It's Hard Out Here For A Philistine

"...and after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel..."
                                                                        -Judges 3:31

Okay, so we know Shamgar killed 600 Philistines, but suppose he didn't do his oxgoading all at once...  Suppose he did it over a period of time...

Today, Shamgar kills Philistine #444 and Philistine #445











 Shamgar, art critic...? 

 Well, one thing's for sure:  Shamgar is a killer of Philistines.  And he's not done yet...

Cheers.

A Couple of Dancers


I'm putting together a couple of book projects, presently.  And that means you'll have to contend with a meager blog post for this week; just a sketchbook page with some dancers.


No?  Not enough?  Have you been checking out my webcomic, The Sacred Chickens of Rome?  No?  Well, then this would be a perfect time for you to go on a quick, 13-episode binge.  Get caught up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty crazy for those poor chickens...


Cheers.

How To Draw Dogs

When I was little, I used to have a couple of those How To drawing books.  I recently dug up the one about dogs, aptly titled How To Draw Dogs.  Wanna see it?



























*sob* I love a happy ending!

Cheers.

Shamgar Back On The Hunt

"...and after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel..."
                                                                        -Judges 3:31

Okay, so we know Shamgar killed 600 Philistines, but suppose he didn't do his oxgoading all at once...  Suppose he did it over a period of time...

Today, Shamgar kills Philistine #307 and Philistine #308






Brutal, Shamgar.  Just brutal.  Is no Philistine safe?

Cheers.
