Adios Pepe!

Lizette's cousin Manuel jokingly asked me to make him a book for his birthday about a cockroach named Pepe. I didn't have time to do the whole book, so he just got the cover.

Bug Goes Bye Bye!

My daughter just turned two years old. For several months before her birthday she would tell us a story at bedtime about a bug we saw at a restaurant in Uptown Dallas. Keep in mind, this is a story told by a two year old! I decided I would illustrate the story for her and make a book for her birthday present. I can't take any credit for the content (although I did embellish in a couple of places) but I did do the illustrations. I presented the finished book to her on her birthday, and now it is a part of our bedtime routine. It's not my finest work, but I can't say that I've ever felt so good about making art. Hope you enjoy it!

Horton Drawings

My director on Horton Hears a Who! was signing some posters for a charity auction and asked me to contribute some sketches. I haven't drawn Horton in years. It was actually really fun to sit down and bust out a few sketches of this guy. I can't imagine these drawings will fetch very much money, but hopefully they will help the auction a little and maybe someone will appreciate owning them. I'm still very proud of my contribution to the movie and I hope people are still enjoying it.




Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, but does anybody have a scanner anymore???

Stupid Drawing

I did for my buddy Rhode. It's a long story so just take it for what it is!

FIXED!!!

All of my technical problems seem to be solved. The lovely people at Dreamhost (who I highly recommend using for your web needs) responded to my plea for help within about an hour of e-mailing them. they showed me very clearly how to redirect my mail through Wix so I can once again receive e-mail through jeff@gatodiablo.com. They also showed me how to access my FTP now that my DNS has changed. Thanks Dreamhost! Now I can get back to drawing....

There's a glitch....

In my matrix! I'm having nothing but issues since I launched my new website www.GatoDiablo.com through Wix. It's nobodies fault but my own. I am surprised at how much trouble I'm having. The first thing that I noticed was that my Jeff@gatodiablo.com email stopped working. Wix doesn't host email so I assumed it would stay active through my dreamhost account. Apparently not. Since I pointed my DNS to the Wix site not only has my e-mail stopped working but I also can't even access my FTP! On top of that I don't have time to problem solve any of this because I'm working all weekend.... RAGE. Anyway, if you need to e-mail me, please do so at Kontrol_Z@Yahoo.com.

Sorry for this boring post, but I needed to rant. I feel 2.6% better.... I promise a better post soon.
