After the working day I found some old and some new bits to scan. The sleeping fella at the bottom really did look like this. He was covered in a fine plaster dust and asleep soundly all the way from one end of the subway ride to the other. Our siameser Jasper does have eyes, but I amused myself by not drawing them in this sketch. The red girl is a doodle.

This is an envelope for a card John decorated for me, to mark the start of a new series we were both working on last year. Lucky me- I storyboarded two of his scripts for this show. I wish we could work together more often!

This is JvB's take on the two little pig characters from the show... this drawing always makes me laugh.
