My CSA peaches this year have been some of the sweetest, juiciest, most delicious I've ever had. Every week I'm so delighted to see them in my box, but every one I eat makes me a little bit sad knowing that this joy won't last much longer. And don't even get me started on the tomatoes. For once, I'll be sad to see summer go.

Lately most of my lunchdoodles have been little comic thumbnails. I haven't posted them because I feel like my lunchdoodles should be more finished, or at least involve ink. Which is silly. Somehow along the way I raised my lunchdoodle standards. So I tuck my thumbnails away figuring I'll ink or flesh them out later, and THEN post them. Instead these thumbnail friends stay deep in the confines of my Moleskine. Much like an antisocial youth living out their life in their parents' basement, the light of day may be seen eventually, but it's a slim chance.
SO I'm going to start posting thumbnails too. Which might actually act as a catalyst to ink some of them up.
Anyway. Got me a watermelon in my CSA box this week! I opened it up AND IT'S YELLOW ON THE INSIDE. My mind and tastebuds have been blown.
The final two. Now I just have to add trees to the backgrounds of all of these and then I'm done!
Coming along. Two more to go and then I have to illustrate the tree parts behind them
[three_fourth]Part one of five illustrations I'm working on. I'm creating five different trees, each capturing a different personality. This project is going to be supporting a fundraising effort by a local nonprofit where donors can purchase and donate trees. They'll be able to pick which "personality" of tree they'd like to donate. First one down and still have four more to go. Have to say though, this is one of the more fun projects I've gotten to work on in awhile. Truly realizing how much I relied on my Wacom tablet when coloring digitally. Coloring via mouse blows, but I'm still liking how this is coming along. Will be posting more along the way![/three_fourth]
[three_fourth]Working on some sketches for a new side project. A local nonprofit is launching an urban garden program. To raise funds, and get the planting under-way, they're going to be doing a tree sale. They want to have an illustration for each category of tree representing a different fruit and personality. I'm pretty excited for this one. It's so much fun, for a good cause, and for a good friend. Those just tend to be the best projects all around. Will continue to post as the project moves forward![/three_fourth]
