howdy all!

sorry i've been absent, in addition to being very busy, i've been pretty wiped out. fun!
so just something short and sweet.
last month was my twins' birthday, so i drew up a coloring/activity book for their class, then went in and read it. fortunately, i'm about as smart and lucid as a 4-year old, so it worked out really well.
it was based on a bunch of bedtime stories i made up for them (the batman/cinderella team-up stories were getting old). it's not shakespeare, but it put off the day day when they inevitable realize that i am an embarrassment. anyway, here are the first few pages:


i'm posting them (relatively) hi-res so you or your liked ones can also color them if you are bored and the tv is out or whatever.

my favorite part is the title lettering.

Ben, you really are too hard on yourself. Love your work. Really digging on the clouds in this one. I stumbled on you work in Ikea one day, a copy of Fantasy Cartooning someone used as a prop in a kids room example. I've been enthralled ever since.

Thank you for that gift. May you and yours have a most spectacular year!
