The Daily ZooMart: Now Open!

Greetings, folks. Just wanted to let you know that after much procrastination, I bowed to popular demand and now have a webstore up and running: The Daily ZooMart. There you can find DZ t-shirts for men, woman, children, and infants as well as notecards and prints. Prints are available of any of the DZ characters.

You can also order both Daily Zoo books. As always, I'm happy to sign them and do any animal sketch you might request.

Currently I'm busy working on my next book, MY Daily Zoo, a drawing activity book for all ages due to be published in May 2011. I hope to post the cover and some preview images soon.

Until then, be well and draw, draw, draw!

A Real Wiener...

Happy 2011 everyone!

I just noticed that I made 26 posts to this blog last year. I had no idea I was so proficient! Just kidding. Sort of. I was actually surprised that I had posted that many times, but I also realize that I will not be nominated for the Blogging Hall of Fame any time soon. I will try to populate this corner of cyberspace with more news and, more importantly, more images in the coming year.

To start things off, below is a Daily Zoo piece that is hot off the press. You might even call it a hot dog. Ba dum bum. See why I don't blog more often?

In another case of unexpected Hollywood connections, it turns out that the banker who helped me set up an account last summer has the dual alter-egos of a film producer and screenwriter. One of his upcoming projects at Fromage Pictures is a film called Wiener Dog Nationals and he asked if the Daily Zoo had any resident dachshunds yet. It didn't, so I remedied the situation on Monday. Enjoy - and I'll see you in a few months for my next post. :)

Oh, and for those interested in the media used, it was watercolor, Tria design markers, Prismacolor Col-erase pencils and watercolor colored pencils, Faber-Castell Polychromos and Pitt Pastel pencils, and a little bit of a General's Draughting pencil. And of course eye of newt.
