Here is a graphic I designed for M&Ms. I wanted to create an image that had a 1940's vintage propaganda poster feel. According to this image, that chocolate won't melt in your hands....even when it's so hot that those hands need to be protected by welding gloves!!

|"Yeah, so what's it to ya?"|
My brother has just adopted a small kitten that he helped rescue from a storm drain. While walking home the other night, he heard its mews calling out from the dark. When he peaked underneath the metal grate, he saw a 12 week old kitten desperately crying for help. Moving heaven and earth...and making a call to the local fire department, he freed the little guy. When asked by the fireman if he knew of anyone that might be willing to look after the lucky tabby, my brother claimed kinship immediately and declared that he would take charge of his new found ward.
So now, he finds himself bottle-feeding a very grateful little ball of fur named Splinter. Oh, I also wanted to sketch Hellboy.

My brother in-law wants to get a motorcycle. He is by all accounts a giant of a man at 6'6" and 350+ lbs. He is a terribly sweet guy. The thought of him riding a motorcycle brings to mind images of Harry Potter's Hagrid tearing along the streets of Little Whinging. My sister asked for a picture of him riding his dream bike. Of course I couldn't resist.
Inspired by Marc Davis, here he is, just bearly rid'n.

When I think back to when I was a kid, I remember that the days of summer seemed to go on forever. In those days, there were endless adventures lurking around every corner. Eventually, the joys of the endless summer would gave way when every imaginable adventure had been had and the days would grow long with idle boredom.
Soon school would begin and bring its own adventure. To me the beginning of the school year always meant that the countdown to the next summer had already begun!

Solution: tape an additional page to the corner to add real estate to the canvas. Not as quick and easy as it is in Photoshop, but equally as effective and every bit as satisfying. Plus, I had cause to use my 6 year old roll artists' tape.
Have a great weekend!

Care to guess what the rest of the scene looks like?
