Tricky Treat!

Friday will be Halloween! Yippee!

Here is Skippy's costume. He likes to wear it and finds it very comfortable.

He's supposed to be a cowboy. He likes to wear the hat hanging back, because it bugs his ears otherwise.

I cleaned up my balcony garden last weekend. It is still pretty hot in LA. Looking forward to sweaters and hot cocoa soon!!

Come back this Friday. There may or may not be another Halloween Trick or Treat, depending on asthma and overall business doing stuff for other people. I'll do my darndest to finish on time though. It will be full of crack.

Corny Cole

1997, the insanely talented Corny Cole. The young lass in the bottom photo is the sweet talented miss Destiny Wood.

Alot of people know Corny, and many know of his situation at the moment. He has been an inspiration to many, a helpful mentor, and friend. I've known him since 1996. He was my first figure drawing teacher and I took some of his fantastic painting classes. He's always been very supportive and would often bring artwork from various periods of his life to class. Sometimes it would be old books of his favorite illustrators, a beautiful painting, a relief made in sculpy, layouts from "Little Nemo", the epic animation he made for "Heavy Metal". Alot of these were lost in the fires last week, along with his pets.
I know this info can be found in many places already, but just a reminder if anyone would like to help Corny out during this rough time, here are some places to donate and contact:
Creative Talent Network Paypal Corny Cole donation account

Also you can snail mail:
Checks payable to Corny Cole
California Institute of the Arts
ATT: Trish Patryla, Office of the Provost

There also maybe an auction fundraiser, but I'm not sure who is in charge of it or running it. If anyone knows, please contact me. I'd like to contribute.

Komodo dragon has a wonderful birthday party!

Real news that isn't important! Sorry if this offends anyone, but a lizard has to eat.

"Komodo Dragon celebrates its birthday
Wednesday, October 1, 2008
A Komodo Dragon celebrates his eighth birthday with what looks like the world's most horrible birthday cake - a meat feast topped with mice!"
Note: The Komodo dragon's name is "Krakatoa". Awesome.
My Mom sent this to me, wanting me to draw this amazing photograph. Personally, I think no artwork can compare to the real thing. Plus I've got stuff for other people that has to get done tonight, yeah, you Fayetteville. I totally owe you.
I'm also behind on bday drawings for some friends. :C None of them are for Krakatoa though, he is not my friend.

Here is something I drew awhile ago when I was sad. It's been a hard year for me art/working wise, but this month is looking very up. 2008 still has hope. I might be actually animating some freelance soon. 2D. Not feature, but still something that will be alot of fun to work on! Then I can afford my own meat/flattened mouse cake! YUM!
When times are tough, have to stick it out. There is still alot of good to look forward to.
Also, I am making gingerbread cookies tonight. Using dough that is sold at Ikea. Hmmmm.....
