More Online Drawing Madness

Watch me dance in my underwear!

I guess I forgot to erase that extra line above my arm...oh well.

Return of Disgruntled Bunny Man.

Guh. Called in sick to work today. Throat hurts. Germs suck. Rate my drawings is slowly becoming my online doodlepad.

My Nose Thanks You Very Much

This morning before leaving for work, I popped a much needed Claritin pill out of it's packaging. I have pretty bad allergies, especially in the morning, I sneeze excessively and am just a walking ball of snot. It was the very last little white pill, and I grasped it in the palm of my hand while moving over to the trash can to dispose of said packaging. I threw the plastic into the trash can and as I moved to close the lid on the can the minuscule pill fell out of my hand and onto kitchen floor somewhere dooming me to a mucus filled existence.

Thankfully, I had some generic allergy pills in the medicine cabinet. So here they are, pretty little pink things.

2 more prints

2 11x11 sized prints just added to le shoppe. Oh! Also, I added a drawing chat room to my website, hee far just my little sister and Michael and I have been using it. It's ridiculous fun, go visit it and doodle something. Headexplodie's Drawing Board.

More stuff

Since I'm trying to be productive today, I'll post this as well. It's a very very rough sketch for an idea, which for now I'll post to Illustration Friday. I'm posting it now in case I get bogged down with work this week and don't get to draw a better version of this before the week ends.

The Power of Youth Explodes! It's Rock Lee, CHA!!!

I found this awesome website the other day where you can watch people draw, then rate their drawings. It's called, big surprise, Rate My So I signed up and my first drawing is of Rock Lee, my favorite Naruto character. I pretty much never draw manga style, so it was kinda challenging, but I liked using the painting tools on the website. What do you think, masterpiece, or disasterpiece?! Vote for meeeeeee!

So our current obsession is Naruto, and I've had to discipline myself and not watch hours and hours of episodes which is very tempting to do because every show ends on a cliffhanger.

I also updated the Etsy shop and added the following:

- Set of 4 Spider Family blank cards with envelopes
- 1 Grandpa Spider card
- a few small photographs
- an 8x10 painting on photo called "Sodiepop Bots"

And if I can keep the momentum going maybe I'll have a few more items up by the end of the week.

Also, we're doing our big book launch event at Fairyland for The Adventures of Penny, The Rhode Island Red the weekend of February 17 and 18. Yvonne and I will be there signing books, there will be a reading, and you can meet Penny and Henry themselves in the flesh! Join the fun, bring a kid (you can't get in without one), meet a chicken, it will be a grand 'ole time. has all the info.

Speaking of Fairyland, guess who came in to enjoy the park last weekend? NOAM CHOMSKY!!!!! When I heard he was there I went out to find him, just to be like, graced by his presence, and when I walked by and heard his voice I knew it was him for sure.

It was pretty silly, so many of us wanted to talk to him but of course none of us had anything cool to say, and didn't want to disrupt his family outing. It's like he's a rock star for nerds. Or the elite. or whatever. It was just cool to see him walking around with his grandkid and wife, sticking his head through the cutouts of the Three Little Pigs.

Now we are running off to go get pizza, so that's all for the time being!

Illustration Friday: 80's

Fence Girls

For Illustration Friday: 80's. This is a vivid memory from my childhood. I grew up in the 80's and had this neighbor friend on the other side of our yard. I'd stand on top of a trash can to reach the top of the fence and that's where we'd play with our care bear toys. Click on the drawing to be taken to my flickr page where you can view a larger size.

Yep. I've been really into care bears lately.

Illustration Friday: Buzz

What's the buzz these days? Two words. BRITNEY SPEARS.

Will A New Man Help Britney?

Bleh, I can never decide which category to put my illustrations under for Illustration Friday, I kinda wish they never made you do that. I'm always afraid of putting it in a category no on will see, or I just put it under "other" so I don't have to think about it. "Figurative?" "Graphic?" "Comic book?" This week I just decided to stick it under comic book.
