Had To Get Out My Works, Today

Unlike a heroin junkie, though, a bike junkie's works consists of patches, sandpaper and rubber cement rather than a spoon and a hypodermic.

I wear neoprene shoe covers over my Sketchers. They have templates to cut the sole, so that they can be used with clipless pedals. But I left the sole alone and use them as rain/wind boots.

Quick, Give Him Mouth to Mouth!

I got my CPR training at work, today. I found the mannequins somewhat creepy.

Come On, Summertime!

Sitting out in my back yard, enjoying today's nice weather, I was really looking forward to cookouts and tiki torches...

I just realized that my old Briko helmet is 6 years old. May be time for a new one.

Weaving fascinates me...

Keeping A What Out For Who?

Inspired by an article I read in New Scientist, a while back. The Cosmos may be peering back at us, at times...

More Devil Girlie

Oooh, she's got a bike!

Yeah, I'm That Creepy Guy

...who sketches you while you read at Starbuck's.

Say "Cheese!"

My digital camera. It's getting old and balky, so I thought I would immortalize it before it gives up the ghost.

Is It Just Me

Or does everyone love a naked devil girl?

A fine feathered friend...

Radder Than Rad

I picked up this old-school skateboard at the thrift store, last weekend. It's just begging for some artwork.

Clothes Rack and Bike

...all in one!

I hang my outer layers of winter riding clothes on the bike so that they come to hand easily, in the morning.

And, drivery, too.

Dark Knight

It's interesting just how hard it is to draw an icon, a figure you have seen your whole life, with no reference image to consult.
Batman, from memory.

Biff! Kapwow! Zang!

Shedding Some Light

One of the lamps in my livingroom.

The Beast

Nightmarish denizen of the underworld, a personification of the hard times and troubles we all experience.

Or, just a dragon...

Computer Dating

Just for you, Big Tex.

I Love Pin-up Art

Too bad I suck at it!
(I just noticed my dyslexia is on display. The date on the sketch should read 01-09-08.)

Cigar Box

I use this little 3" x 6" wooden cigar box as a case for a small set of watercolors.

Business Card Portrait

This is my interpretation of the photo on a friend's business card. Ink, with a light wash.

The wash is subtle enough that my scanner didn't quite capture all of the shading. i probably need to reset the quality on the scanner.

No, I'm not overworked. I just overdid the ink a bit on this.

Another Daily Challenge

In my life, I find that I must make a formal challenge to myself to get anything done. If I say, "I'll keep the house cleaner, this year," nothing happens.

However, if I say, "I will vacuum and dust every Monday, Wednesday and Friday," it gives me a concrete goal, rather than a vague target, and it will get done. (I probably should do this particular one, in real life!)

So, to improve my drawing (I hope), I am following R. Crumb's direction to "Just draw!" To that end, I am challenging myself to draw at least one sketch per day in a sketchbook dedicated to this goal. This is in addition to any other art I might produce.
2008 is a Leap Year. 366 days, 366 pix.

So, I have the flatbed scanner set up, finally, and I am ready to start posting.
Here goes.

This is a hip-swaying hula girl I got, a while back, for the dash of my car. I liked her so well that I kept her in the house.

Cold weather inspired the Antepodean image, and my Jack posed for the other.

Wine and cigarettes...I like wine, but I'm not sure why I put the ciggy in. It was late, and I had had a couple of glasses...

The other page is just some random doodling. Random doodling is relaxing.
