Happy Holidays!

(Ok, so it's a bit late for some holidays but I think there's still a couple days left in Hannukah and Kwanzaa so neener)

On Christmas Day, I went down to Carlsbad to visit family with Mad and that was much fun. We put together a gingerbread house from a kit with some of the kiddos and ate a lot and then watched "Elf." Much hilarity!

Mad is most wonderful. She got me Season 1 of the Muppet Show, the DVD of Dave Barry's Guide to Guys (quite hilarious, but too short in my opinion. Even so... go get it!), and a telescope! Yes, an actual telescope! Wow! Granted, here in L.A., there's a lot of light pollution, but you can still peek at some close objects. We put it together and peeked at a couple stars. Lately, it's been kind of cloudy, but I want to check out the moon and maybe Mars. Anyway, Aprille's the greatest. She spoils me! :)

Anyway, for New Year's Weekend, we're driving up to San Luis Obispo for a weekend getaway thingy.

Deathtöngue: Pimples from Hell

Here's my last Graphic Design assignment: Create a CD trifold thingy. I chose to do Berke Breathed's Deathtöngue (later renamed Billy and the Boingers) album from his Bloom County strip ca. 1986.

Dave Barry for President!

Here at last is the T-shirt design. I'm sending a pair of T-shirts to Dave and Judi.


Saw it on Higgy's blog, so I just had to do it. You should do it too!

Draw yerself a Pig!
It will reveal secrets of your innermost psyche!


Well, I'm done with another semester of school at East Los Angeles College. In the Spring, I'll be going back to Los Angeles Community College, because it's closer to work and I won't have to mangle my work schedule. I got an A in Graphic Design I, and I think an A in Drawing II, maybe an A-. However, the teacher liked some of my stuff enough to put it in next semester's student art show. She picked my final project where I drew a portion of my cluttery bedroom, mostly a big bookcase, and a color picture we did in class with pastels (an interesting medium; very messy). Also she picked my teapots, which I didn't think were all that good. I would have chosen my self-portrait (see below) but hey, whatever. Anyway, I took some pictures, and I'll post em once I get em downloaded. Also, of course, I'll post the Dave Barry for Prez T-shirt design as well as my CD cover: "Deathtöngue: Pimples from Hell."

OK, I better behave and get offline.
