For those who wish to draw more

I drew a World Series metaphor… November 5, 2009

… at the John Hodgman reading.

The New York Playground Bullies vs. Philadelphia Philladelphian(s)

The ropes, they do nothing.

From Mark Summers’ illustration of Gulliver’s travels at the Union Square Barnes and Noble (barely visible in the background here). In the original, Gulliver is just waking up and lifting his hand—it does not look like the little breeches guy is about to get a King Kong grip like is so clearly going to happen in my sketch (no room for brains in my breeches guy’s tiny head. Sad.).

Drawing from an illustration was weird at first but the subject matter made me smile, which seems to be the running theme of my DrawMo subjects so far.
