She likes to pet her kitty on the couch.
She's good at making it purr.

Mask #1

This was the first of what's turning out
to be a nice little mask series. I'll
definitely be doing more of these.

The McSmileys!

I based this on one of those wonderful "laughing models"
covers that were popular in the 50's/60's. I decided
to make them a family vocal group instead of just a group
of generic, music lovin' folks.

If this album existed, I would buy it without hesitation! :)

The Judgmental Sketcher

This is one of the strangest of the CHC's, the
Judgmental Sketcher. This goofball brings his
sketchbook to coffee shops with the idea that
he will draw fantastic images that will alter the
face of the art world. Instead, he spends most of
his time perched on the moral high ground
passing judgment on others. He then uploads
these sketches to his "SketchBlog" and claims
to be conducting some sort of satirical
anthropological study. Is he a loon? Is he a
twisted genius? Or, is he just a very silly fellow
who likes to draw goofy pictures of coffee house
weirdos? Probably a little of each (with a slight
emphasis on the genius part).

Stage Kitten

A cartoony sketch of Erin, Stage Kitten
for last Saturday's Shimmy Shack Burlesque
show at the Sazerac Lounge. When I saw
her in this outfit, I couldn't resist putting
pencil to paper. Zowie!

The Inside Hat Guy

This brand of CHC insists on wearing
his hat inside at all times. Why? My first thought
was that he may fear "hat hair". One look around
at what passes for male grooming these days quickly
dispelled that theory, however. Perhaps he thinks it
makes him look coolly casual or offbeat. Who knows?
Whatever the reason, it's unlikely he will cease this
practice despite the breach of basic etiquette and
the general goofballishness it entails.

Note: Some species of the Inside Hat Guy
pair the hat with a scarf which is also kept on inside.
This takes the cheese to a whole new level.

Note Note: This does not apply to women. They look adorable
in hats and scarves and should be encouraged to
continue wearing them indoors.

Note Note Note: There isn't one. I just wanted
to see if I could land the triple.

The 20 Year Old Prospector

This oddball is a young man in the prime of
life who has inexplicably chosen to sport a
big, bushy, ragged prospector beard. I have
no idea what these fellows think this does for
them other than age them considerably and
make them look like they've flipped their lids.
The weird thing is that some of these guys
actually have women around them. What the funk?
Are looney prospectors big with the ladies these days?
Maybe they like to groom them ala chimps. There
is probably a lot of good eatin' trapped in those
colossal crumb catchers.

Note: These guys also tend to sport the winter
flip-flopper look detailed in vol.2.

The Winter Flip-Flopper

What's up with this guy? He wears full winter
gear: hat, scarf, coat, the works! Then, for some
reason, he skips boots and puts on flip-flops!
I'm not sure what he hopes to accomplish by this.
I saw two examples of this bizarre species at a recent
trip to Sparrows. One of them was sporting full
sandals, but the effect was the same.

I just hope she's got a good grip on the little fella.

Before you get angry, I must tell you that
the bird had it coming. It was running a
fly-by-night operation and bilked a lot of
people out of their seed money.
