Gettin' Sketchy

A collection of thoughts, dreams, and dinosaurs in amateur drawrings.

Hobbies.

I know I’m behind on posting sketches and junk, but instead, I’ll share this.

Today I googled “hobbies” for some ideas for a script.  This is a list I found.  In particular, #181 nearly made me pee my pants because I pictured babies playing guitars.

Without being too whiny, a bit of explanation:
At my old job, where I had been a few years and had been promoted a few times, I was blind-sided with this conversation:
-
Producer:  Mike, you’re doing a great job, but [your boss] needs a change and we have to let you go.
Me: Uh, wha?
Producer:  You have always worked hard and everyone here likes you, but [your boss] is unhappy, so we have to shake things up.  It has nothing to do with you.
Me: I mean, I’ve worked hard to get to this position.  It kind of has a lot to do with me.
Producer: No!  No, not at all… but we still have to let you go.
-
Naturally, my brain defaults to its “confusion” setting whenever interacting with old coworkers, awkward pity abound.

Me: Hey [coworker who has been trying online dating], I saw a commercial for blackpeoplemeet.com last night. You heard of it?
Coworker: Ha, yeah, a friend of mine had me check it out, but I never signed up.
Me: Hm. At first I thought it was an ad for a porn site. Is that weird?
Follow-up note: Upon further investigation, we've learned that blackpeopleMEAT.com redirects you to blackpeopleMEET.com
The O-Zone was so thick back then, you couldn’t see a meteor coming.
(I tried to think of an “Impact on the Earth” pun, but to no avail.)

A quick sketch from a foggy beach trip this weekend.
-
This gentleman, sketched without the white t-shirt he wore into the ocean, seemed to be just another brave soul willing to swim in the freezing Pacific.  But, looks can deceive and instead he got everyone’s attention by stepping into knee-deep water, turning his back, then screaming bloody-murder whenever a wave crashed into him.
-
The first time:  ”Silly pudge, the ocean is damn cold today.”
The second time:  ”Someone didn’t learn their lesson.”
The tenth time:  ”I am going to &#$%ing kill that guy”

This is a cartoon I drew last night of the two editors in my office.  These two BFFs were witnessed yesterday waiting by the microwave for the Hot Pocket they were going to share.

This now hangs on the freezer door of our office refrigerator.
