This dinosaur is on alert. Is there a T-Rex on the prowl?

This is a figure drawing I did during the Australian Open, studying the body position of the one-handed backhand.

Tennis pros like Richard Gasquet (French) and Stanislas Warwrinka (Swiss) both have amazing and powerful one-handed backhands. It requires more muscle strength and may not be as accurate, but it allows extra reach and ‘snap’ as opposed to the two-handed.

sketch: cat sleeping

December 13, 2011

My cat looks like he is floating in space.  But no, he is just sleeping like an angel on the couch.

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.

What Easter means to me is spring and warm weather.  Today is very mild in the Northeast.  And warm weather means tennis.  Here is my sketch of a player getting ready to serve the ball. Happy Easter!
