Election Day 2008

Election Day 2008, originally uploaded by speartoons.

This morning did live up to the hype where I voted. I never saw lines that big in my town for Election Day.

I’m glad people are taking their responsibility seriously this year. That is a silver lining to the financial mess and all the mudslinging we’ve endured.

I drew this in my sketchbook with a ballpoint pen. I added the color in Photoshop.

Trick or Treat!

The trick-or-treaters will be coming tomorrow. Are you ready? I thought of a clown as the main character because I’ve known a few friends who are not afraid of any characters… except clowns.

I drew this in my sketchbook with a mechanical pencil.

Stump Speech

A stump speech sounds… well, wooden, dead, kaput. What about the rest of the tree? Why cut down a tree just so someone can babble on and on? That’s what a blog is for. Get with the times!

One week to Election Day!

From my sketchbook, 0808, page 130.

I can’t wait for the election to be over. The ads are running fast and furious. Everybody is saying how awful their opponent is. Is there anything good to say? will everybody be able to kiss and make up once this is all over? I sure hope so.

Napping in the rain

My wife and I are on vacation while our kids man the fort. They’ll be so happy when they find out it’s raining in Florida today!

I did a quick sketch of my wife while she slept. My intent was to get the quick pose and not to focus on detail. This is pencil and blending stump in my sketchbook.
