Indiana Jones

"Shee junior, itsh ush in the drawingsh!"  
Who doesn't love a good adventure?!  The Indiana Jones movies are clearly that!  So, therefore, I chose Sir Sean Connery and Harrison Ford for my 20th &21st drawings. Their on screen chemistry, playing father and son (Even though in real life they're close in age), was hilarious.  I chose to use a marker for the shading in this sketch.  It has a nice look I think. So do you have a favourite sketch yet?

My brother and I, would save each other daily from disasters and fires with only the aid of our trusty vacuum hose and tin box full of high tech medical screw driver and tupperware.
Okay, I'll admit, perhaps we watched the TV show Emergency a little to much!
Good memories though!   Kevin Tighe played Roy DeSoto and Randolph Mantooth played John Gage  on the show that aired in the 70's on TV.  I used a pen to draw them and a pencil crayon for the brick.
What show did you like as a child?

Batman and Robin

That's right chum!  I chose Adam West and Burt Ward for my next two page drawing spread.
Did you ever watch the show?  It was quirky and campy!  But, that was no mistake! It was meant to be!  I incorporated a little bit of marker into this drawing.  For those who have been keeping up...which sketch in my book do you like the best so far?  Not sure, well don't worry because there is still more to come...same bat time same bat channel!  Sorry, couldn't resist!

"Look!  Up in the air!  It's a bird! It's a plane!"....It's Lois and Clark!  For the 14th & 15th drawings,  I selected two actors from the infant stages of television. George Reeves and Noel Neill worked wonderfully well together and really made the young viewers of the day, believe that a man could fly!
Much to the chagrin of some parents, I'm sure!  I know I enjoyed watching the show on DVD, but don't worry honey, I won't be jumping off our garage in any attempts to fly!  But, wait,...where are the kids?!  Well I hope you enjoy this sketch...I'm off to go look for my kids.

Gilligan's Island

"Now this is a tale of our castaways..."  Come along now,  everybody sing!  Come on, I know you know the words?!  Yes that's right, I couldn't help but hum the theme song to Gilligan's Island while I worked on this one.  Sorry, if I've got the song stuck in your head now?!
This is the 12th and 13th drawings in my sketchbook for those of you keeping track.
If you're looking for a hobby that will help you develop your drawing abilities, then I strongly recommend you check out the "Sketchbook Project".  I can definitely see how it's aided me in my art.  So check it out..."Okay, lil' buddy?!"

Continuing on in my sketchbook, I chose two characters from another movie I enjoyed.
The rocketeer was a fun adventure movie that was set in the 30's.  It's been enjoyable using solely the pen for this drawing.  I think the sketchbook project has increased my freeness in the execution of my art.  Now I see why my wife has been after me for so long, to start a sketchbook. I'm just sorry I didn't follow her advice sooner!
Well, I hope you like this sketch?!
