Hey guys. Well, this was a nice blog while it lasted. There was a good run of cool images. To keep this blog from entirely going under, I'm posting something up which Gail and I just saw a minute ago. Enjoy.

PS: Gail wants me to remind you that the Indiana Jones store will be opening soon online. There will be lots of 'cool stuff' on sale there tomorrow.

***Edit: Apparently I was mistaken. Gail says the Indiana Jones store opens on Tuesday, not Sunday.

Rudolph and Snowman

I've been trying to post this video a couple times now and I can't seem to get it to work, so I'm sorry if it doesn't show up. A while back, Gail and I took some pictures of a couple of christmas toys and made a story about them. I haven't had time to put them together until now. Hope you all have a great break. Merry Christmas!

here's a link. Please don't expect 'Laurence of Arabia' or anything like that. It's well, you'll see...

Hi everybody! Here are some new sketchbook pages, and my Senior self portrait!

Monday, December 3, 2007


Another self promotion piece, part children's book, part visual development. It's all cut paper, except for the sky, which I painted first. I was looking at a lot of Mary Blaire for inspiration, but wanted to make sure it still had some Matt Swartz in it. What do you think?
