These were done while watching a Nature program last week about the increasing use of prosthesis for house pets and companion animals. I thought it was an interesting show and I got to quick sketch out three of the main subjects. A crocodile tail is apparently very important to their locomotion which I never knew before. This particular crocodile took very well to his prosthetic tail and the ingenuity, creativity and skill involved with making it was really amazing.
I was asked for a wallpaper version of this, you can download it here. (1920 x 1080)
I’ve started the house hunting process recently. It’s not something I find very enjoyable to be honest. Everyone says the hunt is the best part but about a month into it and I’m not having a ton of fun. At any rate it gives me something interesting to draw. So I think for the time being I’ll be drawing the duds, the close calls and hopefully, my first house.
This one was on the small side but looked like it had potential. Situated across from an elementary school which is nice, ultimately it was a dud. It spent a little too much time as a rental and was in pretty rough shape (at least for what we’re prepared to do.) Too much work for too little house.
Cute little one level. The front stoop was a little rough, and it shared a driveway with the neighbor but that’s okay.
The deal breaker was the crumbling plaster in the shower of the one and only (small) bathroom meant it would have to be redone almost immediately. No thanks.
I think container ships and large boats are so interesting. I think maybe because I’m a little bit scared of them or of any large machinery that lives in water or at sea. These are a couple drawings I did based on photographs to test out a new pen (Noodler’s Flex Creaper,) eventually I’d like to find a spot on the river where I can draw these from real life. We don’t get ships quite this large out here but what we do get have caught my eye.
Testing out a new pen, Noodlers Creaper Flex. A nice pen for drawing but it has a weird smell believe it or not. I’m hoping it fades with time. Whitey Ford is a subject I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while but being mostly white, I wasn’t sure of the best approach. I think these turned out alright, so for lazy drawing days I may stick with her as a subject.

Improper display of parking receipt, in other words, I put the parking stub on the street side window instead of the curb side window. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
