Ring-Ring


With all of the cell phone craziness these days I would love to stand in one of these again, insert a dime, and order a pizza...maybe even steal the phone book hanging off that chain.

Drawings



I love using a Micron pen on Laser Color Copy Paper, Bright White, 32 lbs. Smooth and works quite nicely with a light watercolor wash and a bit of colored pencil.

Cheers,

Dog Tricks

                                     

                                "Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks."



Hope you're drawing every day.

Bow wow,

                                                 "No, a hoarder."

Sketchbook Skool and a New Cartoon







IT'S TIME TO JOIN SKETCHBOOK SKOOL. DON'T BE LATE FOR KLASS.

The "Beginning" klass is one of the choices for the new term of Sketchbook Skool which starts Friday June 10th. Prashant Miranda (illustrator, author, animator) is one of the 6 fantastic sketchbook artists who will be teaching. The others are co-founders Danny Gregory and Koosje Koene. Plus Roz Stendahl, Jane LaFazio and the famous Tommy Kane. Sketchbook Skool would be worth it just to get one of these instructors but you get six! A new instructor every week for six weeks. And did I mention you have lifetime access to the kourse material?

Sketchbook Skool is the number one reason I draw every day. It is a community of highly creative people. Sketchbook Skool is the base of my creative life. Do you want to learn to observe and draw, keep an art journal, practice watercolor washes or crosshatching...peek into studios, find out what Tommy Kane's favorite pen is, or why and how Roz Stendahl draws animals? Join Sketchbook Skool. You'll learn from artists all around the world.

Illustration Friday Theme NOSE


This weeks  Illustration Friday theme is NOSE. I happened to have this little comic piece I pulled from my graphic novel. This is when I had started a new job...one I wasn't sure I wanted...but I could sell the car and walk to work in two minutes.

Sketching Live


I sketched LIVE today and I felt buzzed instead of self-conscious and anxious.
Opening day in Danville, OH. People waiting on the square for the parade to start.
