I enjoyed watching the last season of Masterchef. Chef Graham Elliot just begs to be drawn each time I see him... I finally did it!

the salesman

Did you ever mail off a postcard for something free when you were a kid and a salesman came to call? I hate when that happens!

It's lonely at the bottom

SocMo has decided to throw his hat in the ring for president of the United States. Unfortunately, he could not remove his hat because it is attached to his head. Just one of the many obstacles to overcome when you are a sock monkey running for president.

Stay tuned for further adventures along the campaign trail.

It's a reindeer with an idea. I hope it is for some way to beat this 100 degree heat!

Shiny Nosed Dagnabit

In my backyard, in the heart of suburbia, we now have a doe and a fawn who regularly dine on our roses and drool at our garden. That is why there is a 6 foot fence around the garden. Other critters here include skunks, chipmunks, foxes, and rabbits. The bottom of our garden fence has a layer of rabbit guard fencing running along it. Tiny ants are invading the bathroom, mosquitoes are buzzing... sometimes I think all of nature is out to get me! The one animal I have not seen around here is the Shiny nosed Dagnabit. But I'm keeping my eye out for him. Dagnabit!

the voice

Does country dude here have a wonderful voice... or did he just eat a big plate of nachos? You be the judge.

A random little guy that appeared on my page of sketches one day. I scanned him and then did a bit of Photoshopin' on him

Operation of no return

This is the operation of no return inspired by this week's Illustration Friday word. I am attempting to post an image of some kind on this blog each day. 

RETURN here and take a look. Thanks!

This is just a random doodle that was lying around. I added a bit of soft color and slapped it up here. I am going to try to post some kind of image each day. Whatever strikes my fancy at the time.

It may not be your intention to ignore your kids... but that's what happens when you are linked to that phone.

What will happen? Oh the suspense! Will she dump hot coffee on his head and walk out? Will she stuff the rose up his nose?  Will she drop his phone into the fish tank? 

This is a recent assignment I did on what not to do. Don't take your wife out and then ignore her by fooling around with your phone.

Deja Vu all over again

(click to enlarge)

Here is an entertaining story that happened to me recently. It was the highlight of my road trip.

Last Thursday I drove from Nashville to my hometown in Missouri to gather with my family. That is about a seven hour trip. We left around 10AM and two and a half hours later we were in Paducah KY at lunch time. We ate at a Backyard Burger. I really like their Blackened Chicken sandwich. While we were eating, I noticed a couple eating in a booth. The older lady was wearing a tan turban on her head and had a plaid coat on. The older gentleman she was with had on a red vest type jacket and was sporting jet black hair. I do believe it was chemically enhanced. I commented to my wife about the lady's turban. 

So... we had a great time in Missouri and headed home on Sunday morning. We got off to an early start and four hours later we were in Paducah again. At lunchtime. At the same Backyard Burger. As we were eating our lunch, I saw the same couple come in, order and sit down in the same booth again. She was wearing the turban and coat, and he was wearing the red vest and that unnaturally black hair.

Just what are the odds that I would travel hundreds of miles to be in the restaurant at the exact time to see these people twice? I wonder if this is a good omen for the new year. Has my luck changed this year? 

Let's hope so.
