#356 – Stockingcap Bananapeel and his Artichoke Rocketship

Hanging flowerI only title it that way because the longer I stare at this sketch, the weirder it looks.  (It’s actually just a very minor doodle, inspired by this beautiful photo.)

#330 – Life on wheels

Again, I’m continuing work on this collection of 30 vehicle sketches.  After drawing these four, I looked at them and realized they actually tell something of a life story.  Hopefully not mine.

Anyway, I did a bunch of other vehicles today as well — here’s the full set.

#329 – Vehicles in vogue

Part of this week’s vehicles series, these are all based on advertisements in recent issues of Wired magazine.  I’m sure if I come back and look at this sketch years from now, it’ll look amazingly dated.

#328 – Rust buckets

New sketching project this week: 30 vehicles of various kinds.  I’m starting out with a couple of oldies, based on Flickr photos (from users RaeA and KB35).

#320 – Run away! Run away!

Run away!Well, after a very stressful week of inspections and discussions with the city permit office, I uncovered some very helpful information today about our escrow property.  Information that convinces me to run in the opposite direction, before an earthquake knocks that sketchily propped-up house off its cracked and half-sunken foundation.  Turns out there’s a pretty significant reason for those level discrepancies I mentioned earlier.

#316 – Not quite level

Not quite levelDay 1 of escrow on what could be our first house!  One thing though: some of the floors are a bit slanty.  This will require further investigation.

The King's SpeechI watched this movie today, and quite enjoyed it.  Not much else to say about this sketch!

#311 – Folk’s wagon

VW bus

Don’t remember where the idea to draw this came from.  Must have been subconsciously planning for the year ahead, and the possible purchase of a stylish and super-safe family car.  Yeah.  That must have been it.
