I am working on a few things, . . . hope to finish soon.I sent John, my brother, a couple of toys for Bebe, his Brussels Griffon on his birthday the other day.

OCT 2010October is here and the season is cooling things down, even though here in san francisco it seems like summer is just starting. We are finally getting some warm days we should have had 3 months ago . . . ah well, such is life here in SF.I'm jazzed for the halloween vibes coming up, (already here in places) - I was browsing my photo box in search of images for an interview i had last week. Found Mr. Pumkin head below - When I was working freelance at the Sony Metreon downtown, 2000-2005 . . . I often painted props for the Sendak 4th floor. this little image below was a foam-core cutout (about 3ft. high) in a halloween corner we did for the kiddies to get a little spooked. . . .

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals.
