I recently renewed my relationship with the Lord and I was baptized and in honor of my spiritual awakening I am going to incorporate more and more spiritual art as my way of spreading good will towards others.
Maxwell & Maisie are two Old English Sheepdogs who are very fond of cold weather, as you can imagine since they have such wonderful coats! They are my 2013 Winter characters and I have some fun times planned for them!
Sugar is a sugar skull, and she is weeping for all the loved ones we have lost in death. She was inspired by The Day of the Dead festival in Mexico. During the festival sugar skulls are a confection made by local artisans and it is in danger of becoming a lost art. Read more about this fascinating tradition here.
I am introducing some new characters who will be keeping company with Guinness and Gatsby, my favorite Chinese Crested characters. The cat is Smudge, a tuxedo kitty, but for Halloween he is sporting all black fur, and his little mouse friend is Boomer. There is a picture book in the works with all of these characters so stay tuned!
Fall is right around the corner and along with it comes Halloween and Thanksgiving, which are my favorite times of year!

You can check it all out in my Ebay listings! Talk to you soon!
It is Nibblefest time again which inspired me to do some Sci-Fi/Alien stuff. The Alien Mars Milky Way Lounge waitress is a sexy, slithering, siren who wants to serve you with delight, or perhaps that little alien in the glass is waiting for her to serve you to it! Who knows, but the Mars skyline is gorgeous so who cares? Next in line is my tribute to 1950's sci-fi with my rendition of Gort, the famous robot from "The Day the Earth Stood Still." He is featured on an old, beat up 1950's television set, and is currently the star of my entries in Nibblefest! Next up is Space Vixen and Capacitor Dude on Patrol. Well at least Space Vixen is on patrol...looks like Capacitor Dude is goofing off again playing in the vast open outer space on the tether line. She was inspired by a picture I saw of my friend Dawn Ross who is a bartender and had her hair dyed pink for Halloween. I love this one! There is lots of influence in it from tangle style art, to the fiery Twinked-out sky, and that awesome ray gun clearly from the 1950's era sci-fi genre. All of these three can be seen and bid on in my Ebay listings! Then there is Kiton and Capacitor Dude at the bottom which I traded for an actual Capacitor Dude which was designed and created by the great visionary Preston McGhee. He is the creator and owner of Obvious Front where you can purchase little capacitor robots of all kinds, earrings, novelty free-standing pieces, etc. He may even mail it to you in a Floppy Cap! Don't ask what that is! You have to get one to experience it! Very cool stuff! Ok! That's it for this group! Until next time ...
Recently I stumbled upon a great tutorial by Derrick Rathgeber (Derrick the Artist) on how to train your brain to see your drawing as different individual pieces. It was a very rewarding exercise and this is what I created from that lesson. It is my latest listing on Ebay, click the link for more details.
