Big Al Stomp!

November 25, 2008

My brother-in-law Hal is one of the most gung-ho Alabama football fans I know. The man lives and breathes all things Crimson Tide. Now, I went to Auburn, but let me say right up front I couldn’t possibly care less about college sports. I couldn’t care less if you injected an additional gallon of collegiate sports apathy into my veins.

That being said, the Iron Bowl is coming up this weekend, so that means the entire state of Alabama will shut down on Saturday. Many people will pour out a year’s-worth of passion, hostility and devotion in a 3 hour orgy of screaming, cheering, crying and cussing. Hal will probably be one of the loudest.

So, this doodle is for you, Hal. Hope your team makes you cheer ’til you’re hoarse.

My friend, Allen, has a blog dealing with all things geekish and daddyfied, and I am slooooowly getting the header art done for him. Here is phase 1, with just him and his soon-to-be-born daughter. Later iterations will have more geekiness and gadgetry crowded around them, as well as his lovely bride, Maryalice. Stay tuned…and go check out his site.

Cough-y Cup

coughy-cup

My deepest apologies for this one. I know it’s a very, very bad pun.

But a bad pun floating around in your head is a lot like phlegm; it’s bothersome, distracting, and- in the worst cases- can impede your breathing. The best thing to do is just wretch and hack until you finally get it out of your system.

I feel much better now.

Of Bouncing Santas and Truck-driving Reindeer

So I didn’t do the drunken Santa of a prior post, but I still had fun doing this one. It’s for the Tucker Tree Lighting, an event each year here in my town where Santa shows up in various ways to thrill the kids. This year he’s getting to arrive in a too-cool-for-words 1928 Ford Model A truck owned by a local gentleman with a PHENOMENAL car collection. I didn’t do the old beauty justice with my drawing.

(Sorry for the watermark and all, but- seeing as how this is for a client, and seeing as how some of my doodles have been showing up around the web on some odd, unforeseen places- I figured I had to get all boring and legal on this one.)
