Soda Cans ~ 7/30/01 ~ 7x9

Text says "As long as their soda cans are red white and blue ones."
Inspired of course, by the Cake song.


I have often thought about sending something in.

Lop Sided Box Bottom ~ 7/24/01 ~ 5x8

I was trying to work out a tattoo cover up in July of 2001, that is why you see all of these tribal looking things. They are harder to pull off than they look...getting both sides exactly the same.


There are some great sketches on this site - check it out. I have always wanted to experiment with water colors, but never have. I enjoy the color quality that water colors create.

Fuzzy Green Thing ~ 7/24/01 ~ 5x8


This site has some beautiful drawings on it. It inspired me to put the gel pen down for a bit (PUT THE BUNNY DOWN!) and give the old ball point a try. Nothing of mine turned out as good as any of these, but it was fun. My attempts will pop up here sooner or later, I'll try and remember to put inspired by DQ when they do. I hope there are DQ 4's, 5's, 6's - on and on to infinity. Whoa - did I just type that?

6 Strings That Sing ~ 7/24/01 ~ 7x9


Check this blog out. Many cool sketches and drawings! I made a comment on his blog telling him how much I liked the facial hair on some of his characters. Groovy!

It just came to me yesterday that I could blog about blogs instead of trying to add everyone to my links list. Now you can look forward to a link and a doodle daily. Woo-Hoo!

6/20/01 ~ 5x8

I censored the title of this one. It is not very nice. Not that the person it references will ever be looking at this blog...none the less, better safe than sorry. CYA, ya know?

Welcome to November

Vacation is over. Blech! Here I am back at work not wanting to tackle the piles and piles of work I have to do. Double Blech!

I had a good time on my visit to my hometown. There were some weird family dynamics to deal with but I made it back alive. ;)

I didn't get much doodling in...not much I was pleased with anyway. I did get in a few last night in between handing out candy to kids. Man, those little suckers are getting greedy! Just reached straight in my bowl and grabbed what they wanted, AFTER I had already put a handful in their bag! Brazen!

I'm looking forward to catching up on Illustration Friday and looking at all the posts I missed while I was gone...but I should probably do some work first. ;)
