Computer Confusion

Vincent and his wife Melissa are friends of ours. She asked me to create a surprise Christmas gift for him. So that's what I did.

Vincent is the computer guru at his place of employment and so I decided to put him the midst of a bunch of computer confusion.

I neglected to scan the photos that I used of Vincent so you don't have a way make a comparison between the real him and the doodled him, but I think that it came out well. They were pleased.

Now a blast from the past...

Many, many, moons ago Brenda commissioned me to draw an illustration of her husband Chris. Yesterday she presented it to him as a birthday gift. (Wow, Brenda, it's been nearly a year since I posted the caricature of your husband - no need to be in any kind of hurry.)

She said that he loved his doodle. I am told that he wasn't feeling very good that day. I appreciate him posing for these photos just to please me.

I also like the photos that Brenda posted on her Facebook account of their 25th Wedding Anniversary in Antigua.

Don't they make a cute couple.
I think that's a tiny outhouse behind them.

Nebraska has been experiencing an Arctic blast.
Brenda says that she wants to move to Antigua.
I can't understand why.

This is a photo of her foot.
For some reason she felt it important for me to see this pic.
The Good Lord only knows why.

Thanks again Brenda. You're a fun person to kid around with. Stay warm and give my regards to the family.

Love how proudly he is holding the drawing! Neat!

Stop by my place, there's a lot of action going on...

You are so ornery. That last photo is one of me in my swim suit.

To Brenda: What are you worried about? From head to toe you look great!

Rick, the drawing of your friend could be Dave if it had glasses. I can't wait to show it to him. You know, he's computer guy here at home with a sideline business as well as a volunteer in the computer ministry at LOVE, INC.

Very cool drawing with tons of detail. I bet your friends love it!

Wow Rick! You put a lot of work into the doodle of Vincent. Nice, very nice. I also saw my signature 'peace sign' in there as well as 'eggy'. Thanks for sharing this great post. xxoo
