Sketchbook Month: Play Ball!

Forever and always my favorite baseball player, Johnny Bench. I can't believe the season has started... PLAY BALL! And thanks to Cedric & Jennie Hohnstadt for a great idea and all their work in putting together Sketchbook Month. I had a blast! I've been sketching since I was a kid, a lot this month, and will continue for the rest of my life. Stop in at this blog for more in the future, and check out past doodles in the Sketchbook category here, or in my Facebook Photos.  


Sketchbook Month: Grimace

Penciled the old-fashioned way on a drawing board scrap, and a color version, done digitally.


Sketchbook Month: The Bug on the Hill

One last Bedbugs sketch before the month is over. Done in marker on bristol, and yes, it's another Beatles reference.


Sketchbook Month: Rug Rat Rage

Whether toddler, teen or adult, we all have those days...


Bedbugs Hit The Road

Midwest fans of comics, kid's books, Dr. Seuss and Chuck Jones cartoons: Stop by and see me in Madison or near Chicago the first weekend of April, and bring the kids for tons of Bedbugs Fun!

Inside Westfield Comics; Madison, Wisconsin

I'll be at Westfield Comics in Madison, WI Saturday, April 2 and Keith's Komix in Schaumburg, IL on Sunday, April 3 leading a Cartooning Workshop for kids, reading and signing my Night of the Bedbugs children's book, juggling, showing music videos and more. Click the links for more info.

Besides books, I'll have Bedbugs tees, sketches, buttons, marbles, tattoos, as well as the assorted superhero, comic book or Trollords sketches. See you here or there!


Sketchbook Month: Friday Fun!

Goofin' with characters known and unknown... Read a Picklehead and Olive strip at Blue Moon Toons if you missed it in Big Funny. One last weekend breather now before we finish Sketchbook Month with a flourish!


Sketchbook Month: Liz


Sketchbook Month: Ol' Devil

Winter ain't over yet. Spring was put on hold and us in our place as rain fell all day yesterday here in the Twin Cities, turning to snow last night. So, one day I'm bracing against the wind, holding tight to my umbrella (-ella-ella) and vacuuming water from my basement floor, the next slip-slidin' on treacherous roads and blowin' off the driveway. But it'll warm up soon again, right? And the Easter Bunny will give me a big hug, yes? Right...?


Sketchbook Month: Baby & Bunny Hug

Still in the Spring theme for another entry for Sketchbook Month. This one was drawn digitally on the Cintiq again, but with a different pencil/brush than I usually use. I'm pretty sure I'll ink and color this one up for Easter.


Sketchbook Month: Spring Has Sprung!

Sure, it was official yesterday, but regardless, Spring is in the air. Here in MN, temps are warming up a tad, and The Melt is upon us, but slowly, steadily so things aren't getting too sloppy. I've always loved frogs, especially their cool, knobby little "fingers." No doubt they had an influence on how I draw fingers on the Trollords. I drew this digitally on the Cintiq, trying a few brushes I hadn't really used before, experimenting. Some are more successful than others...
