Sleep - Insomnia

I'm busy getting ready for a show this weekend (Wheatsville Arts Festival! Dec. 2-3! 3101 Guadalupe! Free admission! Etc.!) so my submission is very much a sketch. It was "inspired" by my lack of sleep last night. Drawn on cheap sketchbook paper with a cheap Pilot VBall.

even giant bear-like creatures have to sleep

here it is! SLEEP. still not 100% about it but i cant dwell on it.

Topic #2

Okay, i hope we are all well fed and rested from the holiday. seeing the huge responce to the first topic i thought that instead of one a week we should do one every two weeks. sos that we can have a bit more time, and i dont have to come up with all those topics. for this topic i thought id choose one that we all wish we could do more of, SLEEP.

*edit* ok so we are keeping it at one week.

Zombie Trio

here it is a little late, but hey its the holidays.
