I'm excited to be participating in the "What If?" Show, which opens at 7PM this upcoming Saturday at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra. Come out and say hi! There also be a Jim Henson tribute show in the main gallery downstairs.
I drew no sharks but I couldn't resist the temptation to do something related to marine life.What if the Vampire Squid met the (Were)Wolf Eel? I painted these three pieces in gouache.
Here are the final pieces next to a print up of my digital studies.
Carrie stayed up with me and painted her own awesome "What if?" pieces. Check them out; they are adorable!
Here are a couple of memory sketches from my morning drive through Burbank's Rancho Equestrian neighborhood. I usually see people on horseback
And people walking many dogs. Almost every morning, I see a particular lady walking three portly dachshunds.
Also, who is going to CTN-X this year? I will be wandering the floor looking to say hello. Also, my roommate Carrie is doing a generous CTN giveaway this year, so be on the look out for that opportunity! :)
When theSnuggie made its first appearance via late-night infomercials, I don't think anyone could have imagined that the product would ever achieve the kind of popularity it has. A couple of years, several parodies, and many pub crawls later, the sleeved blanket has become popular enough to justify the creation of Snuggie variations such as the Two Person Snuggie (for the couple that likes to be lonely, together):

Later, I borrowed the sleeved blanket so I could make Chaos (current third roommate/foster child) a little more fashionable. Never before has a cat looked so regal :
But why stop at our four-legged friends, Snuggie creators? This of course has to be the next logical step:
I'm sure this would make many a salt-water aquarium owner very happy. But what would I know about sleeved-blankets? It's not like I own one or anything...
"Whaaaat?...I'm coping with being unemployed just fine.."
"I'm doing so well that...that I'm definitely not wearing a zebra-print snuggie as a sweater and eating a plate of bacon and boysenberry pie for lunch because that's the only food I have left in my fridge--"
Most people have anxiety dreams about terrifying free-falls, rapid tooth-loss, and the horror of leaving the house clad only in undergarments. My nightmares occasionally involve me being somewhere or doing something important and realizing that I am wearing my high school show choir dress:
