Yeah, yeah, I know most of the US would LOVE to have 51 degrees and sunshine in the afternoon right now, but to us Floridians, it's FREAKIN' COLD!!!! So, in honor of that, I went and found this piece I did for a client back in December. Wanted to post it then, but was too slammed at the time (that's also why there were few if any updates here for a few months!). Anyway, here's "Old MAn Winter".....

Once upon a time, my wife and I, and good buddy Ted Tucker, self published a comic book named "Lunar Donut". We learned a lot on that book, and were doing pretty well with it, getting fairly well known in the small press comics industry. As "known" as you could back then, in that industry, anyway. Life and the caricature business got too busy to continue publishing it, though. My how to draw Caricatures book is published through the Lunar Donut Press imprint so it's not really dead, after all, I guess. We might even resurrect the comics someday again, you never know.
Anyway, while Barbie and I were going through photo albums last night, we found this old publicity shot for Lunar Donut, that we used to run in the inside cover of the issues. This was about eleven years ago, to my reckoning. We thought you all might want to see it:

Another one from a recent live event. This guy was a lot of fun to draw and talk with. He got drawn by all three artists at the event, I believe. We call that being a "collector".
I like drawing stripes and patterns. Now, I personally, don't wear HORIZONTAL stripes.....

Well, we all knew it was going to happen. Just HOW SOON we didn't know! The other night at my 40th birthday get together, we mentioned to my eight year old daughter Brady how, since there were no other kids, she coudl set up and draw caricatures if she wanted...even put out a tip jar! Her eyes got big as saucers, and she ran over to the easel we had set up. She didnt' stop for hours! Here's a shot of her at work.
Oh yeah...the tips? She made $70!!!!

Well, it's my birthday today, the big 4-0. Yikes. Birthdays usually never phase me, but this one seems momentous, for some reason. I know it shouldn't, it's just a number. "You're only as old as you feel", yada yada yada....I know that. Plus, to be honest, I feel better than I have in years. So, it's all good.
Still SOUNDS pretty old, though.
I may be getting older, but I refuse to get OLD! I am a very blessed man with a beautiful wife I love more than ever, and two sweet, beautiful daughters.
This weekend my lovely bride threw me a party here at the house with a few friends over for poker, pool, and a little karaoke. It was a great time. Here's a pic of us being serenaded by Jeremy and Shalisa James, close friends and famous acapella singers (ToxicAudio.com....check em out!).
