I had the opportunity to do an Anchoarage Press cover on the quick, three hours notice, about the Fairbanks Rocket Club.  I'm pretty happy with the results.

New T-Shirts at

I'm experimenting with a new t-shirt company Mysoti.com ("My Stuff on the Internet") who does "print on demand" t-shirts.  What won me over was that the t-shirts are not iron-on transfers, but are rather printed directly on the fabric for a long lasting, full-color image.  All the t-shirts will be available in a variety of colors and styles.

"All Man" is available as a men's t-shirt, kid's t-shirt, and a baby's onesie.  "Grace and Style" is available as a woman's t-shirt, kid's t-shirt and baby's onesie. The prices depend on the style of t-shirt, but all are around $20.00 or lower.

They also do canvas prints and posters, so look for more of my artwork posted up in the next few weeks as I pour through the archives.  I'll likely have some some past artwork available as prints and kids t-shirts from the Alaska and Texas books.  If you want to see anything in particular, let me know.

To order the shirts, go to http://www.mysoti.com/mysoti/designer/yoursquarelife.

New Project

Here are some new sketches for a gallery show I'm working on in June based off of old family photographs I've collected in thrift shops over the years. These are the first steps, exploring the theme as I decide how I want it all to flow together.

Ohio Travel Diary: Day 4

Texas Big and Small up on Etsy

Through brazen neglect, I hadn't put "Texas: Big and Small" up on the Esty.com site. That error is now fixed.  It's a quality publication, so if you haven't checked it out before now, go to yoursquarelife.etsy.com.

Drawing at La Bodega. Their price lables can't be beat!

I was drawing labels with Pamela at La Bodega last week to help beautify (and price) things for the holidays. Get down to the shop, next to the Natural Pantry and Habitat on Old Seward to check out my handiwork and the work of the rest of the artists on the beverage labels just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. There was plenty of crayon used for the beauty of it.

Today's project, nature.

Here's a new print based on a few pictures of eagles my wife took in Haines this past week.  I had the eagle on that middle branch in there initally, but it just didn't work, so it was left on the cutting room floor.

Wasilla on the Daily Show

I'm not claiming Wasilla as my home town (I throw down with Palmer, 7 miles down the road), but it does make me proud to have grown up there.

Me and Palin are like that!

Cheryl Kirk wrote me . . "You're being paired with Sarah Palin or something close to it...." and forwarded me the following email from Amazon.  Apparently, my early years, growing up in Wasilla, have bonded me and Palin in ways we are only now starting to discover. 

From Amazon.com:  

Dear Amazon.com Customer,
We've noticed that customers who have purchased or rated The Very Best of Your Square Life by Lee Post have also purchased If You Put Lipstick On A Pig---You Will Have A Beautiful Pig by Penelope Dyan. For this reason, you might like to know that If You Put Lipstick On A Pig---You Will Have A Beautiful Pig is now available.  You can order yours for just $11.95 by following the link below.

If You Put Lipstick On A Pig---You Will Have A Beautiful Pig
Penelope Dyan

Price: $11.95

Product Description
Get involved in politics with your child in an absolutely fun way! Based on a political comment by one running for office (that your child has more than likely heard) Dyan sets out to both teach your child and amuse. The other words used in this book are some of the very same words taught in the Penny Mouse Early Reader Series, taken from and based upon the first primary reading list, and this book is not only fun, it is relevant and also purposeful . So smile and laugh and have some fun with this book, and please talk to your child and interact with your child, because this is all a part of the intended purpose of this book! A former K-12 teacher, published in 'The Kindergartner,' as well as in 'Instructor Magazine' and in 'Humpty Dumpty' children's magazine, and an award winning author, Penelope Dyan has once again put her expertise, love and knowledge of children to work; and this book is one story of one election you and your child do not want to miss!

  In honor of the comparison, here's an old YSL strip addressing why Palin and I don't look more alike.

On the death march through the United States, our only nourishment was this butter dipped hot dog.
I would do it all again.  It truly is the perfect food.   

Silent City issue three is out!

If you have a spare moment, check out Silent City magazine's myspace page for a pdf of the latest issue and the final verison of the cover, which is quasimodo standing astride one of the most recognizable buildings in  Nebraska, the name of which escapes me (but the image never will).

New Listings on Etsy! Christmas Cards and T-Shirts!

I've uploaded a few new listings to Etsy, namely packs of christmas cards and the remaining limited edition "King Cabbage" t-shirts.  I have the cards in two flavors, "Merry Christmas" or the more European "Happy Christmas".  The cards are in packs of 5 with envelopes and are blank on the inside, so you can write your own impressive Christmas wishes (or threats).

The t-shirts come in S-XL and are heavy weight cotton t-shirts.  The sizes have been spot on for people, not too small or too large.   They are nicely rolled and tied with a red ribbon, for that special touch.
