Pew pew! Sketch Dailies for #Independence Day starring #CaptStevenHiller that I did yesterday. BTW, I can’t remember if this movie was any good aside from convincing everybody that Will Smith was an action star - is it worth watching again?

The Boy Who Was Attacked By Crows!
A former coworker once told me about being attacked by crows as a teen and then they attacked him every few months for the REST OF HIS LIFE! All over the country!! Then one day it happened to my son Gus too, so far they’ve not returned but I’m always on the lookout. Have a rough outline in my head to turn this into a picture book someday - thanks for the inspiration Matt!

My version of #Encyclopedia Brown, co-starring Sally, Bugs & the “sleeping dog”. I was a big fan as a kid, loved trying to solve the mysteries. More practice with middle grade style illustration.
