As many of you know, I have a budding artist in the house named Jack, age 6, and his greeting cards are something I look forward to every holiday. Sometimes, they’re a little unsettling, such as the Valentine’s Day card…
Our Son's Valentine 2011
that informed me that of the Top 3 things he loved, Star Wars was #1, then came his mom and me.
Star Wars is #1 in Jack's Heart of Hearts.
But this year’s Birthday card was exceptionally special:

October 1st is the “best day of his life” or as he puts it, “live.”

And I especially loved the self-portrait of Jack and me:
Jack's self-portrait of himself with me (he fancies himself a Hawaiian shirt wearer)
But some of the Dinosaur and Star Wars art he’s been creating lately has been really fun:

And lately, he’s been transfixed by the Allosaurus:
And here is his Darth Maul. I often wonder what his art teacher must think of his creepier images.

Thanks to all for indulging me today. If the house was burning down, after making sure my family was safe, Jack’s is the art I would grab on my way out the door.
Hope you’re having a good one. I’ll be at Star Wars Fan Days in Dallas this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so stop by and see me if you’re there. I will have something cool to show you that I’ve been toying with (pun intended).
On Monday night, join me in Chicago — I’ll be at then “Masque of the Red Death” gala WildClaw Theatre benefit, raising money for the greatest horror theater in Chicago, and my horror artwork will be auctioned off to help the cause: http://wildclawtheatre.com/wc_html/gala_benefit_2011.html
From October 29th – December 2nd, you can see an incredible horror art collection at Maleficium: Dark Art Exhibition at a west suburban Chicago gallery, owned by my friend J. Anthony Kosar: http://bit.ly/qbnHiO
I will have 3 pieces in that show, and am joined by the likes of my friends and fellow horror artists including Jill Thompson, Tony Akins, Doug Klauba, Ben Templesmith, Bill Reinhold, Brian Busch and many more.
