Dork Art: Mark Draws Bruce Campbell

Happy Birthday, Bruce Campbell!  And to celebrate, artist Mark Hammermeister just posted this beautiful painting on his Facebook page.  It definitely popped out on the drab timeline; Hammermeister has been executing some striking color pallets of late, very much reminiscent of the Famous Monsters of Filmland of yore.

And in case you were wondering, here are my personal favorite bits of Campbell goodness.  Obviously, Evil Dead 2 leads the way.

There's no clip from his guest spot on the "Justice" two-parter from Homicide: Life on the Street but I think it's one of Bruce Campbell's finest hours.  Mustached and seriously depressed, his grieving cop represented the best of what this show had to offer: morally complex characters filled with rage and contempt for the beat life.
