Day 31 of 366

Saw a simple neon sign that said COFFEE. It made me think of late nights like tonight trying to make a deadline and downing coffee to stay productive.

So for all the other Night Owls out there this late night cup of Coffee is for you.

Day 32 of 366

Pit stop on my drive home from LA to SD. Always inspired to draw after teaching a new crop of students. Today at Starbucks saw a cake pop sign.

That inspired a new branch of artillery known as the Cake Poppers. Obviously some bugs still need to be work out.

Day 33 of 366

For some reason the bathroom door had beware written on it. Don’t worry it was safe.

But do beware of the mad Cat Bomber!

Lately I have been doing light lay-ins with a marker. For this sketch I just wanted to see where my pen would take me. It’s a bit easier to do this in a smaller sketchbook because you can see the picture unfold faster. Larger sketchbooks you can get caught up in not wanting to mess up the drawing and that is when you lose the fun and spontaneity of your sketch. Shake it up and try it out.

There’s a dog at the coffeeshop named Bandit. So tonight I came up with a group of ex military space fugitives running from the law. I call them the Fat Katz. Here we have #5 AKA Bandit.
