CAPTION CONTEST WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: This contest was interesting. It was closer to the kind of work I actually do everyday than just the typical write-what-the-character-is-saying kind of thing. I think we found out who the hardcore captionists were this week. I’m gonna be brief here and just announce the winner. I’ll go back and “like” and comment on some others in the original post. We’ll see how that works. Okay, the winner is… Alex Caldwell with: Book title: "War and Peace" Caption: (Ventriloquist to dummy) "Are you almost done? I have a cramp in my hand." I like the idea that a "Dummy" would have to mouth the words in order to read. A lot of people had good funny book titles, but I didn't think they addressed the dummy situation in the drawing as well as this one did. As always, the winner will get the original drawing in the mail with his jokes drawn/written in. I’ll post my original gag tomorrow. Thanks for playing.
My sketch and final drawing for the Punch Brothers new album "Ahoy!" See the entire final cover here: http://bit.ly/VhpBEL
I scared myself drawing this...
Working on a tee shirt design for the Punch Brothers. First time drawing tentacles...
A left handed drawing. (I'm right handed) Kind of looks like John Turturro as an old man zombie.
Drawing a "little bear" today for a New Yorker cartoon. Thinking of Maurice Sendak...
Here's another drawing I did for the series "If Cowboys Were Smaller" for
The Believer Magazine, but this one wasn't used. You have to look closely to see the little saddle.
This is one in a series of drawings I did for this month's Believer Magazine by McSweeney's. The series is titled, "If Cowboys Were Smaller." I think tiny cowboys would do pretty well riding armadillos as long as they didn't try to cross the road on one.
There's a mango in my fruit bowl getting old...
