The giant bent down 
and spoke softly to the girl,

“If this is but your dream little one, then please sleep a while longer. 
There is so much more I wish to see.” 

I just had to illustrate this lovely tiny story on hitRECord, and download the full-size illustration here.

Whatever, these guys were some prototypes for my holiday card this year, and while they didn’t make the cut, I couldn’t leave them out in the cold.

Should I stop typing before I make more bad puns? I think  I should. You can find these dudes here on hitRECord.

Some days, you just gotta clean out the scrap folder. And on those days, I usually like to post the less terrible scraps to hitRECord, which is what I did with these three little monsters.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been published

So remember when I wrote this piece a while back? It was intended as a submission to the hitRECorderly (which is something cool you should all check out) which just got published and the first batch of pre-orders got sent out. I was not among the pre-orders, but my friend Maura was, and she immediately e-mailed me this picture and IMed me “LOOK, YOU’RE PUBLISHED!!!!!” And yes, indeedy, there is an excerpt of my piece, printed in black and white! Or, well, red and white.

So yes, I’ve been published! And that honestly is not something I was expecting at all, which makes today officially count as A Good Day.
