Mysterious M

Mysterious M

I had time to make a thing this weekend, and this blocky looking “M” thing is part of it.  Alas, it is also going to be a gift so I can’t post much more than that until it is given.

Inktober starts tomorrow!  (I’ll probably only upload them on the weekend)

Quick and Dirty Key Hanger

Key Hanger

Now that we have more than two drivers in the house we have started this weird shuffling of cars that required a central place to leave the keys.  I thought that was the perfect excuse to get out in the garage last week and make a thing!  It’s very quick and dirty, made of spare parts I had lying around.  Maybe I will paint or stain it someday.  An exceedingly short person would also notice that the method I choose to affix it to the refrigerator is not very pretty (an old harddrive magnet).

Inspector Squirrel

Recently I was asked to help recreate an organization’s mascot from a grainy old 40’s-50’s cartoon.  Initially we thought it was a squirrel, but found out after I drew this that it was a different animal entirely.  So I colored this guy up and posted it here.

Leather Sketchbook In Person

Sketchbook Cover

Well before we moved I had received my custom leather sketchbook cover from the amazing Batsugan Leather Co., which I drooled over for probably too long, but then had to safely pack away for shipping.  It is truly an exceptional piece of craftsmanship I am honored to own, and perfectly does everything I wanted and more.  He made me another awesome book, but it’s a gift so I’ll have to wait to show anyone that.

A Crazy Couple of Months

Greetings internet!  It has been quite a busy couple of months for our family, as we uprooted and moved back to the Midwest.  Not quite back to our hometown in Iowa, but a whole lot closer than we have lived in a long time.  With the new house almost completely unpacked (the last things we worried about were my office and the garage), I should start catching up soon and get back to some regular posting of my random stuffins.
