'Hamburger Helper' | Daily Drawing #288
Day 5, the final day of the 'Meat Week' series.
So many questions came to mind as I drew this:
- What's with the monkey's outfit?
- Why doesn't the monkey just eat the damned burger?
- And why is there no tomato on that sandwich?
Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason to what winds up on the paper. It is what it is.
This series was fun to do. I really didn't plan these out in advance and I can't spend a great deal of time illustrating them. I'd usually start in the morning playing with words and phrases until something would click. If I was lucky, an idea would stick and I'd at least get the concept and the lettering sketched out before starting my day. Then I'd come back to it at night and do the ink and and color, usually posting at around 10pm. I like working with constraints, like a theme (and time), but I starting sweating it out by Wednesday, because I didn't want to post a dud and I certainly wasn't going to bail out on the theme.
I'm working on some ideas for future series, in the meantime I'll be back to posting my usual random themed daily drawings.

'Long Live Pizza Rat' | Daily Drawing #282
The internet was buzzing this week with a video taken in a NYC subway station of a rat carrying a slice of pizza down the stairs.
Let's all hail his 'can-do' spirit and determination.
If you can make it here, Mr. Rat, you can make it anywhere.

'Screw It, Let's Do It' | Daily Drawing #263
Just say fuck it. Book the trip, make the phone call, ask the girl out.
After a brief hiatus, I'm resuming my Daily Drawing series. The pause was not intentional. Let me explain.
I live in Philadelphia. Philly is an amazing city, and you can’t beat the location: an hour from the mountains or the beach, a few hours from New York or D.C., and anywhere is reachable via a short drive to I-95, the Turnpike, or the airport.
The problem with Philly? The weather sucks. Especially the Winter. This Winter was especially cruel. Thankfully, I work from my home, so I have no commuting issues. But working from home comes with it’s own costs. One of them is isolation. Combine that with a touch of seasonal affective disorder and you’ve got a big cocktail of crazy. So when the weather finally broke in April, I took full advantage of it. The time I would normally spend at my desk early in the morning or during breaks in the work day were spent outside. Biking, walking my grateful dog, gardening, exploring. Anything to get me out of the house. It was just the mental reset I needed.
It feels good to be back.
