abbey road 50

I drew the Beatles in honor of Abbey Road’s 50th anniversary. Each has a lyric they wrote, or in the case of Ringo, the drum solo in The End.

Apollo 11 Seal (with dinosaur)

On July 20, 1969, 50 years ago this month, NASA sent the first human beings to walk on the moon. It’s the farthest any human has been from our home, the planet we evolved on, and the same planet every single one of us lives our entire lives.

Sure, politics played a large role in making the moon landing possible. But it would never have been achieved without a healthy dose of scientific and technical curiosity. I believe the lasting legacy of Apollo 11 will be of humankind’s quest to better ourselves and to learn more about the world and universe around us.

In honor of this anniversary, I made a version of the Apollo 11 seal. You’ll note the pteranodon instead of a bald eagle, but otherwise it has essentially the same elements.

Happy Moon Landing Anniversary, everyone!

monster truck monday

For whatever reason, I’ve been drawing monster trucks a lot lately. I’ve never seen one in person, but of all the land vehicles, they seem like the most fun to draw.

the grand canyon turns 100

On February 26, 1919, the Grand Canyon became a National Park. The geologic formations, which are actually quite a bit older, were preserved for generations to come. In honor of this historic anniversary, I made a drawing of the North Rim.

Our National Parks are more than vacation destinations. They are our heritage and our legacy. They are arguably the most American thing of all. Without that protected land, innumerable species of plants and animals would have gone extinct long ago. Rivers that irrigate our land and water our cities might be polluted and unusable. In short, there is no human project more important than knowing what not to develop.

When these lands are destroyed, they never come back. Here’s to the Grand Canyon, may it last far into the future.

coloring pages: scuffy and tootle

I’m separating these coloring pages because these are far and away LQ’s favorite characters. Scuffy and Tootle are each the star of their respective Little Golden Book. Both books are written by Gertrude Crampton and illustrated by Tibor Gergely. My undying gratitude goes out to them; they created characters that truly captured LQ’s heart and imagination.
