Self on the Shelf

Yippee! The Polygoons Activity Book is now available at Quimby’s Book Store, 1854 W. North Avenue in Wicker Park, Chicago. If you have never been there… go there now. If you have, then you know what a great place it is for independent authors, illustrators and readers alike. The Polygoons Activity Book currently resides on…

Magic Material

Ever work with “modeling material”? It’s not clay, but you do get to sculpt in a somewhat similar fashion. Even though I have never touched the stuff before, I decided to give it a go. A while back I had bought a little pack of sculpting tools and figured let’s do this. (What good is…

Information Age Learning

There are so many great videos out there that I have been looking at to learn different techniques. As the Poly-verse expands from sketching to painting to animation and everything that comes with it… always learning is the key. There are a bazillion different ways to learn. My favorite is asking an actual human. If…

Exciting & New

All aboard…. we're expecting you at the Quetzal Art Fest on August 5th! And because you are so awesome, I decided that I would paint. Yep, paint. Usually I'm drawing the Polygoons, but available at the Quetzal Art Fest will be my take on variant colors, various canvas sizes, and other interesting knick-knacks and/or paddy-wacks….

Art Fest in August

I’m super psyched to be sharing this news today… are you ready? The Polygoons will be at the Quetzal Art Fest on Saturday, August 5th from 12pm – 6pm. Well, I should say myself, Mr. Garcia, will be there and I will have lots of awesome Polygoons artwork available. This is the third annual festival…

Font-tastic

In my head each character has a strong voice. When making creative choices for them, like what they’d say, what they’d wear, hobbies they are into,  I can literally hear their voice say, “this could work” or ” nope”.  Creating a font, letter style, that best reflects their persona can be fun. From the beginning,…

Forgot Father’s Day?

Did you forget about Father’s Day? We know he means a lot to you, but life can get so busy.   We got your back! Tell him it’s on its way.   You can head over to The Polygoons Shop and get him a sweet Polygoons Classic Tee (currently $12.95 + shipping) or a mug… or…

Funny How Things Work Out

Shopping for gifts is tough. It’s even tougher when you want everything you see FOR YOURSELF.  Going to the art supply store takes an immense amount of restraint and self control. The colors, paints, pencils, yarn, brushes, canvasses all calling your name. But on this occasion, I had to stay even more focused. Reminding  myself…

New Toys 

Just got this little set today in the mail. My previous attempts in the world of sculpting were….hmmm… how could put this… a complete disaster.  The material was nothing like good ol’ play-doh. Back in the day, I made some pretty neat stuff. This material was stickier and didn’t stay put. Good luck trying to…
