Do It All Mom

A mom wearing a baby boy on her back with a four year old girl hanging on her leg, typing on a laptop with one hand and mixing up some food with the other.

A mom who does it all. But what mom these days doesn't do it all?

Apollo standing on the shores of the ocean.

3 Kiddos

Carin finally gets all of her free sketches from the April Fools Promotion.

Balloon Dogg

I'd like a sketch of a balloon animal dog

Vlog Moon Rising

I'd like a sketch of myself vlogging. You can get some ideas from my vlog . Cartoonish is better.

The whole time I was drawing this I kept singing a line from a Beatles' song, "I am the Egg Man. I am the Walrus". Not sure why.

Blowing Bubbles

Pamela requested a sketch of her daughter as a fairy. Enjoy!

Welcome Back

Well folks, the documentary is mostly finished. There's the musical score, audio sweetening, B-roll footage to secure rights on and some transitions to fine tune but the bulk of the work is finished. I've missed you. Dare I say the other artists have missed you too.

There's still a few outstanding requests that I need to take care of this weekend. Those are first priority. We are open for business today so if you have a request, we'd love to sketch for you.

Two Fairies

Amber requested a sketch of Mother and Daughter as fairies. It took me a while to get to the sketch (life has been incredibly full the last two weeks), but here is my take on these two.

Thank you for the opportunity.

Request half filled...

The request was for mom and sister to be turned into fairies (apparently a popular theme) based on the pic HERE: I only got to the sister. Maybe I'll get to mom another time... Conveniently the little girl has a butterfly on her shirt so I stole the wing design from that.

Not sure what I was thinking...

Unlike Josh I totally misread this request... I didn't see the fairy stuff and on top of it, didn't realize it had already been posted. So once again Josh beats me to the punch :)

Anyway, mine's just a straight-up sketch of that little girl and since I did it I figured I'd post it.

Broken Wing

Carin requested a faery with a broken wing in an enchanted place and she provided a photo to reference for the face. Here's my take on it.... using ballpoint pen and spending a couple minutes on it..

Dimitri and Barbara

Here's Dimitri and Barbara, in in some kind of block-shading experiment.


A couple of young Sailors heading out to sea.

Girl in a swing...

Quick sketch of a cute little girl in a swing who, incidentally, reminds me a bit of my little girl...

Street Fair

Marilyn requested...
"Somebody holding a sign that says "street fair" on it."

Some people think drawing is a waste of time.

But it's not. It can say a lot more than words can. Drawing, even by amateurs like me, can express humor, sadness, and irony all at the same time....all with just a visual.

Try drawing sometime. It's a great release and you don't have to hold a B.A. in art to do it. In fact, you learn as you go ;-)

P.S. And yes, that is a Chevy hat.

Trains the keeper

Carin requested a sketch of this guy holding the Fifa World Cup trophy. Using my favorite blue ball-point pen I quickly sketched this!
