I now spend every waking moment in some museum in New York city. Not sure how this happened but it did. Yesterday I was at the Museum of Natural History. I sat in front of this coyote to draw. He was part of a big diorama. All of a sudden a big tour group came up behind me. They had a serious guide dude with a uniform, headset and speaker. He said, as he pointed to me, "this artist here is sitting in front of the best backdrop painting in the entire museum." Apparently the guy who painted it was their greatest scenic painter ever. It took him 11 months just to do that one background painting. You can see every leaf, the detail of the bark, every pebble and on and on. It is amazing I can assure you. The coyote was by a stream in Yellowstone Park at midday. When the museum first opened they begged him to stop doing the painting. It looked fine in their minds. He would have none of that. He kept delaying the opening until this one backdrop was perfect and it is. If eventually I have to be stuffed. Please put me in that case next to the coyote.

On my recent drawing jaunt to the Met, I drew in the religious sector. Baby Jesus always looks like he is 40 years old. It's always a little man in Mary's arms or arm in some cases. I would like to draw more of these because there were some crazy carvers back then. Some of the statues are totally out of whack. I dig that though.

You can now buy my famous squirrels stickers in my ETSY store. They are 5 and a half inches by 4 inches. A good size to stick around your neighborhood. Great for skateboards and notebooks. These will help you become the coolest nerd in your hood. A steal at 3 bucks.
