Can't think of anything funny!

I love to hide little things in my cartoons.
Makes it more fun.

Cartoon of the Absurd

It always amazes me how many people

miss the humor of this particular cartoon!

Most of the time they will look at it and say something like,

"I don't see what is so terrifying about a little baby duck mummy."

To which I reply, "Exactly!"

"Exactly what?" will be the usual response.

I weep as they scratch their heads.

A Study in Pen and Ink

I saw a drawing of a woman on the Internet that intrigued me.

I liked the way the artist had created the shadows on the figure by

simply making the lines bolder and thicker.

By contrast, highlights were depicted by eliminating

the line completely.

I'm sure this was not the first time this technique

had been utilized, but it caught my eye.

I found it so pleasing that I tried my hand at it

and found that it was really fun to draw.

I hope, should the creator of the original see my clumsy attempt,

he/she will not sue me for plagiarism but rather,

be flattered that it was liked so much.

By the way, the toad stool, rocks and creeping fog, are mine.
Does anyone know why
some posts have wider
line spaces than others??
It's making me crazy!

A side step

Rather than deprive my many fan
of the enjoyment of my vast creativity, while I continue to work on my
artwork and cartoons, I have decided to add a bit of
class to my Blog by way of the written word.
The first story is entitled,
Helping Hands
by Me
Josh sat across the table looking into Ludmilla's eyes.
They were the one thing that first drew him to her and
he never grew bored with their beauty.
"Are you sure that this is the right move, Josh?", Ludmilla asked.
"I have never been more certain of anything in my life!" Josh answered,
but then went on, "The only problem I can see is the packing!
Between work and all, I have very little time to box things up
and prepare for the move to your place!" He said sounding frustrated.
Ludmilla reached out and took Josh's hand in hers,
"You know I am more than willing to lend you a hand..or two." She said laughing.
"Are you sure? I know you are busy,
what with your practice and all"! Josh asked.
"Not at all!" she said.
With that Josh took her hands in his and walked out the door.
As Ludmilla sat the table looking at Josh leave with her hands,
her nose began to itch.
The End

Fell off the saddle

Just finishing a picture that will (God willing) be posted soon.
Hoped to start on the cartoons again but due to a problem with
supplies, tools, equipment and a destructive 5 year old male child
it will be quite some time before I am able
to purchase the supplies I need to get going again.
Everyday it seems I find more stuff either ruined, broken
or missing.
I know!
Waaaaa, call a wambulance!
