ok...i guess i'll post it.....NEW TOPIC

Hello everyone!

I guess James fell asleep or was too busy being super rad to post up the new it falls upon me to do so.

scary, happy, goofy, dirty, french, mimes WHATEVER! do they scare you? TOO BAD!
because this week we are drawing clowns. that's right...clownS as in plural, more than one. Five to be exact.

The challenge this week is to draw a cohesive group or family of clowns containing 5 members (no more, no less). Like the clown family in Dumbo.

one week turn around...any media...and as always have fun! GO!

new members! Fantastic

Jeez, you think a girl could have a vacation...but just because James got his done nice and early didn't mean that I was going to cut my Toronto visit short to get this in....and it's not like this is even late or anything.

ok...i had a lot of ideas stirring for this project..i mean, who doesn't think about drawing stuff dressed as other stuff? after a cupcake party recently i was trying to explain to some people what people were asked to draw this week and someone misheard me...and well, this was the result.

i certainly hope no one is offended by it....not like i ever plan on censoring my art, but i just wnat everyone to know that is is meant to be humourous....ah it is.

it's a giraffe in a jew suit? get it? jew-raffe

that being over and done with my fearless co-pilot should be posting the new topid shortly! stay tuned kiddies

A (BLANK) in a (BLANK) suit.

Hi, I am presenting this for Leslie since she is away. I started doodling last night and look what happened! A bear in a robot suit!


I am sure we are all looking forward to seeing Leslie's contribution (hopefully it is not a bear in a robot suit)! -James J.


The wonderful Stephanie O'Donnell, Formerly the queen of The Original Nutty Funsters:


and now the purveyor of the Perfect Agent:

perfect agent comic

has contributed the hilarious "Female Cenobite in a politician suit". No one does concept like SOD. The girl is throw-down funny. See more? Yes: SOD Portfolio

female cenobite for president

P.S. - If you don't know what a Cenobite is, google "Clive Barker/Neck Vagina" (or cenobite...I guess).


Good morning, I am pleased to announce the amazing Cormac McEvoy (toy designer extraordinaire) has joined us today with his amazing drawing of a Business man in a Bee Suit!

no apologies for tomorrow

Hello all 5 viewers...why aren't you contributors yet eh?

Seeing as James does not share my luxurious life of unemployment i'll be taking over completely to keep this thing afloat. it may mean the challenges will get really dumb....or real personal to suit my mood, and it may mean that i'll be the only one drawing.....

BUT! this ship ain't sinking on my watch.

quick one week turn around for this one folks, any medium any size

draw BLANK in a BLANK suit (like a fish in a bear suit or whatever)
draw it however you want, make it goofy make it fun and get going because you only have a week!!!

deadline extended, but i'm done...

James had to be an amazing fiance so he's taking out his girl and didn't have time to draw. hehe so the deadline is getting extended another week. that also means James has more time to think of a fun new topic. we'll also be deciding if these will be bi-weekly until we hit our momentum.

For all you Michigan folks i will be at the Cherry Capitol Convention next weekend, so i wanted to get mine done and over with. here ya go:

it was pretty hard to choose...i love so many artists. i decided with stick with an illustrator...and try to not draw someone i know personally. for some reason i couldn't shake Dean Haspiel from my instead of straining to find someone else i just went with it.

i've loved his work for years now and he draws the best should go check some out at ACT-I-VATE

Moving right along...

Ok, so we just got done indulging our vanity with self portraits how about we stroke someone else's ego, eh?

Challenge: for the next challenge draw your favorite contemporary (living) artist. Are they a comic book artist? Illustrator? Fine Artist? Whatever! as long as you like them and they are still alive.

Specs: Add some element of their style...whether or not you do the portrait their way down pat...or if you use the same medium they use or just add background elements. Their style or artistic personality needs to be represented in some way. Just be creative with it and have fun...
no size limitation.

Deadline: Sunday/Monday (this challenge will be a little quicker, but next week the new challenge will be listed the same time as the art from this challenge goes up.)

get those fingers limber and start choosing your fave artistic dude or lady...aaaannnndd DRAW!
