I was hired to create a logo for a new auction website called Larrybay.com, which was launched by the parent company of my radio station.

<--- I based the drawing on my mom's fiance, Gino.

Gino liked the cartoon but asked why I gave him elbow nipples; I said that's just how I draw cartoon elbows.

THEN-- we discovered something obscene...

**Put your index finger over Larry's torso (covering his hand and shirt pocket)

An armless man with saggy boobs. I spend hours trying to create a wholesome cartoon and it still comes out dirty.

Drawing On Golfers' Backs

A guy recently hired me to draw a caricature of his friend, Bill, which was then embroidered onto a dinner jacket.


Well...every year they go to Florida for an annual golf tournament among friends. Whoever wins brings home a 70s-style dinner jacket. Before the next tournament, the jacket-holder must add a piece of "flair" to the jacket.

This year's flair ---> Bill's face.

Note: I prefer jobs like this to drawing whiney, rude kids* at birthday parties who breath on my neck while I draw and repeatedly tell their moms 'this picture doesn't look like meeee'.

*Again, to those interested in hiring me for a children's party: All children are precious and adorable.

Conte Sketches and 30 bones!

HEY! It's been a while. How are yooou?? I've been gooood.

Discovered Conte crayons. Here are a few sketches from last week...

1. Adam, on the Metra to Chicago
2. Old coughing guy, on the Metra coming BACKfrom Chicago
3. My good friend Scott (who sits nice and still)
4. Eckhart Tolle on Oprah

ALSO! I won 1st Place in the Kenosha Art Association competition with "Study of A Girl". And they DID have a cash prize-- $30!
(To put that cash prize in perspective, $30 is worth roughly 2 days of work at the radio station, or 42.86% of my weekly income (thanks to recent budget cuts)....so, THANK YOU for the groceries and gas K.A.A.!!)
