The Love of My Life

I wouldn't say I'm having an affair or anything, but I just really love peanut butter. All people tell me is how much fat is in it, it's all processed garbage and sugar, blah, blah, blah. I exercise enough to cancel all that out, so you know...shove it. If I ever die under mysterious circumstances and an autopsy is performed, they're going to find that in lieu of water, I'm actually composed of 70% peanut butter. It's SO good. Bananas are a close second, but that's another story...

One of Those Days

Ever just feel like something's missing? Feel paranoid everyone's laughing at you? Well, sometimes it's true.

"Everybody hates Hurley"?! No way! Lost has been quite a rollercoaster. In my humble opinion it started off very strong but "lost" steam a bit in the middle seasons (4 in particular). This last season I thought started out weak and got more interesting as it went on. It's definitely built on anticipation and mystery which are its strongest points. I look forward to the final season to see what happens. It's a long time to wait, but lots of time to do 'Lost' art dedications ;)

Buff and Bothered

I had the same expression on my face as I made this Buffalo. My sketch tonight was going to be something entirely different, then I tried something else which I didn't like, then by the time I came up with this I was way too frustrated and tired....but it was a fun way to play with shapes!

Book Signing

Tonight I went to a book signing of a former instructor and friend Leuyen Pham, who is a very talented illustrator. She started out as an artist at Dreamworks and now works as a freelance children's book illustrator. Check out her stuff here. So anyways for her latest project, she teamed up with actress Julianne Moore to create two children's books titled Freckleface Strawberry and Freckleface Strawberry and the Dodgeball Bully. Julianne was there too to do a reading of the book and along with Leuyen did a book signing afterward. Both are very nice people and I'm very happy for their successes.

Exhibit C

"To the owner of the black cat,
Your cat has killed two of my birds, and I'd like this to stop. Please keep your cat where it belongs, OFF OF OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY!! I don't want any more of my pets to die.

Thank you"

This was an actual note I received not too long back regarding my dare I say innocent cat Tuna. I was letting her outside during the day while I worked, not only so she'd stop bugging me, but so she could be out enjoying fresh air and a new environment. It was weird, most of the time I'd let her out, she'd just walk straight to backyard garden and go to sleep. Apparently there's more she was up to. Now, there's another black cat a few doors down from us that could be responsible for this, but I have the sneaking suspicion it was Tuna. Unfortunately it was the headless bird corpse I found her gnawing on one day that gave it away. Granted, I don't want my cat killing anyone else's pet, so needless to say we keep her inside now where she finds other things to destroy. I feel like the parent of a criminal who constantly defends their child.

When will she stop?!

It's a love/kill relationship with my cat...

Yo Mama...

...gotta glass eye with a fish in it! I heard this line today in an old school rap song, and thought "What imagery."

Everyone's A Comedian

There's said to be hierarchy amongst Emperor Penguins, one that all the others follow, but no one wants to follow you when you're a inconsiderate smart ass.
