IF: Poem


Here’s a poem I wrote a while back. Sometimes strange things just come to me without a reason. The idea of a toad in a commode sounded funny to me and I went from there. But, frankly, who calls it a commode? Maybe I could expand with other animals “If I had a Scottie, he’d live in the potty.” or maybe “If I had a Gnu, he’d live in the loo.” ??? Well, maybe not. Hope ya’ll enjoy Toadie.


IF: Discovery


Here’s an illustration I made in honor of my son’s All-Star baseball team. Last night they made a discovery that hard work and a winning attitude can bring about amazing results. They won their little league tournament 13-12 in the top of the 6th inning. It was a very exciting game and a huge victory for these boys. We’re so proud of them. I didn’t have time to include the whole team, but here’s a snapshot of my favorite ballplayer. 🙂

IF: Geeky


Here’s my cute little geeky boy, dreaming of the greatest robot ever built. He’s got big plans. Maybe one day he’ll work for NASA! Originally, he had a Yale pennant, but it was brought to my attention that MIT was a better environment for this smartypants. I agree, but I went to a community college, so what do I know about these thing? Sorry Yale, this boy has other plans.

Thought I would try to mix some line work in with the solids to make it more interesting. I like how it came out, if I may say so myself. 🙂

IF: Twist


Here’s a different “twist” on Humpty Dumpty. He really did fall off the wall . . . but at the time of his unfortunate accident, he was actually grinding along the wall with his radical new skateboard. Gosh, dude, you could totally scramble your melon that way. (or egg, as the case may be.) Lucky for Humpty & his Mom, this doctor is very wise and managed to put Humpty back together again without having to call in all the King’s horses & all the King’s men. (and they weren’t covered under his insurance anyway, so that would have been a real nightmare!) Mrs. Dumpty looks pretty worried about her soft-boiled son, but it’s not going to phase Humpty. Why, he’s the next Tony Hawk waiting to hatch!

Happy 4th of July everyone!
