second option for star belly... this was the original concept that I saw in my head... some sort of mermaid like person. But the original concept drawings were far too stiff, lifeless, realistic... I don't do realistic fantasy stuff... never could. So this fell out of my head yesterday morning... much more satisfying. We shall see if either get done by friday.

option 1 for star belly: the only stipulation is that NO sneetches are allowed. All other boundaries are open. This is a redesign of a very very old drawing from the early 90s. Then, I had a fair concept but poor technique. Maybe this is my chance to set it right... the jury is still out.

I feel as though I have lost a family member. My very first and last
Reds Games that I heard were called by Joe. I listened while mowing
the lawn, baking the donuts, working on artwork trying to build a
portfolio, staying up when I should have been sleeping, or outside
shoveling snow while listening to the Hot Stove League. Joe Nuxall
was a part of my growing up, a voice that I recognized as quickly as
I did my closest friends and family. Sometimes, the only good part
of the entire day was hearing the Reds games, listening to the
rain delays from the banana-phone. He made me smile when it
appeared damn near impossible to do so.

I will miss you Joe Nuxhall, May peace be with you.

my beloved had hand surgery this morning... so while I waited in the outpatient waiting room... all went well. I did a lot of pacing and doodling to keep my nervousness to a minimum.

page from the sketchbook... bad tv, wonder how much it will fall when the writer's strike takes ahold. It stinks now. Oh well, just get up stairs and doodle. More fun with the brown sketchbook paper.
