Oh , Sheldon could have done many things with his life. But trying to be the best dang waffle iron repairmen in Danville, Ohio was his one true calling.

Sketch Day 51 The Arrow Girl

My buddy from high school called this after noon and I doodled this out while we had our usual long winded conversation. After we were all talked out i concluded that : Our kids : all good, Economy: not so good, This sketch: somewhere in between..

Sketch Day 50 Night Moves

so my Mom decided to drop in tonight in and grace me with her lovely presence. I had this bass player started before she arrived but now that I've come back to it... just not feelin it , and I've still got to get ready for class tomorrow. No Cavities Thom? That's awesome- sorry for the random, but it needed to be said! For now, a little bass vibe as I hit the lesson plans...

Sketch Day 49 The Hogelles

The Hogelles first formed in 1962 and their sugar sweet harmonies and crisp high style hairdos were copied and loved by teens from coast to coast. Top ten radio favorites such as "He's so Swine" and "Porkin' Around" started dance hall crazes that are now considered part of rock n roll's golden years.

Sketch Day 43 Scraps

Eldon slipped out quietly with the slop bucket leaving the others to grieve. Seems that amidst all the anguish over Grandpap's disappearance these last few days , Ol' Scraps hadn't been fed, "Good Ol' Scraps" Eldon thought, "he'll probably outlive us all"..

Sketch Day 33 Y= Yodelling Yak

Isaac thought the beast was only a myth . That is until he caught one.
Now the Yodelling Yak was his beloved prize possession.
Never mind that his wife left him over it and the neighbors had reported
the "noise" to the police numerous times.
To Isaac it sounded like the voices of angels.

Sketch Day 32 X = Xanadu, Xenophobic

well .. what I first thought was a letter with some fab potential ,smolders now in a large pile of sketch fail.
"Xenophobic" a cool word meaning "the fear of the strange or unusual" was a home run word. But, after many thumbnail ideas I realized I had nothing, so I went with "Xanadu" and started to create some creepy story about the "Magic Owls of Xanadu" and then... noticed that the owl looked more like something Aunt Elaine would have hung on her kitchen wall back in the day.
So, I just decided to draw Uncle Larry & Aunt Elaine and a friendly firecracker - to blow all this mess up with.

Ok ,a few winks a bowl of soup and some Warren Zevon gave birth to the Wereowl of Xanadu. this is what happens to you if you listen to too much Olivia Newton John. (thanks Jack ; )

Sketch Day 26 S= Siamese

The twins liked to argue about everything. Who was the better looking, who's a better thumb wrestler, who's better at playing Rummy, you know things we all argue about.

Tonight's argument was different though. Tonight they were dining with the Queen and only one of them could be on her good side.
