Happy Halloween. I took yesterday's sketch and turned it into a digital image.

I drew this in Adobe Illustrator.

Trick or Treat!

Trick or Treat!, originally uploaded by speartoons.

The trick-or-treaters will be coming tomorrow. Are you ready? I thought of a clown as the main character because I've known a few friends who are not afraid of any characters... except clowns.

I drew this in my sketchbook with a mechanical pencil.

Stump Speech

Stump Speech 10/28/08, originally uploaded by speartoons.

A stump speech sounds... well, wooden, dead, kaput. What about the rest of the tree? Why cut down a tree just so someone can babble on and on? That's what a blog is for. Get with the times!

From my sketchbook, 0808, page 130.

I can't wait for the election to be over. The ads are running fast and furious. Everybody is saying how awful their opponent is. Is there anything good to say? will everybody be able to kiss and make up once this is all over? I sure hope so.

Illustration Friday: Repair

Illustration Friday: Repair, originally uploaded by speartoons.

Drawing for Illustration Friday's word: "Repair." Frankenstein tries to repair the monster. The monster isn't thrilled about the ideal.

I used this illustration to experiment with using flat shading and no lines. I also made liberal use of layer masks in Adobe Illustrator to use the shading in the shadows.

Werewolf Walks His dog.

Werewolf Walks His dog., originally uploaded by speartoons.

I was thinking about those clear, star-lit nights when I've taken the dog out. The other night, I heard a scream in the distance.

I don't know if someone was serious, if it was some kids joking around or even if it was really a human scream. It was too far away to tell and it blended with distant freeway traffic and a train whistle. So much for a peaceful night! Then again, it was perfect for an October night.

I drew the illustration in Adobe Illustrator.

Cartoon: Dog missionary

Cats, originally uploaded by speartoons.

This is a sketch right out of my book. I had to add the type so it would be readable. Those camera phones aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, but at least you can see the drawing.
