Let’s Play a Game

It’s called ‘Whatever Happened To……?’

We ALL do it. Our minds drift back to our childhood and we begin to wonder…..whatever happened to our best friend from fourth grade …….whatever happened to the seven Schmidt kids, all with names that started with ‘M’ (which, BTW, I still remember….all seven of them!)

Then of course we Google…….just out of curiosity mind you, to see what pops up.

And what to my wondering eyes should appear?

I find that an old boyfriend lives 2.7 miles away from me! Did you get that???? TW0 POINT SEVEN MILES AWAY!

I’m sure we must shop at the same grocery store! Not that either one of us would recognize the other….I hope.

But what are the chances that I moved over fourteen hundred miles and ended up two point seven miles away from him? We didn’t live that close to each other when we were dating for God’s sake!

If I find out my ex-fiancé lives here I'm moving!

It's Official!

I'm officially an illustrator!

No, I was NOT hired by the New Yorker. No, I did NOT sell my book idea to a publishing house. No, I did NOT self publish a comic strip that went viral......

What I did do was buy myself a pair of finger-less cotton gloves to wear while I work on Cindy Cintiq!
So now, at least, I LOOK official!
Can you say  delusions of grandeur......LOL.

I'm officially addicted to the Cintiq, which I have lovingly named Cindy. Cindy Cintiq......I think it's quite catchy. She seems to like it too!

And I've been in a black and white mood lately.

Playing with character development and expressions.
And I need lots of practice with body shapes/types/positions. 
Hence this:

Which, of course, leads my mind in all sorts of directions and story lines........
Every year their mother made them pose for a picture, in their nice new clothes, on the first day of school
.....which then lead to this........
Martin was NOT happy about the first day of school 

I know JUST how Martin feels........lol.

It's All About Perspective

There was a slight disparity between the way Throcky saw himself.......
The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of distinction
A real big spender
Good lookin' so refined......

.......and the way others saw him.......
