The very first Angry Clobber Monkey figures have arrived! Here in the back of my car these are just a few that I am customizing for Comic Con San Diego. It is reassuring that they are finally on there way! I'll have some pics of the customs as the are done!

Had a great time at the Rivet Gallery last weekend. Laura and Scott were fantastic hosts, and the gallery space is amazing. I met a slew of talented local artists, Columbus Ohio has a thriving arts culture in the Short North district. Every first weekend of the the month there’s a arts festival. The crowd was thick and partied late into the night. Not me though, I'm old and went to bed early. Although I had a great surprise visit from my Mom & her husband Jeff, who drove 6 hours from Chicago just to see my little show.

Me and Laura! Pretend my eyes are open.

Scott checking out the careful precise positioning of my sculptures.

Me an' Scott!

If you are in the Columbus area, or just in the midwest it’s worth the trip! Also check the art that is still available from the show, and they have an amazing show coming up next month! I will be returning! Thanks again to the whole Rivet Gallery crew!

So it always seems I have several secret projects up my sleeve at any given moment.
Waiting for the right time to reveal them is always tricky, or sometimes I just have to wait until the press release hits the news:

Nickelodeon Greenlights Two Animated Comedy Series,
Planet Sheen and T.U.F.F. Puppy

Plus, Network Picks Up Three Pilots, The Fleeps, Robot & Monster: Best Friends Forever and You’re a Bad Man, Mr. Gum

“Nickelodeon’s newly ordered pilots will be overseen by Birkner Rawlings, who has just been promoted to Vice President, Animation Development, for Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group. They include Robot & Monster: Best Friends Forever, a buddy comedy featuring a relentlessly ambitious robot and a pathologically positive monster. The project was created by Dave Pressler (Los Luchadores!), Jeffrey Ventimilia (That ‘70s Show), Joshua Sternin (That ‘70s Show) and will be directed by feature animation veteran Sam Levine.”

To read the whole release check out this link: Toon Zone News

For the last year or so I’ve been having a great time working with Nickelodeon, Birk (And The whole team), Josh & Jeff and most recently Sam developing my little guys Robot & Monster into a very funny animated comedy. It’s going to be a very busy summer working on the pilot, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it! I’ll have more reports as they come along.
