Some Thanksgiving Thankful-ness.

Well here's hoping a note in a batch of pixels that constitute this blog can express a little gratitude here on Thanksgiving:  I'm thankful for my wife and daughters: I enjoy them every minute of the day.  Somewhere among those minutes of every day I thank my lucky stars for the ability to draw for a living ( even an occasional hand turkey ) and to do so for genuinely good, interesting and enjoyable people:  I'm most grateful for their trust in me.  And I thank any and all who take a look at this blog and find something interesting or amusing. 
If not now then soon.

Election Day

Carried my under-used sketchbook for something to do in anticipation of a long line to vote.  Turned out there was no waiting, so I took advantage of the warm, sunny day to sit outside and scrawl out a quick sketch as I enjoyed a free Starbucks coffee ( I sprung for a scone ) and watch a small plane circle in the clear blue sky.  A serene scene for what I hope is a day of minimum voting hi-jinks and maximum results!

Election Eve. No more recounts!

Remember the days of hanging chads and machine malfunctions? Hopefully all a distant memory tomorrow as a strong turnout and lessons learned puts this years election in the bag early! This illustration appeared in the Chicago Reader
