My brain makes me draw stuff that isn't there, and this is where I put it.

Lee’s Dragons: Arctic Dragon

‘Sup. It’s been awhile…Since June 18, according to my last blog post. Life has been, well, nuts. I’ve made art over the last 3 months, but not as much as I’d like. If you follow the Toby’s Brain FB page, you’re pretty aware of all the “real life” things that have been getting in

I Have A High School Graduate?!?

Yeah, that title is accurate. Somehow or another, my oldest son suddenly became high school graduate age. At the same time, my youngest just graduated 8th grade and is on to high school. It’s been a whirlwind busy week of graduation related “stuff”, and none of it has completely sunk in. I may be actively

New Shirt Alert: A New…Plunger?

Well, here we are in May (?!), and I’m finally getting around to releasing a new shirt (and if you want to skip my rambling and go straight to decorating your torso, and you missed the other links, you can go get yourself the new PMD Wars shirt here). This one was almost ready to

Happy Mother’s Day 2021!

It’s that time of year again, when we collectively pause to appreciate the people that either brought us into this world, raised us, or brought our own children into this world. It’s been a challenging year-which is almost becoming a new cliched thing to say, unfortunately-but while I’m sad to have not been able to

Gallery (and Stuff) Update: Insert Witty and Creative Title Here

I told you my hot streak of blog posts at the start of the year wouldn’t last. It’s been a month or more since my last post here, but, as is usually the case, I’ve been keeping busy. I’ve been working on Inside Toby’s Brain a lot, as well as focusing on my latest sewing

Who’s Got the Best Smile?

Four weeks into 2021, four new blog posts?! Yeah, I don’t know what’s up with that. I can tell you right now I already don’t have a plan for next week, so my streak likely ends right here. It was good while it lasted, at least, though, right?

These posts also have been taking a considerable

Xmas Card Envelopes 2020, and Some Stuff

I think at this point it’s safe to assume all of the xmas card envelopes I illustrated are in their respective intended hands, so I’m going to go ahead and share them all here. As I mentioned…somewhere, I returned to the theme I stumbled onto last year: Totally Reasonable Uses for a Plunger. It proved

Inktober 2020 Recap

Just a few months late with this one. I intended to do the annual Inktober recap right after I wrapped up, which was a week or so into November. But, life sidetracked me between October and November, and the crunch of getting the Xmas cards done (which probably still haven’t all been received yet) and trying

2020 Year in Review

Well, here we are. 2021. Time to take a look back at the year that was to gain a little perspective while planning for the year that is. I could take this post in so many different directions, and despite having a little outline of things I want to remember to cover, I’m still not

Lee’s Dragons: Arctic Dragon

It’s that time of year again! My wife had a birthday, so she got another dragon illustration!

This year’s dragon for my wife’s birthday: the Arctic (or Polar) Dragon. This clocked in at about 56 hours and 4 minutes, give or take. It’s a slight departure from the
