Hey Party people,

Well like a bum I missed getting a post last week, that means this week I got two! Yup, a little later this week I’ll have another Captain Rocket cartoon for ya.

For right now I’ve decided to post some of my vacation sketches. My wife Sandra, and I, after about seven years of planning, finally managed a European vacation. First we stopped off in Zurich, since Sandra’s middle-school friend Jessica now lives out there, playing with “lasers”. Then we took train rides all the way down to Rome, stopping off at a few cities as we went for a few days. It was a lot of fun, and for the most part we did nothing planned. Just walking around towns trying to hit a few icon spots. Funny enough, when we hit Rome, we ran into another one of Sandra’s middle-school friends, Louise. She and he husband ran off to Italy on their own and it just happened on the same days Sandra and I did. How weird is that!? Anyway, we went to dinner a few times and just fun all around.

One of the main things Sandra wanted to do when we were in Europe, was to do some open air painting. So she brought along some watercolor painting supplies. While she was doing that, I would draw in my sketch (no ruler or anything so be kind). First here’s a sketch of a the Church of San Lorenzo, in Port Verne. While in Port Verne I sketched Sandra painting away too. Then in Florence we checked out Michelangelo’s David (so we sketched that too). Then in Rome, we hung out in a park and we sketch the Tempio di Esculapio, which was in the middle of the lake/pond.

Then we flew back to Los Angeles, and saw our poor cat Leia had lost quite a bit of weight while we were gone- poor thing. But she was a little over weight anyway, so all good I guess. Anyway, hope you enjoy the pics and I’ll catch ya on the flipper.

Mego Knights!

knights Hey party people, it's blog time. This time I thought I'd talk about toys. As you may recall, I've talked about being a kid of the 70's and revering Mego toys as the best of the decade. I still own the Batcave and their other great superhero toys (all very well played with). One toy I never...
