Paul 3/31 Sketch 21

Self portrait...of a kind.

"April 1.  This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four."

~ Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson, 1894 ~

March 31!!

I drew this today for a friend whose birthday is tomorrow. I should have drawn & mailed it a couple of days ago, I know. A wizard is never late, but her birthday card will be. (4x6" marker and pencil on chipboard.)

BTW, thank you Jody for hosting this and getting us all to draw daily like we should be doing!

Day 31 - MANDA!

what to draw what to draw.....

Paul 3/30 Sketch 20


Well awhile back I did a sketch where gramps was telling the kids his Tall thought I would reverse the roles on how kids like to tell their stories or how their day went. I can't believe March is already coming to an end. Yikes. Time is flying to fast.

March 30 (almost done!!)

Watched "Hugo" last night, sketchbook in my lap. So many great faces and costumes. I'm going to have to watch the film a couple more times. Spent too much time looking down, trying to capture all the characters.
Yes, I technically drew this yesterday, but I colored it in after midnight, so it counts as my March 30 sketch.

Day 29 - Manda

Elephants drawing elephants... some quick sketches this afternoon ;)

March 29

Senator Walrus daydreams of performing at SeaWorld...
Decorated another envelope to mail a contract to a client. Yes, those are custom stamps, too. I had them made for postcards back when the postage rate was 5¢ less. So, for this letter, Im overpaying 9¢, not including the surcharge of personalized postage. This contract better be worth it.

Paul 3/26 Sketch 16

Outta my head.

Here's one from last year.....Jody

This one was just too horrible NOT to share two years in a row. If you're not about to vomit after seeing these two, you just might have a stomach of pure steel.

Paul 3/25 Sketch 15

Long night, long Sunday. I took a break and lay down on the deck in the sun while my daughter did her drawing homework. I looked up and saw something like this face in the clouds:

Day 25 - Manda

ill have the time of my life song from dirty dancing came on the radio today, and this is the image that came to my mind... not sure why lol

Weekend Drawings

From Friday night (March 23):
My daughter was in her High School production of "The Wizard of Oz". I did the monkey in her honor.

From yesterday (March 24):
I'm not sure where this came from in my head. I was playing Scrabble® with my mom and started doodling while she was working on her words.

George Segal!! - Day 25

Yeay! I finally get to draw one of the actors from "In Character!" George Segal is pretending to be a woman in labor. I love this book!

iRobot - Jody

It's not quite Will Smith, but it's done in a few seconds. I'll do another one before the Willenium is out, I promise! I used to have terrifying, super-real, nightmares about robots malfunctioning and killing my family. I think Matt Groening has the same fear (as he mentions in a lot of Futurama Commentarys) that robots are a bit scary. 

Good Day for a Dandy

Day 20 - Manda

Something i finished for someone today. Their kids are as opposite as can be. =)


Been busy paying the mortgage. LOL. So the best I can do 
is a page from my notebook I did a couple nights ago.

Day 19 - Manda!

Been super busy today with an art job... but watched once upon a time tonight on the computer. aaah it started out slow, but that tv show is pickin' up now! anyway was testing out drawing snow white in different ways..kinda lame.. oh well!

Day 18 Manda!!!!

hey drew this.. i know its not st. pattys day anymore, but i was watching star wars, and a friend of mine and i were on iscribble and we drew this up. its Darth Vader saying "Dont even think about pinching me" On st. pattys day.

Sort of Tim Robbins

Oddly enough, I grabbed a magazine at random, flipped it to the page with the Tim Robbins article on it. Went to the house where I"m housesitting and what do you know is on TV when I flip it on? Shawshank. Very apropos but I had hardly any light for this one (being lazy) so I kind of gave up on it. 
Actually, my contacts have been in way too long and I was super tired which is more reason for me to have given up.
