I was recently gathering some reference and found some great photos of Charles Dickens, so I had to do a quick painting. The guy had some crazy hair.

Go Bulldogs!

So, today is my 20 year reunion. I know, I'm an old fart. I did the yearbook cover back in '88. The mighty Bulldogs. You're shakin' in your boots. He's like a friggin' super dog. Intimidating. Anyway, yesterday I did a quick painting of the 2008 dawg. Still pretty tough and trim, unlike me. I don't think 20 years has been kind. Enjoy.

Illustration Friday: Hoard

My son loves to build stuff. He hoards cardboard boxes, toilet paper rolls, cardstock, rope... you name it. He can build whatever he wants from duct tape and paper. A little McGyver.

Best question ever

I went to my daughters 1st grade class the other day to show them my artwork and how I make a children's book. First graders always come up with some of the funniest questions, mostly unrelated to artwork, and this time was no exception. One little girl was wiggling a loose tooth with a bloody paper towel in one hand, and franticly raising the other to ask me a question. I called on her and she said "I thought you hair would be blacker and that it would cover more of your head." What??? It was hilarious. I didn't know how to respond. Hey kid, I'm sorry that I'm a balding gray haired man. I'm sorry to disappoint you. I promise to try harder...frickin' kids today.
