Right before I started my new job, which was also the last beautiful weekend I could sit out on the deck without my paint freezing, I worked furiously on about 60 light switch plates, a Peanuts frame or two, a few cigar boxes, and Calvin & Hobbes magnets. I was set for a craft fair! I was ready with (in my artistic estimation) hundreds of bucks worth o' stuff!

--having plummetted--off the Winter River Bridge.)
It was therefore with mixed feelings that I accepted the challenge of an upcoming bazaar (!) at an animation studio here in Connecticut. My brother Wes works there, and says his co-workers, who are busily animating the Peanuts Movie slated for release in 2015, are absolutely nutty for Peanuts-themed stuff. Half-begrudgingly, I set out to slap together some boxes, magnets, and other Peanuts-themed-stuff...and the thrill of creation seized me once again!

He is absolutely right.
