Thanksgiving Comes Before Christmas

As hearts still pound
From Trick-or-Treat
We hear a sound
Both glad and sweet

The carols swell;
Joy's everwhere
As vendors sell
Their Christmas fare

We all prepare
To give and get
And do not care
It's not time yet

Although December's
Still a month away
No one remembers
Thanksgiving Day

Give thanks when you
Still have got naught
As well as when you
Receive a lot;

Give thanks before
Blessing's received
And be no more
By greed deceived

For when you do
The Lord will give
His Joy to you
Each day you live.

Benny the Ogre

a lot of my coolest looking drawings start with a doodle. it is hard for me to believe that my friend benny here started out as just the curly-que that now forms the general shape of his face.

When it Reins it Pours...

"well, dadgum! looks like another dadblasted bridle shower!"

I didn't really take the time to do a nice polished drawing of this- i just kind of made a quick sketch much as one jots down a note or an idea. Then i slapped on some color to get an idea what it could look like...

Well, Owl Be!!

every once in a while, a doodle develops into an interesting character. this barefooted owl was once a little doodle.
