A Meek Post

The other day I went over to my brother's house for dinner and as at it was being prepared his roommate and I indulged in a little Sealab: 2021. As you can see he was quite enjoying himself.

We all have our off days ...

I've just chosen to make mine public. Here's what my friend Asher might look like if he were the mascot for a sausage company. I'm not quite sure why he has a gnome sidekick.

"Is that Jesus?"

... asked a little boy in a pack of elementary school kids that walked by me as I was doing this drawing. "Yeah kid. It's Jesus."

Don't worry, he soon realized his mistake. It's not Jesus. It's a tree. For months I've been passing by interesting and charismatic trees in Portland thinking, "that would be a great tree to draw, I wish I had the time." Well this time I cut the bullshit excuses and sat down on the sidewalk to draw one of them. This was part of a particularly good morning walk the other day that included stops at local coffee shop, Albina Press, a produce stand for some apricots and salsa fix-ins, and sitting in the grass by the library while finishing up an awesome Batman comic. Yes I'm simultaneously an old man and a five year old. I would actually be pretty happy to have a walk like this once a week for the rest of my life. At least it won't seem so weird once I get old.
