Sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a warm carrot.



Terrarium Despairium

Big Bird thinks he can just boat into a tiny nightclub and he'll magically fit? No, no, no.  We got people caught up in that tube watching the swordfight up above. Birds are poking each other with pointy spear things -- This is not a nice place.

These people chopped roots and think everything will be okay if they eat the apple? No, no, no. Don't take that fish, window man. This is Terrarium Despairium.


Fishing for Giant Sea-Monkeys

What a lovely day to fish for giant Sea-Monkeys!  He doesn't actually want to bother them, though, so they do this thing where he drops a hook down in the water with no bait and the sea-monkey tugs on the line a little, and they look at each other through the rippling water and laugh together at that giant monster with people all over him that's about to attack the house.


Twin Terrariums

Sail on a skyship to the Twin Terrariums, where a kid can be a dragonrider or dance on the spot at the top of Mushroom Mountain. Grab a pole and fish for a friend, or talk to the bird in the tree about that time you poked yourself with a fork "to feel alive again." You'll feel alive at the Twin Terrariums where everyone is friendly and you can eat all the mushrooms and flowers (but not birds) one could ever want. Book your skyship today!

New Moleskine, New Drawing

Finally, a sketchbook paper that responds favorably to light watercolor washes... I love you, Moleskine!

Lonely? No problem. If you don't have any friends there's this guy you can call: The Party Cobra.

He'll post an ad in Casual Encounters and next thing you know all these wholesome Craigslist people storm your apartment at midnight and your neighbors are instantly impressed that you have so many friends. (They'll talk about it for weeks.)

Suddenly you're popular and cool and your party is a hit and you wake up cold in the bathtub with your carpets ruined and your dog is sick and your plumbing no longer works and and it hurts when you pee and there are several dead people in your kitchen all thanks to The Party Cobra.

Call today.


New Pen, New Drawing

First drawing with my new Pilot Prera fountain pen: It's the Party Cobra! Ready for color.


Twilight: The People Garden

Here's an illustration I did for Stephenie Meyer's first draft of Twilight before she added that part about vampires and werewolves. (Twilight was originally a children's story about vegetables planting a people garden.)
