This is a poster I did for my folk's shop near Mt. St. Helens, where Bigfoot has apparently been sighted several times. In fact, the shop even has a display of several Bigfoot footprint 'castings'.
You can see more about it here.
And a map with directions and phone number here.
You can camp out on the property and if you register the day before, do a glorious day hike up Mt. St. Helens and sit on the rim of the volcano.It's amazing. You can get directions to the trail and other info at the shop. Blair and Joyce Barner at North Fork Survivors have all the good stories and love company. So stop by for a visit if you're in the area!

As we move today toward ever more inclusive and progressive thinking- Obama and Clinton running for president- these historic turns are reminders of past struggles to current gains.

Today's NYT headlines that detainees being heldat Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for association with 9/11 could be up for the death penalty under the oft-questioned tribunal system. I have been present as courtroom artist at some of the tribunals-a slideshow of my experience outside of court was created and posted on Associated Press's ASAP a couple of years ago. You can see it here:

Today's NYT has an article about a Jewish principal improbably brought into a Bronx school that was deemed failing and violent. He has turned it around; read about it by cutting and pasting this link:
I had done this piece about the importance of education, and to those who have chosen to teach and love it, you have my great
respect and appreciation.

Yesterday got away from me, and I did not get a chance to upload my daily missive. So.. here's an homage to being spaced out-
a piece I did for Wizards of the Coast, Magic gaming card entitled 'Accerate Conflict'. Doing a variety of illustrative topics is pure joy. I'll dig up some Harry Potter projects and post those later.

This is a recently finished pc focusing on the meaning of Lent, or more specifically, on being willing to look hard at yourself by
giving up something you love for 40 days. I am not Catholic, but do believe in the idea of being open and willing to change, or better oneself- whether in a spiritual manner, or physically, or in laying the ego on the table and looking in the mirror.
