Only the cat and chair are real.



This is our chair. And this is our cat. I have, much like Kelly Clarkson's SELF cover, taken a few inches off of Bebop's back end.

Aaron calls the two kids our phantom children. Which sounds much spookier then I think he intended. I like people that sit on furniture in an unorthodox fashion. Even if they are phantoms.

Just a sketch. I assume the moustachioed lothario in the painting is up to no good. Probably interested in swindling someone.

The moustachioed fellow is just mad because he has nothing to read...

I love this. Incredible.

And I maybe like the moustachioed lothario (did you have to look that up, I sure would've with that too) best of all.

This is really good Jaime. Awesome.

And I didn't know that you do that nifty First Edition Media Services! What? How cool is that? So when I publish my first novel and ride into Seattle on my unicorn, I can hire you to make it worthwhile? Pimp me out?

Awesome. Good to know too, I'll tell all my famous (?) author and illustrators visiting Seattle to hire a pro. This isn't some witty joke or anything is it? Am i the ass here? Cuz otherwise it sounds awesome!

Thanks Ben! You are darn encouraging.

And Duders, You aren't an ass. It is no joke I am a media escort! I would be happy to help on your next book which you should be writing right now instead of looking at my dinky blog.

Aren't we both on a deadline? How come you are surfing? You should be trivializing.
Or I'm going to email you some of MY work...

Jaime, Jaime, Jaime -- you amazing talent you. I love this piece! Can your next show be of children reading? You would be a millionaire! So get busy.

i think mr mustache is spying on the children from behind some secret panel. soon the kids will discover something is amiss. the chair is stuffed with diamonds? they are actually reading in hebrew? and even the cat will join them in solving a diabolical mystery.

what other kind of mystery do phantom children solve?

i love the sketch. i am totally drawn in.

I think the mustachioed (sp?) fellow is the author of the book both children is reading, and he's wondering when they'll get to the major plot flaw! Awesome illustration, Jaime. Very inspiring!
