This is probably my favorite Inktober drawing so far. Bone Joan is an important character in Kekionga’s history, and although she has been referred to any number of times, this is the first time I have actually drawn her. 95 more words

Happy Autumnal period! It’s hard to define the beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, at least until the first of October makes it “official”.

There’s a shark in the park, but that’s no a problem when it’s a Pajama Shark. My first thought on seeing these two little drawings of Thresher was that he had sort of a Goofus and Gallant thing going on: I seem to remember that standing up on a swing, while tons of fun, was against the grownup’s rules, while there was nothing wrong with sitting on a bench reading your library book in the sunshine and fresh air. 185 more words
