Unlikely Family at the World's End

They were each allowed a single toy on this very last outing. Inexplicably, three of the four chose their Cher Ami dolls, remembering fondly the story of the famed homing pigeon which had been trained by American pigeoneers and who helped save the Lost Battalion of the 77th Division in the battle of the Argonne, October 1918. Unlike the others, Little Brandolin hated birds, and any mention of C. Ami cause him to break out in hives. He chose his simple yet buoyant model sailboat. Together with Padre Firebrand and Captain Beaulardon they formed an unlikely family, who with little emotion, watched the final moonrise.

H.V. avec des Lunettes de la Science

"Science goggles--is there no limit to their awesome power?"
--Stephen Heintz
"Acid Zen Wonderpaint"

This is a self portrait I did a few years back as a nod to the genius that is Acid Zen Wonderpaint.  I'm not even sure if Stephen Heintz is still turning out his amazing drawings.  If not, then I ask you to take a look through his works of yore.  So many of them are still in the bucket of my most favorite things ever.  Enjoy.

Website of the Day! has selected my website as their website of the day for February 14!  I'm pretty proud of it, so if you have a chance go take a look around.  It's fun and interactive with lots of slide shows and some strange accompanying music. 

Sorry for the lack of posts.  I spent much of March sick with some respiratory plague.  I had no creative energy at all.  Hoping to make it up to everyone with lots of new pieces.

Happy Spring!
