Short Summer Sketchy Session Sizzles on Sunday!


Here's some sketches from a quick Dr. Sketchy session held last Sunday at the People's Arts Festival in the Russell Industrial Center. The models were the ever entertaining Satori Circus and the luscious and lovely Lushes LaMoan!

Artist of the Day!

I posed for the super talented Harper Yu Mei Geddes as she created this masterpiece during lunch today!


When she was younger she couldn't say "Jimmy" properly and it came out sounding like "Dzimmy", though she spells it differently than I do. Looks like I need to shave my forehead again. Darn!

National Dog Day

Apparently yesterday was National Dog Day. So in honor of that auspicious occasion here are some more sketches of Jambi.


And lest I forget about the current head of the house, I've included some of the lovely Bijou as well.

Pig-dog

My dog Jambi was something of a chimera. He was part Shar-pei and part something short. His feet stuck out at a weird angle giving him a flippered look. His nose was pink, his tongue was blue, his forehead wrinkled. He had yellow eyes ("I swear to God, yellow eyes!"). His fur was course and when he'd shed, it worked it's way into car seat and couch cushion material making it near impossible to vacuum out. Yet his ears were soft and velvety. And when he lay on his side to sleep, with his short little flipper-feet sticking straight out, he resembled a piglet, curly tail and all.

Sketchy Redux

Here's an alternate version of JJ Plush that I did during lunch today.

Dr. Sketchy is Four!

Here are my sketches from last night's fourth anniversary of Detroit's Dr. Sketchy, featuring models Sassy Katt and JJ Plush! Thanks goes to Sean Bieri for continuing to put on a great program time after time. He pulled a marching band out of his hat for half-time entertainment. A Marching Band! Cool.

Woo! 2

Same girl in the sketch from a few posts back. She looks weird to me. I think it's because her chin's the wrong shape. The paper texture in the background is from a first grade school assignment that is 38 years old! I found it in the same box as Speed Racer.

She kinda looks like my sister.

Here Comes Speed Racer


I don't remember drawing this, but I found it in a box of other stuff I scribbled off when I was a runny-nosed kid. I'm not sure what's going on with the train. Looks like it's about to run head on into a tornado. I figure I drew this when I was five or six due to the rendition of Speed Racer's Mach 5 down in the right hand corner. The writing in the upper corner remains a mystery.
