Palm Tree

Sunday, June 16th, 2019

I was driving in traffic and saw a landscape company truck with a logo of a tree with big giant leaves. The leaves looked like hands to me.  When I got home  I sketched this out on my iPad.

King Etzel

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

This is a depiction of King Etzel from a beautiful sculpture (Nibelungen-Brunnen, “Nibelungen Fountain”) in Tulln, Austria by Michail Nogin of his meeting with Kriemhild. Etzel is my German family name and I claim him as my ancestor. That’s how I got the Sir Colby nickname. According to the Nibelungenlied (the Song of the Nibelungs), it was in Tulln that Etzel saw Kriemhild and proposed to her. The fountain was dedicated to this event in 2005.

Dryad

Sunday, November 4th, 2018

I came across the term “dryad” the other day and felt compelled to come up with my own version so I conjured up this creature on my iPad just for the fun of it.

It Came From Beneath The Sea!

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Back in my previous life we would show movies to the kids at the recreation center. This was before tapes and DVDs. Before Blockbuster, Netflix, etc. We’d use a biggo projector and actual 16mm film and show them on the wall until we built a homemade canvas screen. The kids would sit on tumbling mats we spread around on the floor.

I would make posters to let them know what movie was coming up. I managed to save a couple of them. Here’s one. The colors have faded and the poster board is turning yellow.

Learning to Swim

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

An idea popped into my head: Baby fish start their lives already knowing how to swim, its instinctive. Human babies work on walking for months, even longer. What if you’re half fish/half human? I depicted a Mermaid Mom teaching her little boy how to swim. Do we call him a Merboy; a Merkid?
