  4. Hehehee... I think I mostly love the 'eagerly happy but doubtful' look in his eyes! Your characters always give smiley faces in my head...

  6. Hi Jack,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and your wonderful comments. I grew up in Chicago but I live in the Joliet are now. Have been out this way for the past 13 years. Prefer it to the fast paced city life. lol

    You are a very talented illustrator. I've taken some graphic design classes and love playing in Illustrator and Photoshop but graphite seems to be the medium I love most.

    It's very nice to meet you and I am now a follower of your blog!

  12. He eats what he preaches so to speak? Nice illustration! He's got that glazed, Mmmmmm...preserves, look about him. Breakfast certainly has that hypnotic effect on me.

  13. Ahahaa...Jack, you are such a laugh! I suppose making my own puppet would be out of the question now since it would cost too much and I'm already broke?? Hhm, maybe I would have to sell my work after all...heheh.

    And you should try one of those beer hats with the long straw!! it might just work for drinking upside down! :D :D

    You know, you are funny just as you are kind. So thank you, my friend. I'm now happier to know that my name is written across a board somewhere along the street of NYC! Hahahaa!!

  16. Heh Jack, is this where the party is. I guess you are not talking to me since I did Jack be Nimble.... :)


    Now this guy looks very keen to hoe into his breakfast, the tongue hanging out just adds the right touch, the eyebrows - now they are 'concentrating' eyebrows.

    You are doing 2d animation?
    That's wonderful!
    What program are you using, or are you doing it by hand//?
