Babies everywhere!

Audrey Fiereck and Ella Ingber with mom, Robyn.

In honor of Audrey Fiereck’s first birthday, it’s time for cute! Enjoy this gallery of two of my favorite tiny people, Ella Ingber and the aforementioned Audrey. Audrey’s photos were taken at nine months and Ella was a newborn. No audio on this slideshow; sing your favorite lullaby. Click the image or [here] for the gallery.

Expect more updates soon, including photos from Silvia Yordanova’s PlayWear collection!

P.S. If you don’t know what “Babies Everywhere!” refers to, you must have missed this ridiculous Nutri-Grain commercial from years ago.

J + B

J & B, in love.

As my brother and his Persian bride are about to be wed (at the end of May), I think it’s appropriate I finally share a set of lovey-dovey engagement photos. Pictures of Bahareh and Justin, from a farm north of Chicago, follow…

Cross-country canines take their owners for a ride during the Barkie Birkie Skijor race, one of many events at the American Birkebiener in northwest Wisconsin.

More than 9,000 skiers and 20,000 spectators descended on the 2,000-person town of Hayward, Wisc., the end of the Ameican Birkebeiner races Saturday, Feb. 26. The major Birkie races span 50 and 54 kilometers from Cable to Hayward, but I chose to take photos instead at the skijor (‘skee-zhor) race on Friday, because pups pulling people is a preposterousĀ  proposition. A short roll of 12 photos follows…

FatMan – A Compendium of Husky Hand-Drawn Heroes

–Eric ‘Capn’ Braem for Boomstick Comics

Bryan’s recent Boomstick Comics post on Blubberella came with the claim that the obese, Nazi-killing, half-vampire is the first, fat — or at least first, fat, female — superhero.

Scouring my brain, which hurts quite a bit, by the way, I quickly realized that I was never a big comic fanboy. I remember reading some TMNT and I loved the hell out of The Tick, but most of my comic-reading was in the Sunday funny pages. I love me some Calvin & Hobbes. Still, I managed to come up with a few…
