Back at last...

Well, after battling the forces of Customer Service and Tech Support, my internet is back and I realized just how pathetic my life gets without internet, or maybe that should be the other way around...

Anywho, I've still been playing and making some things here and there. I'll post those pics shortly. In the meantime, I thought I'd show off my favorite muse, Casper the lovable maltese and four-legged vacuum cleaner.

Various character sketches

A lot of people ask where some of my clay character designs come from. Some pop into my head from out of nowhere, others have been sketched, doodled and drawn for years. Here are some of those doodlings...

Chicken Lips & Rocket Ships

It's here!! My newest book of children's poetry has arrived. "Chicken Lips & Rocket Ships" is now available on line at, Barnes&, and, or if you'd like a signed copy, you may get them through me as well.

This is my follow-up to my first book, "There's a Hippo in my Bathtub", another fun collection of children's poetry and illustrations.

Here's a sample from the new book...

Lactose-Intolerant Cow

I’m a lactose-intolerant cow,
Don’t ask me why,
Don’t ask me how.

Don’t tell me jokes,
Of the funny sort,
Because if I laugh,
I’ll begin to snort.

And if I snort,
My milk it blows,
Not through my udders,
But out my nose!*

Roll out the Valentine/Spring stuff...

I like my little snow "chunks", so they're winter carryover into Valentine's day and spring. Just a little sampling.

More spring cleaning...

Cleaning off the photo memory card in time for spring ....

Spring Cleaning pt 1

Well, I guess Christmas is over, or so I've been told from down here in my clay bunker (otherwise known as my basement), so I guess it's time to move on from snowmen, santas and ornaments into some other stuff. As I mentally try and gear up for Spring and all that that brings, here's an early 'spring cleaning' of project photos yet to make it off of my memory card.
