The Cubscouts Just Sucked One Year of My Life Away...

They might one day go as high as five, but they really don't know what that would do to a person...

As of late I have spent way more hours of my life than I ever intended on...you got it, the Cubscouts. Tonight's offering is brought to you by a two and a half hour long Cubscout Health and Safety meeting. Well, one thing I can say for the Cubscouts--there are always a lot of characters at these things.
It's funny how sometimes when you start drawing in a crowd, people will ignore you or eye you suspiciously, as though they are wordlessly challenging you to some kind of staring contest. Occasionally people are interested in what you're doing and want to see your drawings. Then a crowd forms and everyone is looking at your not-so-flattering interpretations of them. The large woman on the right hand side of the third one down happened to love the picture of herself.
And that made my day.



As a sidenote, I don't typically go for likeness so much as for personality, but I'd like to mention that this guy is spot-freaking-on. I was very satisfied.

Really great. I admire your ability to shamelessly draw people, I need to work on that.

I had to be an assistant den leader for the Wolf scouts once. Death unto me.

You have my sincerest condolences, cuz.

Wow, these are VERY different from your usual product, Holden. I dig this venture into likeness and plausibility. But don't stay there too long. You'll get bored.

Dude, people's reaction when you draw them is awesome. Not that I do it much (at all) but when I have, it's been entertaining.

Also, glad you made it out of the Scouting meeting alive. I'm sure that was a bit scary.

Way cool. These guys have really got a lot of personality.
