Did you ever have a best friend? Someone you couldn’t get anything done without?
I was thinking alot about “friends” this week at work, and what that means. When I was a kid I used to measure friendship by people that made me feel good. Now I’d rather have friends be honest with me so [...]
My favorite place to get ideas out of my head are 24 hour diners. I’m a night owl, so the brain usually starts churning after midnight.
I was with Jerod over the weekend at a place around Union Square. We were working on several projects when I started drawing him as the birdman.
I’ve done [...]
Here’s the new version. I made some changes to the staff of the female warrior to echo the stern of a norse ship, as well as adding some scrollwork into her armor. I changed the male warrior’s helmet to harmonize better in shape with the other’s head symbols, as well as making minor changes to [...]
This is one show I always looked forward too. The opening music is catchy and inventive with a twist of disco. I would hum this to myself whilst coloring farm animals with crayons many moons ago.

I wasn’t sure where the idea came from then, but now know that its origins started in Falconry. There are even places allow you to witness the [...]
My mom sent these to me in an email. I wish I knew who took the pictures originally so I could give them credit. It is a kitten with a budgerigar parakeet, also known as a “Budgie”.
Tyrannosaurus rex just got a firm grip on the animal kingdom’s family tree, right next to chickens and ostriches. New analyses of soft tissue from a T.rex leg bone re-confirm that birds are dinosaurs’ closest living relatives.
“We determined that T. rex, in fact, grouped with birds – ostrich and chicken – better than any [...]
I like how they describe the proboscis of the moth as being a “fearsome harpoon”. Heh. Makes me wish I had a proboscis if I was in trouble.
A species of moth drinks tears from the eyes of sleeping birds using a fearsome proboscis shaped like a harpoon, scientists have revealed. The new discovery [...]
