We had so much fun during their visit. I was happy that I was able to spend so much time with them. They are all so much fun to be around! We went to the parks, ate lots of good food, watched a lot of Thomas the Tank Engine, etc. I miss them so much!
Earlier this afternoon I started feeling kind of ill - stomachwise - I hope I'm not coming down with anything. Theodore was sick for a day, I hope I didn't catch anything. If I did, I hope I feel a lot better soon - I'm going to be leaving this weekend for Larry Elmore's artist retreat in Kentucky! I need to go buy my paints for the retreat - he's going to try to convince me the virtues of oil paints - we'll see how it goes ;P I'm pretty loyal to acrylics, personally. I used oils for a few years back when I was a teenager, but once I switched acrylics I kinda stuck with them. Well, we'll see =P
Now onto the ART! Original drawings, with a special bonus! Here's the deal - I recently licensed some of my paintings for designs on Zippo lighters (awesome metal lighters, highly collectable, refillable, last forever). They wanted some "lineart" (ie, simpler drawings) based on some of my popular paintings, so I did some pen & pencil sketches for them to use in production. So I have a few original drawings available (very rare for me!). These auctions are for "Licorice Fairy" and "Devilish Fairy". There will be more to come. The winner of each auction gets the original drawing AND the corresponding ZIPPO lighter, fresh from the factory.
Here are links to the very special auctions!:

Also - Hot Topic has been putting more of my licensed merchandise up on their website - you can see that stuff here:
Bleah, I'm going to go lay down for awhile. I have a new painting I want to work on - I might try to get some work done later tonight, I'll see how I feel....
