Nothing like a good cigar...

Despite the fact that the main image is a piece of stock art, I'm pretty proud of this week's cover for IN Utah this week. I think it looks pretty classy!

The Calm Before the Adventure

It started out as doodles on my weekly budget at work yesterday, then I decided to put the elements together. I'm started to get excited for the new Indy movie, so I've been doodling Indy and company a lot lately. Here I depicted a nice, quiet moment with Indy and Short Round.

Raiders of the Lost Munny

Another Mini Munny creation I recently completed is of one of my favorite heroes, Indiana Jones. I decided to depict him in a scene from "Raiders" (my favorite film of all time). He's holding an "Idol Munny" I made from a Munny zipper pull. I also created a base, which is based off of the floor from the temple in the opening scene of the movie. More picks of him can be found at my Flicker site here:

I'm currently finishing up 2 more Mini Munny creations that I will post about in the near future!
Hints as to who they are: One "Aims to misbehave" and the other is a "Slice of fried gold!"

Lil' Leonidis

I've had him done for a couple of months and I can't believe I haven't posted him on here yet! It's my second custom Mini Munny--Leonidis from the movie "300." I made him for my wife for Valentine's Day and she absolutely loved it!
Check out more images of him on my Flicker site here:

I recently shaved down the beard that I've had for several months. It started out as "scruff" in the summer (came in handy when I was Dr. House for Halloween) and when November came around, I decided to let it grow out full.
When I was shaving it, thought I would have a little fun and gave myself rock-a-billy sideburns for all of 30 minutes. My wife didn't approve of them.

R.I.P.: "Blain's Rock-a-Billy Sideburns, March 20, 2008 7:40 A.M. - 8:10 A.M."

She did however fondly approve of me keeping a goatee! Here's a pic of me after I got done shaving:
