Catdad meets Batman

I went to a dance performance last night at Valentine's featuring my friend Robert Tyree in a partially improvised piece interpreting the concept of conversation and applying it to modern dance. I'm wouldn't be able to do justice to the performance by attempting to describe it, so let's just say that it was very good and leave it at that. While waiting for the show and enjoying some happy hour perks I sketched my friend Ben reading a Batman comic.

Speaking of shows, check out The Nimble Owl's post on the newest installation at the Emerson Space Case at the corner of NE 30th and Emerson. The piece is based off a Curious George illustration and was done by Portland artist Luke Forsyth. We all chipped in to put it together and are pretty happy with the results.

I've noticed a few more people are following the blog these days. Thanks a lot and welcome aboard. I hope you find what you're looking for here, as long as what you're looking for is drawings. If you're looking for something else, like pie for instance, you should go elsewhere. Perhaps here. And to all you regular readers who aren't official "followers" you might want to consider signing up. All you have to do is scroll down and look on the right where it lists "followers" and click the button! Then you'll always know when there's new stuff posted and you get to see your snazzy little profile pic in that little box. Not to mention the more followers I have, the more money I get (in my head).

I bought this book a few months ago, not quite sure what I was going to do with it. I certainly wasn't going to read it, but the illustrations inside are really cool and inspirational. Almost as much as the cover. I've decided to try using it as a sketchbook to see if I get any neat effects from the worn and yellowed paper and text covered pages. Below is my first attempt.

In other news, my computer has decided to work today for some reason, but I'm not holding my breath for long. At least this allowed me to update my ipod and eject the library cd that was stuck in the drive. Here's to not having to buy the library a new audio copy of A Confederacy of Dunces!
