Cedric Hohnstadt declared March to be sketchbook month and invited all who wanted to join him in doing a sketch each day in March. He even created a sketch blog where he posted the sketches each day. Sounded like fun to me so I joined in. I figured if I actually SAID I was going to do this, I would be jinxing my efforts so I just plugged away each day to see how many days I would actually come up with a sketch. I didn't to too bad.
Today I whipped out a quick little gator in the morning. Never got anything else done so it looks like this will be my final sketch for this project. I threw on a little Photoshop color on top of the purple pencil lines and brush pen ink... and there you go!
It's been fun. I'm hoping to post more sketches. OOPS! I said it out loud and probably jinxed it...

So, I drew a sketch of a girl. I was basically done when I realized she was standing there, holding her hand out and staring off into space. It looked strange. I decided she needed to have something in her hand to be looking at, but what? Something long like a flag or something. Nah... a flag is no fun... how about a critter of some sort. I started drawing a weasel like animal but it morphed into a possum somewhere along the way. So here you have it... a girl and her pet possum. Possum Girl. Coming soon to a comic book near you.

Once upon a time I was a little kid. Hard to believe, eh? That was a looong time ago, but I still have a toy I played with back then. A sock monkey. That sock monkey was the inspiration for a character I designed that I named SocMo, which is a shortened form of sock monkey. I'm still trying to decide what to do with this character. He could be the next Mickey Mouse. It could happen. Right? I'm waiting for some direction on what SocMo needs to do. Where is my muse when I need him? Probably sipping coffee at Starbucks. I better get over there and buy him another round...

So, the Illustration Friday word for the week is "STIR." I thought I would take a couple of minutes and see what I could do with it. The first thing that came to mind was someone who stirred things. A chef type. But also a Superhero type. After I had the guy mostly sketched out I realized that a super hero needs a cape... so I added a cape. Then I remembered that they all seem to wear their underwear on the outside of their pants. So I did that too... and stuffed his jacket into them. Nothing says Superhero like whitey-tighties. So now I kind of have a Captain Underpants with a spoon. I'm not even going to hazard a guess what he has been stirring...

I'm hoping that a picture of a unicorn, dolphins and a double rainbow will lure some eyeballs here from all over the internets. I need some magic. Maybe a large eyed little kid and some fluffy, big-eyed kitty cats next...

I have participated on the Dueling Banjo Pigs blog. If you want to see lots of pigs playing banjos... that's your place. But today I thought I would draw a possum playing a ukulele. Why not? If you are looking for something to draw and need an idea, try a ukulele playing possum.
