This as supposed to be an Illustration Friday submission but Christmas got in the way. Actually my drawing sometimes gets in the way of Christmas not the other way around. THis was mostly done in Illustrator with some Photoshop embellishments.

Only a mother could love something this ugly.

Another challenging Illustration Friday theme. My first inclination was to go with some deranged individual, most likely a woman with a hormone deficiency. (Just kidding ladies, after all a postal worker would do just as well.) But then I rememebered that I try and avoid the obvious and so I came up with this fellow, someone for whom being unbalanced is an occupational hazard.

I don't care what they say, you can't cut out carbs all together.

Here we go with my interpretation of this week's Illustration Friday theme. Frugality is the mother of invention I always say...or was that my mother?

By the way, did I mention that I created an iPhone app and it went live this past week? It's called Piranha Pool. If you want to check it out, just click on the image over on the right hand side of the page. It's guaranteed to make you smile. Thanks.

Some people just can't quite come to terms with the reality that germs are a fact of life. If they could actually see them, they'd really freak out. They're coming to get you...

Ladies don't you hate it when you get home with that new outfit only to discover that you should have followed your gut feeling that it looked all too familiar.

Call me cheap but when ever I go to a restaurant with a Maitre'D, I get nervous about the bill. Hard to feel truly welcome in those circumstances. My Illustration Friday effort for the week.

And there's nothing stronger than the smell of overripe garbage. My Illustration Friday offering for this week. This of course is hot on the heels of my last post where I said I didn't draw women as often as I should. This should offer a little redemption...

As you've probably ascertained by now, the majority of my cartoons have male characters. What can I say, guys are goofier than the ladies. And we're certainly clumsier. If you've ever seen me attempt to wrap a package you'll understand the motivation for this Illustration Friday toon. My wife , on the other hand, can make a package look spectacular.

If they can get past this, their relationship might stand a chance. My Illustration Friday contribution for this week.

Some people just have too much idle time on their hands. This is my Illustration Friday contribution for the week. I actually had a number of idle type images in my archives but as I try to do for Illustration Friday, I drew up something fresh. Keeps me sharp and addsd to the archives as well. Darn I'm clever!

And that's why coffee is evil... My Illustration Friday offering for this week.

Yeah, I'd say they're worn. Good news is he now has flip flops...

Not much to say about this one. Pretty self explanatory for my Illustration Friday image for this week.

This was an Illustration Friday theme that I could really sink my teeth into. Some cravings are just harder to control than others... right ladies...?

Sometimes adaptation just isn't in the cards. I guess he should have listened when his mother tried to each him how to do laundry. My Illustration Friday contribution for the week.

It's been a few weeks since my last Illustration Friday submission. My first th9ught of cracked had to do with eggs but I didn't want to do Humpty Dumpty. I think this might put someone off eggs least for breakfast.

This si your basic parade of one. However "Her Majesty" might not like to be referred to as basic. My Illustration Friday image for this week.

And what can be more fleeting than a good thought? My Illustration Friday toon for this week.

Apart from my pencil rough, this toon is completely digital. The image was roughed out using a non-photo blue pencil, scanned, then the final image was drawn using my new Cintiq tablet.
I'm trying Corel Painter Essentials which came with the tablet. The drawing was then vectorized in Adobe Illustrator where it was tweaked and colored.
I've had the tablet for over a month but am only gradually getting used to it. Eventually I'll be doing all of my drawing on it.

I was never very good at math either and I have 4 fingers. Did I count my thumb? Oh, now I 'm confused. Did I mention that I was never very good at math?
And no the stool is not the same one as in the last toon I did. This one is from Ikea.

Busted! Some guys should just stick to things like fishing and burping the alphabet...
My Illustration Friday offering of the week.

My latest Illustration Friday contribution. Just between you and me, I don't think there's anything more pitiful than a man with a toupee unless of course it's a man chasing his toupee.
Oh yeah, comb overs are right up there as well.

It's been a few weeks since I contributed to Illustration Friday. That's what going away on vacation will do for you. There is a price to pay for taking time off - major catch up which explains why my image is pretty basic with no background.
