"Sticks, Stones and Bones" (detail)

Graphite 12" x 16"

I drew this one in 1990. I'm not sure what it means; it sort of "evolved" as I spent months doodling on it at night while we watched TV.

"Crabcake"

Graphite 4.5 x 6.5

Here's that little crab again from last summer. I painted him in oil back several months ago, and decided to do him once more in pencil.

"Scarecrow"

Graphite 12.5 x 8.5

I know it's kinda cheesy to draw movie stars and celebrities, but I love "The Wizard of Oz" and especially the Scarecrow. And the textures on his face are fabulous and were great fun to draw. This one was also done about 20 years ago.
