I'm often asked where I draw my inspiration from, or how I get my ideas, that sort of thing.  I'll tell you.  I steal them.  My one and only true inspiration came in the form of a thought-stealing machine, which I named "Kleptykins," and now abuse at every opportunity.  I use it so much that the power company sends thugs about once a week to tell me to knock it off.

This particular piece was stolen one night from Indiana Jones' Ambien-and-whiskey nightmares.  After this point in the dream, it got...  weird.

You'd think I'd use this magnificent machine to amass a collection of terrible secrets of powerful people, and be filthy rich from blackmail tributes.  I guess stealing all my ideas has caused my cleverness lobes to atrophy.  Anyway, I'm going to get back to pointing this thing at Hollywood and laughing.

Dude, you should totally do more sketches of alternate art for your cards. These look awesome. I love the different approaches you have to some of these ideas. If you picked different art for this card, I think the last one looks the creepiest.
