…be sure to check out “The Muppet (Art) Show” at the Rogues Gallery in Packrat Comics in Hilliard.

The show will feature work from a bunch of artists who each contributed their own interpretations of the Muppets. The best part? A bunch of my friends are in it!

Jeremy R. Scott created this gem…

Dwellephant contributed numerous pieces to the show (this being one of them)…

…as did the event’s organizer, Josh Peters.

Other artists include Joel Jackson, Alex Clare, and Timberlee Myers, among others.

The opening reception is this Saturday, December 3rd at 7:00 PM. The gallery will also be open during Packrat Comics’ regular business hours.

Learn more about the event and see more pieces here on Facebook, and here at the Rogues Gallery blog.

It’s time to play the music,

"Matilda Turnip's Endless Belly Button" by Bethany James Leigh Shady and Joshua Peters

Coming early next year (February 2010, to be exact) is the tale of a girl named Matilda and her endless belly button.

Written by my kid sister Bethany, and illustrated by my old friend Josh Peters, “Matilda Turnip’s Endless Belly Button” tells the story of… actually, I’ll let my sister pitch it to you:

Matilda Turnip lives a boring, unloved life with her mother Orla in a tiny Irish town whose population is made up mostly of grazing sheep. But one day, she finds that her belly button is a magical portal that exciting items have begun emerging from! Each item takes her on a new adventure where she meets new friends, eventually arriving on an island where she is pleasantly surprised by someone from her past.

I’ll be posting more about the book (including a five-page preview) as the release date gets closer, but for now, Bethany and Josh have started up a Facebook fan page for the book. Click here to join the club and get ongoing updates about “Matilda Turnip’s Endless Belly Button.”

Making a big brother proud,


…I posted this long-lost clip of Stevie Wonder performing “Superstition” on “Sesame Street” back in the seventies.

My friend Josh Peters runs his own blog (Lunchbox Unlimited) and, along with a group of fellow artists, is a part of something called “Sketch-a-Day” where, well, he does a new sketch of artwork every day. Or mostly every day.

Anyway, Josh decided that today’s sketch would be inspired by that video of Stevie funking out on “Sesame,” and here’s what he came up with:

Awesome job, man! I especially love Mr. Hooper playing the broom!

…posted these videos in the comments section of my post on the best commercial ever.

But just in case you missed them, enjoy these “promotional videos” from the Cleveland Board of Tourism.
