Owl Jointed Dolls and other reasons to be an artist

Because I'm sure this is the quickest way to get invited to swank parties in the Champagne region... a jointed owl doll.

It was one of those, "I HAVE TO MAKE THIS, NAOWAH!" type moments I am prone to having, for which I reserve the right to not have to explain to anyone.  When I look at him, I think of all the other productive things I needed to get done this week.  Time well spent, I think. 

I dunno how you put a price on this much awesome, but he is for sale.  He'll be on display at the Bismarck Art Gallery through the end of December.  Brilliant! (Want to see s'more pics of Iagan?  Click here to head to the 4Dog gallery.)

How To Draw Horses

Fo' realz!  It's out!  It's hitting bookshelves as we speak.  It's the only reason to get out of bed that I can think of.  How to Draw Horses - Everything you ever wanted to know about drawing horses, hardware, history, & mythology. Complete with clear, step-by-step instructions and information on costumes and armor from multiple periods in history from around the world. Anatomy and action, wagons and wedding coaches, it's all in this book!

And it's only $12.95.  Take two, they're small!  (It would be awesome if) ALREADY A MILLION COPIES SOLD! You can order a copy online via 4 Dog Arts, Amazon, Etsy, and several other fine retailers nationwide.  If they don't carry a copy in your local bookstore, demand it.  Nicely.  Want to order a copy and have it personalized?  Just say the word.  Need a third option here for closure?  I'm on it.

Seriously.  I thank you.  For real.

Lost Dog. Not Book Realted. Probably.

In a complete diversion of my attention, we found a new face in our yard this evening.  (If you were out hunting north of Richardton and lost your dog, fear not.)  I took the liberty of making up some lost-dog posters that Rocko says I should not show to anybody.  He is likely correct. 

The thing about dogs is, they're rather on the honor system.  I do my best.  Hope he sticks around.
