little kid sketches


I recently had the chance to play around a bit, in between jobs, and came up with this little guy.  Let's call him Andy.

Make your own Kitanai!


With work officially ‘all wrapped up’ on my latest children’s book series, featuring Kitanai the Origami Dog. I wanted to send out little thank you notes to those individuals that made these books possible. These guys are shipping out today! I also wanted to share instructions for making your own origami puppy. Please send any pics of your creations, I would love to be able to post your submissions!

Happy Halloween 2014!


My Sister and I created this image for my nephew’s recent birthday party.  His favorite holiday is Halloween. How COOL is that?  Everyone was encouraged to come in fanciful costume and I thought it would be fun to share today.  Happy Halloween from the whole wild gang!

an unlikely, though welcome homecoming :)

Our new house in Cleveland Heights, about half way in between Cedar Lee & Coventry.


Spirited Fall hiking at nearby Chagrin Falls, with lots of muddy paws.

Brad and the Boys along the trail at Chagrin Falls.

The Cedar Lee Marquee, my favorite place in town.

Halloween 2014

Well we've packed up the circus and moved back to Ohio!  My partner Brad is going to med school in the area and I came along for the ride.  We've been away for a few years, but something about this place feels like coming home– always surprising for this native Floridan.  We have a history in Cleveland, we both started out here after school, met in '03 (had coffee at Stone Oven on our first date), and welcomed the crazy dogs into our lives a few years later.  Thankfully, very little has changed in the neighborhood and I suspect you'll be hearing more about it in future posts. In the meantime, it's been a fun couple of months catching up with friends and visiting the old favorite spots. Hope your Fall is a colorful one too.

You Can't Take It With You (odds & ends)








The show officially opened this week and it's all ready making fireworks on Broadway! These Sycamore family possessions were created to assist with television and web marketing and seem like a good indication of a pretty fun and wild show!

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

You Can't Take It With You Playbill

The coolest thing to happen in a long time.

I just about fell out of my bed tonight when Jimmy Fallon held up the You Can't Take It With You Playbill!  As kids, I can still remember sneaking out to watch the Tonight Show with my sister Sarah and my cousin Josh. Never in a million years would that little 6-year-old me expect to see his illustrations grace the Tonight Show desk. This business isn't always easy and these moments don't happen very often, but I'm almost tearful tonight, feeling so lucky and thankful.
