Moving along, still working my pencil as often as I can. Who would think it would be so easy to fall of the wagon. One day your forget, next thing you know, a week is gone. The first time I was in a car accident, I was 16. A girl broad sided me in my 1986 escort, forcing the car to rock on two wheels and smashing my head in the window. I was most depressed about losing air-conditioning and my tape deck. But my dad said when you fall off a bike, you get the hell back on. So I borrowed their car that night and went to my figure drawing class at the college. Just like that, I picked up the pencil and started drawing again.
I would love to see some other peoples sketches, so feel free to send them to me and I will post them at the end and add a link to your site. Keep on drawing and exploring.
Well 256 days to go! I can’t wait to see what this year brings!

Flying home from Ireland, I started this sketch of the guy sitting next to me. I went back into it because he was so odd, I just had to explore it. He was punched out with rings, tattoos, and piercings. But he was playing a dress up barbie game that my 5 year old niece might play. So odd, I had to sketch him up.

Pregnant lady waiting for her doctor visit, and probably going through all the annoying side effects of bringing a child into the world.

The Zoo, yeah! I love the Philadelphia Zoo. These are sunbears, endangered from Asia. Too many people, why too many today. So I could not get into the mood with so many folks looking by.

Big sharpie, a few beers, and this is what you get on the trolley. No shame in my game.

So I am experimenting with drawing on the iPhone, because you don’t always have a sketch pad near by, but we ALWAYS have our Phone near by. Sad, I know, but true. Its not great, but it works..

Yep, Booboo, sleeping while I watch TV.

One day I forgot to do a drawing, next thing you know its more than a week. Just like that, I fell off the wagon. Let me tell you, it was not easy getting back on either.

More cellphone practice, a guy chilling waiting for trolley.

More cell phone art, which is not great, but fun to experiment with. Some people ask why put crappy art up, but if it is part of learning new teqniques, then I don’t mind. You never are on every day.

My sisters new dog, Gustof, a bit aggressive towards men, Was a rescue. But he grew to love me, sleeping in my bed, and only growling when I rolled over.

A great day at my family cabin. A square cinder block hunting cabin that has 40 years plus of Bencik history in it. For me its paradise, Bencik Paradise actually. Then we went to the state park and my niece and nephew were playing in the water with their water guns.

Niece and nephew in the cabin. I need to work on my kid proportions so much more, so feel free to critique, but I am aware there are problems with this drawings.

Interesting people at the airport, heading home from Michigan. Greatest thing about flying into Atlantic City airport, it just makes sense to go to the beach.

Fairmont Park is straight up amazing. The largest inner city park in America, it goes on forever. I have not even scratched the surface. Unlike Central Park in New York, it zigzagges through the city. This is a pond that has a million water lilies ready to burst thought and bloom. Sl gorgeous.
