As you may (or may not) know, my hubby draws comics. Not Spider-Man style, Calvin and Hobbes style. He also writes and illustrates picture books (written for adults but kids also enjoy them). Selling his books is how we make most of our living. As a side business, he also does book layouts for people (taking the word document and/or illustrations and getting it/them ready for the printer). Anyway, today’s pictures are all about his drawings. A little back story first, though.
The way he sells enough books for us to live off of is by going into locally owned grocery stores and doing a “book signing.” Basically, he sets up a table and some books and sells them girl-scout-cookie style. Back in December, a rep from Smart Car bought one. About a month ago, he (the rep) emailed hubby inviting him to be part of the “Art Your Smart” event in Portland. Basically, hubby gets to spend the day (yesterday and today) drawing all over a Smart car white-board style.
Here are the four sides of his creation:
Warning: DO NOT TRY THIS on a regular car. White Smart cars are made out of a material that will dry erase with expo markers. Regular cars are not. I take no liability for any drawn-on cars.
Have a blessed weekend! And Happy Cinco de Mayo for any who celebrate it :).
That is AWESOME! Very talented guy you have there!
Yep, I got lucky with him 🙂

This is so cool! My hubby draws comics too (he also animates) – if only we could make money off of his talents!
How neat that you have a comic artist too! We definitely count our blessings that he can earn a comfortable living doing something he loves.
