sketchbook: craig's impulse and mike's thing!

okay...

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY~!
may 2010 be safe and fun and full of wonder!
may you realize your dreams and may the good ones come true!
i wish you happiness, love, and peace.


so, with my sketchbook now in hand, let's start off 2010 with two of my bestest friends, two of my favorite artists, and two of my favorite pieces in the book...


mike did this awesome ben grimm on the inside front cover of the book to welcome all in--and let them all know that the book was protected by some pretty powerful security...





before craig and i were great friends and before we were good friends, before we were even friends and only merely acquaintances--he did for me this awesome impulse with a plea that one day we could work together. maybe someday...



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

here's a joke my friend diane sent me the other day. i'd seen it before, and it's funny, but i also think that its a good example of how we should be grateful for what we have and not get so worked up over the little stuff. so if you're making a new year's resolution, maybe slowing down and recognizing what's really important...?
okay, enough of that blather--here's the joke...

Why Parents Drink

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an
Envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to 'Dad.' 

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter. 

Dear Dad:
It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing
you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. 

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice. 

But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it' s not only the passion...Dad she's pregnant. 

Stacy said that we will be very happy. 

She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. 

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana
doesn't really hurt anyone. 
We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with
the other people that live nearby for cocaine and
ecstasy. 

In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it. 

Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care
of myself. 

Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren. 

Love, Your Son
John 



PS. Dad, none of the above is true.
I'm over at Tommy's house. 

I Just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a Report card That's in my center desk drawer. 

I love you. 

Call me when it's safe to come home...




have a great weekend--
and a great new year--
everybody!
smell ya later!

Happy new year to everybody!!

Warren said...

I always loved Mike's take on Ben Grimm.

And as a father, that joke made me cry. (Just kidding. :) )

Matt Wieringo said...

Love that story! If I had a kid, I'd hope he was that clever. Grades're fer suckers!

~ Wendy ~ said...

Love the story! I've heard it before and still get a chuckle each time I hear it again - especially since I have two boys and know what my heart would have done had I read that first letter ... LOL

Happy New Year everyone!! Looking forward to continuing to see everyone here in 2010.

Love the artwork too!! (almost forgot).

Adam Hutch said...

Great story; to read not to be on the receiving end of.

Todd, those are some great sketches.

Tiffany's jewelry is world famous company and if [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany bracelets[/URL][/B] you cannot afford the actual jewelry there are a lot of Tiffany inspired jewelry to choose from. While Tiffany's [B]tiffany[/B] has produced some more affordable pieces like key chains and money clips [U]pandora jewellery[/U] for those wanting the elegant pieces without the price tag there are other options. Tiffany produces bracelets, rings, earrings [U][B]tiffany[/U][/B] and necklaces.

Besides the traditional Tiffany's style, the jewelry [B]tiffany engagement rings[/B] comes in the traditional blue box and you can even find Tiffany inspired jewelry that [B][URL=http://www.pandoraforyou.com]pandora necklaces[/URL][/B] reproduces the Tiffany style down to the box. Tiffany jewelry is traditionally sterling [U][B]tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] silver as the Tiffany Company has produced a special blend of silver that is very strong [U]pandora bangles[/U] and will last.

It is not a direct replica but it is inspired from the Tiffany style so [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany bracelets[/URL][/B] many of the pieces are very similar to Tiffany. Some companies [U][B]pandora bracelet[/U][/B] may even produce direct replicas. The main difference between real Tiffany's jewelry [U]tiffany bracelets[/U] and the inspired version jewelry is the price tag. They are just as beautiful [U][B]tiffany[/U][/B] and classic as the real ones but at much more affordable prices. If you aspire for [B]tiffany earrings[/B] a piece of Tiffany's then you should investigate Tiffany inspired jewelry.


There are many different types of Tiffany inspired earrings [B]pandora[/B] and many of them match the Tiffany pendants. There are open [B]tiffany co[/B] heart earrings as well as circle of life earrings. There are [U]tiffany[/U] a variety of different bracelets and many [U][B]tiffany engagement rings[/U][/B] still use the open heart charm design. There are multi chain [U][B]tiffany engagement rings[/U][/B] bracelets, heart charm bracelets, puff heart toggle bracelets, link bracelets, cubic [U]tiffany bracelets[/U] zirconium tennis bracelets, mesh buckle bracelets, silver [U]tiffany rings[/U] heart tag ID bracelets, double row cable bracelets and much more.

High hopes this location is really the right place to contribute this... I only wanted to make it easy for folks using the forum who resides in Oz know about a helpful high-end audio visual equipment world-wide-web site identified as Ordio. I uncovered them actually by accident when I was hunting for [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Headphones[/url] and it just so happened that these people had the lowest prices available. Not only that but they are genuinely informative and even followed up on my purchase to ensure I was still satisfied. They buy out massive inventories of high end audio equipment so that they can significantly break the price down. Absolutely give their website a look-see if you're scouring the web for some home electronics.

am i allowed to take a car insurance business to small claims court? The insurer company refused my claim, (I would go ahead and take to blame driver to small claims sadly I've got no address to serve them or send a demand letter). The other driver was at fault however their insurance provider states that there is a difference within our statements so that they need to take the word of their insured vs. my word. It is my opinion they acted in bad belief and did not accomplish a proper investigation would this be described as a valid claim in small claims court? I wish to accept the at fault drivers insurer (not my own) to small claims with the damages to my car.
