A pirates life for me!


So, we went to Disneyland last week. That's a long time away from the the studio and the blogs. It was loads of fun. My wife and I didn't tell the kids about it until they were already packed and headed to school. We just got in the car and left. They were sooooo excited. And, to make it even better, Grandma and Grandpa flew out to California to join us for a couple days. I did take my sketchbook with me, but with all of the Princesses and rides, I didn't get much drawn. Here are two pages.
You can never go wrong with pirates especially on International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Arrrgh! We got to ride on the revamped Pirates of the Carribean ride. Very cool, but maybe not the best thing to take the two youngest on first. My daughter was kinda freaked to go on anything after that. And while we are at it, here is our run in with Jack Sparrow. Shiver me timbers!

Your sketches really catch the vibe of the park. I like them a lot, they make me want to go to Disneyland.

Yarrrgh! 'Tis a fine crew you have there! The last time we were at Disneyland we passed Jack Sparrow and my daughter said, "Look! It's Jack Sparrow!" With which he was quick to reply, "CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow!" Riot!

Guy, so glad to have found your blog. Love the sketches, as always. We're taking the kids to Disneyland for the first time ever next month--not sure what to expect.
So, cat tacos?

Chris, I'm glad you found this site too. You'll have a blast in DL. It's the happiest dang place on the planet. So, cat tacos? It's a palindrome, duh.

Hey - did you enjoy some Creeeeeeeam Cheeeeese while waiting in line? Did you take dainty tea cups with you to enjoy imaginary tea while waiting for the Indiana Jones ride? Ah. Good times. Looks like you guys had a great time - wanna hear all about it. I just hope you didn't accept any Taco Bell from Strangers.

Hey... I was at Disneyland last week. Judging by how long it took to get out of the park on Friday night, so was everyone else on the planet, so I'm not too surprised that I didn't see you. The sketches are great... too bad there's so many rides and Princesses or there would be more sketches for us to see.
