As part of our holiday festivities we mixed up some gingerbread cookies and sidecars last night. For sidecars make like this: three parts brandy, one part triple sec, one part sour mix with a sugared rim and a slice of orange or lemon. Crank up A Charlie Brown Christmas and then cancel all of your other plans.

I'm adding lots of new things to my shop this week and my hand made mixtape cellphone charms are one of them. I made a lightbox yesterday and took tons of photos of my new stuff. But now I have the dreaded "computer eye" so I'm going to take a break and go get supplies so that I can have "Christmas tree decorating/cookie eating eye". I mean eyes.

Shepard Fairey, Issac Lin, Matt Leines, Alex Lukas and Katy Horan are just some of the artists who have work in the show. If you're in Philly go check it out-if you're not you can watch the event on 1026's site or bid for work on eBay.

Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and the line to come out to the Bazaar on Sunday! Special thanks to my family, friends and JP-I couldn't have done this without their help and support. It was a crazy day and Jen and I saw some great work and met some really nice fellow crafters, artists and shoppers. My only regret is that I missed out on the pie. I'm smiling in this picture because the pie has yet to sellout. I'll also put up some more pictures on my flickr page and add the new merch to my shop. Here's a couple links to check out from fellow vendors. . .

. . .I saw Wait Wait Don't Tell Me last night at the Wang and it was amazing and hilarious. Peter was charismatic as always and there were only two "wicked" jokes. Mo Rocca, Charlie Pierce and my favorite, Amy Dickinson held their own in a show that included discussion of gps underwear, giant pinatas, and James Bond. Plus, the guest for Not My Job was none other than Congressman Barney Frank. Tune in this Sunday to hear the show for yourself on your local NPR station or listen to the podcast.
My new favorite podcast is The Casbah from KSYM 90.1 San Antonio. Brian reads your mind and plays a great mix of surf, garage, old school soul, random alt rock and other stuff. There's a set list on the site as well so you can find your favorites from the shows-old and new.

Here's a peek at something I've been working on-trying to get back on the gouache train. September was a really busy month. . .a lot happened! The print lottery at AS220 was a big success. I went to the Pictoplasma conference in New York and saw amazing and inspiring work from Fons Schiedon, Tim Biskup, David OReilly and Tokyoplastic. I've got Sparkyart stickers on the way in addition to new button sets! Also, the big multiplayer game I was lead designer on for GBH is finally finished. You can play it here.

This five color screenprint is the latest thing I've made at the shop. . .it's printed on archival 11 x 14" paper and is an edition of fifty. The horseshoe is metallic silver. Yee-haw. It's going to be in the AS220 Print Lottery which you can read more about here.

Dear blog readers (i.e. Mom and Dad),
Sorry I've been so lazy about posting lately. This summer has been crazy busy! Thankfully it's also been productive. . .how you ask? Well check it out. I painted eyeballs on coconut shells. And I hot glued bows on them. Owowowowow.

Hello hello! I am now a member of the AS220 Printshop in Providence! This print is from my first limited edition of screenprints that I've made there. It's an edition of 25 and each 9 x 12" print is numbered and signed. Head on over to my shop and pick one up! The printshop is great and I love the Taqueria Pacifica, over at the original AS220 building. Vegan veggie burritos 4-evah.

Today is Earth Day and if you're in Boston take a drive by WGBH in Brighton and check out the digital mural-today is all about The Greens, an original broadband series that I do character design and animation for. It's exciting to see something I worked on at such a large scale!

I went to the Mike Mignola talk the other night at the ICA, part of their ICA/AIGA series. Mike talked about his early influences including Frank Frazetta and Jack Kirby and showed a wide range of his Hellboy work-from early comics to concept work he's done for both films. Christopher Golden was there with Mike and the whole thing was like sitting in on a conversation between good friends as opposed to a formal lecture. Plus, Mike was wearing a Sof' Boy t-shirt. Awesome.
