LA Illustration
Should we make the guy on the desk float? Nope, leave him as he is.
I just did this illustration for the LA Times.  It’s a fun story about a guy renting a sleazy office in Hollywood.  You can read the story here.  Featured in the story is Roscoe’s house
of Chicken N Waffles
, a landmark I guess of LA.  I feel this is somehow related to Steve
Waxman’s post about chicken getting thrown at him.  Anyway it was an over-nighter and
I enjoyed the subject matter for this story.  My sketches were loose even by my standards.
Anyway, big thanks to for the hookup!
Finished art.

ok, dang, the square is back!
Kids love em!
Inspired by Randall's Flea post, I got inspired to create some special hors d'oeuvres for a little cocktail party I was having.  True, it's hard to find a
specialty market that carries the large sized fleas, # 12's I think, some leg work got me my fleas.  The guests loved them but I must admit they may have thought them shrimp.
Year of the Pig! Pig banned.
Where will the pig party now that he's banned?
The Chinese Government has banned the depiction of the Pig during the Chineses New Year, Year of the Pig.  It seems that 2% of China is Muslim and they did not want to offend them.  Seems even Muslims are confused by this Move: LINK
