Still rolling with my New Year's Resolutions, I managed up re-work my Patreon! I've streamlined the number of tiers. Now we have sketch requests, commission discounts, and an exclusive character poll for a Patreon-only drawing every month! I'll be active with first look WIPs, sketches, videos, Q&A, and other surprises. If you enjoy my art, please help support my mission to keep it accessible for everyone.  NINJA MONKEY STUDIOS ON PATREON Also, as I mentioned in my last journal entry, a children's book I've illustrated recently hit the market.

I mentioned before in my journal that I've been working on a series of children's book illustrations, right? Well, now it's live on Amazon! How exciting! DAISY GETS A BROTHER The book is available for pre-order currently and releases February 1st. Thank you to everyone who supported me through the illustration process and to the author Fred who approached me with such enthusiasm for the project! This book memorializes his dog Daisy who passed last year and also celebrates their adoption of Daisy's younger brother Cody. The illustrations are cute and lively. I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed creating it and collaborating w

Happy Birthday, sorry about the clone trooper birthday cake, the fangirls hijacked it!
Soon, it's going to be yet another regular day. Birds will sing...cats will meow...dogs will bark...geese will honk and steal peoples stuff.  

A typical, simple, regular day.

However, there is a small, tiny, exception.  The exception is for you, for that is the time when lightning was thrown from above by Zeus to herald your appearance.  Cast in the molten fires of Mount Olympus, and granted with a great creative power, you have been released upon the world to conquer it in whatever manner you see fit!  For it has been foretold by those who can see the future that you are great and true, and that it is your time to shout your joy to the heavens, and revel in the knowledge that on that day, it is written for you to have a Happy Birthday, with many more to come to increase your power and complete your creative conquest!

Also there's hand made cake and ice cream from down the street.  Those folks make some mighty fine cake indeed. Yum! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
Today is a special day worthy of celebration--because you are a special person worthy of celebration, and it is your birthday.  You in all the universe are a unique product of unique experience that have shaped a unique and compelling perspective. You merit interest and attention; you merit praise.  Your presence in this shared reality makes that reality a better place.  For that, and your brave and generous sharing of the products of your experiences and creativity, I pause to note that I rejoice in you, and wish you a truly HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

OH I hope you are having a GREAT day today!  A great day with your family, and your friends... and lots of CAKE!!
