#71 - StinkMachine

This stink machine is the product of recycling a page I began a robot on that I didn't like and left it sitting for months. That is, until today, when my lack of ideas led me down the dangerous path where the idea is uncovered at the very end. Maybe all the lovely smells around the tracks today inspired the outcome?

#70 - BarnacleBilly up to bat

Ok, I admit it, it was not my intention to make this guy both a baseball player and a pirate. Part way through the "peg-flipper" and other accessories I realized how baseball looking this was, and since this particular kind of mammal couldn't hold a baseball bat this particular handicap is perfect!

#69 - Mogli in the sky

Good evening internets, sorry I betrayed you and didn't make a post yesterday, I was busy racing downtown after work on those blasted trains struggling to fit in the car and wondering how I will work on my daily character. In any case, I am back today with the finished post of Monday. A sketch of the most peaceful boy in the universe who watches over animals of the world.

#68 - Carnival funfair

Well, it is very hot in our apartment, and I lack anything witty to say about this one (brain is boiling) hopefully someone will enjoy looking at it.

#67 - The WindyCity gang

Spent some time talking on the bus and took a train to meet some great people for dinner so my free time comes Saturday afternoon and I can post the end of the week character(s).
Iv'e always been a fan of everything nintendo and how every single hill, tree building all seems to have a face and a personality. I like to think of Chicago that way too. While I am still relatively new to the city and I mostly only paid attention to getting the hancock tower in there, It's fun to think of what each buildings personality would be.... strange thought? yes/no?

#66 The Butt of Destiny

I am not a smoker, and yes, the world's oldest man did not quit smoking until he was 90, but I still say it's in the smoke.

#65 - Twisted Trevor

Today's post is reminiscent of many current trends in style out there right now, but that is what influences me so I ran with it and made it my own. (much better bus ride today)

#64 - Quacker McBrimstone

In case anyone noticed, I slept through my previous "ink on the bus" so today I decided to pick up where I left off on the start of a sketch I was going to do for Teefury as their "Devil bird" I will admit I did touch up the face a lot in photoshop. I worked on the face the most on the way home and luck would have it I had the worst driver and worse bus, suffice to say the ducks face looked more like an inkblot than a duck.

#63 The FuryBird

Thursday's character sketch idea for the Teefury Collab mentioned in the previous entry. Enjoy:-)

Throwing my hat into the Fury (Teefury)

For my missing Friday post I was instead working on my submission to the
"Furyous Omnibus 2 Thousand Nine" at Teefury. A monstrous teeshirt collab with artists that frequent the site.
Read about it here
I don't know how small it will appear of if it will even make it on the shirt but I decided to have some fun with it anyway.
My next post will be the daily sketch that spawned this 1 color bird.

#62 - Teachers pet

Today's post I will admit had a few tiny alterations in photoshop after the sketching, however it is 95 percent marker (pens). What kind of pens you ask? well Staedler Triplus Fineliner pens. I mention this because I am so sold on this brand of pens and so pleased with how they never seem to dry out and always make a smooth line that I want to advertise for them! Even beyond monetary gains (though that is nice) If you are looking for some smooth pens that work really well, even on a crazy bouncing old POS bus, these are it!

#61 - MouthMagee

What happens when panic and lack of ideas set in....? a lot of lines and a giant mouth. This creature is a product of doodling without an idea. What I don't like the most is the odd position of the hands...what exactly is it doing?

A friend just wrote me something funny about this character...
"it's like a cross between a sea anemone, Blanka, the Fry Kids, and Robin Williams"

#60 - DeityJoe

High in the clouds rests the creator of all the robots...cousin Joe.

#56 - OrderUp Octo

What a nice long weekend. I was out of town and now I find myself back at home and back to work. I guess that would explain going to my "safezone" for ideas and simply creating another Octopus character.

#55 - skeet

a new character for Wednesday, had a mind block today so it's a miracle there is any post.
