An early Birthday present for my mom <3

A small little thing of small little creatures. The lady and the lion man want to scam the bunny girl outside of the bus station. Don’t worry, though, the bunny comes from a powerful magical family.
I saw some fabulous platforms at a thrift store today and they inspired me to get my paints out and get in the spirit of winter, albeit a glam rock one (the best kind).
P.S. It snowed a lot here in Michigan

I got the chance to create a piece for Spoke Art’s annual “Bad Dads” show, a Wes Anderson tribute, and the work created for it this year is seriously, seriously awesome.
Rushmore is a perfect film to me, from the soundtrack to the velvet curtains separating the story by months in a school year. Every main character has a kind of heartbreak to live with and Max is at the center of the chaos. With that being said, I HAD to do a Rushmore piece with Max at the center of a swirling, chaotic aquarium.

Late Summer/Early Fall sketches
I posted three of my short stories on my portfolio site, in celebration of *finally* finishing Grood’s Walk Home—the short story meant to go with Tim’s 25th birthday present.
Last weekend there was a Lil BUB meet and greet at Spoke Art in San Francisco and a Lil BUB Art show! BUB and her Dude were there to sign BUB’s wonderful book (mine came in the mail and I’ve already brought it to work to show off) and my piece “Stars and BUBs Forever” was there too, alongside some spectacular BUB pieces! A small, limited edition run of my print sold out, and it’s pretty neat to think that people on the other side of the U.S. now own it.
Here’s a photo of my piece in the show!
Happy Birthday to my sister, Carrie, who turned 17 yesterday! Because I worked all day and she went to school, we had an early morning 2nd Birthday, which I think we have discovered is the best way to celebrate a birthday.

In the works
Halfway through painting a personal piece, I was invited to create a new piece for an upcoming gallery show in San Francisco—I can’t WAIT to show what it is, but until now *meow’s the word*
Is the bug on your windshield anxious or afraid—Is he brave and prepared to meet death—Or is he just hoping for a new beginning?
An overpowering heat wave is upon us here in Michigan. I imagine the sun has a lot of fun at our expense, scorching shoulders and noses at street fairs and melting candy bars in car compartments.
