Dynamite Danger

Dynamite! Danger! Do not enter!

An explosives expert is mandatory on this demolition site. If an expert can't be found, a beginner crocheter will have to do.

The remote detonator was low on batteries this day, so the dynamite had to be lit manually.

Tragically, the dynamite sticks were rigged with ultra-rapid fuses.

We hope to rebuild Howie soon. Until then, beware of the dangers of dynamite!

UPDATE: Howie here, freshly cloned from my nasal remains.

My explosives expertise was trivialized. After all, I did reinforce each dynamite stick with cardboard tubes and polyfill, then made each wire from slinky coils. The fuses were twinned with twine and sparklers.

No amigurumi were harmed in the making of the following video. The same can't be said of my left shoe.

Egghead Sis

My sister is an egghead.

By that, I mean that her head is shaped like an egg. At least, that's how I've drawn her over the years:

Also, her birthday is near Easter, which reminds me of Easter eggs.

To celebrate her birthday (and her eggheadedness), I made this offbeat caricature on her noggin:

This video shows her Grade "A" reaction when she opened her crocheted gift:

Happy birthday, sis! May your shell be strong and your yolk be sunny!
