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.

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.

Sometimes you just keep interesting things around to draw. It’s a habit left over from teaching drawing.
