the cover of my imaginary comic book

The Calamari Kid is a story I wrote and illustrated for Squidoo. It is in five parts, and each page has a link to the next. You will find all the links on the sidebar of this page.
I think it would be fun to have a "Comic Code Authority" seal of approval.
I'd like to someday make a comic book of this story. Or a children's book. So far, it's just a cover.

miss you!

The inside of my card says, "I miss you, too."

This was my entry in a Hallmark card contest. One of my sisters emailed me the information. The contest calls for a humorous card in any of these categories;
  • Get Well
  • Love
  • Congratulations
  • Miss You
  • Friendship
  • Thank You

Have a Chili Willie Chili Dog Day!

I have no good reason for making this illustration. I just really like Wienersnitzel chili dogs. I like to say I'm having a "chili willie chili dog day". I made that up myself, along with the song it comes from. No, I won't sing it to you. It only exists inside my head.

I've been trying to decide what should go in the upper left corner. A wiener dog? A kid eating a chili dog? An angel? My logo? I'm awaiting your suggestions.

The shape is from one of those metal lunch boxes they have at Michael's craft store.

Lucky Girl

I am so lucky!

Today I was so tired and my shoulders and neck were so sore. John, my sweetheart, took care of me. He took care of my mom so I could take a nap. He massaged my shoulders. And he went to Raley's and got me some Chinese take-out food so I didn't have to fix dinner. He also helped me with the laundry.

I feel sorry for everyone else, because I got the best one!
