Happy Holidays!


And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

Dr. Seuss

With all my heart, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!

Keeping Wisdom Teeth: Not so Wise


So, after having some seriously impacted wisdom teeth for about six years, they finally got badly infected last week. Up until now I have just not had the means to get them taken out. And since I have also had an allergic reaction to almost every anti-biotic I'd ever been treated with, I've just always been in the habit of making sure the area around my wisdom teeth were kept immaculately clean. And if they ever felt sore and I expected an infection I would wash my mouth out with some good whiskey (anything 56% alcohol by volume and didn't taste terrible) until they got better. But alas that could not work forever. The infection this time traveled to my jaw before I could get a handle on it. When I went to the dentist he said that considering the extent of the infection, and my allergies to anti-biotics, that I needed to remove the wisdom teeth as soon as possible. With the help and support of Jeff (the most wonderful-est person in the whole wide world! EVAR!!!) we where able to scrape together enough to proceed with the removal. And, of course, Jeff couldn't help but take this snapshot of me post-op. Enjoy!

Chuck 2


I'll be having a table again at this years Chi-Town Comicon and I'm trying to get some colored pieces finished before then. This pic is one of maybe two that I've colored in the past few years, so I'm still trying to get back into the swing of it. Only nine more days!

Warning: Viewing Picture May Cause Onlookers To Turn To Stone.


I've always been fascinated by the legend of Medusa. She was sea nymph, and the most beautiful of the three gorgon sisters. Medusa was courted by Poseidon and made love to him in a temple of Athena. Furious, Athena transformed Medusa, giving her snakes for hair and cursing her so that anyone who lays eyes upon her turns to stone.

Just another reminder that you shouldn't piss off a god.

Huggles To The World!



I kept seeing this video on the Discovery Channel and I just couldn't get it out of my head. It reminds us to appreciate how precious and amazing our world is while simultaneously reminding us of all the really cool shows on the Discovery Channels.

Hawkgirl

Hawkgirl. This was a commissioned piece. I had never done a picture of Hawkgirl before but it ended up being a nice challenge.
