creepycollector asked:

Hi! I was just wondering if you'd be opening up mail out commissions anytime soon? I finally figured out what I'd really like to request. When you are, would you be up for drawing Mary (Hocus Pocus witch) riding on Kirby the vacuum from The Brave Little Toaster? I thought it would be funny to recreate that scene from the movie with him in it instead.

Unfortunately I’m not doing any mailing commissions at this time. Also I probably would ask for another request if I was. If you can believe it I’ve never seen either movie and lately I’ve been backing off from commissions that involve things I have no connection with. I just don’t think it comes out as good and you should only be paying for my best.

In less than three weeks you’ll be able to get your own copy of DRAW-A-SAURUS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO DRAW YOUR FAVORITE DINOSAURS. The early reviews have been coming in and they’ve been wonderful.

Although the views of readers are nice, I thought I should get some honest opinions from the experts. Luckily the AAPP (American Association of Paelo People) was having their national conference on Maui. After showing my fake credentials, I was able to make the rounds and get some very candid assessments of my work.

"Meeerrawwwwrg"-Tarbosaurus.

"Hoooorraaauuwww"-Mamenchisaurus

"Shhhkeeeroooorg"-Spinosaurus 

"Mrrrufraaawww"- Camerasaurus

"I found the artwork to be rather pedestrian and the writing was less than inspired."- Ankylosaurus

Well you can’t please everyone. But all in all I was happy with the response. Of course as I was leaving I made the faux pas of asking the Tyrannosaurus to sign my copy. They’re so touchy about that little arm thing.

If you want to grab a copy for your self, head to your favorite book store on September 9th or order it now form your favorite e-tailor.
