Going through my old stuff has yielded some fun ye olde guts stuff from way back. That brain really needs some folds, doesn’t it? And the heart, lung and liver look so naked to me without arms. Some original drawings from my sketchbook from February 1999:

Just a reminder, the guts store will be CLOSED from Dec. 22-January 2nd while we move! Any order placed after Dec. 21st will be sent after January 3rd. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you are in desperate need for an organ, you can visit a local gutsy store near you. Please be patient with us while we truck our junk across the country! Any returns will be forwarded to our new post office box (still TDB, will post as soon as I get the number). Wish us luck on the drive and we’ll see ya out east.
I Heart Guts has made Los Angeles its home for five years and now the time has come for us to move, this time to Washington D.C.! We’re packing up a truck full of hearts and spleens and hitting the road — my husband’s new job is out there, so we’re going, guts and all. What does this mean to you, our fine gutsy friends? Well, for one, our gutsy shop will be closed from Dec. 22-Jan. 1, 2011 while we pack up and move — our last day of shipping is Dec. 21 so get those orders in by then! Our new location means our loyal California customers will have to wait longer for guts, but they will no longer have to pay sales tax — hooray! Our east coast customers can look forward to faster shipping, plus a gutsy presence at east coast craft shows (think Renegade Chicago, New York Comic Con, Cherry Blossom Festival, Bust Craftacular in Brooklyn, etc.) Hope to see you in person soon!
I have a new appreciation for child photographers after spending the other morning trying to snap photos of my son, Bix, and his friend Molly, both in I Got the Beat heart tees. Two cute kids, two shirts, big challenge! I took maybe 50 pics and I swear to you this may be the only half-decent one that shows both kids and both shirts. Anyway, kudos to the photogs who can make it happen with ease.
It’s been such a long time since I’ve drawn anything but organs, it felt almost like cheating on my guts to doodle these happy breakfast “Wild Brunch” and “Salad Daze” glass chopping boards for UK-based kitchenware company Joseph Joseph. They are super bright with fun colors and kawaii style and I hope you like them!
With its see-through cover peeking through to lungs organs and other guts, DK Publishing’s “Open Me Up” book seeks to make the human body irresistible, and it works! This book turns the human body into a playground of great illustrations, explainers and all-around good fun. Very accessible, approachable, would be great for the high school human physiology student and/or hobby anatomist. Do yourself a favor and check it out from your local library.
