Museum of Alligatorid Crocodylians

Finally got to do my first intaglio etching! Been wanting to do one for many years. Love the way the excess ink looks. Couldn't find an etching press to use anywhere accept in the Utrecht store.

Edgar Allan Poe Jack O' Lantern

Did this one in record time. Notice the ravens on either side of his head. Made some really good pumpkin seeds too: paprika, old bay and salt.

Goodbye Bert Jansch

Tonight we must say goodbye to Bert Jansch, the man who got me interested in British Isle folk. I just played Blackwaterside on the guitar in his honor. Probably the best guitarist I have ever heard on record. Highly recommend LA Turnaround. Produced by Michael Nesmith with great pedal steel by him. Sad day indeed.

Elwood Snock & The Land of Lo-Fi!

My friends in the Bay area have gotten a whizbang website together pertaining to their Michael Hurley documentary Elwood Snock & The Land of Lo-Fi, which I created many an animated scene for. Before you can all see the movie, they are raising money to pay for the rights to music in the film, so head on over there and sponsor a song!
