Goonies T-shirts!

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Here is the shirt I designed for the Goonies 30th Anniversary 5K beach run. It’s going to take place on the beach next to Haystack Rock!


Here is the other design I did for the Goonies 30th Anniversary 5k run. Licensing didn’t approve this one though. Ignore the type on the banner, none of it is correct, it was just placement text.

I made a Sloth logo for a bag that I plan to use to carry my art supplies.
I put the image up on redbubble and cafepress if anyone else wants a product with Sloth on it.……23813-sloth

Choose Your Own Goonies Adventure!

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Hey Goonies, I finally finished my Choose Your Own Goonies Adventure poster! It took me quite a while but it was a fun challenge!  You get to pick the path the boys take and there are some fun choices to make!
I didn’t have any money to print these up but I put them on if anyone wants one.

The League Road Trip Map

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

A couple weeks ago The League challenge was to write about your ultimate pop culture road trip. I missed out on that challenge; which is a real bummer because I love to travel and would have enjoyed putting together a road trip. But to make up for it I made a map showing most of the other Leaguer’s hot spots. I couldn’t fit everyone’s on the map and I only did the USA, so some sites in England got left off; sorry about that.
So I present to you the League Ultimate Pop Culture Road Trip Map:

The sad thing about making this map, I realize just how far away I live from all the cool stuff :) I live in south Texas, to reach the nearest location, which for me would be #14 would probably take 7-8 hours!

To read about all these great places and more check out all the great responses by the League members!

Goonies in the Dominican Republic

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

I went on a mission trip to the Domican Republic from June 13- June 20. On our last day they took us to a market that had a bunch of souvenirs and such but there wasn’t a lot of stuff to pick from, pretty much the same few things repeated over and over. I got bored with that real fast and grabbed a friend and left the market to walk down the street.

We walked a few blocks, went in a few stores (there weren’t many) and then I went in a used book store. The store was small and didn’t have very many books. All were in Spanish and in the back they had a few old Spanish childrens books. And then I spotted these and my heart almost stopped:


Amazing! You have to understand that in the stores and in the towns we went to they didn’t have anything. They had nowheres near the selection we have here. For cookies and chips you had 2, maybe 3 to pick from; same with the soft drinks. I never saw any toys or books for sale (other than this store). It was pretty much necessities and nothing else.
You all know how big a Goonies fan I am. So to find two vintage Goonies books was mind-blowing. I truly feel God was giving me a present for all the work I had done that week, and most of the time limping around with a messed up calf muscle. There really is no other explanation as to why I would find 2 vintage, un-used Goonie books in a country that has very little.

I also found this Italian Disney activity book, also from the 80′s:

I got all three for $2. I never saw any other 80′s items the entire week I was there. I never saw any other kids books, toys or anything other than a few stickers. It truly was amazing!

The real gift from God was the experience’s I had and being able to connect with the children but I feel that on my last day this was just a little extra icing on the cake.
