Yet benefiting for Stan Sakai

Stan Sakai created the character Usagi Yojimbo (1984).
I've only met him briefly at conventions but
the impact he has on my work is tremendous.
I like to think that a lot of Stan's creativity stems from
his relationship from his wife, Sharon.
 But now... (copied from the website) he is in need of some financial help after his wife, Sharon, who has suffered from a debilitating illness for quite a while now, had a long stay in the hospital. Sharon’s back home now, but she needs 24-hour in-home care and several costly medications. The Cartoon Art Professional Society, a group of comics creators, has organized an effort to help.
CAPS has organized an auction to benefit them.
 Here is my contribution to their auction:
Yes it is all about the love but
it's personal.

Next week,
it's back to the usual gang of Yets and
maybe a two-fer.

Do you hear what I here...?

...and that's what Christmas is all about.
Plus a special nod to Uncle Kelly.

This stuff really happens at
"Rocko's, the TreeWorld's Dancing Capital & Bar"

You have to watch your back all the time.

Saturday, December 7, 2013

Just say no!

More last call antics at
"Rocko's, the TreeWorld's Dancing Capital & Bar"
 This dialogue writes itself....
 At the end of the night, even a Yet needs
a protector!
You can tell when the fairies are drunk because
their wings get crumpled and soggy.

I like pie...I like cake....

When the Yets celebrate a birthday at
"Rocko's, the TreeWorld's Dancing Capital & Bar",
it turns into a three day dance party...

with a jam circle around the one who is celebrating the birthday.
By the way, the fairy did dance through the circle of Yets by Sunday evening.

Saturday, November 16, 2013


This is when the follows (usually the girl) steals the dance from their lead
(usually the guy).
 This happens when the fairies drink too much at 
"Rocko's, the TreeWorld's Dancing Capital & Bar!"

Saturday, November 9, 2013

Don't let them drink, for pity's sake!

Some nights at
"Rocko's, the TreeWorld's Dancing Capital & Bar!"
 You have to beware of drunk driving on the dance floor,

...and off the dance floor!

She doesn't even spill her drink

Is it a mark of confidence when you can dance with your drink, or
is it just boredom?

Origins Game Fair 2014

I've been meaning to post the piece for Origins.
It's for the "War College" in the Convention Program Book.
 Here is the approved sketch.
Here is the final, painted illustration.
"Learn the Rules of War Before You Play!"

Costume night at Rocko's!

Since the Treeworld doesn't celebrate Halloween,
(but they do have a holiday for dead people, Yet that's another story...)
 "Rocko's, the TreeWorld's Dancing Capital & Bar!"
had its annual costume night!

Rocko got into the act with Rachael...
Then this happened to Rachael...
moments later I think he fell.

Saturday, October 26, 2013

It's starting get wild!

Another normal Thursday at
 "Rocko's, the TreeWorld's Dancing Capital & Bar!"

 Dan lost his new hat while Rachael let her hair down,
by the end of the evening, 
even Rocko and Rachael
were on fire!

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Hey! None of that!

Meanwhile at the dance hall, Rachael the fairy, took charge
when the drunks came out.
This happened near the end of the evening.

Two fast sketches

Here's a couple of swing dancers,
a fairy and her partner
 having fun.

It's amazing how her feet barely touched the dance floor.
They told me that their names are,
Dan & Rachael

YET, The Philhamonic's 100th Anniversary

So, here is the piece of Yet art I did back in April. It was auctioned off (along with 25 other fantastic pieces) to support our local Philharmonic. 
It went for 500 bucks.
The title is, "Are We in Tune, Yet?"

Dancin' Dwarves!

Just another normal night out  dancing...

I admit I didn't know those mining folk could Lindy Hop,
 yet the two drunks were more fun to watch.

Dragon Con 2013!

Here are the photos from Dragon*Con,
remember I was in the art show where you were not allowed to take photos!
So here are the photos from the costume party and travels!

Here is an overall view of 1/4 of the costume party one hotel.

 Classic costumes

 Classic games

 The fourth Doctor...photobomb!

 Amazing hand made chain mail.

Madame Darth.

but not too scary.

Gavin Johnson!
 I would hate to have to work security at the show...
 Lots of friendly folks!
 Sweet dreams!


…and big thanks to my fans!  During the art show I did not display the names for my prints so when the voting occurred, the judges didn’t know which pieces you (the fans) had voted for!
So you told them so I could receive the following award!  

Tanks' from me and the YETS!
Enough bragging, I guess it is time to get back to the drawing board.

San Diego Comicon-2013!

Here are the photos from the adventure in San Diego!
This is Daniela, one of the Yets' biggest fans! 
She helps watch my booth on Sunday!
Cap'n Crunch was on guard too!
The crowds were BIG!
Adventure Time was all the time while setting up.

Lego sculptures are always cool!

I snuck pictures of the Chuck Jones Gallery.
This is a sketch Chuck did on the door in the gallery, 
it is about five feet high.
 If you like animation art, check out this gallery.
I explored San Diego with Suze, Ilse, and Janna(the photographer)!
 Major exploring in the La Jolla cave!
...and next year I am moving out of the small press
and into the illustrators area.
I will be in a booth with "Odd Fae designs"
 This is a sketch drawn with ball-point pen on the plane to San Diego,
in my 5.5"x8.5" sketchbook.

Always flyin' Yet First Class!
