Le bachelor: hour 22 and wicked cute dinosaur mugs..




(dinosaur mugs by Gary Rith---the original doodle--my buddy Sean mentioned last Saturday that I should try to make dinosaur mugs with spiny handles and I thought about it and doodled this then made these :)
What if your wife was out of town and you made the usual coffee pot but drank it all yourself???? WHEE!
It isn't a joking matter anymore: I miss her. You wake up, and sure, there's a beagle next to you, staring longingly in your eyes (she wants her breakfast) but I got married to Missus Tastycake for a reason :)
The funny part is that people see me joking about this and the emails come, the phone rings, and it will be hard to get work done, with all the social events I now have going on....
In other news, here are the first types of dinosaur mugs, freshly fired from the kiln and they look AWESOME. The first version had the spiny handle, but then I started chopping sections out of a thick handle and forming feet. I am putting these 3 for sale at my online gallery and you KNOW they would be perfect for DAD on father's day..
