Illustration Friday: Worn

Illustration Friday: Worn, originally uploaded by speartoons.

Here is my take for Illustration Friday's "worn." This giraffe is the perfect model for a neck tie. Personally, I'm glad I haven't worn a tie to work in years.

I drew this in Adobe Illustrtor CS3.

I've been on vacation this week. Here is a sketch from the beach. I'll be back next week for some more blogging.

Yes, I'll be gone for a few days. I may send a few pix messages of my sketches this way. Otherwise, I'll see you here next week.

Illustration Friday: Unfold

These boys are enjoying a couple of marshmallows around a campfire. Will there be scary stories? Will a coyote or owl disrupt their outing? Who knows what will unfold next.

6/11/09 Sketch journal about the rainy morning. The duck wasn't in my truck, but I saw a similar scene a few weeks ago. The water fowl have enjoyed this wet weather. The whole world is their domain.

I drew this with a Pilot Precise pen in my Strathmore Sketchbook.

I'm working on a daily doodle today. Let's hope I can make it an actual "daily doodle."

I was thinking about the old cliche, "Hang in there." Sometimes we're holding on for dear life when the ground is much closer than we think.

Illustration Friday: Craving

Cartoon: son to dad, "Well school is out for the summer! I don't know about you, but I'm craving some adventure!"

I'm guessing there are many kids craving adventure this month. Here's to hoping they have an exciting, and safe summer.
