I still have to finish the background for Vader . It’s going to be a sad day when I have to give it to the client. I’ve had way to much fun having Darth grab things.
If you’re asking yourself where’s the dig deeper part, look to Darth’s helmet. It explains why he is so angry and evil, He’s got a broken heart. On the other side is the 1st initial of the child it was made for. When he’s older, his father can explain to him the deeper meaning of this Vader. Remember folks to choose wisely and dig deeper y’all!
I did this piece about 8 years ago. It seems to stir up mixed emotions with people. My intent was to remind people to think. I encourage you to draw your own conclusion regarding today’s holiday, regardless if you have the same views on faith as I do.
I love the conflict of this piece, one side is asking you to spend while the others mission is to save. The excitement of the holiday is hard to ignore. Bunnies are running around breaking into homes across the country vandalizing living rooms with eggs and chocolate. The children love it! I often wonder if mine are anarchists. But we always discuss what it’s really about. What’s really important. Is it people or things? I also like to point out the fact that these chocolate bunnies we all get excited about are in fact hollow…

My daughter has recently become obsessed with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Being that her birthday is coming up in a few days, she requested a Stay Puft toy. I looked everywhere to find one, but came up empty handed. Luckily I had a project that fell through, so I had the time to finish this for her birthday.
I just finished a commission, though the final product is not what was intended (above). I was experimenting with a new product to clear coat these panels. Unfortunately it made all the ink smudge and I was forced to do another layer over it. Luckily, I ended up liking this better than my original idea. (Below)
Continuing to expand upon our previous Lego project, we repurposed our secret island. This project is all about equality… For monsters. After all, monsters are people too! -errr were people that is.
My daughter decided that the monsters needed a place to relax and unwind. A place to escape the pressures of the day to day grind. Above all a judgement free environment to be themselves.
As any mysterious monster island getaway should, it contains many secrets. There’s a total of 5 secret entrances hidden throughout the island. If you check out the previous build, you’ll find a few of them. Want to know about the rest? I can’t tell you, it’s a secret, but feel free to guess!
Want to relax and unwind? Why not sit by the waterfall and enjoy the view? Wondering what flounder has to do with monsters? He does work for a company that’s know for killing off parents in most of their movies!

Imagine if the Prius was around back in 1985. As of 4:00 today we officially stepped into the future. Where’s my hover board?
I wanted to have this post published by 4:00 today (the time Marty and Doc entered the future), it’s now 5:56… Maybe I shouldn’t have picked a Prius?

I recently did some window art for the Jimmy Fund Clinic where my daughter is being treated. This was in celebration of Suesstember. I wanted to give something back as a gesture of gratitude for the amazing care that they have provided for my daughter. Everyone there is awesome!
They go out of their way to make the children feel comfortable. The resource room a has plenty of games, crafts, and activities to keep my daughter distracted from the impending doom of injections. Twice a week she endures the pain of double shots in her legs. Astonishingly she does this with a smile and a positive attitude. I watch in awe as she weathers these storms, showing me what true perseverance is all about.
The true test of a person is not how they act when everything is going well, but how they react when their world goes sideways. I can only hope to teach my daughter half of what she has taugh me about life.
If you feel inclined, please consider donating to The Jimmy Fund. They are an amazing organization.
If you are unable to donate, feel free to share this to help spread the word. Thank you!
