Bad Habit Number 80 (Cigar Anyone?)

A cigar smoker

I have an old friend whom I won't name, called Micah. He likes to smoke cigars. A long time ago he persuaded me to have one. After a couple of minutes with it, I spent the rest of the day green, hiding from sunlight and loud noises. Thanks Micah, for teaching me how to avoid a nasty habit!

Who's House is this Anyway?

Thoughts About Laundry Hanging Outside

A drawing of a house with a red shirt hanging on a clothes line

When I was a small child, we had a clothes line outside. My mom would hang laundry to dry on summer days. I remember the cool, damp feeling I would get when I ran through the hanging laundry. I don't know if I was supposed to do that, but I'm glad for the memory!

I don't see laundry hanging outside around here.

Technical notes: This was a sketch I did a few years back in one of many sketchbooks. I scanned it and converted it to vector lines with Inkscape. I colored it and added text and texture with Affinity Designer. So there AI!

Cud-Chewing Quadruped

I reclaimed an old drawing that I found filed away in a cabinet. I spent some time, all by myself, adding colors and textures, fooling around until I liked it.

Cows spend a lot of time alone thinking. I wonder, do they ever come to any profound conclusions about life, the universe, and everything?
