Well, Hi there, Jack!

At a recent event I had an unusual moment of peace and quiet as the guests finished up their drinks and snacks, so I started the drawing you see here, strictly from memory — One of our favorite actors, eh? Sure thing… No photo source, just winging it a bit. And drawing this reminded me…

Kelly’s Heroes

When I was asked to draw a sort of different family sketch recently, it hit home. This was for the wife, Kelly, going in for surgery for breast cancer, requested by the devoted husband. Great guy who obviously adores his wife. He wanted a sketch of the whole crew for her to have as a…

Terrifying Diagnosis

Blog Repost: Last winter, about this time, I had a bit of pneumonia. Docs did some scans and X-Rays, gave me antibiotics and all went well.
