Inktober 2019: Now With 100% More Plungers!

I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to do Inktober at all this year. I’ve had too many other things on my mind, too many other projects and outside “real life” stuff vying for my attention. I figured I had to at least give it a shot, though, and if I was

Enter the (Forest) Dragon

I’m pretty proud of that title…cuz, like Bruce Lee…Enter the Dragon was a Bruce Lee movie…my wife’s name is Lee…I’m a big Bruce Lee fan…I’m a big fan of my wife…it’s allllll connected.

Anyway, it’s September, so that means it’s time once again for another annual tradition I started (this being the fourth year): drawing a

STOP! Moleskin Time.

Hey, look at that. I posted last week and said I would post this week, and here I am doing what I said I was going to do. Time to post the annual summer camp moleskin sketches.

As I mentioned last week, summer camp this year was an emotionally challenging one for me. It is the

Obsession, Compulsion, and a Hobby.

So. This is my first post in how long? I have no idea where the summer has gone.

That’s a lie. Time passes as it always does, and I continue to be oblivious to it’s passage until a big enough chunk of it to be noticed has slipped away. I also am aware of the things

An Age-Old Question: Chicken-Squid or Squid-Chicken

Well, which is it?
This began as a sketch in Affinity Designer on my iPad so I could experiment with some of it’s features I downloaded it for (like mesh transform and texture maps). I never got around to that as this sketch took on

Happy Mother’s Day 2019!

Here it is, the 2019 Mother’s Day card for my awesome wife!

Another year, another card for my wife on Mother’s Day. The dragon/kids keep growing. It’s always a challenge to come up with a new image, as I usually try to have it reference something

New Shirt Friday: 10 Things for Your Torso!

It’s New Shirt Friday time! As promised, here’s the much anticipated (well, not really) 10 Things shirt!

I wish I could say I came up with this design idea myself, but it was my middle son that inspired this. I was going through a gazillion variations

New Shirt Friday: 100% Plunger Monkey Approved!

You know, I should have titled all these weekly posts as New Shirt Friday: (insert appropriate and/or witty subtitle). Oh well.

Anytacos, it’s New Shirt Friday again!

I like the badge/stamp motif. I came up with several variations of this particular design (not uncommon for me) and struggled to

New Shirt Alert: Eye of the Tiger 2.0

It’s later than I’d like, but it’s still New Shirt Friday! Despite the kids being home for April vacation this week, I’m still hitting my weekly goal, which feels good. I spent a lot of time this week tinkering with a whole variety of different shirt ideas in between life and parenting interruptions. I was

NEW SHIRT FRIDAY: Bang Your Head!

Look! A consistent posting pattern! How long will it last?

I can’t answer that, so enjoy it while it lasts.

In case the title wasn’t obvious enough, I’ve decided Friday is going to be New Shirt Friday. At least until I make it through the various new shirt ideas I’ve got. This week’s offering targets a particular
