This is not a sketch card illustration, it's just a practice. It's actually the 4th sketch that I did last night and I'm not going to show the other three! :D

Heheheeh, but he came back.
This is Phase One of the opening process.
There they are, sandwiched between the fluffy Styrofoam. I'm sure you're asking yourself what they are right?
Lord of the Rings BLANK sketch cards. I'm going to be sketching on these 106 cards that will then be inserted into the sets.
Well this is what I got. I think I look just like the Bandit!
After getting off the phone with customer service and discovering that there was nothing I could do to get a new hat in time I cut off the sequins and then spray painted it tan. The close up shot shows how poorly the hat took the paint.
So I tried some sandpaper and then some dirt to smooth things out a bit.
I used the c clamp to stretch it to fit bit better.
I then I took the band that I made for my Indiana Jones hat and there we have it! I posted the video to the contest site this morning and am waiting on approval to be able to share it with the world.
After dinner the car wouldn't start. We got a hold of some friends from church that have a vehicle large enough to take us home. heh :D memories...
Lucky for me we didn't need to put ALL the candles on the cake.
Um, earlier in the day I found Jackson eating dirt. Maybe he thought it was cake?

Here's a few gems;
Some people wear Superman pajamas. Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas.
Chuck Norris will never have a heart attack. His heart isn't nearly foolish enough to attack him.
Guns don't kill people. Chuck Norris kills People.
The chief export of Chuck Norris is Pain.
I decided to make a poster in honor of his toughness.
Edit** I just saw the headline on MSN "What really killed the Dinosaurs?" DON'T THEY KNOW? It was the Chuck Norrisaurus!!!

A few years back I went to the San Diego Comic Con. While I was there I ran into my friend from college Jess Hickman. She's a wonderful artist and I've always been a bit jealous of her talents. Anyway, I haven't been in regular contact with her but she always remembers my birthday. I told her that Spencer and I saw the book covers that her boyfriend Grant had made and that we printed them out for his school folder. I think they're great!

Jackson didn't seem too impressed with the costume.
Jackson on the bat cycle.
Talley goes to sewing lessons with my Mom and they worked on making her Indian costume.
I'm not sure where the idea came from, but Megan wanted to be an Angel.
Nicole decided on Snow White.
Jackson seemed pretty happy to settle for a Batman costume that Jenna made for one of the kids a few years back.
