Saddle Up

Drew this while waiting for my Deep Sea Match Game to compile.

Yeah, he’s really really simple, but I like him. And I’m out of time, so…

Carefree Teen (Retro Book)

Earlier today I played around with drawing different kinds of fish based on what I did last night, but tonight decided to go back to the human species.


I think tomorrow I will go whole hog and draw a complete body and not just a head. 🙂

Wet and Wild

From the retro book. Only one because it’s 4am.


Yes, while technically it’s tomorrow, my days don’t end at midnight, so as long as I draw something before I go to bed, I’m still good. (But I do reset the dates on these posts so they show the (in)correct calendar day.)

Can I Give You a Hand?

More from the retro cartoon book.

This time I actually drew on real paper.

Don’t Look Now

So weird, my pencil felt awkward while drawing, and then when I went to erase the pencil marks after inking, the ink started smearing. WTF?

Turns out I had been drawing on the inside front cover, not on one of the pieces of paper. It has a slick coding, so the ink wasn’t drying. I’m assuming a real artist would have noticed that the paper they were drawing on wasn’t actually paper, but the backside of the cardboard cover.

I’m Gonna Tell

Honestly, the only reason I’m continuing to put these up here is because if I ever become a famous artist these will be worth lots of money.


I believe I’ve come to the conclusion that  drawing anything is hard. Even cute little cartoons with less than a dozen lines.

Just to be thorough, the one on the left was done second. I moved to the table and decided to take more time after doing the one on the right, and then I got this far and thought it might not really matter how much time I take. 🙂

We Three Trees

Really late trip to Anchorage means I didn’t really think about drawing today. So here’s just a quick five-minute sketch of some Alaskan trees.

I will be back to cartooning tomorrow, I’m pretty sure. 🙂

Ponytail Girl

I think for the next week or so I am just going to try and copy some of the drawings in the retro cartoon book that I have.


I’m also going to move to a table after this. Until now I’ve just been holding the sketchpad in my hands, and I think I might do a little better if I actually have a firm surface to work on. Yeah, that’s my problem. 🙂

Circoodles (Circles & Doodles) – Day 7

I thought if I drew 100 circles I would get really good at it. But I just got bored really fast and switched to ovals. And got bored with that.

So then I just doodled.

I’m pretty sure that tomorrow all of my artistic talent will burst forth in full bloom. Pretty sure.

Eye See You

I just decided to play around with some cartoon eyes tonight. I finally got a copy of the retro cartoon book that I had been missing for the last two or three eons, and I’m going to start going through that.

Also, as suggested by Lesley, I’m going to be drawing a bunch of circles and ovals starting tomorrow. Of course, that means I could still be doing different eyes…
