I Got The Ball !

Filed under: CARTOONS,Sports and Recreation — Colby @ 11:32 am

Referees hear this protest a lot.

And, while true, getting the ball first doesn’t keep it from being a foul.

I actually did a cartoon about this before ( but recently I came across a sketch I had done and decided I liked it and even though it might be repetitive I’d draw it anyway. The sketch, by the way, was from yet another meeting or clinic or whatever when instead of paying attention I was drawing cartoons, a habit I haven’t broken since my early school days.

Creating GRAND Memories

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 11:44 am

I have had the privilege of doing some illustrations for a fantastic book that offers many great tips and activities for all grandparents. Some of the people in the illustrations may look a little familiar.
The authors did a great job of organizing and presenting a wide range of ideas to help build memories with your grandkids and this book will no doubt inspire you to think of even more.
Check it out for yourself or think of it as a nice Christmas present. And let me know if you think you recognize anyone in the drawings.

Red Sash

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Tags: , , , , — Colby @ 5:57 pm

While surfing the net I came across a photo of a model, was intrigued by the sash she was wearing and decided to draw it. I changed the color of the sash to red (it was gray) and de-emphasized her anatomy to draw more attention to the sash.
