Still drawing in my Sketchbooks

Most of my drawings these days are in my sketchbooks, very few large scale works lately, have pens will travel, and I do.

Back to Work

I started out 2017 with an idea for a comic strip parodying the words and actions of Donald Trump. I found that his insanity was not only painful to behold, but also almost impossible to keep up with - what do I make fun of now? I found with five or six completely outrageous, if not heinous actions or comments per day I felt overwhelmed.
So I focused on other artistic work.
Here are some photos of things I see and find interesting.
Sometimes it's the Rocky Mountains that inspire me, sometimes it's an old fence with weeds twisting around or maybe the way telephone polls and street lights can appear like giant sculptures.

Waiting for Greatness -3

I'll admit - I'm confused by this recent dislike and even outright hatred of knowledge, intelligence and experience from certain corners of our political landscape.  Here's a look at those dreaded "Elites"

Waiting for Greatness - 2

The second episode/installment of a new comic strip idea looking at current events and in particular how people assess the political scene.

New Stuff in the Sketchbook

Here's a few pages from my sketchbook.  As usual, I'm trying out characters or creating little comics.
