Happy Thanksgiving from Red Rocket Farm! This Thanksgiving, we’ve got some story time from Teeter! Many years ago my cat Samantha and I were holed up in a tiny studio apartment that was located in the rear basement of a house in Little Five Points in Atlanta. This apartment had many unique amenities such as: a street number address that ended in 1/2 (just like I’m in Harry Potter, accept that my mail never gets delivered right!), a hole behind the hot water heater that Samantha used ...Read more
It is four in the morning as I write this. The work has calmed down for the night. Everyone has gone home. The scroll saw is resting in its blanket of sawdust, the airbrush is quietly cradled in its stand. The classic Star Trek episodes have been turned off. There is a satisfying stillness. These are the moments where The Farm is the most beautiful. We’ve made so many new friends, met so many fans, and grown so much. As the year comes to a close, it is difficult to not be sentimental abou...Read more

What awaits us in Detroit, Michigan? We have no idea!… [read more] Neither Teeter or I have ever been to Michigan. Perhaps we will see flying dogs there! Perhaps we will have to drive on the other side of the road. WHAT MYSTERIES AWAIT IN DETROIT!?!

We are back from Dragon*Con!!!
Because of the long weekend, we just now got internet again, after a congress of squirrels decided that they wanted to have that one last nibble that cut us off from the world. It’s just as well, because this is the only time of year we really take to just disconnect, relax, and NOT ingest truly horrifying amounts of caffeine. Lack of internet actually helped some.
There’s some VERY cool announcements coming up in the next week, lots of awesome Dragon*Con news and photos, and some more FDfTS comics as well!
NOW IN FULL COLOR!Stay tuned, and thanks for sharing!… [read more]
Red Rocket Farm, The Cap Man, and Third Half Studiosare just a few of the local artists on hand at this weekend’s festival. If you missed out, don’t fret: many of them will also be attending Dragon*Con next weekend, and most of the artists also have web sites offering their work for sale and announcing which future festivals they will attend. Red Rocket Farm is an animation and art studio showcasing humorous designs like the “SplatBot” robot who has sadly lost the scoop from his ice cream cone. They offer paintings, prints, and t-shirts at a range of price points and the friendly artists are usually on hand to discuss the work at the festivals. (More…)… [read more]
Jason Thomas’ Free Art at Inman Park Festival
While strolling through the Inman Park neighborhood during their annual street festival, I saw more things grow for the streets than of the neighborhood – or the Inman Park Festival’s carnival vibe. Think: have you ever been to a carnival or fair, put money on just about every game, give it your all and crap out? While this neighborhood usually has that vibe – considering their economic gap (I mean, just look at the houses and condos, then look at the apartments) and personable disparity between the yuppie and the hippie – there are moments where artists like Jason Thomas make everyone feel equally special… (more)… [read more]
Here’s a sneak preview of the latest painting run: “Domer”. Domer pretty much has to do whatever the brain makes him. He is programmed to follow commands, but he doesn’t have to be pleased about it. This item be premiering at Dragon*Con in a few weeks, but he’ll be available in the store soon after. I’m really excited about this guy. He has coffee, and it’s our first painting run which has story on the front. The large version will have seven layered wooden parts (the background wood, the floor, two wall panels, two text boxes, and of course, Domer)! It’s going to be a very detailed piece.
Tenative prices and sizes:
$40 Small version: Includes Domer and ground piece…. [read more]
