Monday Sketchin’…

Well, it’s been quite a month here at Lake Effect Central – tons of outside distractions have kinda/sorta taken over for the time being -but alas, I can’t stay away for too long, so here we go with some more sketchbook silliness! I’m gonna try and get stuff up a bit more often, (as in, at least once a week) – in fact, I may just roll out some of the greeting card stuff I’ve done, some more children’s book illos and then we’ll get back to some cartoons, or maybe more sketchbook stuff – because, hey, that’s what I do!

So again, many apologies for the lack of new stuff over the last few, but I’ll be sticking around – just gotta get other projects outta the way first!

Buh-bye 2012!

Well, Happy New Year’s and all that stuff! As we hit the finish line on 2012, all of us here at…well…my cartoon-blog-thing…want to wish everyone a great 2013 and beyond…hm…that sounded kinda Buzz Lightyear, but hey, you get the idea.
Anyway in the spirit of ‘year end’ wrap-ups, I thought I’d roll out some of my favorite cartoons over the past year. Not just because I personally think they’re funny, but also because I’m lazy and I always wanted to do a ‘year in review’. There’s a real limited window of opportunity for this stuff and, by golly, I’m takin’ it!

So, here we go – the “Lake Effect Year In Review”:

May – 

theatre

Apparently, many people go to the movies for all their social networking needs.

venn2

Headstone humor…I wonder if Venn was, in reality, cross-eyed?

witch2

The witch would’ve been better off seeing a dermatologist about the whole green skin thing.

June – 

50new

Haven’t I read this stuff before? Like in a Penthouse magazine I found under Dad’s bed in 1973?

cards

It’s amazing what greeting cards are able to do nowadays. Buy some. It keeps me working.

July –

chickens

We all have goals. Mine is to see “Django Unchained’ at some point this week.

zombies

Zombies: trending down…

August – 

inout

Ever have one of those days? Like, every day?

patsandybatman

I liked “The Dark Knight” better.

September –

dogcartel

I figured ‘Jack Russell’ sounded funnier than ‘Bichon Frise’.

October – 

apps

I think a cool app would be one that turns every day into Friday. Or, better yet, eliminates Mondays.

November –

shirt

The Americana music trend is now officially everywhere, including fashion. God help us, if the next trend is, say, 80’s techno…Kraftwerk, anyone?

OK, that oughta do it – I could post more, but it’s time to go crack open some champagne.
Happy New Year’s Everyone and see you in a few days – hey, I’ll need to recover from all the revelry of falling asleep in front of the TV at 11:30!

Hunka Hunka Holidays

elfpatsandy

Ah, Christmas! Finally! After all the shoppin’ and general overall craziness, we’re heading into the homestretch. Although, I actually prefer Christmas Eve to Christmas day – must be an anticipation thing.

Anyway, those of us here at Lake Effect (meaning – me, and my occasional editor, the ever-vivacious, Miss J) wanted to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and any other celebration you observe at this time of year.

It’s a pleasure working this blog and I appreciate every single ‘like’, comment and view that comes my way…it’s a blast, and the interaction with you guys is what this is all about – so, thank you – you’re the best!

And, with that, I’m going to go do some last-minute Christmas errands (because there’s always last minute Christmas errands, isn’t there?) and wish everyone the best during this holiday season and into the New Year!
