Dead Pets Society

For some reason we started a tradition in my fam of pet names starting with the letter "S". Why? Well, my brother and I, in our infinite childhood wisdom and creativity decided to name our first cat Scott - after the dog next door . . . As per why Sophie is faceless, she's not actually dead. Yet. But she's getting up there and I wanted to get a head start on the whole set.

Matchbooks! America's Design Library!

Michelle picked me up a sweet matchbook collection at the Brimfield (MA) Antique Show for 5$! This is but a taste. I hate to be one of those illustrators who moons over when overthing was illustrated but uh . . . I'll draw Mister Pancake! I love the processed color palettes too and the hand drawn type - especially the PROX logo.

Cleaning up the Gulf

Reports are not good. I saw a short video on the NYTimes site about how folks are just waiting around to start the clean up but are being told to hold off. That's gotta be a terrible sense of foreboding.

I know a dinobot when I see one, and Autobot "Sludge" was outside my house all weekend. He had been tearing up the street on Vanderbilt using his foot-stomping earthquake thing disguised as a loud metallic chewing up of the concrete. He would have been tired, which is why he didn't try to contact me. I did not, nor should any one ever, attempt to feed a Dinobot luring them with hand held energon cubes! Their primitive minds will not distinguish your hand from the cube!
