On Writing

I would like to be a good writer. I am not. I have been studying E. B. White to learn from a master, but he intimidates me. Perhaps I will go draw.

Monsters vs. Demons

While sitting at my son’s baseball game last night, I was thinking about Monsters Inc and had an idea for a sequel (Obviously I’ve had Monsters Inc on my mind a lot lately).  Perhaps Disney will be calling me soon … to tell me to quit messing with their property.  :)

Anyway, the story is about a 15-year-old Boo who is going through a really rough time.  She feels lost and alone, but gets some help from an old friend.  Imagine all the trouble Sully could get into in the human world.

Yeah, I’m sure the catch phrase is too dark for Disney, but I liked the sound of it.  Perhaps I have an over-active imagination.

Artistic Outburst

I have five kids, I'm a school teacher, I serve as a Scoutmaster and a soccer coach . . . I'm grateful for all of those things, but I often don't have as much time to draw as I would like.  Every once in a while, I come home, set aside a few minutes, and draw.  This sketch is the result of one of those artistic outbursts a couple months ago.  While it isn't my greatest drawing, it was definitely enjoyable.
