All Is Quiet On New Year's Day

"Under a blood red sky-
A crowd has gathered-black and white.
Arms entwined-the chosen few?
The newpapers say it's true, it's true-
That we can break through-
Torn in two-we can be one.
I....I will begin again."- U2

I'm gonna squeak in one under the wire and end '06
on the positive. A designer I work with commissioned me
to sketch a picture of her and her little brother. She
wanted it as a Christmas gift for her mother and first
mentioned this to me over the summer-she even gave me the
picture she wanted me to draw as far back as October- thus giving
me ample time to get it to her before X-Mas.
So of course I start drawing two weeks ago.
Whenever my back's to the wall to get something done under a deadline,
I always cue my ipod to play Billy Joel's "Pressure" on endless repeat and
don't stop drawing till it's finished or my head explodes from oversynthsposure.
Now Natalie (the designer) also happens to be a friend- She's one of those rare
birds who can hang out with the girls and talk about Commando Britney
in US Weekly and then turn around and rap to the guys about college football.
You can't say a bad thing about her-she's as cool as November.
And with that comes the burden of really, REALLY trying not to butcher this picture.
Because what if she hates it? Will she tell me? Actually, she probably would.
But she didn't thankfully. She genuinely loved it. It was awesome.
I'm happy with it, which-from me, is high praise. The End.

Happy New Year!
My New Year's resolution is to stop being so goddamned sexy.
Peace, Love and Happiness in '07-

Happy Holidays

I'm not sure how many posts will drop
between now and the New Year,
so this may be the last KennaSketch for '06.
It has been a fun first year at FrogDaddy Ink-
A happy and healthy holiday to you and yo mama.

Stop Me

Stop Me Oh Oh Ooh stop me.......
Stop me if you think that you've seen this pose before
Stop me Oh Oh Oooh stop me.....
Stop if you think that you've seen this one before.
