A letter from Poe

It was great to finally meeting Ryan at the opening of little green men. It was also fun talking about art and freehand painting and computers. I told him that my girls love his 'pirate' sticker but I did not realize how much until the following morning. After the opening I came home and dropped the pirate sticker on the kitchen counter and went to bed. The next day my 8 year old presented me with her take on the sticker. Apparently that morning she woke up, saw it and started drawing. Me being half awake and sleepy eyed, I just assumed that she had traced it. But as I cleared the sleep from my eyes and looked more closely, I realized she had not. I asked her if she had indeed traced it. She said "nope" and walked off to play. See attached drawing. I love this story, because this is almost exactly what I did when I copied Pushead's original drawing.

Elmo's Duck

Dear Elmo's, I am a regular and enthusiastic patron of your fine establishment. Whenever family comes to town, I love taking them to eat there. The kids always have a great time coloring in Elmo Duck during the course of our meal and I love that he has become part of a tradition. As a local cartoonist, I took my hand at drawing Elmo Duck in hopes that children can have the same fun coloring in this one as they do the original. In no way have I created this to take the place of such an iconic figure, instead I hope that mine acts as a compliment and addition to the family. Thank you for your time, Ryan

These are the color samples I came up with for the new 7ply boards. I am almost positive we are going to go with the black one, which is A OK with me.
