Gonna have an adventure of a time...

I thought it would be cool to do a version of Adventure Time characters, Finn and Jake.

This is my first rough of Finn...and I'll be adding Jake next week (as it's almost the weekend!).

I've only seen the first season of the show - which is amazing.  I gotta find more episodes!

Happy Thanksgiving from Happy Pantry

Did you know it's not plural?  For some reason it's Thanksgiving, not I think that means you should only give one thank and then move on.

We've drawn a lot of Happy Pantry characters so far...and we're thankful for how well received our brand has been so far!

I'm also thankful for my glasses.  I'd rather not have a laser stab me in the eyeball to improve things.  Especially when wearing glasses means I'm in disguise and I can take them off if I need to go incognito...and stumble around because I can't see anything...

Anyhow - Happy Thanksgiving from Isaac and Tracey and Happy Pantry!

Designer Con Happy Pantry Map

Designer Con is this weekend at the Pasadena Convention center.  We're excited to be vendors for the second year in a row.  It's such a great show with some amazing artists, designer toys, and so many things your eyeballs will overload.

We're at booth 309:

we're at booth 309...are the numbers big enough?

You can get in on the right hand side - that's the entrance (the traditional way to get into a building).  From there you have to go through the ticket gatherers and security and then there are 3 entrances.  Sadly they won't actually let us paint pink lines for you to follow to our booth - but try to use your imagination.

Last year we were in the front row, and hard to miss - but now we're 3 rows in AND in the middle of that row, so we don't stand out as much...except for all the pink.

Happy Pantry is going to be at Designer Con this weekend!

We're excited that we'll be participating in our second Designer Con.  It's this weekend in Pasadena at the convention center.  We had no idea what to expect the first time...because there's so much dude stuff...would they want our pink and cupcake nonsense?  Turns out yes!  And this time we have actual plushes to show...

Here's one of our silly drawings that we're going to post on to advertise our participation in the show:

I thought it would be fun because it's Designer Con - and this was a version of the cupcake made to look like it was designed on blue prints.

Happy Pantry: some pictures from Jackalope

We had the opportunity to show our Happy Pantry at Jackalope a week and a half ago.  It's a new(er) arts and crafts fair and it was a lot of fun!

There were a ton of really cool vendors - we weren't able to get around to see everything, but they curated a really good show.  The only downside that I could see is that since it was outdoors and two days, we had to take our stuff with us after each day, so it almost felt like we were doing back to back shows with all the set up and tear down.

But it was rather worth it.  Here are some pictures from the event that were taken by Gil Riego Photography.

Happy Pantry: Happy Friday...the 13th fry said...

It's Friday the 13th and that makes ya think of two things - one is, don't step on cracks.  And secondly it's weirdo hockey fans with big knives.

But Happy Pantry does believe in superstitious crack stepping, and we definitely are not going to be drawing any knife wielding maniacs (it's kind of off brand)...but we do like we thought we'd do something:

I've been freelancing on Spongebob Squarepants for a few months now, so I thought it would be fun to do that style of 'cleanup' with the line work for this illustration.  And I was really feeling the big fat wiggly fries, even though if I ordered fries, I always hope their shoestring or thin and crispy.

And, if you didn't notice - there are 13 fries and the 13th fry is the one that's wishing you a Happy Fry-day.  So even though I'm spelling it out...enjoy!

Happy Pantry is going to Designer Con

We're debuting Indibanana Jones in plush form at Designer Con in a week and a half - November 21st and 22nd!  It's in Pasadena and we're at booth 309 all weekend!

Cenobite kissing booth

I thought it'd be funny to draw the Hellraiser characters in a variety of cartoons doing regular things.  I figured that the Chatterer would want to open a kissing booth.

Just kiss him, you know you want to!

Jackalope Art and Craft Fair - November 7th and 8th

We're taking Happy Pantry to Jackalope's Art and Craft Fair in Pasadena on November 7th and 8th.  It's located in Central Park, which is between Fair Oaks and Raymond...just two blocks down from Colorado!  We're there from 10-5 each day this weekend!

We're in booth 81, on the Raymond side of the park.

Peanuts Movie (if it were done by Happy Pantry)

There's a movie coming out today about Peanuts!  We're excited, especially our little Peanut.  Finally a movie she can relate to...

Happy Pantry: H is for Happy Hamburger

Over where Happy Pantry is a live real tangible thing that you can run your hands through, but not without getting a slap, we like our hamburgers happy.  And soy.  And our cows alive which makes them happy as well.

If we were going to do a children's book, our first attempt would be an alphabet book.  We think it'd be fun to go through all of Happy Pantry and give the different characters a chance to show off what they can do.  Or, at least, what action words we can alliteratively link them to.
