Day 39 - Mad Man

A quick sketch inspired by 60's ad illustrations and the characters on Mad Men. There's a lot of smoking on the show (which I assume takes place in Flavor Country).

Why is this woman holding a candelabra and looking pensive? I wish I had an answer for you, I really do.

Day 23 - Kid Study

Apologies for the roughness of today's sketch, but I've actually been doing some freelance illustration all day today (hooray!) This is something I doodled during a quick break.

Day 22 - The Sour Plum Fairy

Inspired by this cover of Tchaikovsky's classic. Those may look like sugar plums, but I assure you -- they're sprinkled with Twang.

Day 7 - The L.A. Zoo

I went to the L.A. Zoo to sketch today, and these animals were all good models. In fact, Rosie the orangutan noticed us sketching her, so she came right up to the glass and posed for us!

Day 6 - Dear Catastrophe Waitress

I've always thought the Belle & Sebastian song "Dear Catastrophe Waitress" had a funny title. Whenever I hear it I imagine some variation on the scenario above.
