Love it!! I'd'a lost patience after the fifth sign.

Also like the palendromic blog title. (Didn't catch it the first couple times through here; just thought, "hmm...odd.")

I love his face; he's totally lost! And it's true, there are some places where it feels like the arrows point everywhere and the map doesn't match the streets! Wonderful job, as always:>

Your colors absolutely reach out of the computer screen and grab me - really great! His expression is priceless - and I don't know how you came up with that many arrows. LOVE IT!

Guy:

I just bought your book Mrs. McBloom Clean Up YOur Classroom. Wow! The illustrations are fantastic.

What do you use to do the outlines of your characters?

Is it black ink? Prisma pencil?

Plus it looks like you use watercolor and gauche is that true?

Big fan.

There are signs with arrows pointing both ways. Are you trying to tell us something, Guy? It's ok, you can trust us.

His expression says it all! I love your arrows, especially the thick fat ones :)

So many nice comments. I don't even know what to say. Thanks a bunch.

Dave: I'm glad you got my book. I hope you enjoy it. It was done all done in acrylic. Outlines included. Thanks again.

Nate: How do you know this wasn't a illustration of you when you're older? You don't know. I never have trusted you. I think it's the shifty eyes.

I'm really impressed with your stuff man. You have so many talents all wrapped up into one. You can really tell you spent a lot of thought and effort into making each sketch/piece into it's own idea. What can I say man, I really enjoy your work. I will bookmark your blog and make sure I keep comin' back for more. Thanks for the coffee breaks in the morning, REALLY fun stuff.

If you get time, please check out my blog and let me know what you think. Thanks!
