hugs for choopie!

okay...

since we debuted the heroescon exclusive perhapanauts one-page (first in a series) i've been getting a lot of inquiries as to whether we're gonna make 'em available through the website.
the answer, of course, is yes. they will sell, as they did at the show, for $5 (US) plus shipping.and i just stopped by my local little post office the other day and got the pricing info for shipping and it goes like this; $4.95. that's for the shipping tube and the postage to anywhere in the contiguous united states. we'll ship anywhere, but international shipping will, of course, cost more.

if you ARE interested in obtaining one of these ultra-rare, gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, luxurious prints for your own perhapa-collection, we accept paypal (at paypal@perhapanauts.com), check or money order. please make checks and/or money orders payable to;

also showing up at heroescon, was perhapa-fan--and fantastic artist, alicia ross!!
and, as always, her also talented sister, isabella.
it's great to go to heroescon year after year to get a chance to visit with the same people, see how they're doing, find out what's new in their lives. last year, alicia gave me this awesome picture of choopie that she drew, but i never posted it because i wanted to make i had her name right. i was thrilled to see her, so that i could get the credit on the sketch right, when she--always smiling--handed me her latest choopie (and molly) piece which i am proud to present here!



thanks so much, alicia! we LOVE it when other artists show us their take on our kids!
(i'll post alicia's first picture as soon as i find it...i KNOW that it's here in the studio somewhere, but the place is still a bit of a wreck since the cleaning and moving and stuff...)

so that's it for me--sorry for the late post, lotsa work to do.
hope these "five on friday" will make up for it and hold you over the weekend...

1. what was the name of the fantastical 1964 movie, half cartoon, half live action, that featured don knotts as a man who turns into a fish?


2. what is the name of the little duck in frank cho's award-winning strip, liberty meadows?

3. who introduced the art of marionation with such classic tv shows as stingray and fireball xl-5?

5. What is the air-speed velocity of a sparrow?

Great drawings. If I make it down to Heroes next year, I'll have to get her to do something for my sketch book.

1. The Incredible Mr. Limpet,

2. There's dialog in that strip?

3. Gerry Anderson and I still have fond memories of the Fireball XL-5 spaceship I got for Christmas as a boy. It was a great toy, but I couldn't figure out why Santa left the box in our trash instead of taking it with him.

4. ?

5. An african Sparrow or a European Sparrow?

That's a great pin-up. Everyone loves Choopie.

And the trivia was beyond me this week. Even though everyone so far got the last one. I guess it's a quote. You'll fill us in later.

Have a great weekend.
