A few recent things from a couple of sketchbooks. This first one is an auction of some sort.
A drawing of shoes from a J Crew catalog. That's the English poet Philip Larkin modeling the handsome boot on the upper left.
Those little milk bone biscuits are a great incentive when training a puppy. The sketch on top might have been shown here before, back when it was in black and white.
Anyhow, it's on the same page as this new one and I don't know how to separate them, so here it is again, only upside down and in color.

Saw this on an Italian sitcom.
It was funnier with a laugh track.
There is a good deal of white out on this - something I don't usually bother with in a sketchbook.
