A Christmas Commission
I had some extra time in the schedule to create this drawing for a family who recently bought their first home. I certainly hope they cherish it for years as it felt good to give a gift through my talents to a stranger this Christmas.

Having been as busy as I've been these past few weeks, squeezing in deadlines and three projects at once - naturally, I made it to the new exhibit at the Museum of Science in Boston. Stephanie and I had the most fun animating the famous Pixar Luxo Lamp! I also got a chance to pose with Wall-E just as one of my most cherished idols, John Lasseter did just weeks before. "You look like you already work here!", Stephanie told me when referring to the Pixar company. Here is a tribute to just that!
They were pleased with the outcome!
It is now voting time for my Squishable design. My Sunflower will appear on the Squishable website in this weeks batch of contestants. Rate the design a 5 and it'll get the average it needs to become a real plush! VOTE HERE!

I'm now introducing a new unique idea soon to be available via our website. Stephanie and I are working together on a project different than other small businesses. Now, HavetoHave sounds pretty self explanatory; though when discovering the Stationary, custom designs, and other products found on the website, things may truly connect with your heart. You just might say, "I have to have this!"
Though these are not yet finished, here is just a sample of our customized invitations:
Recently I've had the time to submit my own deign to the Squishable "Open Squish" contest in which my Sunflower has been chosen to be up for voting in Autumn, 2015. We hoped and prayed it would be picked to move forward and it has! Make sure to vote in order to make this simple drawing into a full- fledged plush product. Check out Squishable.com
With Valentine's Day on it's way, Stephanie and I put together some different ideas for cards. With her ideas, and my illustrations, the end results are on the way soon.
