My friend Nicole wrote yesterday "My little girl went to a bed with a worried and broken heart because her kitty didn't come last night when she called. For 7 years he has always come when called but not last night...I had heard coyotes on the hill earlier that evening and wasn't hopeful. The Lord has shown His kindness to my little girl this morning, Luigi came strolling up on the deck about 6:30
 this morning (after I had been praying for hours) asking to come in, ate, and then begged to go back out 15 min. later... :/ I made him go in and say hello to Alia. She smiled the biggest smile and went back to sleep. My mama heart is much better this morning." and I wanted to draw it. I kept thinking of focusing on the little girl. or the cat being scared out of its nine lives, but then I thought of not the subject, but the one who answers prayers-- how many times God has powerfully intervened behind the scenes and we think it was all us... (ps-- this is an angel not God... I wouldn't presume to draw Him)

Yesterday I got a text. "Phil and I are engaged!!!" she came into my life as a result of one of those "I have a friend who's an astronaut and his daughter wants to be an animator would you show her around"...okay-- not a typical introduction, but then again, neither would be our friendship, Ive shown quite a few kids around the studio, but only been friends with this lovely and talented woman Jessica...even though she lives in the far off land of Colorado, I have kept up with her these last six or seven years and the moment I saw Phil in a picture, I figured this just may be the one... he looked like someone she would draw--. Congratulations Phil and Jessica!

Road Hazzards

Today my friend wrote in her status update "Living in the southwest means always having sand and gravel in your shoe. I run on asphalt and concete sidewalks. But it never fails that by the half mile mark, I feel all sorts of sand in my sock. I have no idea how it gets in there."

Dead Mouse Laying

From my friend's FB status yesterday "I just cleaned out a dead mouse from my room...I am legitimately freaked out and for the moment don't even want to get off of my bed..."

Someone once described my friend Eric as "Bulky" and it made me chuckle.. Bulky is what they call broken down sofas or old refrigerators that you leave in front of your house for special pick up on trash collection day. And yes, he and his girlfriend dress alike. 

A few days later, I saw them at a get together, they were so flattered they dressed like the picture I had drawn of them and asked me to photo them in the same pose. He said, "Thanks for making me look like Mr. Incredible...  as you see, I didn't really have that far to go.  Awww. So flattering.

Circus Dreams

I just found out one of the people in my physical comedy class got accepted into Ringling Brother's clown school She's a blast to work with, wow-- one day when I go to the circus I just may see her there. Regardless of whatever one feels about clowns, thats kinda fun to think about--someone on their way to follow a way out there dream.

Deviled Airline

Most people take notes during the sermons at church... I draw mine. Today our pastor was teaching out of Ephesians 5 and call for sexual purity. even though it was a heavy subject, he made this comment and so I doodled a picture of it... thankful that though God calls us to a standard of purity, He calls us there with grace to forgive us for our sins and hope found at the foot of the cross.

Tom Cruise Makes Me Cry

"So shines a good deed in a weary world"  Merchant of Venice

There are moments so beautiful, they are impossible to describe. Words don't do them justice. Such as was this night I was working late, and had the netflix going as I cleaned up Sofia the fist story book panels.  To keep myself from being distracted I was "watching" MI 3.  When Tom broke into his signature run I posted on Facebook and what happened next was strangely communal, beautiful, touching and heart felt... who'd knew that a few small words could bring a surprising flush of tears?

Well, when the sweet tears had run its course, it wasn't too long before someone added "I think he must have it in every contract that he will have at least one scene in which he will be shown sprinting quickly toward the camera. (I'm serious!)"  Which inspired this drawing and comment

"I read somewhere that that Tom Cruise is now the same age Wilford Brimley was when the latter starred in Ron Howard's "Cocoon""

Oh Poo...

A teen aged friend of mine wrote oh her Facebook status this morning" Waking up to Disney music:)" To which I commented "Did several little birds wash your hair while mice laid out your clothes? Be careful, if the Bunnies made your breakfast--those aren't raisins in the cereal....


A friend of mine who's 6' tall works out, plans to climb Kilimanjaro this January and holds a respectable job as a science teacher in a local high school once told me he'd fallen asleep in a comfortable chair in the corner of his parent's living room. Upon waking up for some reason said "goo".... his little sister has not let him live it down since.... come to think of it, neither have I.

A Fond Farewell

My Roommate. Amanda. I did this on Nov 17 nearly a year ago, when she blew into my life looking like Barbara Striesand from "Whats up Doc." This is the way she looked when I picked her up at the Burbank Airport. This free spirited young woman with so many great questions and so much passion for life and today, with all of her earthly belongings packed in her tiny car, my gypsy spirited friend is moving onto a new chapter... i am so thankful God brought her into my life for though she left my spare room empty, she left my heart now full of adventure.

Trouble in Paranoia City

My friend works in the church library. He told me someone came in last week claiming a demon was going to take over the church... He also said that he was Bono.... well, I exaggerate. it was actually his wife that said all these things. The man said nothing: he was incognito.
