I watched a lot of cartoons and movies. I draw incessantly and carry a sketchbook everywhere. I work in animation and self-publish my books. There are monsters in the streets, don't wear red. Mad bulls and monsters hate that color. I still watch cartoons.

When all else fails...doodle!

Photoshop CS2. Background is an etching by Johann Wilhelm Schirmer's Aus dem Park Chigi. That's the Red Queen on the upper left. Okay, I lied, not really. And just for the record, I did this on my break. Enrico and I had chocolate cake. Yum. I'm rambling, aren't I? 'Nuff said.

I got nuthin'. One of those days. I hope all of youse out there are having a better go at your day.

The cosmic energies encourage you to be creative and relaxed -- and really, who are you to naysay them? This is a great opportunity to play without feeling guilty, so take full advantage of it.

That was from my horoscope. I'm not in the habit of resorting to divining my fates via the cosmic crap shoot of stars and planets. I'm in a funk,'kay? But it did say I should take advantage of it. Thus, the doodle above.

Be well, all.

I did some etchings (dry point and line etching) back in college and loved it. Here's a site of Printmaking Techniques.

And a link to the image I used for the background above. Here.

Well Ronnie, what can I say? I dig the evident maturity in your work. It comes through clearly,even in the fast doodles. Good show.

I like the guy with the big nose, he looks unlike anything I've seen from you. The girl on the bottom right is especially nice, too.
