Nothing big today, just a doodle of a superworm. Before I have been feeding these critters to my aquatic turtles (who absolutely love them), I used to think they had a pair of legs on every body segment like a centipede. But looking closer while drawing them, I see they only have six pairs of legs. They only get to be two inches in length. Superworms are larvae that stay in this form for as long as a year and then eventually turn into a darkling beetle.

A little doodle of turtles sunbathing. My turtles look puzzled because its warm, but Fall is just on the horizon. So get ready for apple picking and the changing of the foliage, Autumn begins this weekend!

I started out drawing a chubby squid then it turned out to be a deep sea doodle.

When fishing. this year, I’ve been using more artificial lures. Partly, because I’ve been feeling sorry about the worms.

sketch: small tugboat

Seeing many kinds of tugboats outside the window, I can now draw one from memory.  Last time, I forgot the wheels.  Can’t forget the wheels.  They provide the bumper cushioning when pushing around massive cargo 100 times its size.

Although I didn’t wake up at 4am (eastern time) to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, I did record hours of it on the DVR.  And I was engaged by the British attention to detail, from the funny hats to the brilliant classic Aston Martin.  But what was most appealing to me was their horse and carriage, so I just had to draw a cartoon sketch of their ride from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

Today’s competitive game of tennis is not for the faint of heart. No longer is it about gently tapping the ball back and forth. Sorry Chris Evert. Both male and female players are as muscular as a Marvel comic superhero. The loud grunting of top players, Sharapova and Azerenka, is a testament to how hard every swing of the racquet is. Here is a quick rough sketch of Goerges, who through her fiery desire to win and powerful forehand was able to beat even the number one seed, Wozniaki, in a recent clay court tournament.

Just a quick sketch of tennis player receiving the ball.
