The Doctor and Sarah Jane

Knowing my "thing" for David Tennant, many people have asked me what I think about the new 11th Doctor in the Brit sci-fi series Doctor Who. I will, however, reserve my judgment until I see an episode with Matt Smith.

For now, enjoy this sketch of the 3rd Doctor, played by Jon Pertwee, and one of my favorites! It was definitely a campy incarnation, nearly Batman series-esque, with the Doctor often in futuristic cars whizzing about London.

And, the outfit!—high heel boots, bell bottoms, velvet jackets, frilly shirts, and a cape when it was chilly. It's true I actually dress more like the 10th Doctor, but I want to dress like the 3rd.

And for fun, I've drawn him with Sarah Jane as they appeared together...with her cute page-boy haircut.

Young Samson and Goliath

I've been combing through old sketchbooks looking for travel sketches and couldn't resist scanning this old gem. It's "Young Samson" from the old Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

Take a guy who looks like a college wrestler in a tight shirt and tight pants, send him roaming around the country on his scooter with his lapdog looking for trouble.

When he finds said trouble, he connects his leather wristbands to transform into a bodybuilder in a skimpy outfit and a bob.

When his super-strength isn't enough to save the day, another connection of the leather wristbands transforms his dog into a lion that can shoot laser beams from his eyes.

This gal took forever at the register of the self-check-out station at the grocery store. As if that wasn't bad enough, she kept searching her bag bent over at the waist, ass in the air, pointed to the rest of the line.

Seems like someone didn't go to finishing school. Or has no idea that many people probably don't want a stranger's ass in their face.

Only time I was more annoyed at the self-check-out was when this older lady was teaching her probably-adopted daughter how to use the scanner on a very busy night, and a very long line behind her.

If you need to teach your children, save the lesson for a time that you aren't inconveniencing everyone. If it takes a village to raise a child, I guess I just want to move.
