Join the Phatpuppy Team for St Jude's!

Save the date!

What do you give thanks for?

I give thanks for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and as the team captain of Phatpuppy Art, I give thanks for dear friends like you who can join me in supporting this great cause.

I've been moved so much by the inspirational stories of the precious kids treated there that I'm participating in the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. on Saturday, November 22. That's why I need your support to help me reach my fundraising goal of $150.

Will you help me support St. Jude by donating today? Or even better, join Phatpuppy Art and fundraise and walk with me!

How your support helps:

Thanks to donations from people like us, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent.
Please visit my fundraising Web page to donate or join my team today.

* The Phatpuppy Art Team will be walking in memory of Robin Williams, an immense supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and a great man*

Thank you for your support.

Casting Call for Models

Tue Sep 30, 2014, 8:47 AM
Hi all,
I'm embarking on a semi big project and would like to get models interested in appearing in a upcoming published project that will be seen
world wide.
I need all shapes, sizes -- just no children.
No monetary compensation - but definitely something for your portfolio.
Credits will be absolutely given on my personal page and I will do my best to get on finished product, but cannot,
at this time, guarantee it.

I need men, women, couples, tall, short, heavy, thin -
some of the photography I'm doing myself - but due to time constraints, I'm asking for stock.

and if you're interested please write to me
at gmail
so i can get you a model release and discuss the possibilities.

I think every couple of weeks I will post what I'm casting and you can submit your photos.


This should be a lot of fun!

I'll start with the first themes I'm looking for 

fear of intimacy
the thought that you can change a person - when you know you can't

Tough, huh?

Submit to my email with the subject
Phatpuppy Project

Can't wait to begin!!

Oh and if you feel you even have textures or backgrounds that depict these "feelings", you can send them too! I will consider it all..



  • Mood: Joy
  • Drinking: Coffee -- is there anything else??

You have such beautiful book covers! I can see why you're the NYT bestselling book cover artist! You are an amazing artist! And may I ask, how much is a commission for a book cover?
