US Presidents Lining Up (I Think)

I'm looking for a country music song. All I can remember is the artist, male, singing about the presidents of the US. If can remember correctly they were lining up and at a funeral (but, I could be wrong). Any suggestions as to what song it was?

Particular web article on how to make people think you're an artist

I'm trying to locate a web article article I saw a few years ago. It was about things a person could do to make people believe he/she was a "real" artist. I think I remember it saying that a lot of the success in the art world depends on what people think of the artist him/herself, and that the more that people saw a person as "an artist", the better the chances of getting paid (or getting paid more) for their art, and being a professional artist. (Or maybe it didn't say that and I just thought it after reading the article.) [more inside]

Hiring custom artist for a card game?

I'm designing a card game and I have most of my own art for prototyping, but eventually want *real* art. I have no place where to look for such a thing or how much it would cost. Does anyone have any ideas on what sort of going rate such a thing would cost? Do you pay by the hour? Any tips are greatly appreciated.

I love this artist! If only I knew who it was...

Artist trivia time! I love this painting! Does anyone know who the artist is? It's a painting with a sculpture of similarly-shaped heads next to it...but I just saw it randomly online and haven't the first clue of who it might be. Has anyone seen anything like it before? (other than on Easter Island)

Name that 20th century European artist

I'm trying to think of the name of a male, Eastern-European artist that made paintings of dark, unsettling landscapes. I remember being linked to a very basic webpage of his work, and I wish I could remember more details about his work. As for time period, maybe 20's-70's. Again, sorry for the lack of details. I want to say he was not well-known and did the landscapes in the 40's or 50's.

I need to be a better illustrator!

Help me become a better (comic book style) artist so I can illustrate my own scripts. I need to become better at sketching, primarily. The human figure mainly, but also backgrounds and layouts. I don't have $$ for an extensive course, so I'm looking primarily for books and online tutorials. (I also need to find artists to illustrate scripts I don't have time to do myself, if anyone's interested.) Thanks.
