Evil Clown From Above

Created May 20, 2007

What's scarier than an Evil Clown? An Evil Clown with a rainbow wig! Chasing you!

Backyard Shenanigans

Created May 19, 2007

This is quite a busy rendition. On the bottom right, you can see Avery enjoying herself on her swing.

And on the bottom left, you can find Ethan on the slide (apparently tumbling head first down the slide towards the "camera.").

I'm not sure who's in the middle. Maybe me and mommy in the REALLY tall grass. Time to get out the lawn mower.

Fields of Green

Created May18, 2007

The Sun of Apathy

Created May 9, 2007

Another in the Spring series, this shows some nice blue butterflies, and a nice field of flowers.

The sun, while not happy, isn't looking rather pleased, or angry, or anything. He's just kind of there munching on Cheetos or something.

Coloring Books

Created April 28, 2007

Ethan and Avery have been taking up a lot of coloring book time recently in this time period. Well, Avery mostly, since Ethan spends much of his coloring time either picking at the crayons with his fingernails, or eating the crayons, or ripping the pages, etc.

What this means is that there is less interesting Budding Artist pictures to show off in terms of artisitic themes and content.

Anyway, Avery has been getting much better at keeping her crayons within the lines, as demonstrated by the picture seen here.

Dog in the Rain

Created April 19, 2007

This poor dog is hopelessly ranting against the cruel trick that Mother Nature has played on him. He was promised a sunny day, but instead Mother Nature has qushed his soul and spirit with a torrential downpour.

Damn you Mother Nature. DAMN YOU!

Spring - Part 1

Created Late April 2007

Some time in April, Avery started creating full April scenery, just waiting for submissions to television stations for the weather people to display.

There are a full series of these.

Hearts Aflame

Created April 2007

Sand Worms!!

Created Early April 2007

Much like the fabled Sandworms in the novel "Dune" or the movie "Beetlejuice," Avery can harness and power and ride the giant Sand Lady Bugs that exist in our backyard. Thereby allowing us to harvest precious spice.

Avery's New Bike

Created March 25, 2007

We had bought Avery a new bike right before tis picture was created. This is her rendition of it.

Additionally, apparently she's attached a balloon to the handlebars.

And for some reason, the spectre of death itself is following her bike while riding a skateboard.

Serenity Lake

Created March 24, 2007

In the early dawn, a swan gracefully lands in Serenity Lake, barely causing a ripple.

All is right in the world.


Mr. Roboto

Created Late March 2007

Sent back in time to protect Sarah Conner, Ethan and Avery are killer cyborgs from the future.

Note that Roboto-Avery sheds a tear for humanity's future.


Created March 6, 2007

Ethan guest art.

Woe, To Be The Hot Dog...

Create March 6, 2007

...for you are to be eaten.

The Affair

Created March 6, 2007

Exploding Toilet
