Inktober 2016, Days 1-3:

Been too busy to blog so I’m grouping three days into one post.


Day 1: I feel like I’m cheating because this is just a rough doodle but it was such a long, full day that I didn’t get a chance to pick up a pen until after 10pm. I started with a drawing prompt from the Pose Drawing Sparkbook that reads, “Trying to close an overstuffed suitcase.” Then I thought, “How could I make that funny?” This is where my brain went. Maybe later I’ll do a polished version for Sketchbook Silliness.


Day 2: Since it wasSunday I did some work on a serious (not jokey) comic idea about Jesus as the Good Shepherd. Something about it still feels kinda under-cooked so I’ve decided to set it aside for now, but here’s a sneak peek at part of one panel.


Day 3: A sneak peek at tomorrow’s Sketchbook Silliness cartoon.

The best way to keep on on my Inktober work is to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Sketchbook Update: Inktober 2015, Day 31

Hipster Frankenstein

I squeaked in one last ‪#‎Inktober‬ drawing just under the wire. I drew this late Halloween night after putting the kids to bed and sugaring myself up on some leftover candy.

I managed to do 23 drawings during Inktober. Not bad considering my busy freelance schedule. Plus I got to experiment with a few brushes and styles and stretch my humor muscles a little. I’m hoping I can keep being more active in my sketchbook as the holiday season approaches. Looking forward to Inktober 2016!

Sketchbook Update: Inktober 2015, Day 29


If “The Wizard of Oz” took place in modern times, the Tin Man might have problems getting past the Emerald City’s TSA style security.

Also, I’ve started adding my sillier Inktober sketches to a new site I created just for my humorous doodles:

Sketchbook Update: Inktober 2015, Catch Up

Playing catch up on Inktober (Days 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26). I was working quickly so I just doodled the first dopey puns that popped into my head.

Inktober Sale on Pose Drawing Sparkbook, Expanded Edition


We’re in the final stretch of Inktober!

Doing a drawing a day for an entire month is a big challenge. It’s easy to run out of steam after a couple of weeks. To help encourage you to finish out the month, I’ve marked down the Pose Drawing Sparkbook, Expanded Edition (ebook). It’s now 50% off (was $15.00, now only $7.50) from now until the end of October 2015. The Sparkbook includes hundreds of drawing prompts as well as six mini-chapters of tips and info designed to inspire you to put more life and personality into your drawings.

I hope this helps you finish Inktober with a bang!
