Forced to be Polite

I was at the gas station yesterday and after I filled my tank the machine asked me if I wanted a car wash. My choices for answering were "Yes" and "No, thanks." No, thanks? I didn't want a car wash so I was forced to enter the polite decline. I wasn't thankful for their request, but I couldn't say no without expressing gratitude to them for asking me. There wasn't a "No, I don't want your stupid car wash!" option. It just bugged me.

Anyway this is an image I generated for another art challenge here at work. I was in a bit of a rush but I like the way it turned out.

Stream of Conciousness

Sometimes I can't think of anything I want to draw, even though I'm in the mood to. So I just start moving the pen with nothing in mind to begin with. The results of this are generally not good, but occasionally, like with these two images, something nice comes out.

Monsters and Dragon Quests

It's really cool working with a bunch of artists. We have Art Challenges every month, this month the theme is Monster's with a personality. This is my submission.
On a side note I've recently finished Dragon Quest 8 (after spending 90 hours with it). It is an absolutely marvelous game. It was one of those gaming experiences I can tell will really stick with me. Like Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Silent Hill, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy 7, Resident Evil 4, Shadow of the Colossus, and above all, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Dragon Quest 8 will go down in my personal Hall of Fame.
