Mermaid Doing Nothing

I dug up some old mermaids studies from the past. Nothing great. Someday I would like to do a real mermaid painting. I thought this topic might get me motivated but it isn't looking very good. Oh well, someday.

Hmmm, maybe the girl on the bench is underwater... or maybe she is a mermaid of the legged variety...or maybe she was just on the same piece of paper and I'm too lazy to crop.

New Topic Time

Thanks for everyone posting! You still have the rest of the day to get your drawing in... I know I'm going to take advantage of that this time.

This week's new topic is Mermaids. We'll see how it goes with the Holiday weekend, and everyone drive/travel safely if you're off to see family somewhere!

Curse of the Tiki

A tiki's inability to move its arms for swatting or wiping combined with the company it shares with tropical birds equals "the curse of the tiki." (That's not sun screen).

Tiki God

This guy wakes up on the wrong side of the bed...everyday. He likes stepping on people, except they're slippery - like banana peels.

Tiki drink

So, this guy enjoys a refreshing beverage before rituals and stuff. As Homer Simpson says "Alchohol: the cause of, and solution to, all of lifes problems!"


This nontraditional "Sketch" was made with Legos. I dug them out of cold storage today after considering how best to make a Tiki. Legos! Of course. And it gave me an excuse to play with Legos again. It's been a while.

Professor Hubert Whitehead

Is this too obscure? It's probably something that would get spoofed on The Family Guy. But it's the first thing I thought of, after the Enchanted Tiki Room of course.

New Topic and Baby Seal Update

Well, a mere 14 minutes before I took the baby seal behind the woodshed to fulfill my promise, Ken Chandler posted the eighth post of the week. Thanks, Ken. I don't think I could have lived with myself...

Okay, buds, this week's topic is "Tiki".

Don't make me have to threaten baby animals again.

Wake Up, Kill food, Find wife.

Gronk Has Second Thoughts

Gronk, tired of nearly being eaten by the large predators he's been hunting, decides to go for some of the smaller less intimidating animal life, and discovers irony.

Apologies. I meant to get this colored, but have run out of time. Hope the sketch will save the baby seal.

Caveman's First Flight

11:00 AM

...And so, the concept of roller skates took a back seat for a few million years.

I'd like to thank my daughter Kenzie for the background of this picture. What a lovely volcano! She says it errupts at 11:00, so I guess we know what time it was here.

Viva la Toon Club!

Makin' Fire

I combine the Illustration Friday topic and the caveman topic and got this. Not very finished. Work is keeping me busy.

Maximizing the Caveman's Day

What Day? Friday!

I was thinking of what day in the life of a caveman would be most interesting... Then I realized it would be Friday. That's my theory, anyway. *pushes glasses up*

Fruity Pebbles!

They get paid?!!!

Okay, here's the deal, kids. We're gonna post on this topic if it kills us. You have until Monday of next week, and then we're moving on. Let's consider this the Save Toon Club marathon.

If we don't have eight posts by the end of the week, I'm going to kill a baby seal. Don't believe me? Well, post a drawing and find out!

Thank you so much for all the work you did in October, and I continue to appreciate your support, but I think we're at a crucial cross roads for Toon Club... Let's keep it alive!

There are some incredibly cool new features coming to Toon Club if we make it to December, including the ability to browse by topic. And we're gonna have a contest after Thanksgiving, too! So keep those drawings coming and let's start bullying each other for not posting.

Take care, my friends.

New Topic Time

Hey, everyone! Looks like Toon Club's been struggling a bit... I know I've been bad, but at least I was out of the country on business, so ha ha on you!

The next topic is "A Day in the Life of a Caveman".

And I have every intention of catching up on the ones I missed! It's time for the baboon to cowboy up!
