Captain Cluck is one ferocious space chicken, and his fleet of Eggsilon pigships is heading towards Earth with a very top secret mission.  Who knows what they want or what they're after!

This is a new story I'm working on for Illopond's upcoming anthology: "8 in Spaaace!"  I'm pretty excited about where it's heading and will be trying out this painterly style for the illustrations.

Speaking of Illopond, we'll be debuting our anthology "Boo!" at the Alternative Press Expo this weekend:

Please stop by table 515 to say hi!  I'll be there promoting our new anthology and selling some Pudgy Puppy goodies, as well as commissions.  Mention this blog and I'll even give you a special treat :)

The moment I saw the Illustration Friday word "mesmerizing", I thought of two gigantic eyes. . which then led to owls. . which then led to the traditional practice of hypnotizing patients.  That's just the way my mind works ;).

I apologize for my long absence from this blog.  I came back from Boston/Ireland and then jumped directly into catching up with my picture book illustrations.  Thus, this week's IF is a little rough but in return, I give you a sketch I made during my travels:

It's of a traditional thatched roof cottage that was built in the 1800's by a poet in Adare, Ireland.   How charming would it be to live there?  The trip was fabulous by the way. . great time to catch up with old friends and get inspiration for a new show I want to do with Tea's the Season next year.

For now, I'm just glad to be back into the swing of things and I'm looking forward to spending more time on next week's post!

Ok, I lied.  I managed to fit in one more entry before heading off to Boston/Ireland.  The word mysterious instantly reminded me of this sketch I did for my dummy book Morose Molly Rose.  Can you take a guess at who she's about to run into?

Long time readers of this blog will know who Molly Rose is.  It all began with a poem, which you can read at my etsy shop.

That's about it.  Short and sweet.  See you on the other side :)
