One of my favorite blogs that I check every day is Drawn! And yesterday, they brought to my attention that May 16th was the 20th anniversary of Jim Henson's death. And while I usually don't like to focus on death anniversaries but be more drawn towards birthdays, this did make me think about how shitty it is that such an awesome man has passed on well before his time. I was talking about this with a friend of mine last night and we both realized that there are adults walking around that have probably never heard the name Jim Henson before. How bonkers is that?! Are you that person? Do you have a friend that is that person? How sad is their dull emotionless life? Do they shuffle around every day, just going through the motions like some kind of programmed, loveless robot? I'm sure they do.

My BFF Angie bought me this from the Muppet Whatnot Workshop in NY this past February. How awesome is that? Better than any gift you got in the past year I bet!

Below are a few pieces from a series of characters from Fraggle Rock that I did just for funsies..





And here are a couple from The Dark Crystal....

So, if you know of anyone who needs some good vibes in their life, sit them down and watch one of the seasons of the Muppet Show together. And keep your eyes peeled for the next Jim Henson contest I'll be doing on his birthday! This is last years installment:

I love you,

So, just to clarify, am I your "best friend forever" or "best female friend"...or perhaps both?! ;)
