Happy Last Minute Berfday Dad!

My Dad's cat McLovin' has a message!!


Barf kitties I drew when my eyes were dilated last month.

German Shepard outside the coffee shop today. He had a squeaky hedgehog, that he had to share with everyone entering and leaving. :)



Here is a video to torture my Dad. He watched this with me 3000 times when I was a wee child. He still curses at the mention of "Strawberry Shortcake" to this very day.

I like this. My Dad just told me he hates the Purple Pieman, and every time they would add a new character, because that would mean more crap around the house.

Secret

Last week was pretty positive! Kinda weird, if 2008 hadn't sucked so bad, this past week wouldn't have been so good... XP
Drawings!


A coworker found nothing humorous or entertaining about these kittens. :P

Power Girl is very brave. Very brave indeed.



I really like this song.



*****I had some recent trouble with my webmail! I lost some messages I haven't had a chance to reply to (I've been really slowwww -_-!!!) One that I know I lost was from a girl who sent me some of her sketches. I'm really sorry, I don't have your email to reply, please email me again! Eep!!!! <:O

Weird old stuff because I want to go to bed now.

I want to go to bed, and not turn on my Dell that is still hooked up to my scanner and all that jazz. So these weird things are going up instead.

Back in 2006 I was asked along with some other artists to design a potential mascot for the Chinese World's Fair. I never heard more about it after I pooped these drawings out, but I remember I named the fish "Pearl". She wears glasses, cause fish should wear protective eye wear to keep their eye balls from popping out. Oh, and the bug thing has bicycle shaped glasses. Yupz. More lameness next week probably. Toodles.
P.S. I dedicate this post to the Chinese Spammer Bots.

Ancient animation from an amoeba


My Mom sent me a vhs tape of a really bad film I made when I was 17. It was part Senior High school graduation project and college/scholarship portfolio. It was made with a JVC camcorder that could shoot on something close to 8 frames a second. It had to be shot in one take, and then the sound was re-recorded over the vhs. It is horrible, but it was so long ago and if I hadn't made it I wouldn't be getting to do what I get to do today. So thanks Mom for investing in the camcorder. Happy Early Mother's Day!

...and here's an old drawing from 2006 'cause I'm too tired to make something new and not secret this week.

Billie the Unicorn


"Billie the Unicorn" is a book I've been working on the last few years. It's 33 pages of unicorns, flowers, corn, bees, and some other stuff all drawn in old-school marker on animation paper.
It'll be out in Spring of 2011, and will be published by Immedium. I'm super excited that it's actually happening, it's been tough finding a subject that I'd want to illustrate for 33 pages. Billie was originally created for "The Unicorn Show" at Gallery Nucleus back in 2006, and I never felt that Billie and her cousins should be stuck on those solitary post-its forever. She's changed a lot over the years, and her story is one I think alot of artists migrating away from their comfort zones will relate too. There's also a bit of hodge podge from my senior film in college, and I'm hoping to do a little animation with Billie eventually. Depends on how full time work goes. So in the meantime, if anyone is interested in updates, please join the Billie page on Facebook. I promise not to spam too much.

My publisher is also being very supportive, so please check them out and their awesome books!



It's available for pre-order on Amazon.
