Stinky Piggies

I'm practicing better techniques for computer drawing.  

Step one:  "How to draw a realistic metal tube". 

The drawing above took me two hours, TWO HOURS!  For that little drawing!  Doing things well takes time and patience.  I have a little time and zero patience.  I'll stick to my crude less realistic interpretations.  Like:


That black plume of smoke was the beginning of a stink cloud coming from the little piggy.  Eventually, I planned to insert other pictures in the back of the truck alongside the pig.  I got sidetracked.

The piggy drawing was inspired after I was driving and got stuck behind a tractor trailer that was hauling pigs.  While stuck behind it in rush hour traffic, I had time to ponder the animals journey to their death.  Eventually the stench shocked me out of my PETA stupor and I got the hell over and passed them while avoiding eye contact with those poor pork pooches as I passed by the truck.

In other news...

My dog, Steeler, turns ten years old this year.  To commemorate his birthday, I decided to put together a photo montage of him as a puppy.   Here it is:

Yes, that's right.  I have ONE PICTURE of him as a puppy, and that picture is actually a black/white printed copied from the web page picture that was posted from the seller.  I don't even have a puppy picture that I actually took by my own hand.  For shame!  What the hell was wrong with me?  

The only thing I can blame is that I had already had my two children and was in revolt on taking pictures.  I don't know.  Damn, this sucks.  Look how cute the little stinker was as a puppy.  I need more photos of him and it isn't too late.  He's still cute so I shall now go overboard with picture taking to try to lick my guilt wounds.  Here goes....

"Are you serious right now?"

"A freakin snowman bandana? What did I do to deserve this?"

"Maybe if I fake sleep she'll leave me alone.  Oh, who am I kidding."

QUESTION: Are you obsessed with taking a lot of pictures or are you lazy with it?  Or do you not own a camera and live in a remote part of Mongolia* where owning a camera is reason for imprisonment? 

(*I apologize to all Mongolians, I'm sure you allow your citizens freedom of picture snapping.  You are just the first country that popped into my brain.  By the way I love your beef dish.  Thanks)

PS.  I created an off shoot blog which will serve as a depository for my other drawings that don't really fit with the posts on my Hobo Blog.  If interested go check it out.  It is called "Canned Beans Gallery".  You can also find the link at the top of this page, in case you were wondering what "Beans" was.  I'll keep farting out pictures over there so check back.

I have 600 pictures on my phone. I should probably go through them at some point...

Usually a few end up on the blog, or on Facebook to show the kids to my long distance family, but otherwise it's something funny that I never do anything with.

I like your drawings as-is.
And I don't take a lot of animal pictures, particularly not whilst they do their business. I like that you are on a campaign to humiliate your dog. Too funny.

I burst out laughing at your puppy montage. Nicely done. I have a handful of puppy pics but I wish I had taken more before he became the behemoth he did.

I've been off taking photos for the last few years. I'm starting to regret not taking more already...
