oil change sketch

My son and I went to get the oil changed in the car today. It took forever. I started sketching a sad guy. My son suggested that I add a mullet, and it really made the picture work. This is the mullet-master.
The time stretched on and we both decided to sketch things together. This next picture is a combination of both of us having fun.We started laughing hard enough that some of the patrons of the shop started looking at us funny. We disregarded them and kept drawing. This civil war picture was our next doodle. While we were drawing, my son said, "Draw a big bird in the sky", I took him literally, and drew "big bird." We laughed and laughed. It was a good day at the oil change shop.

The caricatures are great but you capture the office stuff (and the atmosphere)so well too! Such a contrast!
