huge post, holy... cake?

Concept for some plush people I'm working on. They're still being fleshed out.

And some new(ish) plush! I made tons more over the weekend, so I'll post those as soon as I get pictures of them. Lots of tasty things to eat (if they weren't made of felt) and some sweet random keychains. I am superbly busy with a possible double-show in June, so posts may not be as frequent, but I promise when they are, they'll be of ACTION MOM quality.

P.S. There's two more shorts I'm featured in coming out, in the same series: Action Dad and The Married Guy Action Figure. Don't worry, I make TONS of obnoxious faces in both.

BUT, since I never posted it, here's a birthday sendable I did the puppeteering for a few weeks back- I'm the big retarded cake going "bum bum bum" and Devin is the singing cupcake. I designed the message cards for the end, as well.

Try JibJab Sendables® eCards today!

This is an eCard sendable video I acted in very recently at JibJab with my good friend and co-worker Devin as the art director/concept fellow. Justin did the awesome 80's backgrounds. Devin & I are supposed to look like 12-year-old-ish kids, but really just look like cracked out psychos. I think that's probably more believable anyway.

I'll post some drawings and other stuff I've been up to later, I promise. I've just been turbo busy.

great news

So, great news this week. I won a silver ADDY at regionals. AND, I got into the 2009 PlushYou! show. I'm going to create one-of-a-kind 3 pieces for it while will be exhibited and also be for sale at the show, and then the show opens in Seattle, Washington October 9th! I'm going to fly up there for the opening, I cannot be more excited... unless they had a Disneyland up there. But they do not, so that's that.

If you've ever been there, feel free to tell me the awesome things to do. I've got the Space Needle, the first Starbucks, and the Woodland Park Zoo on my list so far, but it's big awesome city and I'd like to see lots while I'm there.

-Properly frame things

made in the shade

So... awesome news! Super Punch! plugged me a few days ago on their crazy awesome blog where they basically show off all the coolest stuff they find everyday. How totally friggin' awesome is that? I feel all special and stuff. Thanks!

Also, a new plush series I'm developing, inspired by the unemployed: Happy Sacks. Good Luck VooDoo Dolls.

You can pop a message in their pouch, or perhaps a small candy for luck. They are squishy and fun and coming to an etsy (my etsy, specifically) near you!

Oh, and my absolute adorable-ness also graced the most recent entry on the JibJab blog- I brought in eggs for dying purposes. Woot. Despite the shortness of the weekend, it's been pretty awesome!

Some Easter/Passover work I did for JibJab over the last few weeks. The top two I wrote, as well, and created all the felty goodness for the third.

they think they are dogs

So, lots of cool people have been posting lots of cool work, and I thought I'd join the wave of awesome. I'm back from my vacation in midwestland, so here's some sketchbook pages from my most recent moleskine "Truth." Usually the only times I get to draw these days are in diners with Justin, or at figure drawing on wednesdays. Alas. One of these days I will have all the time in the world to do whatever I want.

On a completely different but much more amusing note: I found you can buy 3 lady goats on Craigslist for $150.00. And to think my father laughed when I said I was going to purchase a goat instead of a lawnmower. Hello?! Waaay cheaper. On yeah, and there's also this. Love craigslist. <3
