The Man from E.G.G.

A place to put my time-wasting doodles, based upon the exercises outlined in the "How To Draw Animated Cartoons" book by Preston Blair.

Oh, How Life Intrudes

Folks, maintaining this blog is going to be next-to-impossible in the short-term.

Here's why.

As previously-mentioned, my home PC is dying and I have no access to a functioning scanner. My new job does NOT afford me access to either a scanner or the Internet, either.

My new schedule has eradicated those "Father-Daughter Days" as well. Oh, we'll still be drawing, but there will be fewer regularly-scheduled opportunities to do so. (The graphic posted here is a crude picture of Junior Asparagus (from Veggietales) done using the Windows "Paint" program, BTW.)

It will be a little easier to maintain my non-cartooning blog, HERE. If anyone misses me, just go there.

I'm hoping I'll be able to afford a new PC, scanner and IP once those larger paychecks start rolling in. We'll see.

This blog has been fun, and I've met lost of fun folks through it. I hope to be back here soon. I just don't know how soon!

What Next?

It was an amazingly doodle-free weekend that just ended.

The only thing I could muster was yet another drawing of The Little Puppet Boy, pictured, left. Mariel just didn't want to draw!

My old PC at home has been dying a long, slow death. Part of that death included no longer talking to my scanner. Yep, I've been scanning these drawings at work.

Since I'm starting a new job next Monday, my scanning capabilities will be in question unless I am able to get the discarded computer my buddy, Bill, gave me up and running.

I am going to try to make that happen this Thursday - the only "day off" I will have before the new gig kicks in.

I really appreciate that folks check out this blog and leave comments. As in, "really, really appreciate it!" I'm going to try to keep drawing, alone and with my daughter, so I can keep having fun with this. I hope you folks will check back, even if it goes dark here for a week or two.

I leave you with a quote from our friend, The Little Puppet Boy, "Nnnnnnnnng!"
