Every one of Don Stewart’s intriguing composite images is drawn entirely by hand, using an ordinary ballpoint pen. Each drawing begins with a pencil sketch, and a long list of possible ingredients. In a process that takes from one to (let's say many) months to complete, Don carefully researches each subject, and considers dozens of ideas and compositions before finally putting ink to paper.
By far the most enduring (and endearing) feature of Don Stewart's artwork is the humor. His irrepressible pun-manship is ever present, from the artist's simplest sketches to his most complex designs. (Fast Food)
Don is always behind in his work, but when an idea finally makes it to the drawing board, there's a good chance you'll see it here.

If anything earth-shaking happens, we''l tell you about it here. Hopefully it won't involve bail money.

Mashing words and pictures together can be a great brain-builder, and an excellent distraction if you have troublesome students (like my teachers did). Our Composite Image Lesson Plan is posted online at the Incredible @rt Department - an excellent resource for any teacher.
