Something sketchy

Ever since my sister sent me the link to this blog (which is fantastic and deservedly Internet-famous), I've been wondering if this old blog right here could use some visual spicing up. This notion will probably pass as soon as I remember that I'm lazy and have no artistic talent.

Still, today I challenged Kara to a Paint.net duel to sketch our son Evan, who looks like this:

And also like this:
Here's my first swag at it. I know it looks just like the pictures above, but I swear, this one is just a drawing:

A few minutes after I sent this sketch to Kara and dared her to bring it, she sent this:

It's tough getting destroyed like that in public. I mean, I assume it is tough for Kara. Winning feels pretty awesome, though.


  1. LOL... dude, that is awesome! I hope this is the first artistic duel of many, and glad that crazy site inspired you. THIS blog is way better, FYI. Evan gives you a huge leg up on the competition, in the pure cuteness factor alone.

    Dude, that chick blogger is like the female version of you...with smaller boobs of course.

  3. I talked to you both on the phone today, so do I still need to reply here? I'm going with no, except sort of yes.

  4. dude, what is that device that Evan is riding in in the first pic? Is that a trailer for your bike? I'm in the market for one...how much was that?

  5. Dude! It's an awesome bike trailer, yes, made even more awesome by the hand-me-downedness of the whole thing (thanks, Roscoe and Michelle!), so I have no idea how much it cost. We also bought an infant bike seat at Dick's that was 50 bones. Evan loves it when we take it off sweet jumps.
