Happy Birthday to my brother!

There’s a bit more to tell about this drawing. I drew a lot of little dog and cat characters in the late 70s and very early 80s, still in grade school. I also had a mouse and bird character, seen here too. The cat’s name was Oglevie..no idea where I got that name…and the bird’s name was Elmo. This was long before Elmo Monster trashed Sesame Street, but oddly enough, the bird was red. I am drawing a blank on the mouse and dogs’ names.

Another Birthday Card.

Another friend(part of the previous couple featured in yesterday’s cards) had a birthday,so I wanted to make sure she had a handmade card,too. TheĀ backstory on this card is hearing this couple and their hilariously gleeful schemes to keep their two teen boys off their computers playing video games for too long. šŸ™‚


Both Shops Running!

Whew, I am whipped. I’ve been working on Etsy stuff all day. I finally got my shop open, so if you look to the right, there, if you’re on a laptop, you can see my regular shop plus my Etsy shop links to click. If you don’t see those, go to to the “Shop!” link in the menu at the top of the page and that will get you there, too.

On a goofier note..

Experienced the most amazing “Leeeroy Jenkins” moment. While I was driving, a guy in a rather douchey little noisemaker car a few cars ahead of me decided to go ripping through a (green) traffic light at ludicrous speed so his car would make the most noise or something. Well, his car stalled out about halfway through, he skidded to a stop, and so did all the rest of us.


Dammit, Leroy.
