Can you tell me how to get...?

How do you get to Sesame Street? First, find your way to Astoria, Queens. Beyond that, you're on your own.

This painting is brought to you by the letter "J", and the numbers 1 and 4. The "J" stands for Jasmine, my niece. Her first birthday is coming up in August and I thought it would be amazing if I actually was prepared with a gift for her. I'm so far ahead now that I don't know what to do with myself. The number 4 represents her family, all of whom share the same initials. Jasmine shares her birthday with her big brother, who will be 7, so I guess I have to figure out another painting in the near future.

Oh, for those who are curious about these things, the painting is 20" X 24", oil on canvas. Took maybe 12 hours spread out over several days.

So are you aware of the Sesame Street contest on Threadless going on right now?

I'm also a little surprised you've never done a nice portrait image of Bear. Something cool for your wall, y'know?
