Summer Pleasures

We’re a day away from our much-needed vacation, so maybe that’s why this cartoon emerged from my drafting table…

Happy Summer!

From My Sketchbook – Rhymes and Doodles

He knew it wasn’t new,

The view was déjà vu.

So he zoned instead,

Looking straight ahead.

Can You Send Father’s Day Cards to Heaven?

Sigh.

I know the answer to that one, but just in case my dad is still reading my blog from “afar,” I’m posting this early Father’s Day card…which just happens to be based on one of my earliest memories with him.

(P.S.  This illustration is also available as an 8.5 x 11 print)

Happy Birthday to Me!

In case you’re wondering, I am not 60 –  nor am I turning 40 today.  I AM grateful for celebrating another birthday and for having the support of my wonderful husband, my family and my friends.  (Oh, and there’s that sense of humor thing, as well.  I’m very grateful for that, too!)

(P.S. To purchase the greeting card version of this card, please click here.)

My Favorite Things – Cafe Dates with My Cartoon Friends

I do have real friends, actually, but sometimes it’s just as fun to take myself out to a cafe with my sketchbook for some people watching and cartoon friend creation.

Case in point, this past weekend I walked to the Upper West Side Maison Kayser

And ordered a cafe latte and a slice of flour-less chocolate cake.

It was a hopping time to be at Maison Kayser, so I had fun picking subjects to sketch.  A party of four arrived at the table across from mine a short time after I sat down.  I captured one of the gentlemen in the group perusing the menu…as you can see, people tend to look happy when they’re reading the menu at Maison Kayser

And I could imagine him thinking…

 

Oh dear, oh my, what to choose?

Everything’s good, so there’s nothing to lose.

My belly has room for dessert, of course,

Too bad the sugar will cause remorse.
