ear bomb

Another quickie sketch to fill a peaceful Saturday afternoon. Where did this one come from......can't say. Could it be because my phone keeps ringing, and ringing, and ringing.........HELP ME GET AWAY FROM THE RINGING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I decided to pull out the ol' pencil...I was too lazy to fill up my Lamy Safari with ink. I like the feel of organic lines that's hard for me to achieve with pen and ink....I have to confess though, all the time I was drawing I wanted to make it tighter with pen and ink. I need to break through that constraint.

Alas, a return to caricature of political figures........a quickie before going to bed:

Fat man cookin' in color

A few days ago I posted a quick sketch of a nice little man cooking. I have finally had a little time to put some color to it. I don't know if I like it as much as I did non colored, except for the oven mitts, those came out better than I had expected. This is watercolor and Noodler's ink.

fat man cookin'

I spent some time cooking yesterday and today. As I got ready for bed, I pulled out the ol' sketchbook (since I couldn't sleep) and started doodling. This is what came out. I'll put more detail in later, and possibly some color, but I was happy with the start...
more to come on this:

new year doodling

Alas, a day off from work finds me with brush in hand and images to put on paper. This is what leaked out of the brush this morning. There's nothing better than the antique television sets...I could live in a room surrounded by them. The woodwork and craftsmanship put into those old sets puts today's disposable appliances to shame.
