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.
Bruce and I at his first vet appointment. We could have been separated at birth.
There’s a new character this week:
Bruce the Puggle!
He’s nothing but love. We’ve yet to have a single mean growl out of this pooch.
Feel free to grab and share any of these. I insist.
As I said before, be the irreverence in the crazy.
That’s right… we have to make room for new Bob art… it’s not anything digital – it’s real flesh and blood art!!! (well, paper, pencil and ink)

The second winning candy corn idea comes from someone who doesn’t want any recognition. But it’s a great idea.
Candy Corn was never bad… it’s always been good. Does it have problems? Sure. But at it’s delicious core it’s still just good. Ask Bob the Squirrel if you don’t think so… #MCCGA
