Confirmed...I Stinking Love This Show

Man, I love Mythbusters.
I don't know if it's the fact that I'm getting a little older or what, but there just seems to be less and less on tv lately.  I find myself watching (if I watch anything at all) shows that are entertaining and at least a little bit informative.  Mythbusters, for me, has been my go-to entertainment for years and since they added the majority of their seasons on Amazon Prime, I've been kind of on a Mythbusters bender lately.  

Anyway, I got asked earlier in the spring to do caricatures at a few local jazz and art festivals, so I did this as a demo to hang in my booth.  I cheated and sketched it out a little first, so it's not a true "theme-park" sketch where you just go at it with a marker, but that's ok.

Maybe I'll do the Pawn Stars or American Pickers guys next, I bet they'd be a LOT of fun to draw. :)

Of course I'll draw your family...if you leave

Family portraits / caricatures are one of the most fun things I get to do for my friends from time to time.  They're always so appreciative and gracious.  The only bad thing is that I find that they are often occasioned by the family's departure from our lives. 

Such is the case with my buddies from church, the Livings family.  George is probably one of the most creative writers I've ever known and he's been on staff in our music department for several years now.  I credit him with re-igniting a passion in me to bring artistic excellence to the church in any area I can.  To credit his immense creative contributions to mere talent would be to diminish the sheer amount of hard work he puts in to writing, composing, and directing the multiple musical performances at our church each year (along with the other extremely creative and talented members of our staff as well, of course). 

His wife as well has shown that yes, Baptists CAN DANCE IN CHURCH...and dance well at that!  We'll miss them greatly at First Orlando, but it's my hope that God blesses their efforts at their new home church in Staten Island, NY.

Best of luck, guys!

I Don't Always Draw Miniature Golf Stuff...

But when I do, I prefer to draw for my buddies from Congo River Golf here in Orlando. They're great guys who happen to go to my church and gave me a shout to do some doodles for their scorekeeping app.  Here's a few of them, hope you like them!

Founding Fatherhood

Happy belated fourth of July, everyone!

I have not posted in a VERY long time which may seem totally lame (and it is), but I assure you that it's been because I've been very busy with some VERY cool projects at work.  Been traveling, teaching at church a bit, and just enjoying time with my wife as much as possible.  (Been getting noticeably more mushy and sentimental in my old age).

Nonetheless, here's a belated little doodle I rushed out on my lunch break on July 4th.
