This is a thumbnail sketch. It is prob hard to see if you haven't sat at that end of our Cecil's table but heck. Perhaps I will refine it more. Maybe into what I see when I look at it. A lot of my drawings start off this way.
This directly reflects the anxious restless feeling I have to go see my friends and play. I think they are getting bored of it but since I just moved to town it is magical and new. What is in store for this weekend? Gun shooting, Some hippy party in the woods, Some nightlife, Sweetly flirting with every woman I see, and definatley getting sophisticated H-town Downtown.

I realize that the glasses are a little long. I just dont feel like editing these images into perfection. It's the imperfections that make this blog perfect for me.
Found my Eyeglasses! I had left them at Atari. I think its called etru? etra? off Westhemier across from Boondoggles? Boondocks? I don't know. I'm new to town. Anyhow great time eating pizza and such with my good pal Coach. Has it really been 19 years of friendship...Jeesh. Man, good pals are priceless.
I'm not totally blind. Just gettin up in years and a touch of nearsighted... or is it farsighted... I can never get that straight. Ah, such a complicated morning.
Can't freegin wait until payday.
(Special thanks in order to Derek at Etru(atari bar?) for holding them for me with my name around them for SO LONG. You rule. And Pink's Pizza. Best pie I have had in H town. BLOWS away late night pie and is just a block from homebase. )

Quick study in drawing hands. Had to break out of cartoon mode for a second and into the real world. Funny, if I draw enough cartoons I will forget that we actually have 5 fingers. Note on the upper left I switched to a finer pencil width for guides. Left side of Brain was having to fight with Right side of the brain on this. I really fought drawing the fingers arrow straight and in the order that they would logically appear if you are thinking about a hand from thumb to pinky. The balance of analytical and artistic is such a fun tight rope. I need to do more still life/figure drawing.

Here is the Shriner style hat and logo for the Thumb Club. If you don't know what the Thumb Club is you are probably not a card carrying member. If you are a size queen you hate our cause. "Gotta stick it where it fits"
This meeting of the thumb club shall now be called to order!
