The last couple of weeks have been a ball. I took a much needed trip across the back roads of California, my destination being the winter forests of Yosemite and the streets of San Francisco – but finally I’ve returned, and I’m ready to dive back into work. Here’s something I did for my Tom Blackbird project.

That's so awesome. i love the old book look to it, with the library stamp and bookend label. I love library books, especially like these that get checked out llike crazy! (your book will be!) and I love to see how far back the stamp dates go, or when the last person to check it out was in 1968, or when you are the first to check out the book...great stuff.

1. I'm glad to hear that you had a great trip. You didn't come to Austin though. I forgive you.

2. HA! Love the posture of the bird... like the slightly less successful second cousin of Big Bird... life can be cruel when you are raised on top of a transformer.

I love this character, he has the feel of something magic... like Loki. He might be helpful, or he might pull a trick on you.
