Who's Who

The Principal Characters:

  My name is Carolyn Watson Dubisch, and I been writing this blog in 2007. During that time we have changed locations and traveled and gotten sick and celebrated life and mourned death.
   In my two decades as a commercial artist I've created giant vegetables for a Washington DC Museum, helped create two dozen tiny hot air balloons for a Vegas show and designed alien bird-men for Star Wars games. I write and illustrate children's books and comics, many of which are available on Amazon.com. My art has been exhibited all across the world and is in quite a few permanent collections. I have a mask store online called Artisan Masks where I create masks of all kinds. I've designed masks for photo shoots in New York, Hong Kong and London, TV shows, theater productions, ballets, music videos, and more.
   I'm also a mother, wife, and pet owner. Recently we moved our family to Mazatlán, Mexico where I'm back to learning to live life in Spanish!

   My husband, Mike Dubisch is a cult figure in underground horror comics, Dungeons and Dragons role -playing games and most recently H.P.Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. Beginning a quarter century as a cartoonist and illustrator in his mid teens, he has created Star Wars toys, colored comics, animated DVD covers for the World Wrestling Federation, and designed a million cartoon cockroaches for MTV. His work is held in the permanent collection of The Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art. He's a professor at the San Francisco Academy of Art University online and regularly designs monsters, and characters for film and T.V. He's also the founder and exclusive artist for Forbidden Futures Magazine. Together we've had three children and wandered the across  7 countries.

My oldest daughter, Chloe Dubisch, is a now a young adult experiencing life far from home. She's atypical in that she reads a book or two a week, is an incredible storyteller herself, and an excellent artist in her own right. Her work's been in several galleries in Phoenix, and is a part of the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York, and the Aswara Gallery in Kuala Lupur, Malaysia.  She's in her senior year of school at Stephen's college in Columbia Missouri. She's also very involved with the literary magazine, and is a council member at her sorority, Kappa Delta.

Phoebe is quite the cook, from pastries to fancy dinners and has just spent a year learning to play the ukulele. Phoebe is an accomplished artist and has worked professionally as a caricature artist. She graduated a year early from high school this past May, and attended a Yale summer program for astrophysics this past summer and is now studying in New York City, at "City Term" at the Masters School, where she is learning about the history of NYC and studying urban planning.

Naomi is the youngest and has just moved with us to Mazatlán. She's working as a teaching assistant at an English immersion preschool here in México, takes Spanish classes, and together we are going to learn to surf now that we live by the ocean. She's also a great artist and cook, and loves movies. She's studied film making for three summers at the ID tech film camps on A.S.U.'s Tempe campus, and still has a great interest in the subject.

Oscar is our dog of over five years. Dramatically rescued from certain death in a busy intersection in downtown Phoenix, Oscar has stuck around since that fateful day that he jumped in our car.  He enjoys laying on the couch and following me around, and for some reason really likes rice. 
He's now a Mexican dog and enjoys his morning walks on the beach, but is a huge baby about the three story walkup to our apartment.

      Gigi is our newest family member. He's a fluffy black cat with big personality. He enjoys watching birds on TV, climbing the screen door, and chasing Oscar's tail, much to Oscar's chagrin. He's enjoying the many lizards of Mazatlán that have made the unfortunate choice to come into our apartment.
