This was a demo for Will Terry's illustration class. All of his students are doing a Banjo Pig for an assignment. Awesome. Can't wait to see them all. They will be posted on the Banjo Pig Blog. Enjoy.

Batty Automaton

Here is my latest little project. I really needed to make a Halloween automaton and this is what I came up with. It's a very simple movement but because it is on such a long flimsy pole it is a heck of a lotta fun to watch. Even more fun in person. Enjoy.

Soggy Bottom Pig

I did this little banjo pig for illustrator David Weisner when he was in town doing a presentation. I drew it on one of those watercolor postcard pads of paper, then when it was all done I sent it to him as a thank you. I was his host for the few days that he was here, driving him around, showing him the sights...whatever. He is a really great guy and a fantastic artist. It was nice to get to know him. Anyway, enjoy the pig. I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything. I'm bad.

Stacy Curtis selling stuff

My buddy Stacy Curtis is finally selling one of his awesome little paintings. This one is an elephant riding a bicycle. Somebody should buy it before I do. If somebody buys it then maybe he'd be convinced to sell more of them. He really should. They're awesome.

Buy it on ebay.

I've been toying around with the idea of selling some original stuff too. Hmmm... what do you think, should I do it?

A while back, my wife and I went out for sushi. Mmmmmm sushi. The restaurant had paper on the tables so, of corse drawings needed to be drawn. I think I mentioned this on facebook before. Anyway, what I didn't mention was that my wife snuck a video of me drawing the Godzilla sushi. Thought you all might like to see. It is all just silly, but I am drawing it upside down.

I never know what to post on this ole blog, or what people like to see. I do know that I haven't posted anything for a long time so, here are some recent random sketches. Oh, and a little animal parade that I posted over at the banjo pigs site. People are still sending banjo pigs to us. It's awesome.

New Book!

Last week I got a package in the mail. It was full of the advance copies of my newest picture book "A View at the Zoo" by Kathleen Long Bostrom and published by Ideals Children's Books. I was really happy with the quality of the printing. They did a great job. It is scheduled to come out in the spring, probably April. However, a friend of mine saw it on Amazon and ordered it. He had it in his hands the next day. Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for it in stores. I'll let you know more about it later.
