My great grandma would say, “Dogs are the boys and cats are the girls.”
Also I started an Instagram account finally.
If you like my stuff but prefer Instagram to the WordPress format you can follow me HERE.
This particular doodle is for another project I’ve been toying with for awhile. Hopefully I’ll get the time to write it into something I’m happy with. Until then, here’s a taste of what’s in my mind.
And, as always, NEW episodes of Blinky and Sal on Patheos-Nonreligious Channel.
Random doodles from the sketchbook.

I have been so crap at updating, but I’m working on a new Blinky & Sal series I hope you will enjoy. Here’s some doodles from my sketchbook.
Enjoying the nice fat, heavy lines I can get from a plain old black magic marker.
Inked lines with pencil shading.
Most pages are just a stream of consciousness for me. Sometimes it’s nice to sit down to a blank page with zero intent to do anything specific.
A good friend, Jared Norby, has been showing me some new techniques. I’m a strict ink user mostly. But every time we meet he gives me more insights and he has gotten me to experiment with pencil a wee bit.
The pencil, I must confess, does offer a bit more subtlety. I still may like the pen, but I do have a hard time getting slight shading and really capturing the mass. My inked stuff generally has a sharp, flatness to it so this is a good exercise for me.
Although still far from a pencil artist, this is definitely a direction I have mistakenly left unexplored. You can tell I am still a little uncomfortable forsaking my hard expressive lines but I must examine technique this further. I will be honest, coloring things digitally (at least, the way I do it) takes forever. Even though the pencil gradient is unfamiliar territory and it does take more time than I like to spend on my drawings, it might prove a welcome ally. Perhaps even charcoal one day.
