I love California. It’s gorgeous. But Kansas has some of the best clouds I’ve ever seen. (And if you follow me on Instagram, you know I couldn’t stop with the cloud photos over the weekend.)

Mary Poppins!

The reason why I spent many hours as a kid trying to jump into my own sidewalk drawings.

A smiling little mermaid from my sketchbook.

I know I’ve posted something here every day for nearly two years. For the next few days, including today, I’m queuing a few things from my sketchbook up since I’m traveling to the midwest. I’m going to be seeing places and family I haven’t seen in years. Unfortunately it’s because we’re all attending my grandfather’s funeral.

I haven’t even really told that many people about it, mostly because they usually ask “are you okay?” and I don’t know about you, but even when I am okay, that simple question makes me cry. And then it turns into an awkward situation. But I am okay. Really. This is just one of those “man, it kind of sucks when you get older” things.

Enjoy the sketches for the next few days. Who knows? Maybe when I come back, I’ll be inspired and draw lots of cows and grassy open spaces.

Drew this while watching the latest America’s Next Top Model. (Sometimes you just have to watch a show where Tyra Banks gives someone a beard weave.) During the challenge, the models had to wear terrible looking wigs (the guys did, at least) and flip their hair around and look fierce. Quality stuff.

Seriously, a beard weave.

Hello, fall.
(This was going to be a more involved drawing, but I got kind of sidetracked following the Giants-Dodgers game. September baseball!)
