All I Seem to Post Nowadays Are Placemat Drawings

Neptune

Sometimes ideas for radio shows and placemat drawings collide while waiting for your fried chicken to arrive. Apparently Neptune has heard of the pirate Captain Betty. Betty returns to Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show in May.

Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood?

"Can You Help Me Get Home?"

I met this fellow downtown (Muncie hipsters call it "DOWNTWN") outside a popular bistro Tuesday evening (4/11/17).

Yes, it's another placemat drawing. I made this one at Bob Evans while waiting for my pot roast.

This is also my 1000th post.

Please send gifts.

Blast from the Past: Back Again to Lapin Agile

Lapin Agile

Here's a blast from the recent past courtesy of a sketch book from last year. I was in Muncie Civic Theatre's production of Picasso at the Lapin Agile in 2016 and I was asked by the director, Lysa Frankin to make a cast drawing. Here's a section of that drawing, based on a sketch by Lysa.
