Dogs in clothes.

April 16, 2010

The dogs that live in our house wear clothes.  Not all the time, mind you.  Just when they go outside.  That doesn’t make it right.  One dog has a sweatshirt just like the one in the picture.  That’s bad – but it isn’t the worst.

One of them has a fur coat.

And just so there isn’t any confusion, I’m not talking about the fur coat it was born with.  During winter when our dog does it’s business, it does it in a (faux) fur coat.

Has the world gone mad, or just my family?

My Father loved puns.  He made them all the time.  He thought they were hilarious.  I did not.  The whole family would greet those puns with a uniform groan.

Now look at me.

Dad would be proud.

Would a rose by any other name…

Reuse, reduce, recycle (just not everything).

April 12, 2010

I saw recycled toilet paper in the store.  The label said it was made with “80% post consumer content.”  Rationally, I know it was recycled from other types of paper.  However, I can’t seem to shake the irrational fear it may have been toilet paper before.

Intimidating in the ring.

April 11, 2010

Hmmmm.

I like the idea on this one, but I’m not that happy with the painting.  It looks pretty rushed.  Probably because it was.  Oh well.

It’s only a 15 watt idea.

April 9, 2010

It wasn’t until I drew this that I realized ideas in cartoons are symbolized by lightbulbs because they are “bright ideas.”

That is probably something I should have figured out earlier in life.

Ninjabread man.

The Ninjabread Man.

Someone needs to update the classic story with this twist.  It would be the best children’s book.  Ever.

He never has bad hair days.

April 7, 2010

Wow.  With different eyes and a squiggle on his shirt, this guy would look like Charlie Brown.

Now it’s ultimate frisbee.

April 5, 2010

The term “ultimate frisbee” is a misnomer.  Adding an exciting descriptor doesn’t really make a sport any more impressive.  If it did, everyone would be playing extreme horseshoes and ultra bocce.

Cowboy coffee.

April 4, 2010

The above picture is a painted version of the very first sticky note cartoon I drew over a year ago.  It’s something I still doodle variations of when I can’t think of anything else to draw.  I’m not sure why.  My guess?  I’m always dreaming of a cup of coffee strong enough to make the cup grow facial hair.

These pigtails are not as cute as some.

April 2, 2010

My 3 year old loves pigtails and ponytails.  My wife can whip her hair together in about 30 seconds. I, on the other hand, cannot.  It seems impossible.  The bands that are used to hold her hair are tiny.  VERY tiny.

I can’t get the bunch of hair into the band.  I can’t even get half the hair in the band.  I swear it just doesn’t fit.  Yet, it works for my wife.

I’m not sure how she does it, but I’m thinking magic.

Pink. It’s his favorite color.

April 1, 2010

For anyone who doesn’t know, this quote is taken from the Aerosmith song, “Pink.”  The first live concert I saw as a teenager was an Aerosmith concert.  Aerosmith has been around quite awhile, but I was shocked to learn that Stephen Tyler is 62 years old this year.

He looked at least twice that old when I saw him.

He suffers from lungfish.

Please take a moment to admire the finely drawn clavicles in the above picture.  They give the subtle impression of the patient being nude without showing actual nudity.

Albino polar bears.

March 30, 2010

At least they wouldn’t generate much interest from me.

Don’t hug trees (unless they say its okay)

March 28, 2010

Please don’t be offended.  This is not a joke about environmentalists.  It’s a joke about snobby trees.

Ignore the full moon.

March 26, 2010

I realize this drawing might be of questionable taste.  I’m hoping that by including the word “phase” into a joke about the moon, I might have lifted it to a higher level.

If not, I’m okay with that too.

Surprisingly average eyesight.

March 25, 2010

I wear contacts.  I wish I didn’t.  They take too much time to put in and take out again every day.  I would gladly wear glasses instead, but for one thing.

My ears.

As I said in an earlier post, my ears are over a quarter inch out of whack.  The disparity is much more obvious when I wear glasses.  So…

I don’t wear glasses.

Exercise routine in futility.

March 24, 2010

You may have noticed that I have only been posting one drawing a day instead of two.  With a new baby in the house my energy level and stamina feel like they are on par with the fellow in the picture above.  I’m hopeful she will develop some regular sleep patterns soon.

I think she can.  I think she can.  I think she can…

A black hat.

March 23, 2010

The “black hat” trend hold true in many situations.  Here are the ones I can think of:

  • Old west villains
  • 30’s era gangsters
  • Blood-thirsty pirates
  • The New York Yankees (Yes, technically they’re navy blue, but that’s close enough.)

Liverdance.

March 22, 2010

I’ve known my wife since high school (although we were only friends until college).  At the time, Riverdance fever was sweeping the world.  I remember another friend and I made lots of jokes about Riverdance every time we saw it on the shelf at the movie rental place.

One day Riverdance was playing on PBS.  In some strange attempt to get to know me better, she decided to watch it.  The entire thing.  From beginning to end.

When she excitedly told me she had watched it, I had to tell her that I was only ever making fun of the cover.  I would certainly never watch it.  According to my wife childbirth and Riverdance are the two things in life I can never repay.
