Indulge This Proud Father

We made it home from our trip to Okla- homa. The family went there to see Andrea, our middle daughter, graduate from college. This is a snap shot I took of the moment she received her diploma from the University President. It's a proud moment for the wife and I and so I'm shamelessly using my blog to brag.

Hey! It is my blog isn't it? Indulge me a bit - won't you?

As I shared earlier, I had plenty of air time to get some doodling done on the planes. Here is one sample.

With recent work I did on the Hog Wild logo, I guess I had pigs on the brain. So, this doodle of a javelina (pronounced havalina) came to fruition. (I think I sound smart when I use the word "fruition.")

I still have a number of mullet illustrations to share, but I'm going to spread those out over time. Aren't you glad?

I had an idea of trying something a little different with this particular illustration. Normally I've hung onto my original artwork for prosperity sake, but with a daughter's wedding looming on the horizon, I'm willing to part with this illustration.

So...

The first person willing to drop a mere $25 for this piece can become the proud owner of an original Rick Green doodle. I'll even throw in shipping and handling for free.

Do you know a Razorback fan? Do you have an interest in desert wild life? Are you a wild hog? (Scratch that last question.) How about it? Are there any art lovers out there?

F.Y.I. It's a pen and ink illustration on an 8x10 piece of paper. No thrills. No spills. Just straight doodling.

So...

The first person posting a comment here telling me of their desire to purchase this piece can become the proud owner of this unique bit of artistic expression. (Talk about shameless promotion!)

Bet you thought I forgot about you, huh Rick???

Better. You brought back a hobby and I have to share it with you! You inspired me again.

I love your whimsical work. I see your personality and I "get it".

Years ago, I piddled with cameras. I'm slowly experimenting again. I would love it if you pop over and check out some of my most recent pictures. They're from a simple digital.

My mother recently told me that I should get a hobby so that when the girls grow up, I'll still have something to occupy my time. LOL>

I'm not a wild hog, but I can be a crashing boor. Hah!

If I had the dosh to spare, I'd jump on this, but alas, my home is addicted to the fruit of the Edison tree (aka: electric light) and I must pay bills. Should I hit the lottery (erm...note to self - buy a ticket!) I will get back to you!

Meanwhile, hurrah for graduating and marrying and other goings-on!!

Shade and Sweetwater,
K

Thanks for chekcing out my blog :)
Congrats to your graduating daughter! You are a lucky parent. My 2 sisters and I decided not to walk in our college graduations. So my parents paid a lot of money not to see us graduate ;)

Talk about talent. I think you have more in you pinky than I in my entire body :o). I graduated this spring and my parents were here to see it. It sure meant a lot to me as I'm sure it did your daughter.
