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!

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.)

It's Summertime!

It's a hot summer day, why not pile in the back of a truck and play chicken with a giant road monster? We can go birdwatching or throw coins to a roadside drunk. There are ghosts to play with and turtles to chase. Flowers to pick and farmers to toss frankfurters at! There's all kinds of fun to be had... It's Summertime!

New sketchbook, new drawing!

So here it is! It's just like a Moleskine except stronger stitching (double backstitch with hemp twine) and higher quality, thicker paper!  First drawing in it:

Babelbrooke 3K by Birdwagen Will Get Your Aviaries to School on Time

Getting the birds to school on time is critical, but not always possible when angry unicyclists on the street try to block your way. (These things happen, you just have to go around them.) Careful, though, as those hotrodders might just run you right off the road. That's why the new Babelbrooke 3K by Birdwagen is the right car for your aviary family.

With a seat that sets you high above anyone else you'll be able to spot road hazards like unicyclists and hotrodders in plenty of time to prepare and execute swift avoidance maneuvers. In addition, you'll feel more important way up there looking down on those other cars. (Just be careful at bridges & overpasses.)

Get your Babelbrooke 3K today!






The Posturing Birds

Birds can be nasty, often failing to keep their opinions to themselves. This Tall Bird is critical of the
girl's posture: "Stand up straight, or you'll get stuck like that." A passerby defends her, "Hey buddy, your posture isn't so great yourself." Meanwhile, a ghost chimes in "He's just trying to help!" To which the other ghost replies, "Stop it. You're just posturing."
