Day 545: a palm reading

30.06.15: I found it funny. And who to not be funny with better than the "fortuneteller" from day 343 and yes that is his crystal ball too...

Day 544: a recycling bin

28.06.15: too retro? Might have zoomed in too much and the image has gone too pixelated... Sorry bout that...

27.07.15: you were expecting someone cuter perhaps...?

Day 541: skee ball

25.06.15: yeah, Junior's still got a little to learn about rules...

Day 540: a horse and carriage

24.06.15: another case for Jon Pay and Sergeant Linda O'Meilley of the CCPD. Those two always end up in a heap of trouble. 

     It is also a case of me liking the idea but wishing I had a few more hours to finish it... Maybe it can be used in a story and I can tighten it up a bit more...

Day 537: a telescope

21.06.15: I had a lot of options today. I could have gone with doctor professor von Fricken-Flicken-Blicken auf Brickenstein and some crazy telescope of inventive proportions. Or a regular telescope for the Tiny Adventurer or my peg-legged pirate captain. But this bossy pirate captain is a little closer to my heart.

Day 535: a Scottie dog

19.06.15: okay, nobody's gonna get this, not that there anything to get. It's just a Scottie dog wearing a white shirt, black coat with red lining, coming out of a blue box (which I may have drawn before...). No secret message or hidden meaning. Just what I decided to draw...

Day 534: a freezer

18.06.15: I should get bonus points for this one as I drew not one but three freezers...you know, a person that freezes you...huh?... What do you mean that's is not what they meant?!?! ...wow, wow, WOW, chill, okey. Why don't you just let it go, okey?!? No? Okey, how bout this FREEZE RAY!!??!!

Day 533: a carrot top

17.06.15: Yep, that is what it's like listening to Gus "arguing" by himself... Anybody feel like jumping in there?

Day 531: spats

15.06.15: had more ambitions than time on this one. Idea born of desperation, how do I draw spats (those white things over Smilin' Frankie Cunzo's shoes... Don't worry, I had to Google too...)and make it exciting. Plus I don't often draw such extreme angles. So the story of the the sealed envelope from day 179, thickens...

Day 530: a blackberry bush

14.06.15: will looking for inspiration I came across this beautiful blackberry bush that had overgrown the bench it been planted around, to the point where it looked like a house. And thus the angry blackberry gnome (or troll...there might be some crossbreeding in there somewhere...) Rubus Rosaceae and he blackberry bush home was born. At least that's my story and I am sticking to it... 

Day 529: a sheep

13.06.15: I was gonna say that this was the first time I ventured in to Aardman, but I have been there before... Anyway, Shaun rules!!

Day 528: an eggbeater

12.06.15: with no relation or to be confused with Pierre Saćhakér, I give you Pierre Eg'Beetér!! You must read his lines with a slight lisp and a strong French accent, otherwise it makes no sense...

(I'm sure I'm gonna get in trouble for this one...)

Day 527: shrimp cocktail

11.06.15: other than saying that back by popular demand, it's the jellyfish (did not know he was a bartender back on day 483... He's got the personality for it...aaaaaAAAAAHHH!!! Would you STOP stinging me!! I did leave you a tip!! The tip was stop stinging people and you'd get better tips! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!) I've got nothing to say about this cool shrimp who is about to enjoy his well-deserved cocktail!!

Day 526: a messenger bag

10.06.15: Tommy "the Kid" Bambino getting in over his head as usual. This time someone is using him as a messenger!! (And hey, are those the brass knuckles from day 10 or 69?!?)

Day 523: curtains

07.06.15: I'm late, it's late, I'm tired. Thank you, good night. Don't forget to tip your waiter and we'll see you all back here tomorrow night.

Day 522: a pinecone

06.06.15: laugh if you will, but pinecones are the height of fashion in headgear for gnomes!! Go ahead!! Tell me I'm wrong!!! I dare you!!

Day 521: a bow and arrow

05.07.15: more red curly hair!!

     I can not believe Junior is one today!?! Where does the time go?!? I can't believe is been one year (what I posted on the day, had nothing to do about nothing...). Watching these two crazy kids is...well, undescribable. It is truly the worst of time and the unbelievably best of any possible time.  But do notice that despite me drawing them as Merida and her brother, I did not tempt faith by drawing Junior as all three brothers!!!

     Happy birthday, Junior!

Day 520: an orphan

04.06.15: mostly based on reference of Leonard Starr but a little Irwin Hasen/Dondi influence snuck in there. It was either Annie or Oliver Twist (although some would say they are one and the same...). So the sun will come out tomorrow and someone will ask who will buy this beautiful morning...

Day 519: a playsuit

03.06.15: Yep, he is related to his father...
(And he is not standing unsupported yet!!)

Day 518: a saint

02.06.15: for the record and despite of the inside jokes, this sketch is in no way ment to be poking fun of my wife. I have seen how those two put her through the ringer. So when I read saint first thing I thought of was her!! She is an amazing lady whom never gets enough credit for all she does (and I never do her justice when I draw her...)

Day 517: a gourd

01.06.15: tired and late tonight. Sorry. Be back stronger tomorrow. Promise!!

Day 516: a houseboat

31.05.15: first off, happy birthday to both my dad and my sister. Hope you both had a great day!!

     Second off, as I launched the Jon Pay Facebook page over the weekend (https://facebook.com/JonPayPI), I would have been surprised if Jon and Gus didn't somehow work themselves into tonight's sketch. As my penmanship was a little off tonight, I will translate:

Jon:   Gus, I think I'd call that thing a "tent-dingy", not a "houseboat"!!

Gus:   No such thing as a "tent-dingy", boss.

Jon:   Oh, I have to disagree. You are sitting in one!

(And that is why I have Doc Monster write dialog and specifically punchlines for me...)
