I was the only one in the office today. The roads were covered with ice, but I needed to come in anyway. I didn’t feel much like drawing at lunch, but I decided to sketch something on some sticky notes and this resulted.
This is how I felt today. I went back-and-forth as to whether to use children or people in suits on the bicycles, and I finally decided I wanted this cartoon to work for everybody.
Mondays are just hard for me. It’s usually around Wednesday or Thursday before I finally get used to things and then Friday comes bringing so much hope! Saturday goes by way too fast and Sunday coasts uncontrollably right back to Monday where the ride is over and the cycle starts over.

I found this little gem while preparing for a drawing class. I don’t know how long ago I drew it, probably ten years or more, but it seemed like a waste to put back in my tub marked, “Dad’s Stuff – Don’t Touch.” I thought it would make for a great picture for my kid’s wall.
My kids and I have really gotten into archery since receiving bows for Christmas. Our foam target started becoming dull and they asked me if I would draw a rabbit to shoot at. This is not what they were expecting–I don’t think they’ll ask me to draw targets again.
Who am I kidding… they couldn’t wait to shoot this poor little guy!
My son returned from playing with his friend Sunday and relayed this joke he had just heard to my wife and me. He was a bit choppy with his recitation, but I laughed just the same. It’s a simple joke and that’s what makes it perfect for a lunch sketch.
I saw where Scott Adams (Dilbert) and The New Yorker have caption contests on their websites offering their readers a chance to contribute to a cartoon. I’d like to give that a try. Here is a comic sketch in need of dialog. The comment containing the most likes on FB will win and will go on the final cartoon.
