Sketches from many moons ago

Looking at old pages of my sketchbook today and I came across these.  Two of the three are still "hot button" issues today- Border Security & The Bear Market.  The Email vs. Snail Mail is an old idea but I don't get to draw snails that often so I couldn't resist.  I also did a drawing about car alarms but lately I'm working on a line of tee shirts for my threadless account. - that is.  Very cool site.  If you're an artist, it's a must register site IMHO.  I'll be posting pictures of those designs as well, just need more time to get them all together.

Mike'd Up

As I've written before in this blog, I'm a big sports fan.  For years I've listened to sports radio 660 WFAN in New York.  Even though he comes across as a pompous, know-it-all jerk, my favorite talk show host is Mike Francesa.  He's New York's #1 and he'll be the first to tell you that. He hangs up on stupid callers and bludgeons the Mets and Jets which really cracks me up.  He has a long litany of regular callers: Ira from Staten Island, Mike from Montclair, Al from White Plains, Joe D and others but my favorite is Yankee die-hard, Lisa from Whitestone.  She comes across as someone who watches every Yankee game while pacing, smoking Pall Malls & drinking scotch.  But hey, that's just me.
