sorry about the delay

I haven't been doing as much sketching lately, I've been sorely lacking inspiration but hopefully I'll come out of it soon. Anyway, all I can remember about this page is that the guy on the bottom left was my attempt at doing some type of Garbage Pail Kids looking guy. I think.
I found this awesome book of old carnival illustrations and so tried to draw a few of the woodcuts and lithographs from it. Like usual, I gave up and let my mind wander and came up with the rest of what's on the page.
For some reason I was in the mood to draw people in period costumes, so there ya go.
The critters on the bottom part of the right page were designs for a Munny I finally completed. If I can ever find my digital camera I'll post pictures of it.

the little sketchbook that could

I'm thinking about turning "The What Bus" image into a large painting, but chances are I won't.
After getting the awesome "Terr'ble Thompson" book by Gene Deitch, I tried drawing some of the characters and realized he is a cartooning god among mere mortals.

More melting snowmen and dripping snot. What's wrong with me?
I bought a vintage Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters figure on ebay and the blue guy on the left was born.
Lots of happy people on these pages despite the guy on the right side of the left page wanting to die.
Trying to draw more Gene Deitch characters and, of course, more dripping stuff.
Vomit! And Lard Nuggets! Seriously, what's wrong with me?!?!
