swinging in the rain

for drawergeeks‘ tarzan week:


up until today, it’s been raining and pouring and old men snoring here in “sunny” tampa, fl. you’d think it would make me want to go back on vacation, but i actually find rain to be pretty relaxing. except when i’m driving in it and there are calls about tornado warnings.

amidst all the stormy weather, my sister had her third child two days ago and surprised us all with a boy. i finally have a nephew! yeah! as is with tradition, i did a quick sketch of the little newborn:


the kid is a dead ringer for bruce lee. even loved posing for my sketchbook.

and to make this a triple post (because lord knows when i’ll have a chance to post again) i’ll once again be attending the orlando megacon this weekend, march 7-9th.


i’ll be in the white section, table 7 with books, buttons, stickers, window clings, postcards, prints and who knows what else. if you have trouble finding me, just walk around artist alley until you see the life sized stand-ups of cow and buffalo and a haggard little artist tirelessly sketching in-between them. hope to see some of you there!

    Wow. You know you’re in Florida when they segregate the convention floor. Do they have a Klingon section too?

    Congrats, Mike! That sketch is beautiful, what a great thing for them to have of each child :)
    Be glad you’re not up here… we’ve had multiple ice storms, the latest one was Tuesday, now we’re going to get 1-2 feet of snow by Sunday. WORST. WINTER. EVER!!!!!
