We’ll be checking in periodically from remote locations like Altadena and Studio City, but you won’t have us to kick around the studio anymore…at least until the next time.

The Scene Is Set

April 11th, 2006


Jaime grabbed me by the ear (figuratively) and dragged me into his office this morning to see this lovely painting by Dan Chessher: Dawn at Dr. Froyd’s Funny Farm. Ain’t it gawjus? Makes you want to go out and do some doga at yawn in the topiary garden. Which is what Dr. Froyd is doing right now…in the painting I mean. The sun is rising on our picture too, and it looks like a beautiful day ahead! Thanks Dan!

Jaime Can’t Stop Drawing!!

Look at all the Froyds! The world’s greatest Animal Pyschiatrist has really inspired Jaime Diaz, but he’s not the only one.

Don’t ever stop, pardner!
