2011 Christmas card

2011 Christmas card

The title of this hand-drawn open edition card is “Above the Christmas Tree”. Initially this card was intended to represent the view of a Christmas tree from above. The center point is a treetopper star and the circle forms are the tree. My four-year old daughter simply said it was a star. Now there’s some […]

Here’s my two comments: post oneI had problems with The Dark Knight. Don’t get me wrong, it was a very good movie, but I felt they were trying excessively hard […]

Optimus Prime will throw a Decepticon through those columns resulting in the building falling on top of them. Then the Decepticon will rise up through the rubble […]

Moloch Horridus

Moloch Horridus

Let’s continue the desert theme. Meet the Moloch Horridus. I’m not giving his common name because I don’t want to receive weird spam messages from spambots. It lives in the Outback of Australia.

Last night I had a dream that I was an Autobot. I was with Optimus Prime when he was negotiating with Megatron via satellite feed about freeing some astronauts that the Decepticons held captive on the Earth’s moon. Of course we began to learn this was going to be a giant ambush and Prime and […]
