Voter ID Rally

This rally was actually about voting for Obama and thinly disguised with some nonselse about the violation of rights. A rally over ID would have made sense before the law was enacted but that didn't happen. The issue is already being addressed in federal court. In reality this rally was just an Obama rally. The dishonesty if awesome.

Sketches From Maine

maine maritime museum bath maine
Caulker's Shed, Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine. When I draw buildings I usually get done and remember why I don't draw buildings.

lobster pinching lip
Another reason not to like lobster. I really don't like seafood that crawls around on the ocean floor. I also hate banana-strawberry yogurt but not for the same reason.
man yelling at girls in park
This is a true story. Steph and were sitting in a park drawing (she was reading) and this man became annoyed with two little girls, that he was not with, because they did not say his dog was cute after they said another nearby dog was cute. I think that he was overreacting.
These are a few of the sketches that I completed this last week while visiting Maine. I love that place.

Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia

Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia harrisburg pa coo
My sketch of Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia who is Harrisburg's COO and will essentially negate the office of the mayor. At least that is what state appointed receiver David Unkovic's plan called for. Despite saying that she would follow the plan after Unkovic resigned, Mayor Linda Thompson has begun calling Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia a Business Administrator and that he in no way takes away from her power. She is good at making up new titles and even calls herself "the CEO of this city." Please pardon those of us that are not drinking the Cool-Aid. 

HERE is a Roxbury News video of Mayor Linda Thompson on the matter.

Lighten Up, Harrisburg

My drawing for an article by Matthew R. Krupp who is the founder of Lighten Up, Harrisburg!. This initiative is working to replace burned out lights and install new lights in areas of Harrisburg that are in need. The initial goal is to replace the many burned out lights on Walnut St. Bridge. Hence the bridge drawing. Mr. Krupp's article is on today's the day Harrisburg and you can read it by clicking HERE.
