Day 573: a certificate

27.07.15: yep, a toilet paper roll (which I'm sure will show up later in the project...) with certificates on the sheets... Not a positive message but it's what came to me...

Day 571: a shoulder shrug

25.07.15: happy birthday to my beautiful and favorite wife (whom I'm never able to do justice...) I hope you enjoyed your day. 

Day 570: rain boots

24.07.15: yeah, I got kids, howdja know?!?

     I must admit I find Peppa Pig (in her golden boots) difficult to get on model... So few lines to hide behind, I guess.

Day 569: a starfish

23.07.15: sorry this came out a little dark, but than again, it is dark under the sea...

     Starfish is saying: there sure are a lot more new anchors down here since Don Pescecibo moved to town...

     You may have to check out day 3 and day 409 to get it...

Day 568: a crash-test dummy

22.07.15: how I feel at the end of today. Going on holiday with two smallies is a lot of work...

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Day 567: plateaus

21.07.15: Cowboys. Had to be Cowboys. And if it's Cowboys, I go straight to Morris... Again...

Day 566: a windmill

20.07.15: you say windmill I think Don Quixote (of La Mancha...) but I have already the classic shot so I went with this... Hope you like it!

Day 565: Virginia Woolf

19.07.15: I am sorry. I am so SO sorry!! I blame Wikipedia!! I know the name Virginia Woolf and I know she was a writer of some importance (which in or self is probably insulting to those who know her work...). So what do I do? I Google her and get Wikipedia which abbreviate her entire life to "Woolf suffered from severe bouts of mental illness throughout her life, thought to have been the result of what is now termed bipolar disorder,[1] and committed suicide by drowning..." This my drawing. To all Woolf-fans out there and anyone else that find my drawing to be in bad taste, I am sorry. I am so SO sorry!!

Day 564: a ruler

18.07.15: she is more a dictator than a ruler, but what are you gonna do...
     I know it was it hacked and obvious, but considering I spent all day packing and traveling with both the Boss and Junior (who screamed for the entire flight...) it's the best I could. Hope you like it.

(Also sorry for labeling yesterday's s ketch wrong...)

Day 563: a harmonica

17.07.15: thought process went as follows; harmonica -> someone playing said harmonica  -> a prisoner playing said harmonica -> Wolfgang Manitoba playing said harmonica in prison -> Wolfgang Manitoba playing said harmonica in prison is torture for Reynard Fechs. And there you have it. The bad tangent with Reynards nose was a pure accident but I noticed too late and I am going to bed!

     And if you want see more Wolfgang and Reynard drawings, comic book pages, pin-ups and news, check out and like

Day 560: behind the scene

14.07.15: where to start... Too ambitious. Wish I had a few more hours for this one. For those of you who know your Hergé/Tintin, will notice a bit of a tribute here. And who knew that when I introduced Murray the Mussel, he would again make his presence known?!?! (And who knew that genealogical meaning of Murray is/was "of the sea"?!? Pretty cool!) And that is Regina Dessay Patti singing the famous aria Questa è la mia puzzolente, è il pesce orrible!!" from the opera Del Mare cozze e la Sua Perla. And you know she would not have made it without Jon Pay, PI!!

Day 559: a propaganda poster

13.07.15: this is based on an actual propaganda poster from WWI (don't you love the political incorrectness of it. I could have gone either "soldiers eat babies, that's a fact" poster, but I thought it was just a little much...) and that is a young Jon Pay falling for it... Then again I already showed you that he was in part of the Boys from Barracks C(C).

Day 558: a tractor

12.07.15: another braindead evening. Ended up ripping off Pixar again (if you're gonna rip off anybody, make sure you rip off the best). Tractor is based on the tractors from Cars, both the concept drawings and the finished design. I had nothing more than that till my wife said : leave it at that, you don't need no b/g... So now I HAD to draw a b/g...

Day 557: a dragon fly

11.07.15: for the first time in forever, I decided to watch a movie tonight. That is my excuse anyway.... When I saw the theme I said I am not drawing another knight on a bug just for the sake drawing another knight on a bug. Got come up with some really cool back story if I'm doing that... Ended up drawing another knight on a bug... And a hack job at that...sorry...

Day 556: pie à la mode

10.07.15: we already established as early as day 129 and again on day 552 that Gus might not be a connoisseur of the cuisine, but the man knows his pie à la mode. Anyone else want to take stab at what's wrong with his dessert?

Day 555: a sense of humor

09.07.15: you need a sense of humor to survive in this house... And a perfectly placed banana-peel may just get through the day...

Day 554: a prism

08.07.15: the kid is giving me a hard time this evening, so I had to have his help to explain what I had actually attempted to draw. Don't think the Boss is impressed neither with his explanation or my drawing... Chocolate buttons trumps Prism any day....

Day 553: a hippo

07.07.15: gonna translate my "penmanship" cause it is so good!

Boss: the song worked!! (I will call her Liyra (don't ask...)!!)

Me: she couldn't sing "if I have a million dollars...?"

Day 551: a strawberry

05.07.15: there are something you don't mess with, like Christmas trees, and strangely enough, for me, a stawberry. Just let it be its natural, beautiful self!

     (Plus I wanna go to bed...)

Day 550: a sweatband

04.07.15: yep, this is what I used to look like back in the day when I used to play tennis...

     And of course this marks one of the last, if not the penultimate, benchmark, day 550. Last benchmark will be 600, followed by done...

    Happy 4th of July!!

Day 549: a birdhouse

03.07.15: just realized that if I had been really intelligent, I would somehow tied this sketch to yesterday's. Maybe have a detective bird taking a statement from a distraught mummy bird whose eggs had gone missing... Somehow that just got really disturbing in my now glad I didn't go with that idea...

Day 548: an egg

02.07.15: okay, class, here's a test to see who's paying attention. How many eggs are there in this sketch of Jon and Gus?
