I've been doing a lot of aimless wandering lately. You see I'm in the process of writing a new chapter book set on the bizarre highways and byways of America, so my research has taken me all over the area in search of strange little towns and attractions.
On Monday I stumbled upon this monolithic oddity high in the mountains. It's a place called the Palomar Observatory, and I can't express the feeling of awe and wonderment it inspired. Legend has it the creator, an eccentric astronomer named George Ellery Hale was told to build the observatory by little green elves.
Here's something from my ongoing Tom Blackbird project.

Here's a sketch Kelsey Mann did of Josh and me. If you guess which is which I'll give you a special prize!
Here's the latest edition to my ongoing series of Customizing Monster Kit characters. Personally I would love to see this guy made into a really cheap action figure and sold at a run down swap meet. I guess a guy can dream, right?

I present another print you can find at the convention. It showcases my fear of feral cats, especially the enormous man eating kind!
I present a shirt I made which, if your interested, you can purchase. If you've never been to Aguanga, CA you should definitely go. They have great apple pie and lots of abandoned barns to look at!

The most important bit of news for the month features the all mighty Con! This will be the first time brother Josh Parpan and I will be selling our work and kid friendly merchandise at the convention, so come and visit us at the Goblin Fish Press table. I have to admit I’m really going to miss being apart of the great migration of SciFi and Comic book nerds traveling the tables, but I guess you can’t have it all. So if you’re going to be in attendance this year come and say hello, I'm looking forward to meeting you all. Here’s one of the Monster prints I’ll be selling. As the great Con approaches I’ll be posting images of all our merchandise!
Since Goblin Fish Press launched its very first line of Terrible T-Shirts we’ve become a smash hit in Central America, selling our awful shirts to children throughout
This month I’ve also been busy at work developing some ideas for potential book projects. This is from a story about a fire breathing elephant named Aku.
Lastly I wanted to thank my talented pal David Sones for awarding me a Thinking Blogger Award. My posting lately has become less frequent and this award fills me with a tremendous amount of guilt. I’ll try harder David, I promise.

Okay, so Ive been a complete jerk, I ditched you for months and months and for that I'm sorry. My excuse is this, I blame my hiatus from the wonderful world of blogging on my shiny new day job -- here's a link where you can check out some of the work Ive been doing with the fine folks at Painted-Words
To buy back your trust and respect I present this fun and colorful illustration of a food product that doesn't exist. I promise I'll never leave you again.
