Leaf Chores

This is what comes of asking my kids, Rowin and Atticus, to help pick up leaves.  My wife and I improvised with the headstones.

Plato, The Reluctant Soul

Came up with a few sketches of the Greek Philosopher, PLATO.  The early sketches led to more drawings, and I became so involved that he began to have his own personality take shape.  It's really awesome when this happens.  It reminds me of how so many characters we've come to know have influenced us: CALVIN AND HOBBES, PEANUTS, GARFIELD, FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE, and so many others.  Most times my drawings don't take on any expression or personality but this guy did for some reason and I just went with it.
