Los Chupacapras!

Los Chups de la Noche

I put this image together for a 10K night run called "Los Chupacapras de la Noche" held in San Antonio, Texas last month. The character originated from my "Sasquatch and the Bunny" project but I think it came together nicely here with running shorts and headlamp!

Unfortunately, the t-shirts they made for the event came out terrible. Of course, that's just my personal opinion. My best guess is that they used the JPEG instead of the EPS file! Anyway, because I wanted a t-shirt I could wear...I've gone and made it available on my CafePress site. If you want one can find that right here.

So, uh...what's your sign?

I drew this Zodiac set for AstroGirl Magazine. It should be out on newstands by now...
In case you are wondering...I am a Libra. Very balanced yet very indecisive. Artistic! And prone to favor sweets and shiny objects.
*You have until October to get your shopping done!! ;0)

IF: Forgotten


It's been forever since I participated in Illustration Friday. And, man! I've really missed it! I love this challenge so much. I wish I could participate every week but until I win that SuperLOTTO prize, I will need to continue trying to make enough money to house (and feed) me and my dog! ;0) Still, I'm hopeful that I will be able to play more often anyway!

This week's theme: Forgotten. For me, I could have gone a million different ways with this one...I've "forgotten" a lot! Where I put the KEYS, the garage door opener, the dog leash, my silver flip-flops, or what so-in-so said about who-was-it? Forgotten passwords are a given. Anyone else?

Palm Readin'

Palm Readin'

Ok, even though I drew this, I still have no idea what it all means when I look at my own palm. First, should I read my predominant hand (I'm a lefty). Or is it always the right hand? Does it matter? The lines LOOK different on each hand. I'm thinking I'm gunna go with the one that says I'm going to live the longest and be the happiest, where I get to travel the world, be married and have kids. Right? Which hand allows me to do all that?!! Maybe I should leave it to the "professionals"!!

I've always had an affection for Palm Reading signs...they're so cool, so mysterious and kind of kitschy too. I just haven't gathered the nerve to stop in one and get an actual reading. It's on that "that'd be cool to do some day" list. BUT, I get a little freaked out about the idea of someone else being able to glimpse into my future. Besides, I'd only really want to know good news. Bad news sucks. Period. No need for advance warning! And besides that, I'd probably worry that they were keeping bad news from me.

So yeah, guess I'll move this to the "I'm too chickenshit for this" list.

This little illustration was for AstroGirl Magazine.

Shameless Pug after your done watching the "Presidents" marathon on The History Channel ( btw, Happy President's Day!) and the "Star Wars Tech" show....stay tuned for "The History of the Joke"...starring Lewis Black interviewing folks like George Carlin, Robin Williams, Dave Attell and many others. I say this because comedy is funny and because my lovely sister was the Talent Executive on the show. Of course, I'm super late in plugging the show but I thought it was on tomorrow night, not tonight. Grrr.'s also on tomorrow night but at 1 AM. I don't usually last much later than that, but who knows, maybe one of you will have a tight deadline and need to pull an all-nighter. In that case, you've got something great to keep you awake!

The History of the Joke on The History Channel. Check your local listings!!! In my neighborhood, it's playing at 9PM.
Tomorrow night---1AM
