While waiting in line to see Brandon Mull, author of the New York Times best-selling book series, Fablehaven, I started doodling. I came up with this and another dozen or so sketches. I gave away the other sketches to kids who were bored, and/or who liked my drawings.

I borrowed a Bic pen from the ladies at the event; a medium I'm not accustomed to, but I liked it.

Thanks in advance to those who consistently come back in spite of my best efforts to avoid posting work on my blog. I'll try to be better.

Serpenyuo (Ser-pen-yoo)

This is a drawing my son did for a school assignment. The object was to write a description of a creature of his own design, then pass the written description on to another classmate and see if they come up with the same design based on your description. Cool idea!

The creature is called a Serpenyuo (Ser-pen-yoo). It's a snake-like creature, with wings and strong legs and claws.

When my son asked me to do the assignment, I was thrilled. He wrote down his description and based on that this is what I came up with (shy of the black scales which cover it head to tail). He was really pleased with the outcome. He even said it looked "cool". He's my best critic. He tells me honestly when I'm on the ball, and when I've fallen off of it. Thanks Drew! I love you Bud!
