EDM #34- Fall Leaf

This is a little bit of a cheat since I think this leaf is a result of weird weather, not Fall; but it did look Fall like.

Bad Fuel Day

In response to going over (way over) $100 to fill up the big ol' truck; I created this graphic for Cafe Press shirts. I know the high price of fuel is probably forever and other countries have had this burden for a long time, but I can't help but think of all of the people who are not in the lucky place I am of working at home. So for those of you for whom fuel prices have changed the quality of your life, I give you this graphic for perhaps a little smile.

Urban Vinyl

My of my great passions is for Urban Vinyl or Designer Vinyl, this is an example of one of my custom toys. I have just had the honor of being asked to participate in a Halloween Custom Toy Exhibition at The APW Gallery (see link in sidebar) in New York. I will be posting my entry as well as other toys in the coming days. Customizing toys is another great way to use your art skills as anything goes when making the toys unique.

EDM #6- Childhood Toy

I have a very "now" kind of memory. My childhood is for the most part a mystery to me, but I remember vividly buying this stuffed frog from the drug store in Twentynine Palms while visiting my grandfather "Pappy". I remember seeing it on a high shelf and getting it down and cuddling it. I have kept it for probably 50 years. It has survived countless moves and a dog who used it as a pillow. I did this drawing 3 times before getting the expression right and although it is dirty and sort of droopy I still love it.

EDM #164 Camera

This is my recent birthday present of an underwater 10meg point and shoot. We are going to Hawaii in October and this is for snorkeling. We were going to buy a housing for one of my other cameras, but this was actually cheaper. I can't believe how prices have dropped and quality increased.

EDM #183- Dangerous

Well, some of you know our Ford 350 is named after the T-Rex Sue. We need something to cover up a scrape on the rear quarter panel (never go through drive-thru with a 21 ft truck after having acupuncture ). So I thought of doing a picture of a scary T-Rex and it would also fit the weeks challenge.

EDM #76- Flower

Flowers are something I like to look at but not to draw, so this was interesting. I have several other flowers in my garden that I will try also, but I thought I would post this. I have not posted for a couple of days because of working on a new study for our graphic novel. It is over at Urban Signz. I also cannot go out in the sun because of a stupid face treatment I am having to do so I am cooped up and I look like I have some sort of horrible skin disease.

Tomorrow we are going to the Clark County Fair and I will wear a big hat and maybe a veil (grin) and hopefully do some fun fair sketches.
