Happy Pantry: Ice in the Cup...

Like ice in one's are the days of our lives.  Cold, that is.  So very cold.

Speaking of cold - how 'bout that ice?  Not just any ice - but how about that ice in the cup in front of you right now?  Or whenever it is that you have a cup in front of you, how about that ice?

My niece, Chole, was overheard philosophizing, "I like ice, it's like free refills for your water!"

So we immortalized her words in a Happy Pantry drawing.  Bless her sweet simple little mind.

Happy Pantry: K is for kissable Kettle

It's best to kiss the kettle before the water starts boiling.

afterwards, all you're doing is kissing your lips goodbye.  And, possibly, the respect of your peers.

LA Cookie Con

The Second Annual LA Cookie Con is this weekend!  We had a booth at the first one in Pasadena - and it was such a huge success, that they expanded it to two days and then upgraded the venue to the Los Angeles Convention Center.  So many more people will be attending this event, it's going to be incredible!


We are taking Happy Pantry once again - and will be at booth 505!

Happy Pantry: J is also for Juvenile Jalapeno

We all know that juvenile jalapenos are the most dangerous kind.  They don't know their own strength and release their spiciness all at once.

I'm pretty sure that works with the young of all dangerous things, not just snakes.  That's science.
Sketchy science, to be sure - but science none the less.

Happy Pantry: J is for Joyous Juicer

Why waste all that chewing time when you can DRINK your daily requirement of fruits and veggies!?!

Also - if people disliked eating fruits and vegetables so much, why hasn't anyone invented a better system of imbibing these horrid things?  Blending and juicing get us closer than we've ever been to it - but juicing is stupid because you're not filling your belly with the goods, just a lot of sugar and maybe a small portion of nourishment.  There should be a pill that you can chew on that tastes like something other than chalk....

Until then, we'll use our blenders the responsible way.  That's right, I started talking about juicing only to flip the script and whack you over the head with my blended drink goodness.  It's for your own good.

Sure he's a blender, but he moonlights as a juicer on the weekends...

Happy Pantry: I is for Introverted Ice Cream

I is for introverted Ice Cream - this is the 9th possible illustration for our almost alliterative alphabet book...if we were going to make a book, it just might be this one!

Poor little ice cream doesn't like to get out.  Mostly because he starts melting as soon as he leaves his freezing house...and people are always trying to eat him.

Happy Pantry: H is for Hot Tempered Hot Sauce

He's hot tempered because he tastes like Tabasco Sauce.

And we all know Tabasco Sauce tastes disgusting.  I'd be fired up too...

Remember how we said we were going to show up at WonderGround Gallery - because they asked us, not because we were in town and wanted to visit - well here are a couple more promos we made to get the word out!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2016.  It always strikes me as a fairly silly celebration - as the change in date only matters when one writes a check - and who's writing checks these days?  Other than that, it feels rather arbitrary - I mean, I guess it happens every 365 days or so (leap year kind of screws up that number), but nothing really changes.  At least with daylight savings time, you get an hour of light and dark depending on which direction you're looking....but with the change in year?  It's just a time to spend 4 times the amount to eat in a restaurant really really late.

Our tradition is that Tracey goes to bed by 10 and I try to stay up but usually start fading around 11:30 and I celebrate by closing my eyes at 11:45 and waking up in the new year.

So...Happy New Year...?

2015 best 9

There's a thing everyone is doing with their instagram accounts this week. A website compiles a person's beat 9 photos postd to instagram.  It sucks  at first because a bunch of sketchy pop ups spam the screen,  but it cooperates once they've run their course and have probably taken over my phone....

I did one for my personal instagram and one for happy pantry.

And we have a website where you can buy our Happy Pantry merchandise!

Fresh Beat Band of Spies

I worked on a show called Fresh Beat Band of Spies most of 2014 and through the beginning of 2015.  Our first season ended around March and we're waiting to see what happens for season 2.  Finger's crossed!

I did this drawing as my Christmas card to the crew in December of 2014…taking all the fresh beat characters and doing a cutesy kid version of them.  But I didn't want to post it until the show debuted - and then I thought a christmas themed drawing deserved to be on a Christmas blog.

Happy Christmas!

A new cupcake in town...

We decided that Ms Cupcake has let things go to her enormous frosted head.  She's been getting a bit hard to manage with so much spotlight on her at all times.  So we're introducing a boy cupcake.

We're still discussing what his stage name should be.

Also - Ms Cupcake has informed us that she resents the accusations we've made above as she is fictitious.

Happy Pantry is doing something January 10th and 11th, 2016!

Are you in the Los Angeles area?  What about the Orange County area? Stay tuned for what Happy Pantry is doing January 10th and 11th!  It's probably in Orange County...

Ms Cupcake is done up in her fanciest bow...I wonder why?

Adventure Time - my version

more finished on the Adventure Time illustration...all nice and clean - now if only I had time to color it...

although, I guess i did a rough clean up with the original version of Jake...

But this was just a lot of color bucket fills, not any texture or much thought...

Thursday, December 03, 2015


I'm working on an adventure time piece, and drew this Jake...I think it looks too much like their version...and I'm trying to do my version of it - so I have to go back to the drawing board...

Why does he have a tiny hand?!?!?  Curses.

Gonna have an adventure of a time...

I thought it would be cool to do a version of Adventure Time characters, Finn and Jake.

This is my first rough of Finn...and I'll be adding Jake next week (as it's almost the weekend!).

I've only seen the first season of the show - which is amazing.  I gotta find more episodes!

Happy Thanksgiving from Happy Pantry

Did you know it's not plural?  For some reason it's Thanksgiving, not I think that means you should only give one thank and then move on.

We've drawn a lot of Happy Pantry characters so far...and we're thankful for how well received our brand has been so far!

I'm also thankful for my glasses.  I'd rather not have a laser stab me in the eyeball to improve things.  Especially when wearing glasses means I'm in disguise and I can take them off if I need to go incognito...and stumble around because I can't see anything...

Anyhow - Happy Thanksgiving from Isaac and Tracey and Happy Pantry!

Designer Con Happy Pantry Map

Designer Con is this weekend at the Pasadena Convention center.  We're excited to be vendors for the second year in a row.  It's such a great show with some amazing artists, designer toys, and so many things your eyeballs will overload.

We're at booth 309:

we're at booth 309...are the numbers big enough?

You can get in on the right hand side - that's the entrance (the traditional way to get into a building).  From there you have to go through the ticket gatherers and security and then there are 3 entrances.  Sadly they won't actually let us paint pink lines for you to follow to our booth - but try to use your imagination.

Last year we were in the front row, and hard to miss - but now we're 3 rows in AND in the middle of that row, so we don't stand out as much...except for all the pink.
