I’m creating a series of black/white line drawings for Red Sox newsletter “Sox Lunch“, found at soxlunch.com (duh).  Designed as snackable Sox news emailed to readership daily by noon, Sox Lunch provides scores stats and all the news you’ll need to own tomorrow’s watercooler conversation (if indeed there are any watercoolers remaining; perhaps you could own tomorrow’s Starbucks’ queue). For you social media mavens seeking a 24×7, 360 degree Sox experience without getting all . . . sweaty . . . there are Sox Lunch Facebook and Twitter pages, the latter providing in-game, inning by inning updates.

A season’s subscription costs $5.00, which works out to about $0.03 cents per game. Gimme a break, skip the queue and that Starbucks’ triple-latte-with-brie and subscribe now, at soxlunch.com.

And, of course, for more black/white Sox caricatures, which are actually quite colorful, visit my CURIOUS PAINTINGS website. Of course.


CROPPED CACTUS 1 MED RESWe’ve been living in Arizona for the last 10 or so months and I’ve finally gotten around to painting some of the local flora and fauna. Above is my watercolor entitled HOMESTEAD CACTUS. While the cactaceae (Eh, how’s that? Semi-Latin.) is about 30 feet tall or so, the painting itself is roughly 16″ X 26″, big enough for me. More flora and fauna, as well as babies, puppies, seashells and toasters at my CURIOUS PAINTINGS website.


Another watercolor portrait of granddaughter Vivienne; FLOWER BABY. Where do these things come from? I know, they come from my website! Glad I figured that out, this social media stuff is making me anti-social. Exacerbating my natural social hostility actually. Even more watercolors, portraits, cartoons and art miscellanea at www.briancody.com.

I’ve just completed a watercolor portrait of my 6 month old granddaughter Vivienne. Very bright-eyed, vocal and crawling already. Her parents are doomed.

More portraits at my CURIOUS PAINTINGS website.  If you’d like a portrait of someone special for someone special, please contact me.


crawling already. Her parents are doomed.

Blinded by an almost-fatal combination of caffeine and bad taste, I added 28 seconds of colored pen hari kari (do you realize you don’t need to be accompanied by an adult, or show two forms of identification, to buy Pentels in Arizona? Crazy again!) to my ARIZONA CRAZYSALAD LONG VERSION video. It’s the Wild West down here!VIOLET FLOWER 130001


I’ve most recently become entranced with a newish software app that allows me to, amongst other things, animate my watercolor paintings. WHAT A GREAT IDEA, ANIMATED WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS!!! Who couldn’t use a painting that moves? “GENIUS!” I exclaim to myself, being sure to keep my voice down because the other thing this app does is enable me to know, even when she’s in another room, when my long-suffering wife is rolling her eyes into the back of her head and sighing that l-ooooooong sigh.  Every time the G-word is used in our house, admittedly just frequently enough to provoke a saint to extreme violence, it’s quietly countered with the Einstein quote “The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” Not sure what the point is there but genius knows there’s a market for watercolors that jump about. And to that point, here’s the video of my new watercolor paintings, Arizona Desert Flower Crazy Salad.

More watercolor paintings, mostly static, family and pet portraits, cartoons and other oddities at my website collection of CURIOUS PAINTINGS.

Lastly, any and all of my art can be purchased in a variety of forms – mugs, t-shirts, cellphone cases, mousepads, postage stamps,  even skateboards – through my online store Zazzle.com/briancody.

I’ve added Portraits and Cartoons to my website of Curious Paintings. Click here for a quick 3+ minute YouTube video overview of my portfolio. Please be sure to contact me should you find yourself desperately pining for a gorgeous watercolor to illuminate your day or to commission a unique portrait of a unique personality or to lay your hands on some goofy cartoons to liven up a business presentation or project. Art for whatever you need.



I’ve been away from painting for a while but am back. I’ve a new promotional video that can be viewed at:


As before, my website is www.briancody.com and my email is brian.cody@comcast.net.
