Secret Toychest ____________________________November 12th, 2004 - saturday___



November 12th, 2004 - saturday

Whoo boy, I've been gone a while. Sorry about that. I've been playing catch-up on Daisy Kutter Chapter Four, so I'm putting my web stuff on a short hiatus for now. No worries. I'll definitely make up for it when I do return. In the meantime, here's a look at the whole thing as a work-in-progress. It's pretty neat to see it all together like this.

Hey, so this weekend, my friend Ben is having another cool gallery show at Nucleus. This time, it's the "Secret Toychest"! It will feature an exhibit of contemporary toys and an introspective look at toy culture. Very cool. 8)

Recently, I did a piece for Penny Arcade's Child's Play Charity Auction. It reminds me of the days when my friend and I would play our new video games all day after opening up our presents on Christmas morning. It's also the first Prismacolor piece I've done in years, so it was nostalgic in more ways than one. Click here for a better look at it.

Can't stop thinking about the Incredibles…

So, a few people were surprised that I would get all teary-eyed like a little girl while watching this film, and frankly, so was I. In fact, I saw it twice and got all emotional both times! This is why I think the film is SO GOOD. It's like going to your favorite deli, and ordering a sandwich with the works. You know what's in it, and you know what to expect. When they hand it to you, it looks like what you expect, and has everything you asked for, and then you take a bite… and you start CRYING because it is so damn good you can't believe it. It is one of the best sandwiches you have ever experienced and I say experience because it is not just eating, this is a full-on emotional high. You never expected to feel that way eating a sandwich, and I never thought I would feel the way I did while watching an animated action adventure film about superheroes. So, again, go see this movie. If you're anything like me, it's one of the best sandwiches you'll ever experience.

Oh, and the SpongeBob comic I did for Nickelodeon Magazine is on the stands now! Go check it out!
