August 1, 2008 Illustration Friday

The cops were calling it an industrial accident. But after going over the books at Uncle Maury's Institutional Grade Tuna, I knew that Maury's fishing fleet had recently expanded into new fishing waters. It was a turf, or surf war. I had a feeling a new gang was in town, and that is why Maury had gotten canned.

The topic this week was "canned".

Another one of my pals from work is mild mannered Zach. One day Zach was cleaning all the door mats. Being the terrific friend that I am, I followed along behind him singing "Na-na-na-na nah... MATMAN!" I think they really just keep me around there to keep the morale up.

The Randinator

One of my many friends at my day job at HP is Randy. Today over lunch Scott and I decided that Randy's night job was that of professional wrestler. His nickname is The Randinator. He has a ferocious demeanor, and his trademark move is "The Tape Gun", where by he wraps his opponents up in the ropes, and then launches them across the ring shouting "AIR MAIL!!!!" Yeah. Sometimes we get carried away at lunchtime.

July 25, 2008 Illustration Friday "Enough"

"I'd had enough. They'd killed my partner. They'd kidnapped my girl. But this... this was the last straw, they'd smashed Ma's cookie jar."

The topic this week is "Enough". I thought about having a smashed chair, and kitchen table in the scene, but it just looked too cluttered. Let me know what you think.

Monkey Walking

Here is my monkey. Click on the image to see him walk.

I think I'll draw a jungle scene for the background. What do you think?

** UPDATE ** Jungle background added. I noticed the motion is a little jumpy until it gets all the frames loaded, so please be patient. I think it's because of the increased information in each frame. And, now I'm thinking it really should be in color, I mean, it just makes sense. So, if I get some time this weekend...
