Pin-up of the day- Rachel the Owl Girl!

Rachel the owl girl by Taylor Lymbery

It's been a while since I did one of these pin-up girls. I was inspired when I was thinking up a gift for my grandmother. I had thought of making a Rosie the Riveter pin-up girl with a bird who's color is corresponding to her uniform. As I had mentioned in the Blue Jay posting, she was happy to get just the bird. I was so intrigued by the bird/ pin-up girl idea, I just couldn't let this go! Hanging out with friends one evening, I managed to do all the pencils and ink in one sitting. I colored it the following day in photoshop. I have added this to my run of alternative pin-up girl posters that I'll have available at conventions. You can also see this art piece here.

There's been an update to the store tabs on both Xenex the Bug Man, and this site. All of the print on demand issues, cafepress stores and commissions info will be under the new store tab on both this site and the Xenex the Bug Man site. Hopefully this page makes shopping a bit easier. Go and check it out! 

Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. So I will be there (given that I don't have another mishap).

Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
