remember in grade school when anyone that was different was teased. I remember a few freckle faced kids who were teased a lot. As adults, freckles sure don't get the attention they used to...I can't even remember the last time I noticed someone because of their freckles. Wierd.

more color?

Here is the sketch I posted a week or so with a quick color. This is my son Sam. He makes a pretty good character to draw because he is such a "character" in real life.

illustration friday: Canned

have you ever talked to someone who had obviously been in sales all their adult life, then, when it's time for them to close the deal they give you their "look"? The other day I was in a car dealership and saw a few of the older car salesman and wondered at what point does that canned look stop some point doesn't it stop working for most of us? Anyway, here is my attempt to show an ageing sales guy flashing the canned look that always used to "work" for him.

Here is some color on the sketch from a few posts promised. He may be slow, but he's just fast enough when it really counts.

Yesterday was a really fun day. It was time again for our utah county vw car show. I entered my 1961 ragtop bug. This is a car I've restored over the last several years. I have entered it in the show before, but I was always up against some very nice show cars. My car is not a true show car...I restored it all myself, painted it in my garage ect. It has some flaws. So this year I entered it into the daily driver catagory...and...I won. I won two tropheys yesterday. One for best daily driver and also a people's choice award. Add in winning a nice prize in the raffle at the end of the show, overall, I'd say yesterday was a very fun day!

super soaker and more!!

I posted a little sketch of my son with his camo shorts and a squirt gun last summer...well he's a year older has another pair of camo shorts (this time blue camo) and he's moved up to much bigger squirt guns! I thought another drawing was in order. The other two doodles were just laying on my desk, so I thought I'd post them too.

Slow draw McGraw

I sure haven't had (made) much time to draw lately. I got to work early and found a little time this week so I sat down to doodle...out came this turtle. I didn't realize it when I first drew him, but I think I must have been very influenced watching Kung Fu Panda...anyway, I started to paint this up, cuz I kind of liked the way it was headed. Stay tuned for a color version.
