Soccer Cow for Philip


Here's something I drew in my sketchbook for my nephew Philip. He loves soccer and cows too. What a combination! I had to throw those udders into it.

Trumpet Player


We went to a outdoor concert tonight and I had time to sketch this little guy playing the trumpet. Too bad I didn't have time enough to draw the rest of the band.

Illustration Friday: Instinct


Here's my submission for this week's word: "Instinct". Also included are more gag cartoons for my 30 year high school class reunion.

Enjoy!


Annually, the guys put on a contest wearing womens' apparel (in drag and usually the athletes) to help get funds the Senior Class Prom. It was called the "Mr. Ugly Contest" and was a great way to raise money while creating lasting memories too.


Computers? Who ever knew (or even cared) what they were in the late 70's? Fast forward thirty years later, computers have done wonders with my artwork (especially Photoshop). Now I can't imagine working without 'em.

Illustration Friday: Celebrate


Here's another gag for my 30 year high school class reunion. I see it as a "celebration" complete with a punch bowl and streamers.


Here's another one I just completed. Hopefully no one is offended - it's not a bad looking kid; it's a good looking dog! Hee hee.

Illustration Friday: Flawed


This cook is happily putting her meal together but something just doesn't look all that right in that bowl of hers. This is something I drew for a company newsletter a few years back. Bon appetit y'all!

Illustration Friday: Pale


Carlos had all the answers. Laurie just sat there with a "pale" stare on her face.

Who can relate to Laurie? How many times has this happened to you? Believe me, I know exactly how Laurie feels because it happens to me all the time.

Illustration Friday: Contained


What is the opposite of being "contained"? Being free as a butterfly with two big crazy guys chasing you with long cloth nets wanting to "contain" you. Have a good week everyone.
