A drawing I did for my first book..

I just finished watching RANKIN/BASS' HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL and I always felt their first Easter special was their best! I can't believe this one is not shown on the networks anymore. Last night ABC-TV showed the EASTER BEAGLE and that is far from the quality of this special. I also watched FESTIVAL OF FAMILY CLASSICS on the DVD "Puss 'N' Boots" and loved how MUSHI STUDIOS captured the Paul Coker, Jr. designs! Paul Soles (Hermey the elf) also did a great job of voicing the cat.

Just got back from the STONE TEMPLE PILOTS show at the Riviera and they rocked the house! My ears are still ringing and may be for a while... I had to contend with a few drunks and that was not fun at all! Josh had a good time and they put on a good show!

NEW CD due out in May! My favorite song of the night was their new single "Between the lines"!
