Battleship

Bad Assed Husband and Z were playing Battleship, a two player game. I asked if they minded if I sat next to them and drew a picture. And BAH said,

“I don’t mind, but you have to draw a battleship.”

I’m pretty sure he was joking, but I nevertheless drew a battleship.

My Left Hand

It’s a good drawing exercise to just draw hands. They are notoriously difficult, and kind of fun. I’m not sure that anyone would want to purchase a simple drawing of my hand, but I put it on Art Pal anyway. I think this is a letter in sign language, but I don’t remember which one.

In short, today’s drawing is incredibly exciting in every way. hand job

Alice’s Hair

This one was inspired by my college roommate, Alice, who had (probably still has) the most amazingly beautiful, curly red hair I’ve ever seen on anyone. And it went with her looks, too. She’s quite stunning.

Tom Robbins wrote something about redheads, once:

“The harsh truth is, most red-haired men look like blondes who’ve spoiled from lack of refrigeration. They look like brown-haired men who’ve been composted out behind the barn. Yet that same pigmentation that one a man can resemble leaf mold or junkyard rust, a woman wears like a tiara of rubies.”

So, I drew her in black and white! And she is a very clean person. A spider would never, ever, ever find its way into her hair!
