What I Draw When I'm In A Pneumonia-Induced Trance

It's true, I drew these while visiting my new friends at the local hospital. I started out with plain-old H1N1, which turned into Pneumonia (since I didn't get it treated right away-- among other causes). I'm still battling with the Pneumonia part of it, but should be recovered by Monday. I'll try to use this time to do some more posting, before things get back to normal (a.k.a.- crazy).

And... if you like a good Halloween tale, and I know you do, then you might enjoy my annual contribution to the Halloween tale telling tradition. (Yeah, I draw and write. I got A's in all my creative writing classes. Weird huh?)

You can find my short stories here:

My Halloween themed stories are:
• Ghost Story (Not sure how to categorize this one...)
• Big Black Dog (Suspense)
• Bed (Comedy)

And just by way of fair warning, I enjoy throwing my readers off, until the very end of my stories. I like "Twlight Zone" endings, in other words.


New stetch + N1H1 Flu + Pnuemonia = PARTY!

As the title of this piece suggests, I'm submitting this for your perusal from a hospital bed. My wife was good enough to have some compassion on my ADHD and bring me my laptop. It's saved me from slipping into the brink of boredom madness on several occassions. My sketchbook has also been a life saver too.

I should be outta here in the next 12 to 24 hours, and when I am I'll be sure to scan and post the newer stuff I've been working on.

... and most importantly, Happy 4th Birthday Spencer! Wish I could be there Bud.

Animal Crackers & Sketches

Once upon a time, not long ago, I considered working for a craft publisher (crafting supplies, stamps, that sort of thing). I created this in Illustrator for my portfolio.

I really enjoyed this exercise, and I'm fairly happy with the results. Not the sort of thing I do a lot of, but I had fun with it.

... and here are a few sketches.

The beaked creature I drew this afternoon, it started as a doodle, just goofing off. Guess you never know what will come of playing around.

Thanks to everyone who stops by for a visit. Have a great weekend.
