I was experimenting with water soluble pencils and did this. I’m not particularly happy with the way it turned out but I’m posting it anyway.

Defective Toilet Seat

Filed under: CARTOONS — Colby @ 5:04 pm

There is also a certain tile in front of the restroom door that does the same thing. But only when entering. It has no effect when leaving the restroom.

Old Rancher

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 3:21 pm

Friends of mine were in east Texas, met an elderly couple at a diner and started up a conversation which they greatly enjoyed. They took a photo of the old rancher and asked me to do a drawing. He was wearing glasses and they didn’t want those in the drawing. I couldn’t see his actual eyes because of the blurriness of the photo and reflections on the glass so I had to make something up.

Asian Festival

Another drawing I had around the studio and realized I had never posted it. It’s from several years ago and I don’t have a good image of it but you’ll get the idea, I hope. Two young girls putting on the final touches. Adapted from a photo from an Asian Festival in Dallas, Texas.

A Journey To The Cross

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 5:36 pm

I was asked to come up with art for  a religious concert. The event, titled, “A Journey to the Cross with Jesus,” was a chronology of Lent and Holy Week with musical selections in six sections. 1. Ash Wednesday, 2. Following Jesus, 3. Triumphal Entry (Palm Sunday), 4. Gethsemane, 5. The Cross, and  6. The Resurrection.

I had to work quickly because I thought I might have to go out of town. I didn’t, but that’s another story. I chose to do simple drawings, concentrating on hands to illustrate the action. I positioned them in the shape of a cross and used typical Easter pastels to color them.

Your kids are all grown up now and are living their own lives. It’s so nice to keep in touch with them.
