This is not your run-of-the-mill sale. It’s a Hella Sale!

June 1st, 2012 by

Driving across town the other day I happened upon what I thought was a yard sale.

It was not. 

We do things a bit different here in my neck of the woods. We don’t do the typical garage sale, the yard sale, or eBay. Nooo, we do the Hella Sale. Hella Sales are different. They are awesome. They are Stockton.

You gotta admit. There’s some pretty sweet stuff being bought and sold at a Hella Sale. Most of that stuff looks like solid wood and none of that particle board crap from Ikea. There are some lofty standards and I would expect nothing less from a Hella Sale.

Stockton is in a financial crisis and teetering on bankruptcy. I bet the city could solve it’s financial woes with just one Hella Sale. I can already picture a Hella Sale on the steps of City Hall.

It would be awesome.

No. 618: The Heber Creeper

May 30th, 2012 by

The Heber Valley Historic Railroad is based in Heber City, Utah (duh!). The line runs from Heber and into Provo Canyon. On a recent vacation, my oldest girls, Grandpa Campbell and myself took a ride on the train. This image is based on the numerous photographs I took of the train while we were getting ready to board. If demand calls for it, I will gladly get prints to those that are interested. Drop me a line and let me know.

Wafflesaurus Rex

Got a bit hungry and drew the yet-to-be-discovered Wafflesaurus Rex. I can only imagine this noble creature sunning himself in the early morning sun with the help of his waffle-shaped back. You know that Wafflesaurus Rex understood the importance of a good breakfast.

Number 77

I drew this train a while ago. Looks so beat up. There isn’t a real straight line or smooth piece of metal in the entire engine. Even the tracks look pounded and worn.
