A lot of the time I’m just drawing what’s on the kitchen table, in this case drinking glasses. One is actually a Bonne Maman Jelly jar that we use as a drinking glass.

I’m afraid these collards sat in the refrigerator too long. They were so fresh and crisp when I bought them but now they’re wilted.

I was in Vienna for a few days. Naturally I was trying to fit in as much as I could and didn’t make much time to draw. This is a drawing from one moment alone while waiting for diner at the Cafe Schwarzenberg. The Vienna cafes always serve your drink on a metal tray with a napkin.

A couple of drawings from the best barbershop in Milwaukee. It shouldn’t be surprising that a barbershop called Stag has a few animal trophies on the walls.

When Ariana is painting Claude sometimes wedges himself between her and the back of the chair. He either wants to get close, for warmth, or he just wants the chair all to himself.

I thought I would draw my vacation beard before I shaved it off for New Years Eve. I think it’s also the only drawing of me wearing my glasses. I better get used to it as I now need them to draw on the small Palm Zire screen.

Yaaay, it’s Christmas and we got a new toaster from my mother. She noticed that we kept the old one working by jamming clothespins into the slot to hold down the lever (kind of a fire hazard). You get a lot of burned toast using this method.
