Just like meat, "MEAT SECTIONS" art sometimes goes on sale. But unlike most supermarket meat sales, this art is still fresh.

From 12:01 AM on Friday (the Black one) until midnight on Monday (the Cyber one), get 20% OFF EVERYTHING in the shop, including the San Francisco and Seattle "Meat My City" posters! whoa. Just enter the code "SEASONSMEATINGS" in the coupon code area on the Etsy checkout.

This is a great way to get some early holiday shopping done for your meat-loving friends and family. Or, you know, yourself.

Easy. and like I mentioned, fresh.

Happy Tofurkey Day!


See, there's something here for vegans too. (Reposted from way back in January!)

Day 328

original watercolor and ink illustration

Oh, green bean casserole, I don't believe I ever ate you growing up. My parents are vehemently anti-mushroom, though I doubt there is more than a teaspoon of actual mushrooms in the Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup. Fried onions aren't bad though.

Day 327

original watercolor and ink illustration

Diagram of canned cranberry sauce - the only kind we ever had growing up. We ate A LOT of this, chilled, splooshed from the can, and elegantly sliced into can-shaped rings. Yes, the fresh stuff can be awesome, but nothing beats this on the leftovers sandwiches.

Day 326

Hand Turkey Butchery!

Little known fact about the hand turkey - it's mostly giblets.

Day 323


The real deal Merry Carnitas holiday card. Maybe you don't celebrate Christmas, but you can always celebrate Carnitas.

Swapped in a cream background for a more festive look!

Expect packs of these meaty cards in the next few weeks in the old shop.

Day 322

Hot Buttered Rum.

If you think too long about it, it might be disgusting. Hot butter and rum? I've actually never had one but have been dying to try since I heard the one at Smuggler's Cove described as "cookie dough melted into rum" That sounds far more appealing.

Day 321

The holiday pigs keep coming today with "Hammy Holidays."

I was going to put the antlers on an actual ham, but the this little guy was crying out for some horns. This should be a holiday card, perhaps sold in a set with the "Merry Carnitas"?

Day 320

original watercolor and ink illustration, with digital background

Glogg, gluevein, mulled wine, vin chaud it's all basically the same spiced warm wine.

Yes, I know it's festive, and yes, I've imbibed, but honestly, it's a little gross. I mean, just typing the words "warm wine" kind of grosses me out. But the idea is romantic and nostalgic and festive. So I meat section-ed it. so there.

Day 312

chalkboard pig diagram
original chalkboard drawing.

I did another version for this pig for my business cards, but this one will be available for sale during my holiday shows this December. It's sprayed with a fixative, so that the chalk doesn't move. It's awesome.

Day 311*

Seattle Eats Local
Seattle Eats Local Poster, available in the shop

The much-anticipated follow-up (at least in my mind) to San Francisco is for Carnivores, I'm super psyched to announce the "Seattle Eats Local" poster!!

It is a hand-drawn map of Seattle neighborhoods in the form of Seattle's most local of foods, the chinook salmon. In addition to the neighborhoods, there are some salmon parts diagrammed, like dorsal fin, head, belly, jowl (ahem...) etc.

yes, freaking awesome.

I've spent a little bit of time in Seattle, traveling for work in my old government job, and was always impressed with how authentic and delicious the food there was. Most of the restaurants really took pride in showcasing foods local to the Seattle area, Washington, and the Pacific Northwest in general. Hence, the title of this poster.

Hope the Seattle-ites love it.

*(really days 287 through 311. There's a ton of freaking neighborhoods in Seattle, people!)

Pssssst..... the tastiest pig part shirts are available!

Yep, I just put a very limited number of the tastiest pig part shirts in my shop, here. There's only about 13 up, and that will be it for the next few weeks anyways. So if you want one, grab it. And shake it. Shake that I'll stop.
