2019 Calendar cover – more than twice!

Got the 2019 Bob calendar cover finished faster that I anticipated.  Seems funny to pt so much work into something most people will only see twice: once when the put the calendar up and once when they take it down.  But, hey… it keeps me off the streets, right?

Would you like to see this more than twice?  Why not buy a print of it?  You can check it out at Society6 by clicking or tapping here.  20% off + free shipping on this item with code 20PLUSFS ends tonight, October 11th at midnight PT!

More 2019 Bob Calendar news coming soon!

Bob Calendar 2019 – cover progress…

It’s that time of year again.  Every year I marvel at how fast calendar time creeps up on me.  It happens every year and yet I still treat it as something unexpected.

In keeping with Bob calendar tradition, the cover pays homage to cartoonist Bill Watterson’s masterpiece of a comic strip Calvin and Hobbes.

Here is the cover as a work-in-progress.  It’s ink on bristol.  Bill Watterson was/is a very traditional cartoonist so I keep the coloring non-digital. I start with markers and do accents with gouache and colored pencil.  I like all the covers that I’ve done… but I think this one is already special.

Here are the covers from previous years…

I’m hoping to complete the inside calendar art soon.  I’ll keep everyone posted when the calendar will be available for purchase.

Halloween 2018 – Frank and Lauren

It become a tradition for me to take the characters in Bob the Squirrel and make them a bit more “Halloweeny” for October.  Here are the first two in the series: Frank as Ace Ventura, Pet Detective and Lauren as Rosie the Riveter:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month – Sometimes life is nuts…

In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness month I’ve written three articles with more details on our family’s challenge and how our lives have forever changed.  Plus, there are COLOR Bob the Squirrel strips:

Sometimes life is nuts… it’s good to have a squirrel around

Cartoonists have bad days. Rejection is an occupational reality.
