nowadays I use that as a people filter of sorts. If you don’t like or trust cats, well then you ain’t no friend of mine.

Anyway…here’s my forte into the whole silly internet meme craze. The same craze that’s been clogging up Facebook for sometime.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Since I did a portrait of ‘Grumpy Cat’ a.k.a Tartar Sauce…maybe I should also do one for Colonel Meow.

Colonel Meow is another of those LOLcats that’s become an internet sensation. On his popular Facebook page he has 131,681 ‘likes’ alone. Loyal fans are referred by the Colonel as ‘minions.’ He spends his days sipping scotch and disliking birds. Hopefully the Colonel would approve of this watercolor illustration.
