my new wallet.jpg

So, mobile blogging does work. This image of my new wallet was sent from my phone. That's right, my phone. Pretty nifty eh? I feel it's important to have an explanation of why the photo looks so blurry. Normally when I'm showing off my new toys and such, I try to at least have a decent picture of what I'm displaying. But it is my new wallet, I made it mostly myself. I didn't make the Altoid's tin, but I did paint the image that graces the top of it. And that's what really counts. It also has a money clip on the back and a magnet clip on the inside of the lid to hold my random pieces of paper I keep in my wallet. The owner of the boutique where my wife is selling her jewelry, really likes the idea of an Altoid tin wallet. She likes the idea so much, that in a couple of weeks I should have some made and ready for sale.

New places to spend money

Good news everyone! One day soon you'll be able to have all your favorite artwork from me, on all sorts of products! I opened up a store (just click on the link) that prints art, skateboard decks, messenger bags etc. Tell your friends, get a bag for your flying squirrels to sleep in, buy a print for your aunt, the possibilities are endless. Right now I only have two things up, but check back and I should have more up soon.

Another fun video

Behold. The Brink. This is a trailer for the new book by J.C. Hutchins. This guy knows how to write a scary book, well the ones I read were more suspenseful, gripping, and a darn good read/listen. Against what you might think, I am not getting paid for this. I just like the author is all says I. If you have an MP3 player and like podcasts, go to and find his 7th Son series.

A give away of sorts.

Cause this post is the bomb!

Wow, two postings in one night.

I don't know how far back this goes, but what I do know is that Anna started it, Tonia helped, and Whitney sucked me in. So here's the break down of my give away of sorts:

The first five people to comment on this post will get something made by me. It's my choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year (hopefully sooner than later.)
4. You will have no clue what it is going to be.
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange (would you expect anything else from me?)

There is a catch. Which is that you must re-post this on your blog (that means that if you want something from me, you must be willing to give something away yourself). The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me you did will win a marvelous homemade gift by me! I also have to be able to contact you somehow, you can email me your email from this page. Ok, now post!

TED talk

This is a crazy little talk from Pretty neat ideas. Listening to talks like this rejuvenate me. They make me want to turn my corner of the world upside down and make it look like I want it too. It also inspires me to continue pursuing my dream jobs of freelance illustrator and/or art director.
