Rex Menaced by a Beaver



Rex proudly wears the scarlet serge tunic of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police except, of course, when he's bathing, then it's just the Stetson hat. Here, Rex's idyllic bath is interrupted by a menacing beaver.

WANTED!




The Inspector briefs his men on the desperate fugitive Josh Harmonieux. The charismatic miscreant is an art forger, poacher, identity thief, contraband armadillo purveyor, and gratuitous rib shooter. He was last seen wearing a plaid mackinaw and ecru manpris (a bit of a crime in itself). He is suspected locally in a recent rash of Eat-More Bar disappearances. Harmonieux (also known as "Harmonica", "Humorous", "HJ", "Hormones-R-Us", "Plein d'humour", and "Harmonious") is considered extremely dangerous and should be approaced with caution, but must be brought to justice at all costs. The black-souled villain must not remain at large.


Enlarged to Show Joshiness.

And best of all, it's for SALE!

Rich Clausy Goodness Part 3




Gouache 2.5x3.5 inches

Auburn Rubber Police Motorcycle



Nothing makes me more nostalgic than Auburn Rubber toys: The freakish proportions of the cop, the sound of the wheels on a church pew, chewing the head off of the farmer on the tractor, the home made farm animal shooting galleries, the flavor of the vintage rubber, the pungent aroma of the melting speedster...ahhh childhood.

Up for bids.

Old School All Stars: Tyrone "T-Bone" Richard

Tyrone "T-bone" Richard

This card portrays Tyrone "T-bone" Richard, Defensive Safety Back, for the Cleveland Cuyahogas. Known more for his moves on the dance floor and his vocal stylings than his erratic defensive play, T-bone can make the crowds cheer with a spectacular interception and the ladies swoon with a soulful ballad.

Tableaux Vivants



Dress Rehearsal

Inspector Fitzgerald working undercover? No, he's rehearsing the part of The Little Mermaid for the upcoming 32nd Annual Regimental Auxilliary Tableaux Vivants. Mrs. Inspector Fitzgerald hopes she can get the Inspector to remove the Stetson hat for the performance. The Inspector hopes, that with his recent prostate problems, he'll be able to sit still for the perfomance. (This piece created in response to a double dog dare from ebay artist golders, issued during a discussion started by punchdrunk protege ebay wannabe artist harmoniousjosh. The idea, as I recall, being how many popular ebay search items could fit into a Mountie card.)
