The Last Uncle

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 3:13 pm

My Dad was one of ten children; Mom, one of six. Recently, the last of all of my aunts and uncles passed away, ending my link to a very special generation. Tom, a proud USAF veteran, was indeed special. He loved entertaining children. He loved having a good time. He loved having the latest gadget. He loved telling tall tales, some of which were actually true. But most of all he loved family. I am not the only one who will miss him dearly.

Grandkid Requests

Filed under: CARTOONS — Colby @ 11:08 am

Another trip to see grandkids and more requests for drawings. So, sitting on the couch with pad in my lap we came up with these:

The first drawing is for the Birthday Girl who wanted a picture of a fairy running to Toys R Us to spend her birthday gift card. Coincidentally, the fairy is missing the same teeth as the Birthday Girl.


The second drawing is for the Birthday Girl’s big brother who wanted Harry Potter playing Quidditch in a football uniform. Some creative liberties were taken. Yes, big brother is a University of Arizona fan.

Lips of Rose

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 12:51 pm

Just for the fun of it.
This is another one of my “nudes.” The model doesn’t have a stitch of clothes on but I concentrated on the flower she was holding. Actually, that’s not the flower she was holding. I changed it to a red rose.

In memory of someone who was too young to leave us. And to bring some peace to her family.

Another one of those days when I was antsy and just needed to draw SOMETHING. Came up with this teaser.

Inspired by my Pastor’s sermon. At least it proves I was listening.
