Get on your spacesuits, everyone! The Big Honk has arrived!

Books just showed up yesterday, and we’ve already got a whole crew ready to send these out into the universe and into your hands. Thank you all for being a part of making this book real. It wouldn’t have happened without you, and I hope you enjoy the book as much as Spencer and I loved making it.

For those of you who participated in the Kickstarter, if you haven’t confirmed your address on the site, please check one last time to ensure these make their way right to where you are.

Awesome news! Spencer Smith and I are working hard to make a real, hold-in-your-hand 40-page book of poetry called Could You Hug A Cactus?! With the incredible help and insight of Mike Matola, we were able to carefully choose a selection of my poems to include in the collection, and Spencer painted some incredible illustrations in full acrylic for the book… as you can see!

Spencer’s ability to capture the essence of the character is on full display with this art from Hero

Right now, we’ve got a Facebook page set up that we’re updating regularly and on August 10th, we’ll be launching our Kickstarter! Please join us as we work to get our first book off the ground!


Since you may have been able to tell by the title…the holiday cards are here! They look incredible. I have to give major kudos to Overnight Prints as they did a great job printing and cutting them all, and due to my personal delays this year, had to get them to me over night. In fact, I got them by noon the next day. Amazing work.


Spencer did the artwork for the cards, and did an amazing job per usual. As the cards haven’t been mailed yet, I’ll wait until Christmas to post the entire card here.

So this is what 130+ holiday cards getting dropped in the mail tomorrow looks like! Keep an eye out for those.


Please let me know what you think, and if you’d like to get a card mailed to you, please get in touch. Thanks!!

I’m so happy to report that “Could You Hug A Cactus?”, my first book-in-process is nearing the end of the sketch phase. My illustrator, Spencer Smith, and I have gone back forth a number of times tweaking things here and there, but the overall look is great, and he’ll start work on the final artwork next week! I’m so excited to get it out there and into people’s hands!

More illustrations after the bump!
