Happy New Year! I am glad to see 2014 go, it’s been a rough year. (Those of you who know me personally probably know what I’m talking about.) Thanks to all of you who supported this endeavor over the last year, and especially to all who bought artwork last month. It was my best month yet, by far. I want to give an extra special thanks to a couple people. First is my buddy Chris. I work with him at my day job, and he’s been really supportive and has bought a few of my prints. Next is Noemi, who has been promoting Doodle My Dog on her Instagram and gave me several orders for Christmas. Check out her Twitter page here. An extra special thanks also must go to Doc Terror. He hired me for multiple jobs as well and has been promoting my horror comedy illustrations on his sites, DocTerror.com and HorrorSexy.com. Check him out!
New Website Designs
I’ve completely revamped two of my other websites. Naturechem was looking pretty 2010, so it was time for an upgrade. The Naturechem site will mostly be of interest to those of you in the chemical and/or green business sectors. Even if that doesn’t describe you, I’d love for you to stop by and check out the new design. Comments are always appreciated! I’ve also completely redone Doodle My Dog. I wasn’t really happy with my previous main page; there was too much underutilized space. The new site tells you everything you need to know on the first page, and it features a big mural of my previous clients to really give you an idea of what the site is all about. Stop by and let me know what you think! If you’ve got a pet, I’d love to draw him/her.
New Artwork for Sale
I was very busy with a few client projects again in December, so I only have two new illustrations in my movie/TV caricature series. However, it’s still going strong! Thanks for your support. The first illustration is from the Coen Brothers’ cult classic absurdist comedy The Big Lebowski. (This is also one of my all-time favorite movies.) The other is the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who. Doctor Who caricatures are my top sellers overall, so it would be financially irresponsible for me to stop making them. I’ll draw all thirteen Doctors, eventually. Next up is John Hurt’s War Doctor. Click the images below to buy them on phone cases, tee shirts, mugs, pillows, and much more!

Top sellers for December 2014
December 2014 was awesome for my online store. It was my best month, to date. Thank you SO much if you made a purchase. If you were buying a Christmas present, I hope your recipient loved my work as much as you did. I sold quite the variety of products, but my biggest were my metal canvas prints and tee shirts. My Plucky Droid piece, as well as the rest of my Star Wars chest series, sold very well on metal canvas. For tee shirts, my top seller was my Animal Mug Shot design. Please click the images below to purchase. Share, like, and comment, too. Again, I’ve got lots of new stuff that I’ve added to my Wanelo shop, including professional gallery prints, stickers, and travel mugs. Check it out!
Top blog post for December 2014
My top blog post was my Cyber Monday sales info. Check it out here, if you want, but please note that all the sales are expired. You can still purchase the artwork at the regular price, though. Second place (and not too far behind) goes to my essay about the major political parties, and why you shouldn’t support them. I’m glad this essay is doing well; hopefully I’m changing some minds. I don’t argue with people of Facebook anymore, and I plan on writing a post about why I’ve stopped. Click here to read my essay about the crimes of the major political parties.
Doodle My Dog Going Strong!
I’ve posted a bunch of new canines on my website; click here to view them. Thanks to all who hired me to render their best friend! Click here to view my Fiverr gig and to make a purchase. Click here for more information about the Doodle My Dog site and my process. If you don’t have a dog, I’ll draw your cat!
