Tour de Donut

What if I told you there was a bicycle race where your ability to eat donuts was just as important as your ability to ride a bike fast? This summer in Troy, Ohio the Tour De Donut will take place. It is a timed ride and FIVE MINUTES will be DEDUCTED from your elapsed time for EVERY DONUT YOU EAT! I’m headed to Krispy Kreme right now so I can start training for this ride immediately!

Notre Dame FUMBLE!

As a good lil Hoosier who lives 30 minutes away from South Bend, all I wanted to do on Saturday night was see how Notre Dame did playing Clemson in a monsoon. To kill time as I waited for the game, I scratched out this picture. The game started and Notre Dame proceeded to fumble the ball away about forty-seven times. I’m not saying I was responsible for any of that… I’m just saying maybe next week before the game I will draw a Notre Dame football player leaping into the end zone with the ball securely tucked under his arm.

Music City Bowl 2014

My son Nick (a Notre Dame fan) and his wife Rachel (an LSU fan) will be here over the holidays. While here, their two teams will be playing in the Music City Tackle Football Bowl and I can hardly wait to watch that game with them…

(actually, what I can hardly wait for is to watch Nick and Rachel watch the game together in the same room… that could be more entertaining than the game)

…and after watching both these teams play this season, I put my prognosticator hat on and made this bold prediction picture.

Upgrading To Yosemite

Anytime you change operating systems you can expect trouble somewhere, and when I upgraded my OS to Yosemite it created a couple of Cintiq issues for me. I needed to figure the problematic areas out by rendering a piece of artwork, so I grabbed this 10 year old sketch and used it to see where the glitches in the system were. I deleted my Cintiq files, downloaded and installed new drivers and that solved… a few of the problems… and when the dust settled I looked at my sketch and thought, “hey… good enough to put on the blog”…

~ OCTOBER 22 UPDATE ~

I use Photoshop CS6 and I just discovered that the problematic performance issues had nothing to do with the new Yosemite operating system. Photoshop was just not playing nicely with my Wacom Cintiq. I found a Photoshop plugin called White Window Workaround, installed it, and now everything works like a charm. It is specifically for Photoshop CC and CS6.
