No bacon after midnight, and always spell color with a "u." Hehehe...

Hockey fans can be very superstitious (like most fans.) During the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City the Canadians that maintained the ice for the hockey rink froze a $1 Canadian Loonie in at centre ice. Canada won gold for men's and women's hockey that year.

I swear, we do have other interests than hockey, really!

Very cute, hee hee.

All your images are fantastic! You are inspiring me to put my pencil down and get back to Adobe. I assume this is digital, or could it be paint? Well, whatever your medium, your stuff is just fantastic!!!

Poor little Ethan, all the black cat wanted was a friend. Heehee. Maybe Ethan doesnt realize the number 13 is a lucky number. Love the colors used, the doom and gloom feeling is hilarious compared to the happy cat. Heehee. Great work David!!!

Hahaha... now I start to know some Canadian superstitions, after 4 months in Montreal, and it's by reading your blog when I find out ;)

I always loved your style.

Hey David, I was tagged today so your name popped in my head when I had to tag 5 other people. If you dont know what it is, you can check it out at my blog site. Basically write 5 random things about yourself then link back to me and 5 other artist.

Awesome snippet about the Canadian Olympic hockey team, David. I'm superstitious sometimes. I won't step on any of the chalk lines when I play baseball. I won't walk under a ladder. And I cross my fingers, arms, legs and toes when my pro & college football teams are about to try a game ending play. (I don't cross my eyes because I wouldn't be able to see the game...besides, that's just silly) :P
