H.o.p. in a shirt with his T Rex painting on it, courtesy his store at Cafe Press. This is the pic in which he is standing still for his mom.
And here he is being H.o.p. and unwittingly assuming a Shiva pose. (That’s Marty in the background fixing supper.)
And here he is with his Cafe Press “Hey Mouse” pillow (a painting from last year). Covering his face, of course.
H.o.p. initially protested when I asked him to get the shirt on for the camera and show off his pillow.
“But I’ll look like a salesman!” he said. “They hold stuff!”
Well, there’s something he learned from his mom and dad, an aversion to self-promotion. But I convinced him that his grandparents would love to see him in his shirt and would love to see his pillow.
He just handed me a picture of the stinky breath monster blowing his breath on numerous other characters and making them feel mad.
