Day 15 – Mysterious:


Happy ThanX-giving

Revisited another old treasure from the “X-vault.” Original sketch¬†by my sister, MJ. There’s no date on the drawing but my guess is 2000. Thought I’d add some color and try fixing it with shading. Nowhere near done,¬†so to be continued in the future.¬†Maybe another 16 years? Haha. Hope everyone had a great cook out and stuffed themselves silly this holiday! Don’t let Gambit cut the turkey.


Interpret the pasta sauce smear


A fun twist on the Rorschach test, don’t you think?

I saw Phoenix:


Blendo saw a robot penguin within the pasta bits:

My sister sees a… mohawk shadow king creature holding an octopus?


So, what do YOU see??

X-men on a bike


Bet you weren’t expecting….




Or THIS!! From BlendoGames:


Well when Blendo approached me for a prompt this week, I frantically¬†thought of two¬†random things that I liked. But when¬†I actually sat down to begin sketching,¬†I suddenly remembered…



My sister and I used to draw TONS of goofy scenes of¬†X-men. We may not have been accurate in our¬†perspective¬†or anatomical accuracy… but hey, it¬†was just for fun.

Just to¬†prove that I wasn’t trying to cheat out of¬†doing some work,¬†I did some¬†lighting and shading for some much needed practice:


A little quote I just heard on the radio today while working on this prompt, and a little something for our desensitized society to think about:

“You get in your car, and you have a better chance of dying than any other time of the day.”

I just realized that it may not be so apparent to everyone else what¬†this statement has to¬†do¬†with bikes.¬†But that would get¬†me started on my manifesto about our¬†transportation systems and choices.¬†Hint: Read Beast’s thought¬†to get an idea…
