Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I just finished moving from the Lower East Side to Midtown West. (My drawing above sorta' reminds me of my neighborhood.) I found a fab studio apartment for a great deal. I'm shocked, actually. All my books, art supplies, and furniture have been carted across town and hauled up four flights of stairs. I hope to post pics of the new space soon...once the sea of boxes part to reveal a path to the promise land! FREEEEEEDOMMMMM... to decorate however I want! All my "ironic" kitsch treasures will crawl out of their hiding places and perch themselves proudly upon every surface, shouting "Unite! Unite! 'Good' taste shall be undone!" I will sit and lovingly admire each and every one of them, from detached baby doll heads to shiny, saucer-eyed fawns to plastic-molded, cartoon figurines. They will rally around me and serve as my minions. I can't wait. (Actually, I like good taste too, but bad taste makes me laugh.)
More cartoons to come...

Cutesypoo (go see her fun creations) tagged me earlier this week. To show I appreciate the love, I'm gonna play...
1.) Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2.) Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3.) Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4.) Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.
Here we go...
1.) As a kid I drew LOTS of dragons. (Here's another one up above.)
2.) I have so many allergies I might as well live in a bubble.
3.) My day job is creating these crazy backgrounds for a kid's show.
4.) I like making cards for people, especially people who I know will appreciate them.
5.) I didn't learn how to drive until I was 21. (I was a spazz behind the wheel.)
6.) I like grapes, pineapple and kiwi fruit, but I hate cucumbers, green peas, and celery.
7.) I'd secretly love to be a gifted chef like Remy the rat in Ratatouille (an amazing film), but I just don't have the drive –or time –or space.
Here's who I am tagging: (sorry!)
1.) Dave DeGrand, who is an amazing cartoonist whose doodles never fail to crack me up
2.) BIG AL'S SPOT, where Al Pardo animates funny characters
3.) D'Home, home of Stephen D'Andrea, the world's most talented teacher
4.) Kansa-Shite, where a cool fashion student named Gilda muses about the world
5.) Tirui, because her designs are great and she's cool
6.) Misadventures of Dee, because she's an awesome background designer
7.) The Ward-O-Matic, even though I'm sure Ward doesn't have the time
