Hi Everyone, 
My new book Lint Boy is coming out in June of this year, WOOHOO! 
More on that later.
While thinking of a possible website for my book, I realized that my personal site was in dire need of a serious update first. After much research and agonizing, I decided to use Wordpress to redesign the new website. Lint Boy will have it's own section there. 
Unfortunately, that means that my blog is moving over there too. 
I really appreciate you Peeps reading my blog posts here over the years, and I hope you will continue to do so in the new location.

Thank you Blogger, you are easy to use and have been very reliable, but it's time for us to part ways now. I wish you all the best.

A Beautiful Quote

"My work is loving the world.
Are my boots old?
Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect?
Let me keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work,
which is mostly standing still
and learning to be astonished."

-from Messenger by Mary Oliver

People, I really like this pen project! As a lover of plant dyes, I think it's so cool
that this pen writes with wine, soy sauce spinach juice, food coloring, etc.
All the dyes you can come up with. You can make you own colors, try out new
stuff, have fun. I backed their Kickstarter campaign a whole while ago, and I
have been waiting for the pen to be sent to me for too long. But it looks like that
wait will be over soon.
Check out this movie they just sent out.

A Bright Sunshiny Day

I created this Treasury on Etsy, because I needed some brightness in my day today.

It makes me happy just looking at all the wonderful items. I hope it does the same for you!

The World Is Going Insane

Hi Peeps,

My favorite singer, composer, and musician friend, Pam Aronoff, and her partner Jim Watts, just finished a really cool Music Video.
Their band is called Rebel Alien, and the song, Politricks (The World Is Going Insane).
They worked with some great people; Steve Hanft animated the video, Bunny Saint Martin composited it.

The song is fun, the lyrics great, and the animation is refreshingly loose and spontaneous.
Check it out!

Creating something beautiful

Now that I am done with the paintings for Lint Boy, I am taking some time every day to work through a section of the mountain of email that has piled up over that last 6 months. Not my favorite thing to do, but it has to be done.
Once in a while I come across a little light point. Here is one of those fun surprises.

Good morning to you. I'm glad to see that you are doing well.
It has been a very long time, and much has happened...
I have been working non stop on my next book, a graphic novel called LINT BOY, published soon-ish by Clarion Publishing.
Lint Boy is getting nearer to completion  Nearer but not there yet. 
All of 128 pages will be painted in water colors, and I have many more to do.
Here a detail of page 21.

I will keep you posted.
Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season!
