"It's A Christmas Miracle."

So a painting I did for the NBC television series "Parks and Recreation" aired recently.  It portrays the character April ( played by Aubrey Plaza ) as a barbarian woman who has just vanquished the band "Black Eyed Peas". In the episode, April receives the painting as a Christmas gift and drolly states, "These are the Black Eyed Peas, and I finally killed them.  It's a Christmas miracle."

It was a fun painting to do, and the fans seemed to love it.
It's even been getting a little press.

You can watch the entire episode here.  It's episode 410 "Citizen Knope".

It's not the first thing I did for the show.  I was also asked to do line drawings for a couple of murals that appeared on the show. I didn't do the painting part, just the initial sketch. Those paintings appear in episode 409. Thanks to art director Jeffrey Mossa for the fun work!
