Well I'm sure a number of us were told that eating our Spinach would give us muscles like Popeye. Well that's all a myth and unfortunately I had to learn that the hard way when I was a kid. I mean when Popeye ate some it looked all cool and crunchy but man that's what I get for thinking spinach looked and tasted great like the cartoons. So all I have to say about eating spinach to be like Popeye.........NUTS!! Thanks mom for traumatizing my lil heart with that myth.

I drew this out before I forget. I was at the LA county Fair on Fri. and seen this guy in the parking lot. I tried to remember enough of him to sketch him out since then. One thing that really stood out to me was his really short shorts. lol. I will kick myself over and over again because I forgot my pocket sketchbook in the car!!! There was so many people that would have been great to doodle in my book. It was like a buffet for artists. Arrrggggg!!! How could I forget it!! Uggg. I will now continue to kick myself in the you know where.
Wanted to play around with some tree sketches. Wanted to show more mass on them. There's so many things to master as an artist or at least get a grasp on so I thought I'd try something out of the norm and doodle some tress. A few I tried in watercolor (another thing I'm learning to try to do) and since I was drawing those trees I might as well throw in an Ent while I was at it.

Last night my lil 7yr old was doodling around and I chuckle to myself seeing him in me when I was drawing at his age. I Always had these cool ideas even though they sometimes made no sense but in Kids eyes they are the coolest characters in the world and their imagination just runs with a certain drawing. I thought it would be cool to draw out my lil guys 2 characters and surprise him with the sketch later today. I have no clue what or who they are all I know is one of them is a bunch of webs. lol. Ahhh to be a kid again...hey wait were all kids when we have fun drawing and that's the way it should always be no matter how old or young we are.
Well Technically this is me but not me so let's say it's kinda like my alter ego as a kid. I'm going to be posting in the future some sketches of this little guy (me) and put him into scenes that I remember of me growing up when I was young and all the cool and fun and sad moments of my life's journey. Kinda like me telling a story of things that actually happened but in pictures with this little guy. Okay let's just call it Therapy then. lol

Well my initial idea for drawing a postal worker was to draw out different characters/body types and different personalities n stuff. The drawing on the left was my first take but was looking at it more and I really felt I could push the look even more so that's what I pretty much did with the next sketch titled New School. Was pretty fun doing this seeing how much I could push the original drawing. Heck I think I could even push the 2nd drawing even more. But alas that is for another day.

I was sketching around and heard this song on the Radio that reminded me about of the commercial for Magic Mountain. The one with the old man who all of a sudden starts dancing. lol. If your familiar with the commercials then you know who I'm talking about and if your not familiar with it then check out Youtube I'm sure they have him there. SO in a nutshell I sketched these out and just placed them in a order that I thought kinda worked. Wasn't my intention to make it a sequential but hey I'll take it.
