Going to camp and letters for Eduardo

Christmas has come and gone and so has Chloe. Gone to winter camp in the California Mountains, I  mean....


Here's Mike and Chloe waiting in the cold wind for the ride in downtown Phoenix. While they loaded the luggage a schizophrenic man that was wandering by in the street came over and loaded his imaginary suitcase, then he ran off chasing an invisible dog. (At least I think he was schizophrenic, perhaps he was a prankster).  Anyway, she'll be back by New Years, the same day Phoebe leaves for encampment with her Girl Scout troop.

In the mean time I've been busy making masks like this one....

And I just sold it from my shop!

 I've also been designing letters for a film called "Eduardo Munez" a dark comedy being filmed in the U.K. They need numerous interesting letters for use as props in the film.....

Anyway it's been a lot of fun making these!

We finally went out to the theater and caught the new Star Wars movie 2 nights ago. My kids had a good time and so did we! Have an excellent 2017.

Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas from Arizona

Today we're shopping, wrapping and my kids are still asleep at 11:00am (it's great having teenagers!)

Have a good holiday!

December Days


It's winter in the valley, which means our oranges are ready for picking, if only I could reach them! They hang precariously over the courtyard so it's a bit challenging.  Our days are full of driving in circles. Getting the kids to school, driving to the store, to teach, and all over town for my kids' very busy schedules.

Chloe was fabulous in her school's production "Midsummer/Jersey" a few weeks ago. In fact all the kids were great! It was marred by an unfortunate incident though. It was produced by the theater department at her school, but performed across town in the Phoenix Little Theatre (not at the school). Halfway through the second performance someone who works in the office at the school messaged the theatre teacher and director to say that this list of girls in the show will be dress coded if they don't change their tops! The whole show takes place on a beach on the Jersey Shore and some girls wore bikini tops. It was rather extreme to do this and stress all the actors out. I also feel that this kind of thing is out of place in an art school. In the visual arts department they have a nude figure drawing class. In the dance department all the kids wear leotards and tights and perform in skin tight outfits. This isn't a business school.


Hanukah is over and Christmas is coming up fast. Really, really fast. How does time just slip away so quickly? Anyway I'm teaching and selling art online. I have a new etsy shop to sell my masks:

I've been making a lot of them to stock my store and I've already made some sales (WhoHOO!)

This one just shipped to Minneapolis

And this one is getting shared and liked all over the etsy website!

Anyway Mike is finishing up his semester and grading finals as well as working on a new comic project called "I am The Barbarian". He has opened up a store for 2 of his most popular paintings....

Sesame Strange

And his other spoof of SpongeBob (which was featured on MTV's website for a while)....

SpongeBob Strange Pants and Friends

Anyway now these are on t-shirts and posters and other products that may be of interest!!

I hope everyone has a great holiday or at least pulls through in one piece. Peace, Joy and Namaste.











"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
