New Year's Resolutions!

If you're a FIMP Book of the Month subscriber, and you haven't made those all-important New Year's Resolutions yet, don't worry! FIMP to the rescue! You will soon receive "New Year's Resolutions: or How to Be a Better Person". Now, the post office is closed tomorrow, and I think it just might be closed Tuesday too, so the books will go out Wednesday, which may mean you have to float aimlessly in 2007 for a week or so. But soon enough all will be well, and you will be able to stride confidently into the future knowing that you have made those changes necessary to be healthier, smarter, and better.

Temporary technical difficulties, please stand by

The Fiji Island Mermaid Press mothership,, is moving to a roomier server in order to provide you with more images and pages and such in the future. Unfortunately, for the next day or two, most of my images on the web and the FIMP website itself will be out of commission. Tragic, yes, but necessary. It will all be sorted out soon, don't worry.

Sharpie on newsprint

A few of you may recall that a couple of months ago the "Book of the Month" was "Baby Monitor". When I was working out the pages for that book I made this quick thumbnail sketch with a Sharpie marker on newsprint. I liked it, and stuck it up on my wall, and today I noticed how the newsprint was burning itself up as newsprint does, so I thought I'd scan it and share it with y'all.

If you're celebrating anything this time of year, or even if you're not, I hope you have a fantastic finish to 2006!

If you were to step into my studio. . .

this is the "still life" you would find.

If you want to see the painting/drawing made from this pitiful little suspended plane, visit the Zero Sum Art Project blog.

Zero Sum #4

It's Zero Sum #4! See it "life size" by visiting the Zero Sum Art auctions. A very odd little drawing, with a toy plane and a diagram demonstrating nose to mouth resuscitation. Life's like that, y'know. . .

This is why the internet was invented.

I just needed to share this with you:

I saw this first at a delightful blog, plastique monkey, which is well worth a visit while you're making your cyber rounds today.

Keep this man busy!

John Azoni needs your help. He needs you to come up with a task for him to perform. That's right, you tell him what to do, and he just might do it.

I like this project a lot. It involves both collaboration, and the setting up of a rather absurd situation involving rules to be followed. Both things that I play with a lot. So help the guy out, and give him a task or two.

While you're out and about on the web, you might want to check out the auction for Zero Sum #2.
