I just got my Stain Boy in the mail, and he's found a prime inspirational spot on my messy, messy desk.

Valentine design on chocolate packaging

In yet another Rotty design for Adventure Foods, here is a sticker I designed and illustrated for their Valentine chocolate packaging.

And this is an image of how the stickers actually look on their products (you can click on the image to see it larger).

I'm so proud!

The Rots win Zazzle Tops Today's Best Award

I just started a new shop on Zazzle the other day—with still a long way to go—but the very first design I added to the shop won an award from Zazzle!


I painted the image last fall just before El Dia de los Muertos. It's of Diego Rivera and his wife Frida Kahlo and was inspired not only by the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, but also because where I work has a few Diego/Frida connections.

Fraug used by Adventure Foods

I created a character called "Fraug" for my friends at Adventure Foods who used it on stickers for some Firefly Chocolates packaging. I originally created the firefly as part of their logo, and we thought it would be funky if we had Fraug eating him. They're so twisted, I'm thinking they were the ones who actually came up with the idea.


The stickers are only 2"x2" but they liked them so much they asked me to design a full-sized poster featuring the image. They decided they wanted to use Fraug as part of their marketing campaign geared toward their extensive kid's line of sweets.


The poster stands 23"x36" and they liked it so much they asked me to design a kid's menu/place mat for their restaurant, The Firefly Grill.


And it gets better. Fraug is available on a bunch of stuff for sale on CafePress!


First in clothing, there's


Then in the ceramic line, there's
If you would like to see him on other products that aren't currently available, just let me know. I'm flexible.
