Light One Candle

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I've been studying on this one for more time than I care to admit to, but hey... I figure a fella is much further ahead to leave a game with all of the 'original parts' than to pray for a good source of OEM replacement parts.

Note from Kerry:

Wow Jim, I could study this drawing for hours, I just love it! All your time was well spent, the smoke effect is brilliant and the intricate work on the little match holder, well, that's just a wow.

Pay Attention

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


This is one of those of those cases where you really need to pay REAL CLOSE ATTENTION to all of the advertising details!

A case where 'cheep' is a danger cry!... not a reduction in cost!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi again Jim, I must say that I really like this one, it ranks as one of my favorites.

Venice as a Small Town

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Every once in a while I am pulled into one of the many scenes that I often write about, and I try to show just where some of the 'action' is taking place. Of course there are times like this... and I am completely lost!


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, I love this drawing even though I'm a bit lost, too. I have never had a sense of direction so it's no surprise there!

A Greater Question

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Getting back to that time old question of the chicken or the egg, one might ponder a greater question, who held the light to turn on the switch when it all started?

Hmm-m-m-m-m......


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
That's an interesting drawing and I'm pleased to see you branching out into different subjects. The hand is drawn perfectly and an admirable piece, as usual.

A Place To Dream

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


At times, I can visualize just such a fortress. Calm, quiet, isolated... Far away from real life. A place for dreams to turn into reality...


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim, I love seeing drawings like this, I can spend ages looking into it. I like it, thanks for sending it in.

A Study In Confusion

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


This little exercise should be included on every application that deals with politics. If they can understand it, don't hire them! If they can't understand it, they can qualify for any position under the level of Secretary of State...


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
Well, I can't stay, I'm off to join the political game!! Awesome drawing, they'd have to put me away if I tried to draw this!

Who Drew The First Map?

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Everyone needs 'some direction' in their life... Who they get it from is another matter altogether...

If memory serves, Rand - McNally also created the first "1-800" service. Problem was, it connected the caller to a 'crisis intervention site'. I guess folding maps was a problem even back then!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
I hope I have put the right story with the right drawing. Just let me know if you want it changed.

Your drawing would keep me entertained for ages! Simple minds, huh?

Semper Fidelis

Semper Fidelis

Semper Fidelis

I'm a MARINE. That pretty much says it all...

***Note from Kerry:
Great drawing Jim!

Mental Tattoo Drawing

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Another mental tattoo. I guess you can see where my mind tends to wander. That is why I don't let it out by itself too often.


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, I hope you warn Emilie when it is let out!! Wow, talk about gremlins...
Again, the skill in this drawing is superb.

Cutting Remarks

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I have always fancied myself decorated with a few well chosen tattoos. Possibly the Marine Corps Bull Dog "Chesty Puller", a few skulls or even one of the most difficult to do well... a rose.

But I chickened out at the last moment... I can tattoo my mind a lot cheaper!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
Because I know you are an exceptional artist, I have to remind myself not to take your drawings for granted - each one deserves a good study. I just continuously shake my head with what you can produce.

Sigh... Just another day in Paradise...

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I've always tried to find things that would live up to the old adage - a picture is worth a thousand words.

This, I think is worth two thousand...

***Note from Kerry;
This drawing is so great, Jim! It portrays another adage and although it's not quite the way I remember it, going by the illustration I think splitting would be the thing to do. Very funny!

Chuppacabra

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I don't exactly know where some of these little 'misfits' will fall, so I will leave the classification to you. If it were up to me, I would call it both ways - depending upon the current population numbers. Does that work with everyone??



***Note from Kerry:
Jim, I must lead a sheltered life, I've never heard of these dudes until now! I say he looks interesting but I don't ever want to run into one.

A Family In Waiting

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Here is another one of my sculpture rough-outs. I try to put everything I carve onto paper, clay or balsa wood first, just to see if it has any potential. If not, I still have an interesting piece of 'something'...


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim, I can see the family, this is brilliant. You have a fantastic collection of artwork, your visitors must stand in awe.

A Salute

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


With a bit of artistic license here, I think the "Blue Mule" original in the movie would be proud!


***Note from Kerry:
Jim,
I have to plead ignorance, I really don't know what movie you are referring to. All I see is a fantastic drawing!

Your Ride is Here

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Way-y-y back when up to this day I have had a fascination with two major artists of vastly divergent schools of thought.

Frank Frazetta is one, and as soon as you see the art you'll know the name, and the second one is, well, in a name... "Vargas". What else can I say...



***Note from Kerry:
Gosh Jim! What can I say? This is superb, I just love the mane on the horse and your detailing, well, it's unreal, as usual.

Contemplation

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I took several similar sighting reports and combined the characteristics to come up with this rough study. I still need to finish it off, but it's a start.

Open to ideas, suggestions, or...?



***Note from Kerry:
Gee Jim, you are keeping me alert today. Ok, I'm game to ask, sighting reports of what? You may not know what so I'll concede that one, so where has "it" been sighted?

***Note from Kerry:
Jim, I love this drawing!

Hope you don't mind, I moved him into "Cartoon".

Gotcha

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I remember each year when the new models came out (around the first week or two of September) I loved to 'window shop' and see up close what I couldn't afford!

Some cars were so fast when you bought them, they came with eight speeding tickets already in the glove box! Just hand one to the officer and he would punch it and give it back and you went on your way.

Those were the days, yes?


***Note from Kerry:
That's very funny, Jim. Great cartoon! I enjoyed this one.

Border Patrol

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I think if the proper strength is applied to each task, the results might just be better than one might imagine!


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, this is truly impressive! It's good to know you can still surprise yourself.

The Pirate's Hand

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Dispatched during a scuffle aboard ship, the Captain's hand will not be serving him well anymore.

How about we observe a moment of silence, then give the man a hand... I guess we could wait till 'Palm Sunday'?

I guess it's just out of my hands now...


***Note from Kerry:
Hands down that's a terrific drawing, Jim!

Is this to be an entry in Marty's contest?

Close Quarters

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Picture yourself walking down a rain-drenched street in the French Quarter of Louisiana. Bad gas lighting, cannot make out figures, your only ally is your acute hearing that allowed you to hear the double click of a pocket derringer being made ready to do no good.

"Got a light?"...


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
Your drawing is fantastic! You'd think there was a real gun lying on this page...

The Energizer Bunny

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I am certain that somewhere along the line, there sits what amounts to a Bunny Comfort Station. Just between you and me, rabbits don't live up to their reputation on cute looks alone!

Behind every good "Buggs" there sits a Ms. Buggs with a battery charger - of some type!



***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim, love the eyes!
