Jungle Fabric

International Quilt Market

2009 was the last time I attended the International Quilt Market and I have missed all the great people I met in previous years at the show! Over the past five years has been focused on my advertising illustration, but over this time I have also been doing a lot of sewing with my daughter! :) All those sewing projects with her, have re-ignited my desire to be designing fabric again.

Boogie Monster Fabric

Pillowcases, monster fabric, monsters, boogie monsters

This is a pillow case made with my Boogie Monster Fabric by SewMeSomeHappy on Etsy. Love the stuffed Monster she designed!


Cranky Croc
This Cranky croc is just a little grumpy and I am not sure why. I like to smile and enjoy life's every moment while always staying positive. Maybe drawing grumpy creatures and monsters is my way of expressing some of these emotions. Hmmm.

Primary Childrens Hospital

This is an illustration I created for Primary Children's Hospital(Wall Mural). I loved the way it turned out! I thought I would include the alien sketch with this Monster/Alien blog. :) I hope everyone loves it!


I love screaming Monsters.

Football is getting close!

Its football time! I love going to football games with my boys! Its fun to watch a game, but even better to watch my boys enjoy the snacks and food. FUN times! Go Cougars.

Another great Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is great! I drive our son around with the scouts as they set-up American flags around our neighborhood at 6:00am. It is a fun neighborhood tradition. Yes fireworks were fun, but the real highlight of my day was seeing our kids(and my sweet wife) use Pop-its in our own backyard trying to kill ants(we have had some ant problems in our house and yard-so my wife isn't a big fan of ants right now). I know. I can't believe I didn't participate either.....I was out of Pop-its and my kids weren't about to spare any. :)

Star Gazing

So, I can imagine sitting on the front porch looking at the stars and have this guy sitting next to you. I just thought this guy was cute.....even though he'll eat you for breakfast. :)

This is how I was feeling this morning, while I waited to start judging an art contest. I think the dose on my Thyroid pills need to be increased, because I am feeling a little sluggish recently. :)

Stepped on

I just don't know?

The Adventures of Two Eyes and BlipBlop

Our hero's, Blipblop and Two eyes, are in trapped! Blipblop isn't doing well after the SuperSoak cycle. His best friend, Two Eyes, isn't doing much better. But Two-Eyes can't see his best friend suffer any longer. As the water begins to drain, Two-Eyes reaches deep within himself before the Spin Cycle begins and throws the door open! Now he is face to face with the evil Laundry Goons!

You gotta buy this thing kid!

Kid- "I'm sure it's a nice vacuum, but $2,700? Where did you say the three of you were from?"
This picture is NOT based on a true story and these characters are entirely fictional. My Target vacuum works just fine.

Zip and Lock and a warm cave

Zip and Lock have a warm cave the and their friendship. Ahhhhh.

It is cloudy outside and I am not a big fan of cloudy days. As I was drawing these two characters I thought about how grateful I am for my family. Because no matter what problems we may face and or how dark or scary life may seem, we always have our families. I am grateful for the happiness, light and peace that I feel at home with my family.

Ridiculous looking hair cut

The new hair cut was absurd. "Quig" was ready to get away and explore the desert water hole.  It jumped in the water hole and was never seen or heard from again. The end.

Diabetic Numbers

A friend of mine called me up and asked if I would participate in a focus group about Diabetes. I love talking about my personal experiences with Diabetes and letting people know that you can live a normal life with it....if you manage it and take care of it! It was fun! As we were wrapping up the discussions I had to draw some Number Monsters on my cards! :)
