Announcement by MrDinks
My wife did the announcement the traditional way with a photo of our books and ultrasound.... I went ahead and threw in a homage to one of my favorite cartoons. 'Cause, y'know, that's what I do....
Opening Up.... by MrDinks
Opening Up....
I have a secret.

I've kept it from some of my closest friends and family. But recently, my life's begun to change and I realize I'm no longer the man I used to be.

My wife had an eating disorder. No, that's not the secret. But it's something that she always struggles to keep herself balanced and healthy. No, I don't have an eating disorder. But I can relate to having to constantly monitor yourself. The big difference between her and I is that she's very open about it. She reaches out to those who suffer and tries to shed light on the mysteries and the stigmas.

Inspired by her bravery, I've decided to do the same and follow in her footsteps of those like myself.

I used to keep this a secret because I was afraid those closest to me would step away in fear or disgust but I know now that I have all the love and support I could ever need and so, this is dedicated to those who've been compassionate and understanding, those who do so from here on out and especially to my loving and beautiful wife Laura who's supported me throughout this terrifying endeavor.
The Moon by MrDinks
The Moon
Just a quick little thing done for funsies. The wife and I have been putting together a website and our first book so that's been sucking our time but we'll have news soon!!
Dreamer by MrDinks

For this one I wanted to break a few children's illustrations stereotypes. The normal main character for these kinds of things is a white boy. I've got an African American girl wearing blue (as opposed to the usual pink) and dreaming of being a superhero. It just came out that way naturally for me and I realized how I was going against precedents and I was glad for it.

Baby Ghosts of Clermont by MrDinks
Baby Ghosts of Clermont
My wife and I volunteer at a state historic site called Clermont (we also got engaged and married there!) and this past Halloween they did candlelight ghost tours where the guests were guided through the house when a fortune teller has a mishap and unleashes the ghosts from the site's past. Each person played a particular historical figure, my wife and I bookending the tour as lost lovers Richard Montgomery and Janet Livingston.

During one night while I was waiting for everyone to get dressed, I drew my character Richard Montgomery as a baby. We had a little chuckle until we realized it would be very funny to see them all as babies with the tour guides the teenage babysitters. It kicked around in my head for awhile until one day it just fell out of my digital pencil. So, without further ado, the baby ghosts of Clermont!

Ok, guys and gals!!

Prices by MrDinks

Well ladies and dudes I've got my Facebook page up and running. I'll be posting lots of works in progress as well as updates on my much-loved Bud-A-Bean & Mr. Dinks project. If you're excited, bored or just really really wanna be awesome be sure to stop in and check me out.... in a totally non-stalker like way of course.
