I've made a new discovery. Paper that is an actual thin veneer of real cherry wood with a mounted back. Very expensive. Four bucks for an 8 1/2 X 11 inch sheet. I wanted to see what it would be like to draw on. My first attempt on it came out pretty damn good. I will be doing more of these. I found other types of wood paper too. I put this original up for sale in my ETSY store. Get it quick.

Illustrator Michele Melcher drew my new portrait that I have been using all over the internet. She has created something called, The Unselfie Project. Instead of you posted a dumb selfie, she creates a portrait for you to post all over your social media nonsense. You send her a photo and she does a cool illustration of you and e-mails it back to you. Simple. 30 bucks for a B&W or 50 bucks for color. http://www.michelemelcher.com/

Yun's grandma flies around our apartment on her walker. I'm convinced she doesn't need it anymore. She can out race me which isn't saying much. Grandma's grandson, Hyun, lives in Seattle. He happens to be a displaced Patriots fan. One of his son's, Logan, is a Seahawks fan. Next weekend will decide if Seattle faces the Patriots in the Super Bowl. I don't think grandma gives a crap either way. She is too busy running around like Marshawn Lynch.

People always want to know what is up with me and the SQUIRRELS. It comes from the fact that I always keep things clean and tidy. If I am cleaning, vacuuming or straightening picture frames, my wife will always poke fun at me. She refers to what I am doing, as "squirrel activity." She says I look like a squirrel that is darting back and forth across a busy road without getting hit by a car.

As a little kid, my dream was to be an illustrator for a big time newspaper. At a very early age, I accomplished that goal. By 22, I was the illustrator for the Buffalo Evening News. My work was quite sophomoric and funny, nothing of substance or importance. It was such a rush to buy the morning paper and see my name next to all the illustrations. I had the privilege to see what it was like up close and personnel at a major American newspaper. So when I heard the news of the cartoonists in France being assassinated, I was deeply moved. It's true the pen can be mightier than the sword. I recently saw an HBO documentary about the political cartoonist, Herbert Block. It is worth watching and I highly recommend it. It shows the power of one man's little cartoons and the incredible impact they had on American politics and the course of our history. Herbert was a modern day, Thomas Nast. The illustrators of the world have sharpened their pencils and won't be deterred.
