Lumberjackin'

Eugene the lumberjack, together with his long time business associate Abraham the beaver, head off for a day of cutting down nature.

Strut your stuff

I was not at all happy with the last drawing I posted ("Real men have moustaches that wear their own boots"). As I was pondering the reasons why I disliked it so much, I flipped through my sketchbook and stopped on the page that was filled with this character. The doodle of this guy strutting across the page appealed to me because it had personality. 

For me personally, I prefer off-the-wall character designs. After all, this is cartooning and I'm not at all limited to the confines of reality...so why keep things looking normal! I have to remind myself to exaggerate proportions, and poses, and expressions. 

I need to strut my stuff more.

Facial hair footwear

Real men have moustaches that wear their own boots. 

Sadly, I am not a real man. My facial hair has no footwear.

I have returned

It begs the question...what condiment would go best with socks?

While you ponder that, I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm back! To recap, my wife and I, along with our 2 boys, sold our home and moved roughly 5 hours (by car) from where we were living. The house hunting didn't exactly go as planned, but we eventually found and bought a beautiful lakefront home. The catch is that we don't take possession until April 2016. In the meantime, we are temporarily renting a house while we wait. 

My studio space was hastily thrown together, but it's functional and I should be able to post my humble doodles on a regular basis, whether you like it or not. 

It's good to be back.
