Ah, love radios! I had one of the early transistor pocket radios as I walked along on my paper route. Also I built a no-battery mini transistor unit, a crystal set in Boy Scouts and received a shortwave receiver from a ham radio neighbor. And I am still a ham radio operator, contacting all ’round the world! Now that’s a blast!
And thanks to Sue and Charlie both, for showcasing the work here. Sue, your sense of subtle humor really shines – the illustrations have a sense of whimsey producing chuckles all the way along. I went over to your website to look at your other work and I’m still smiling. The cat sitting on the back of the sofa watching salmon swim by in the…[Read more]
Super sketch, bringing back wonderful memories listening to classical music and jazz with my parents and starting a lifelong love of all kinds of music. I kept my 1970’s big stereo receiver/amp with the turntable, cassette player/recorder, cd player and iPod input! But I still love the records I have held on to and play them now and then. The…[Read more]
Hey Charlie, another beautiful turtle – you do them so well. And the background really makes the whole scene sparkle, like the light glancing down from the surface. Q scene of quiet and peace, letting the world flow by! Love it!
Congrat’s, a wonderful accomplishment, 5 years! You have poured your soul into the doodles and the essays each day and it stays fresh and applicable to daily life. It’s a refreshing view of life that you give us each day and we so enjoy it. Thanks.
Great sketch of the two friends, off on an adventure. We humans might learn something from these two species, (although I wouldn’t recommend carrying around your friend on your head!) Cooperation often yields special results, so we can learn to work with those who are different from us.
Wonderful sketchbooks which serve as photo albums of your trips. But they are more than just a record of what you saw, they also hold your emotional response to what you saw. That’s the best part of a traveling sketchbook, you’ll rekindle how you felt about each scene! I love it!
Looks delicious, Charlie. When I tipped the laptop screen I thought the hot dog would roll away! I prefer red dogs, Tri-Sum chips and a Moxie! My kids enjoyed the Schoolhouse Rock shows too, and actually learned stuff. My daughter still likes to point out grammar errors to her kids, right from S/Rock! Misplaced antecedents and hanging participles,…[Read more]
A fast looking pup indeed! When we lived near Ft Myers FL we would see a lot of the greyhound rescue groups at Petco and they make super pets. The really strange thing about them is that they like to lean against you – it’s odd seeing a group of people with dogs leaning against their legs, as if the dogs had adopted us! If we hadn’t already…[Read more]
OK, yummy trees! Broccoli is delicious especially with the melted cheese. And I like how you used little dots of pure colors in the broc head, a pointillist/impressionist technique that works so well in watercolor! It makes the little florets sparkle in the light! And what a fortuitous error, buying too many peaches…. Nice touch!
Love the nook concept and that chair looks well lived in, it’s traveled by imagination all over the universe! And I see the lava lamp, a blast from the past. Enjoy your next book and may it take you to a new place never before imagined!
Bon Anniversaire, Charlie! And may God grant you many more years! That’s a tasty looking cupcake, sprinkles and all. The metal cupcake cup looks familiar, as you showed us your technique in the Karen Abend sketching video – many thanks for that! My favorite “gateau de fête” is yellow cake with real butter cream chocolate frosting, right from the…[Read more]
Thanks for the excellent macaws. I was stopped cold by your note on the relative lifespans of our animal friends. Someone who takes on a parrot as a pet is looking at a lifelong partnership– all Your life long! Dogs unfortunately have much shorter lives and i once hard a child explain why: he said that dogs have happy lives because all the bad…[Read more]
That is one tall baby, and handsome too! And thanks for pointing out the importance of daydreaming to one’s success in life. The best thoughts often come when you’re just sitting there and “gathering wool!”
Love the aerial view of the snowman and the artist’s ability to pul many images into one painting that really clicks. And the process of preserving puzzles as works of art hits home. My wife’s late uncle was a puzzle fanatic and he would use Modpodge to coat and and glue them together. Later in life he shared many of these with relatives and we…[Read more]
