The Quest for the Z

So today Jason and I drove all the way across the great big boring everglades, to Cape Coral, FL to see this car. It has potential. Owner and I agreed on a decent price. This hunk of junk very well could be in my driveway next weekend, oh noes!!!

"30 year old cars are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

I did as much as I could, tested compression, floorboards, framerails, started the car on starter fluid, etc. It's gonna need alot of work to be decent.

Anyways, buddy Jason took some crazy stormy sunset everglades pictures on the way back (I75 otherwise known as Alligator Alley looks like the pictures for 100ish miles straight)

So today while trying to get a funnel so I could change my oil, I forgot my wallet at home, while simultaneously locking the keys in my mum's car. So I was walking home, got distracted by a Publix (groceries) water fountain, and started reading popular science. There's so much cool shit in that magazine!

New Machu Picchu kickoff (Wedrawcars)

For our utopia project over at Wedrawcars.blogspot.com

I did this tonight, there are a few versions. It's not an exact replica of Machu Picchu, but it has the same general characteristics. My only concern now is that the slope may be too steep on the flat parts. What do you all think?


what do you know

and.....back to my comfort zone already. just making sure the tablet still works on the ancient home computer


Sketchbook summer

Here are some from Pleasant Valley Campsite in Equinunk, PA.  I used to go almost every year when I was younger, always loved the place.  My grandparents replaced their old camper there with a newer bigger one (with a slide out section) which I hadn't seen yet.  I used to hang out with the campsite owner's kids all summer, since they were around my age.  Now theyre all going to college and taller and whatnot, but still the same kids I knew.  And now there's a whole new batch of younglings to run around all crazy like we used to.

Heres me looking in the mirror at my aunt's house in NJ

Started drawing an airship on the plane ride home

A house that always intrigued me across the street from my aunt's place.  It's mostly dark wood.

Some angry faces



Just got back from my mini romp around the northeast. Soooo refreshing. It's great to be back home in warm, sticky Miami. Stay tuned I've got some sketchbook pages coming soon.
