I've played around with polymer clay (Sculpey) for a long time. I've always had some on hand and from time to time get the urge to make something. When my oldest son who is now 11 was younger we made a series of sharks and whales with sculpey. Recently I combined my love of puppets and monsters with the clay and started making little Monster Finger Puppets to sell on Etsy. I really don't want to part with any of these little guys but this way my wife will allow me to make more. Maybe they're priced too high? Feel free to give me any feedback, I can take it. You can see by the photos that they look great in little groups. I hope they find homes that will love them like I do but if not I guess they can stay here. :) Click HERE to see my Etsy store.

I love what I do. I get to create art that helps people share the way they feel with someone else. I make greeting cards and sometimes, usually early in the day or late in the day I'll draw a little creature or monster puppet and post it somewhere in the building. Sometimes I post in a busy area like the kitchen or common areas but most of the time I post in someone's office or cubicle behind a door or below a picture frame. I've been drawing these puppets on tentacles for a few years now and I really like they way they make me feel when I look at them. Silly and a little mysterious. Some of the others I like to imagine are what tiny bacteria would look like in a Dr. Seuss book. Since I started posting these about 5 years ago some have been lost, removed or cleaned up but here is a current recording of what remains. I'm sure I'll add more in time.

When I was younger I use to love Bloom County and Calvin & Hobbs. Then came The Far Side but lately I've been hooked on a new comic. It's called Bobo The Evil & Cute. The most amazing thing about it is that the author is only in the 4th grade.Yeah, I know! This is a piece of fan art I did. Click here to read the comic.

Ever so often I get stuck with wondering what to give as a gift for a birthday or special occasion. When I have the time, a good photo and if I've planned accordingly I might do one of these. The challenge is always making it personal so the headlines you see may not make sense or be funny to you but to the recipient they make perfect sense. When completed I print them out and mock them up on foam core and display.

Four years ago a friend asked me if I would do a caricature of her and her family and make a Christmas card for her to send out for the year. She got a great response and since then I've done the Boatright's Family Christmas Cards. You can see that each year we pick a new theme and do a photo shoot to match whatever theme they choose. Its a lot of photoshop work but a lot of fun to see the end result. I think the Twilight theme is my favorite so far.
