No beer for me, just a trip to the ER

This summer I made a short trip to Seattle, Washington. Ha ha trip. The city was fun, lots to explore and good food and drink. The weather was even brilliantly sunny. The afternoon before we returned home we were out in Fremont, Earth and I tripped on a curb and almost completely knocked out one of my front teeth. It happened about 10 minutes after I finished this sketch. And no, I hadn't even had a beer. I have to report that the folk in the ER took great care of me, and after shuttling over to an ER with a dentist on call, I was out of there in less than 4 hours! With my tooth wired back in place, and my dignity cratered by a swollen and scraped face. BUT I did not break my sketching (and work) arm or do any worse damage.

Dorky dads and movin' mommas

From the top of the bleachers I captured some of the action at yesterday's homecoming pep rally. 
It is a tradition for the parents of senior football players, cheerleaders, band and dance squad to performed. The dad's of the cheerleaders dressed up as repulsive cheerleaders with the hairy legs and overstuffed shirts...they were particularly scary. I think the kids were somewhere between delighted and mortified. Gyrating moms and dorky dads made for a pretty entertaining show.

Awesome Oxford

Just a week ago I was in Oxford, UK. I believe they filmed parts of Harry Potter movies at some locations there. The whole place looks like a fantastic movie set. Lucky them, for the Oxfordians (?) it is just where they live and to me, super cool movie set. Anyway, a few sketches on location at Radcliffe Square and in the Vault & Garden Cafe´. The last is of Half Moon Pub in Putney section of London.

Just a couple from Spring Break road trip from TX to GA

Going away on a spring break means work will be super busy when I return. Here are the only two images I have managed to scan since we got back. One is my boy and the other a Red Tail on display in Mobile AL at the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park.
