Guess Who?

WHO is that?


Could it BE???


Yes! It's me, Art Lad! I'm back!


I'm sorry I haven't done anything a while, but I've got a lot of new artwork to put up, so prepare for the return of Art Lad!!

But first, a catch-up.

Well It's been a long time and since my last entry, my Mom had a baby girl named The Éclair (well, her real name is Elizabeth but we have to give her a cool secret identity for online). Know why she is called that? Because she is really sweet, but really gooey and messy. She has really grown since then. Her first word at two weeks was "hooray." Her first trip was at 11 days of age because my Papa and Grandma got in a terrible car accident and died at the same time. I am still very sad about it, even though it seems like a long time ago. Everyone else in my family is all safe and good and I will be featuring things about them, like pictures and stories I've made up about them.

I've changed a lot too. I'm now 57 inches tall, and I'm ten years old (I added a lot of stuff to my profile update) and in the 4th grade so I am old enough to write my own blogs, but Dad willstill check my spelling and punctuation.

Things got moved around in the house. If I didn't tell you already, I got a loft bed a little before Eclair was born and my other sister, the Brownie, she got the old guest room and she got a new bed. It's the softest bed in the house. The new guest room is down in the basement, near my new headquarters. It is called......the ART CAVE!

My Art Cave is the coolest. It's really just the basement, but still cool.

I can hang my art up for display or to let dry if it's paint.


Know what this is that I'm working on?


It's a Deinonychus baby. To give it scale I will draw in a big nose of a mother sniffing it. Dino mommies could chomp babies up if she wanted, and sometimes dinosaurs had to fall back to cannibalism when times were tough and food was scarce. Know how they know that? Because they found fossilized baby skeletons inside the rib cages of fossilized adults, so that means they got in there by being swallowed.

Mom says when I was little, I was so cute she could have just eaten me up. And when I got older and started giving her trouble, she sometimes wished she had. I don't think that is what happened with the dinosaur babies, but it was a really long time ago and you never know.

Now here is a video of me in the Art Cave, talking about my picture. I just uploaded it to Youtube and it took a while but by the time you see this, it should be ready to watch.

It is kind of bad and needs editing, but I just wanted to do a quick video to show you what things will be like around here from now on. It will be art but it will be more. It will be a multimedia gallery! That's like when they have TVs stuck in the walls along with things you can touch along with zappy light shows all alongside regular paintings. I have an opinion that it will be pretty cool.

There will be more soon. I want to put up something new before we go away for Thanksgiving, but I'm not sure I can. But I still wanted to say HI to everyone who kept coming here and emailing Dad and asking "When is Art Lad coming back?"

Well, now you know when.

See you soon!

Art Lad (Thomas)

I'm glad you're back.
Welcome back, Thomas!! I'm excited to see all your artwork. :)
Welcome back, Art Lad! I really like your dinosaur pictures. Dimetrodon was my favorite dinosaur when I was in 3rd and 4th grade. But apparently hes not an actual 'dinosaur' nowadays, something called a pelycosaur.

There are so many dinosaurs these days, I don't know if I'd be able to memorize the names of them all!
Art Lad, it is so wonderful to have you back online. I will check back often and see what new things you have for us.

You have been missed. :)

My son will love your dinosaur drawings. He is 5 years old and in kindergarden, and his two favorite things to draw are dinosaurs and pokemon. I cannot wait to show him your site.
Art Lad, this is my first visit to your site. I really enjoy your work. My brother and cousin both used to draw dinosaur's when they were young. They both still draw and paint. My cousin is an artist who has sold paintings all over the world and was actually commissioned to paint some movie stars. My brother painted Nolan Ryan and his family (he used to pitch for the Texas Rangers). So stick with it. Who knows you could end up being another Divinci!

Oh and I really enjoyed your video. When are we going to see Star Wars?
so glad that you are back... you are a pretty awesome kid!
So glad to have you back ! We've missed you. Looking forward to much Art in the future
Yay! The Art Lad is back!
Welcome back, dude. Good to see you again.
I wondered where you went, and I'm glad that you're back!
He's baaaaaaaack!!!

Hurah! We really, really missed you. I have followed you and two sister's fun by reading your Dad's blog. But it sure is nice to be able to hear from YOU again.

Welcome Back!

you're back!! Hooray!! Maybe I should come back too. :) I've been meaning to. Maybe I'll do what my boyfriend is doingand do 1000 posts now that you're back :) I can't wait to see more of your drawings and movies! I'll check every day :)

Hey Art Lad!!

Glad to see you're back to blogging! We all missed you so much! :)

Your new drawings look awesome!

Email me if you ever wanna talk!

The Twinkie :)
Beautiful pictures! Just gorgeous!

I'm glad you're back, Art Lad. Looking forward to more posts!!
Hey, guess what I found in my RSS feed reader today? That Art Lad is back! Dude, this is gonna be so cool, I'm sure you are going to show us a bunch of sweet pictures and paintings. Your fans will be waiting for your new images, A.L.!

Saludos de tu amigo de Mexico,

Carlos Mal.
Welcome back! I'm very excited to see more Art Lad originals!

And a multimedia gallery? WAAAAAAY awesome (and I'm a little jealous cause I've no idea how to do that!)
My goodness Thomas, how you have grown! I'm very impressed with the young man you have become. Keep up the terrific artwork & the writing! I cannot wait to see what awesomeness you share with us!

Tell your Dad I said "You are definitely your father's son!"
Welcome back! I look forward to reading more.
Yay! Thomas! I am *SO* glad you are back!!!

We still have our picture you made for us a looooooong time ago - I had it framed, and it is hanging in our new game room, along with some other cool artwork. We tell everyone who visits that it's an Art Lad Original! :)

I can't wait to see what you come up with next - I'll be checking in all the time!


Old Auntie Thim :)
welcome back! i've missed hearing... er, reading your perspective on things. :-)
hi Art Lad...what a neat place you have to do your art work. Enjoyed your blog
Oh wow! Welcome back. The art cave looks like a very cool place to do your art. You are so lucky!
Welcome back, Art Lad! We've missed you! I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Welcome back, Thomas! I'm so excited to see that not only will you be writing and drawing again, but doing other creative projects as well.

My brothers used to make movies all the time when they were younger. They'd make stop-motion animation with their action figures, or they'd write short movies and act them out themselves. I made a short Darkwing Duck animation one time using a white board and a video camera. There's really no limit on what you can do nowadays! You can even add in your own music to your videos.

I'm really looking forward to what you come up with!
Welcome back, I hope to see more of you and the Art Cave in the future.
All I can say is...FINALLY. Welcome back Art Lad.
looks great, Art Lad!! my son (age 11. almost.) really likes the whole art cave concept. In fact, he would like to create an art cave of his own out of my office (!!!). I'll let you know if he gets his way.
Hi Art,

Thanks for the tour of your "office". I have a boy too, his name in Nick but I call The Boy on my blog. He's in Grade 3 and I am going to ask him if he would like a blog too. :)

Can't wait to see the finished dinosaur pictures.
Welcome back! I was hoping you'd miss all of your online friends and fans, and sharing your artwork. So glad you're back!

Hee hee. The part about your mom wishing she'd gobbled you up when you were little made me lol. Good thing my kids aren't here (they are at school) or I'd have to explain that I have felt the exact same way!

Keep up the art and the writing!
What a nice surprise! I'm so happy you have decided to start blogging again. I missed you and your wonderful art so much! Its good to see you and your work. You have really grown :)
Awesome. I can't wait to see what you will create next!
I'm new to your site and your dad's.. but I really love what you're doing!
Welcome back, Lad! :)
Way cool, Thomas! I'm glad you're back, and I'll be looking forward to seeing more of your good stuff. Hope your Thanksgiving was as great as mine!

(Wow! Big coincidence! My word verification is "CONNYMA". My Mom's name is Connie!)
So glad you're back Art Lad, and what an awesome Art Cave!!!

Keep drawing!
Hi! I am a China's girl. I also like painting pictures. Next time will have a look to you !
Hi, Art Lad. I just noticed that you posted a new entry and I couldn't be happier. I look forward to being able to see you work again. Tobi
Hi Art Lad! Glad to see you are back. I always enjoy your posts and have been checking now and then to see if you would post anything new. I look forward to your artwork and your views on life.

Glad your back Thomas:) I really missed hearing about your adventures. Hope you had a great year! Can't wait to see more of your art work.
Hello Thomas, the video is great!
Now I know your voice and I hope you to come to visit my french blog.See you soon!

Hey art lad. I was just wondering, "hey, I wonder if Art Lad is still around and posting to his blog?" I checked here today and there was a new post up since the last time I visited, yay!!

I hope you can post some more stuff soon. Your artwork looks great, super fun!
Cool post as for me. It would be great to read something more about this topic. Thanks for posting this info.
