Uncommon. You can upload your own art and they have some fancy-pants way of putting it on the case. Miss Anne has had one of their cases for quite a while and the image doesn't even scratch wear! I'm going to make a custom image next time.

Well this year I went all crazy and decided to screenprint my monster art, so prints will be available at the Austin and Houston Monster Shows! I hadn't printed anything since college so special thanks to Carlos at Burning Bones Press for helping me get it done!

Well it's that time of year again, time for Domy's Annual Monster Show, Houston and Austin on Saturday, October 29 from 7-9 pm! I haven't run out of Univeral Monsters yet, so here is Frankie's girl doing a little domestic engineering.

For the past year or so I've been working on a commission for a cookbook cover. It's goal is to bridge the gap between busy families and Spanish speaking caregivers that prepare meals. It was fun to work on and you can buy one here. When you go there you will see the final cover sans kids, but I'm kind of fond of the version with them so I'm going to show it here.

It's taken me a while but I finally finished my entry for pal Paul Adam's Scanner Darkly Sketchbook. For those not familiar with this, many of the animators had a sketchbook with a theme and we would pass them around to each other. Paul's theme is "Untamed Universe" so of course I had to draw a space girl being attacked by tentacles. To see some of Paul's work just click on the link to the right.

On April 21 I'm participating in the Mentor Show, works by Houston area art instructors and their students. It's going to be at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake and will run until May 19. I'm participating with my AP Studio student Kyle Dittmann, and our theme is superheroes doing mundane activities, kind of an ongoing subject of mine that Kyle also wanted to explore.

This particular week there was a need for two lunch bags, one for a field trip and one for Field Days. And once again these never make it home. My daughter said she really tried to hang on to them this time but they still disappeared.

For our Spring Break week my daughter and I came up with an activity for every day, and Thursday was "Make Art All Day" day. I cut up a bunch of cardboard for us to paint on and to build with. In fact it was so much fun that we decided to continue it but alternate with Sketch Klubb for an every other Saturday schedule. Here are a few of the things I made: Two small acrylic paintings on cardboard and a small bungalow house also from cardboard.

I want to encourage everyone interested in cartooning to check out the Center for Cartoon Studies. In case you weren't reading my blog last summer I took an awesome workshop there and wish like the Dickens I could go back (maybe someday). If you want to take cartooning to the next level that's the place to go, and you can get an MFA and draw on the experience of the best in the business. There is still time to apply for the fall semester so I encourage you to check it out!
