Skiing penguin postcard

Winter fun for everyone, even flightless birds

Penguins love winter sports. And they always dress appropriately for the weather. Just look at this fella – he’s got his toque, his mittens, his snow pants. Ready for adventure on the slopes!

This illustration was designed for a postcard style invitation, but looks just as good on a shirt, sticker, or art print.

I love it give me more!

King Toad in the Land of the Mushrooms art print

November 16, 2022 | Illustration

King Toad is a mighty and just ruler

A whimsical amphibian, a rare monarch who deserves the respect given to him by his people. But don’t be fooled! While nestled among strange mushrooms, plants and flowers he appears calm and complacent. But he is known across the world as savage when crossed, and an excellent strategist. I’d stay on his good side, and keep your trade routes open.

Art print illustrated using Procreate on iPad Pro.

Cat wearing headphones t-shirt

November 10, 2022 | Illustration

Rock and roll kitty!

Kitten was born to sing. Cats love karaoke, everybody knows that. They sing all day. When you are away making them money for more kibble, and laser toys, they’re wearing your headphones, and listening to all your records. That’s why there’s cat hair in your ears.

Digitally illustrated using Procreate, iPad Pro, and Pencil. Reference photos grabbed haphazardly from the internets.

Lemon Sour Puss t-shirt

November 5, 2022 | Illustration

A tart little lemon illustration for those of us who like citrus and shirts

A juicy lemon comes to an untimely end. How sad! But I’ll bet it made a fine drink. Like a lemonade, or something with liquor in it. Maybe some other friendly fruit and berries came to pay their respects. Like some raspberries, or a lime. Yum.

Digital art using Procreate, iPad Pro, and Pencil, for those interested in such things.

Mockup of a tee shirt with a very juicy lemon sliced in half over the words Sour Puss.

Become the billboard you always wanted to be

Wardrobe a little dreary? You’re in luck – Lemon Sour Puss is available on tee shirts at my Etsy shop. Get your Lemon Sour Puss on!

The Evolution of Trust

July 4, 2022 | Blog

In The Evolution of Trust, Nicky Case uses game theory to help explain our epidemic of distrust.

Meanwhile: it’s 2017, the West has been at peace for decades, and
wow, we suck at trust. Surveys show that, over the past forty years, fewer and fewer people say they trust each other. So here’s our puzzle: 

Why, even in peacetime, do friends become enemies?
And why, even in wartime, do enemies become friends?

This has been around for a while (maybe since 2017 or so?) and I think about it every few years, then I struggle to locate it, so here it is for the next time I remember I forgot about it.


Owl in a bowler hat postcard

Birthday invite with owl illustration on a postcard.

Invite, postcard, art print

Animals in silly hats are a perennial favourite. Adults love them, kids adore them. So when my daughter required a birthday invitation, I gladly obliged her a goofy drawing of an owl in a birthday hat. It made for a fun invite, and even works as amusing postcard art.

Postcard style invitations are also a favourite of mine, because the size is right, they are simple to design, no folding, and they can double as tiny art pieces when the party is over.

This is a digital drawing, made in Procreate on my iPad Pro. I intentionally stepped away from including black in the colour palette to keep the illustration light and playful. Give that owl some cake!

Watch me draw this owl illustration
