And how!

When I was in art school, some good advice was given regarding a great many things. One applies here. I was told that it's quite common for an artist to find himself/herself with a repeating theme, subject matter, constantly working a common angle, etc. I was told not to look at it as a "rut" that I'm stuck in, but rather something one has to just work through. The good, the bad, the ugly, you just keep chugging along until it's out of your system. Well, the boot theme is one we took on voluntarily, but now that we're in, we're IN IT until the soles are worn right through!

This first was actually done the other day, but due to the busy week, it isn't getting posted until now. So, we bring you...

"We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boot"

And the newest from today:

"WAY Long Laces" or "That Frog is Wearing Rabbit Clothes"

It really was supposed to be a bunny. And somehow a frog appeared. Wearing bunny ears, a fluffy tail, and apparently a clown nose. Shrug.

I know, it's been a while...

It's been a couple of busy weeks, I apologize for the lack of any new additions. Ava and I got a chance to sit and draw this evening. I've decided not only to admit to Br. Tom's mentioning of a possible "boot period" for Daddy and Ava, I've decided to embrace it. So, in light of our "boot period" and Picasso's "Blue Period", I give you...

"The Old Banjoist"

An oddly shaped head, strange beard placement, and perfectly placed line by Ava make him appear to be wearing a Sikh style turban. It is not intentional.

a quick one today

For whatever reason the episode of The Simpsons where Homer wanted to be able to work from home and gained a ton of weight so he would qualify to have to work from home. So it's what came out on the paper today (along with the concept put out in one of my shirt designs):

"Skin Beard"

Right down to the "fat guy hat". Politically correct? Prolly not. Ava wasn't really into coloring tonight, so there's not much there.

Heres the new one for today.


Wicked stripe(s). And boots, for those who might doubt their presence in the universe of the "Sketchies".
