Well apologies first, I had a very bad cold and cough the last 4 weeks really slowing me down so I kinda rushed this one to make it into a group show based on the four basic elements. This is not my best work but not my worst either, The Koko the clown character has always been a favorite of mine and I thought if I ever painted him it would have to be at least as weird as the old cartoons, so there ya go. I hope I can revisit this later and paint it up right.
Here is the initial sketch:
Time for another Doodle Dump
By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth!
Oh, excuse me
I assure you I haven’t smashed anything
He’s all geared up
No its not the name of Aunt May’s great grand-daughter, its Star Wars day (que the John Williams fanfare). I have been neglecting my humble sketchblog lately due to a lot of much needed freelance work but I wanted to do some kinda Star Wars doodle for today so here you have it. Its our favorite Who shot first gag, Greedo from the original Star Wars.
Next time more shootin’ and less talkin’
2013 is on its last few hours so it seems like a good time to give these lost scribbles a more permanent home.
This year has been a roller coaster for me so I have high hopes for the next 365 days to come. Thank you for taking a look at my art and I hope you and your families all have a great 2014.

A long lost post card doodle, created with office supplies and coffee stains.
Here are the last few faces I sketched up in 2013. I had a lot of fun drawing my friends and family the last few months but I think its time to take a break for a spell.
My youngest daughter Emily.
Meghan’s hard-rockin’ roller mama Andrea Lowe-Hayes.
My middle sister Kym.
My nephew Nick newly certified fire-fighter.
SkaDaMo day 20
Decided to stone two kills with one scribble. Doodle day challenge for today is “beetle” so here is my distortion of a perfectly good topic.
With apologies to Rick Griffin & John Lennon.
SkaDaMo day 19
If you get lost on your way back to Alpha Centauri you can always pull over and ask for directions and fill up your tank. I think these erm, boys just like the cozy atmosphere of greasy spoons and truck stops, oh and thier space craft happens to run on gravy.
Brother can you spare some gravy?
SkaDaMo Day 12
Sorry folks, I’m really blowing it on the Skadamo front. My life is just a little too crazy right now between freelance, volunteer work, assembling my website and finding a place to live I really have to fight for any recreational drawing time. I did manage to steal some time today while indulging in my morning coffee and started scribbling and yet another self portrait popped out while I was having my own little private pity party. So here is a little doodle to take in along with my whine.
Looking more like Billy Connolly every day
SkaDaMo Day 7
I know, three days in and I have already resorted to a bad pun. It’s been a long day, I hope to do better tomorrow. I won’t blame you if you punt this post.
