These guys are almost done...I sure can't wait til 'Planet of the Apes' hype passes, so people can get back to seeing my chimp drawings as a commentary on our current societal issues, rather than assuming they're mere advertisement illustrations for a movie...I'm in #AnnArbor this weekend, people...get at me......

Today feels like the perfect day to turn 40...the past 40 have been like a symbolic bear totem of a deep long sleep, it's been a long meditative journey discovering myself and my work....today, I wake the bear for the back 40-50...my foundation has been built and now, with devotion, I charge ahead with focus on my family, my art, my work, my life...the sleeping bear has awakened!!! Today I begin my awakening in one of my favorite cities, #Chicago, with a much-needed body-treatment at @DanaHotelandSpa to massage out the 40 year old kinks and tonight I'll complete the celebrations crushing an impressive menu of fresh, raw fish at @MomotaroChicago with my wife & kids & my good friends from @JacksonJunge...following today & into the future, expect to see an immense amount of new art, the completion of my Hannibal art gallery & an all around newly-discovered, zen-version of myself. Cheers!.......
