Paramore's Hayley Williams wearing my "We Just Call It Regular Style" t-shirt. and new shirt designs.

Someone recently sent me this link to a site called . It shows (as seen above) Hayley Williams, singer for the band Paramore wearing one of my t-shirts. This is the "We just Call it Regular Style" shirt. It's from a painting from my first art show at Billy Shire Fine Arts.

I have just made two versions of the shirt available on as well as prints and ipad/iphone cases.

Here is the full-color version. I'm sure that both shirts will look very handsome on you and all your friends, and also everybody you have ever met before.

Jacob the jerk squirrel update

In my last post I wrote about Jacob the squirrel who was responsible for shutting down Squarespace (my website host) after I called him a jerk very quietly. I spoke to Jacob after my last post and we worked things out. He agreed to stop eating my mikans and I agreed to never call him a jerk again. It was a great bargain.

But this morning I woke up and looked out my window and there he was, mikan gobbling. I still love Jacob, but I do feel betrayed. My heart hurts and also my toe, because I bumped my foot into a door earlier (not really Jacob's fault). I want to be the kind of man who shares his mikan with all nature of rodent, but if Jacob eats them all, then I will have none for the either rodents like Sharon and Judy, and also Toby the rodent, and the other Jacob.

I hope it's just a phase. a kind of リスの反抗期。

Meet Bruce and Toby

  Babies are so cute.
On Sunday I bought some baby corn at the farmer's market.  I was very happy to find it because it's not so common and it is very tasty.  Babies always taste better for some reason...veal, lamb, spring piglet, salmon eggs.  I guess animals grow out of deliciousness as they get older.  It is true for vegetables too.  
   I brought the baby corns home and unpeeled them.  Inside I found two new friends.  Bruce is the green one and Toby is the brown, tiny one seen in the photo above.  I am now living with Bruce and Toby and raising them on baby corns.  I am hoping to see Bruce and Toby grow up and turn into a beautiful moth.  Then I will take out the baby corn and put in some wool socks for them to eat.  On weekends, I might bring them, in their jar, to the beach to enjoy the ocean breeze.  What else do moths like to do for fun?
