A christmas outing

My brother had an outing with his family on snowmobiles. I expanded on his story a bit.
the original sketch from my notes...

Little Monsters

Here are a few little monsters for fun.  They even found there way into the blog header and profile page. I did a dragon drawing session at Ethan's first grade and we had a lot of fun.

A Class room converted to campsite

Our first graders might be going to reading camp at the end of the year.  Their teacher is looking at converting the room to a fun little camp out complete with tents and fun camping crafts and reading lessons. We may be helping with the set up and a few illustrations!


Ethan has a hard time getting up in the morning so I asked him what he would invent to help him be on time. His answer ...three hovering robots to pull the covers down and one Mickey Mouse hand coming from the dresser to tap him awake.  Complete with cameras on the dresser side.  We are working on the patents.

Pawn's life

The kids wanted to learn a little chess.  So I tried to teach a few of the moves the pieces made. A little early for any serious games but they really had fun playing with the pieces.  This sketch shows a King send forward his pawn while the queen looks worried and the captured pieces are standing on the sidelines.
