Cribbage board and lopsided Rush

This is an in progress digital Rush. It's about 2 hours of work, and I think another few hours should finish it up, or at least to the to my satisfaction. For whatever reason, I still haven't been able to get a good likeness of the asshole, so this time I'm doing it digitally and fixing it up until I get a likeness thats up to par.

About a week ago, I spent the afternoon carving a cribbage board. I used to play the game every now and then with my old man, but since I've been at school, I had no cribbage board. So I said to myself, "Self, you should just make a cribbage board." And so I did.

Marc the wood worker?

I got a chance to do a little woodworking last week. My girlfriend Melissa asked me to help her build (or build it while she watched) a plant stand for her wheatgrass, which she's started growing. It was pretty fun, and I haven't had any building projects in a while, so it felt good to be in the wood lab again.

Here's the growing light under the top shelf.

Also I carved a cutesy bear pen for valentines day. It turned out alright, but I could tell it's been a long time since I did any whittling. Sorry about the fuzzy picture.

Right-Wing exaggeration!

Here's a few sketches from drawing class today. I think the one of Rush Limbaugh is my favorite, even though his mouth looks a bit messed up. Other than him, there's a Glen Beck, Papa Bear O'rielly, and lastly Sarah Palin. I missed the likeness on that one, but I like the exaggerations I did a lot better than every drawing I've done of her before.

Freelance sketchy sketch sketch...

Recently I was approached for a little freelance gig. Just a few gag cartoons. Below are the prelim sketches.

The gag that went along with this one is pretty self explanatory. Ironically, this one really hit home since a very similar situation occurred in my studio not more than a week ago. My cat happened to tip over a large cup of water all over my desk and pretty much soaked everything. Life goes on I guess.

I did revisions on all the sketches by now, but I thought I would post these as they are.
