Clyde the tortoise has an evening snack of dandelion.

Drawn with Noodlers Konrad fountain pen and Konrad brush pen with gray wash. I’m a little late to the Inktober party, got some catching up to do! View in Instagram ⇒

Quick sketch in the heat

2014_09_17_frontGate

I did this day before yesterday around noon – it must have been 103 degrees out. I swear I could see the watercolor drying on the page. The paper buckled more than usual from the quick dry action I think. This is the inside of the front gate at work.

This was from a while ago, but I’m experimenting with updating the old sketchblog from my phone & thought this would be a good sketch to try it out on.

… and with roller skates! Note: don’t try this at home, she’s a trained professional. (Also note: there may or may not be a glass of champagne involved. Very advanced technique.)

Jack, J.J., Tanner, Seth

At our dining room table a few minutes ago. From left to right: Our son, our cat, our nephew, our son’s best friend. Jack and Seth are locked in battle on their laptops playing Dota 2.

I drew Jack as Jack drew me

Last night my son came by my studio / man-cave (as my wife calls it) and asked if he could draw me. So I took the opportunity of drawing him as he did that.  Just for fun I looked back on this blog to see how many times I’ve drawn him drawing – here’s the result: here in 2010, here in 2009, here in 2008, here in 2007, here in 2006 (although that sketch is actually from 2002, I just posted it in 2006) and here in 2005. It’s funny to see him growing up in the sketches! That guy loves to draw.
