Am I being lazy? Am I just afraid to finish the book for some reason? I don't know, but for whatever reason I'm really putting off the last page to my journal. I've got to have this done by Friday though. Time to move on to the next project. I've got some fun ideas.

Slowly but surly...

An old post finally water colored.

On the road to finishing...

It's getting finished, but in a slightly out of order manner. Brace yourselves.

Four Years Strong...

Still have writing to do... and a load of water coloring. One more page to go and I'll get caught up on all that water coloring.

Nap time...

Oh boy, I'm way behind in water coloring. There are only two pages left in my sketchbook though, so even if I get behind. I can eventually see the end and get caught up.

Another sketchbook down...

Still behind on water coloring, but the illustration and writing part I'm caught up on.

I managed to finish another sketchbook! That's two since I started doing the blog nine months ago. I never got through that many that quickly whenI was drawing in college. I've improved so much more too. Not just copying other peoples' work. I'm creating my own now!

Here are a couple of my favorite pages from the sketchbook. Thanks for sticking along for the ride.

Do you like my flowers? Hope not. They're suppose to be ugly. I've had to look at those flowers for three years as I brush my teeth. No more. (This rambling will make sense soon.)

What's Journalitis you might ask? It's like Senioritis, but with a journal. I'm so close to being finished and my attention and gusto is starting to wane. Stick in there Ben. You're almost there.

UFC 103...

Spent too much time destroying my bathroom today so it's just a sketch. I'll pull double duty tomorrow and get caught up.

Rich Franklin lost. What a bummer.

Nine more entries to go...

I'm enjoying these journal entries, but I'm going to throw a party once this book is done.

I didn't give myself much time to draw today so I'm afraid it's just a quick sketch. I'll have more time tomorrow and will have to play some catch up. Goodnight.

Circus Barker...

After I had written the speak bubble I reread it. I had not written the other text yet. I realized that to someone just joining the site that it might sound like I was going up to the bathroom to take a giant poop and destroy the bathroom that way. No. This is not the case. I am remodeling.

Bum knee...

Not sure if you can see the splatters, but they were fun.

Gorilla me...

Christine: You should have drawn the kids as kittens.
Me: But kittens aren't kittenly. Squirrels are squirrelly.
Christine: Groan.

I knew it would happen eventually, but I was really hoping I would escape it. I was trying to watch "Dog the Bounty Hunter" and write in pen a the same time. Didn't work. Messed up and completely wrote the wrong thing. I'll have to try and fix it tomorrow.

Didn't mess this one up. Will water color tomorrow.

It's fun drawing myself as some huge hulking gorilla when in actuality I'm one of the frailest, skinniest runners around.

A little behind...

I'm a day behind right now. I'll try to get caught up tomorrow.


Saturday, September 5, 2009


Whew! (Wiping sweat from my brow.) All caught up. The weekend is a great thing.

Dragonflies and treehouses...

The beginning of Thursday's journal entry.

The beginning of today's (Friday) journal entry.

Yesh. I've got some major water coloring to catch up on tomorrow. I'm excited to do it though. It's going to add a lot to these hopefully.


Uh oh. Two journal pages behind now. I've got some catching up to do this weekend.

First Day of School...

Yikes. Hands. Need to practice those a little more.

All caught up... again...

Eight months on daily posts, come and gone. Wild.
