Extra Special April Fool's Weekend Update!
Here's the new Uncle Septimus painting. It's a slightly younger, sprightlier Uncle Septimus, still growing his trademark whiskers. The colors aren't quite as bright as this in the actual piece, but they are pretty bright. Maybe the brightest thing I've ever painted. The foliage in the background reminds me of a rainbow sno-cone.
(I still wish they'd gone with this sketch, though.)
Did you know that beard-hair is the fastest growing human hair? And that a man actually does grow about 30 feet of beard over his lifespan? Strange but true. At least, according to some webpage I saw once that didn't cite any sources.
