"Dungeons & Doodles"
One of the favorite additions to our D&D troupe is a minotaur. One of our regulars charmed him and he's been sticking around ever since. What's really fun is whenever we have a visitor who just wants to come and play a night, we give him or her the minotaur to play. The results have been hilarious. One of our friends found out he was illiterate and set him on a literary program. Another one charged him into a pet shop and had him buy two birds.
The thing that has always remained consistant... he is a badass, and he looooves Bimpy the gnome. View image

"Week 25" or "Mighty Ducks"
I start out every week doing a drawing for my partner who teaches school. Each week I remind her what week she is on in the school year. It's always fun trying to come up with fresh ideas.

"Truman" or "Teardrop Restoration"
My partner and I just bought a 1947 teardrop to restore. (We named it Truman, after Harry S.)

"March Quilters" or "Before & After"
Plugging away on the school calendar. Many, many times I actually prefer the quick sketch to the final product but overall I am rather pleased with how each month is shaping up.
TLG's school does a massive fundraiser in March selling, among other things, quilts the kids have made. I used that as a springboard idea for that month.

"Calendar Wolves" or "February"
I have been working on a fun calendar as a fundraiser for TLG's school. The mascot is the timberwolf.
I'm having a great time working on this...when I was on the yearbook staff in Junior High I was tasked with drawing dozens of little huskies doing various activities all through the book so this is bringing back some fun memories.
I have 7 months done and just put February done. I may make a few revisions to it, but overall I'm fairly pleased.

"Date Night" or "Card Giving"
My partner and I had a terrific night last night with another couple. I woke up this morning and whipped out this "thank you" card/cartoon for them. One of the advantages of being a cartoonist is you never have to buy a card and more often than not the recipient is as delighted as if you had gifted them a moon rock.

"Pandering" or "Charity Auction"
It's time of year when I get roped into creating some art for my partner's school's charity auction. In past years I donated some of my figure drawing but this year I thought I would lighten things up a notch.
After perusing through my sketchbook she informed me I should expand on a little doodle I had done of a hippo playing tennis. Which I did.
But because I am me, and can't stop, I went ahead a did a theme. One of the members in my Artist Way group used to dance ballet in New York and I was so inspired by some of the pictures on his walls, I went ahead with this one.
And since I was on a roll, why not go for the iconic Heisman pose?
After I was done with all these though, I realized what would probably go over best, here in San Francisco, home of the newly minted World Series champions was THIS:
Absolute and complete pandering... hopefully it'll sell well and earn a lot of cash for the school.
My friend printed them out and it's something else to see your work PRINTED. It came out and I gasped, "They look *professional!*" Awesome! :)
