Hey kids! Be careful not to watch
too much TV, or you will end up
like the poor lad in this unretouched photo.

Soft Polkabat

My sister Eliza (of Eliza's jacket)
made this awesome plush polkabat.
Possibly the only one of it's kind
in existence.

Soup for Breakfast

My new book, Soup for Breakfast,
will be out on November 4th.
Rather than describe it, here's
a formal introduction from me,
printed on the front flap:
Let’s enjoy a bowl of soup to start the day.
What do you say?
I, Calef Brown,
will be your host
as we create a masterpiece
on a piece of toast,
and build a world of building blocks
alongside future architects–
the smart and savvy “Architots”.
Speaking of being brainy,

did you know that kindness
towards elephants
is a sign of intelligence?
The same goes for other creatures, however silly or odd.
Look for an egret with a secret, fuzzy wuzzy cod,
even a 2-D cat.
Imagine that!

That about sums it up.
Pre-order a copy here,
or at your local bookstore.

Hello, Dodo.

Five illustrators besides myself

including beautiful contributions from 


This is a birthday birdcard I made for my friend Lou.

Hello, Snail.

Mona Cyclops

Nick Jr. Magazine decided to have a bunch
of artists give their interpretation
of da vinci's famous portrait.
My version is the famous lady as
a one-eyed space creature. Possibly Venusian.

The Saxophone Troll

I was digging through some old sketches
and I found this cover drawing for the dummy of what
would be my second book – Dutch Sneakers
and Flea-Keepers. Luckily, my editor nixed this
poem about a diminutive toll-collecting troll who
lives in a saxophone blow-hole. I should revisit
it though, maybe he will make an appearance
in a future tome at a future time...
