Born and raised near Chicago as a free roaming child. The outdoors was where most of the day was spent and nature was the canvas that could be changed everyday.

Afternoons and evenings were spent watching Monsters, Muppets, and cartoons, and inspired countless imaginative marvels and escapades. One day you might be having tea with an invisible man or heading to Hollywood with a banjo playing frog or steamboat steering mouse, the next might be spent running from tripods in London or giant pterodactyls in Tokyo.

Nowadays, when not not traveling in a TARDIS, visiting the 999 Happy Haunts, or sending a card to the Other Mother, time is spent educating and designing.
Some of you may have noticed that the last few submissions have been related to Middle-Earth.

There's a good reason for that.

I've started a new blog, with my brother, called "Field Guide to Literary Creatures," as we both have always been absolutely inspired by and drawn to the fantastic creatures that haunt the pages of literature. Sometimes we never get to see these creatures, but our imaginations create them in our mind's eye.

I see this as a chance to do two things:
1) share the amazing books, novels, and short stories that I have loved and grown up with
2) share my art and the creatures that live in my mind

So take a look here:

. . .and when you're done, go grab a cup of tea, a blanket, and a good book, and get lost in another world.

What would you consider the best of "modern" Sesame Street? (season 21 to current season)

That's a tough question, indeed. Let me mull that one over.

"Mull"? What's that mean?

Like mulled cider, let it sit to for a while, in this case think about it a bit. There are some great moments.

Hey I got a question. From one Muppet fan to another, what did you think of the new 2011 Muppets movie?
Gr8Gonzo Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Professional General Artist
Honestly, it just didn't quite work for me. Call me a muppet purist, but the humor, respect, and decency of the characters was sacrificed for cheap laughs and new unnecessary characters. I really felt like it was the Jason Segel movie guest starring the Muppets. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the movie did as well as it did, but it just didn't feel like The Muppets to me. It had its moments of nostalgia, which worked well, but had no lasting appeal.
