Adam West.

Adam West has passed onto the great Bat Cave in the sky on Saturday. He was the first Batman I ever knew. Thanks Mr. West for not being afraid to put on those tights:) This doodle is for you.

Monday morning coffee.

Even superheroes need a little coffee on Mondays.  This was a long Monday.  I can tell because I currently cannot get off the couch:)

Here we go again.

Soccer season is upon us once again.  I have kids playing pretty much every day of the week!  Also, I am throwing in there my coaching gig with the High School team:) Just to make it a little more exciting and crazy.

Raising kiddos is an adventure. We are constantly busy running four kids here and there and everywhere. Then there are those times where it slows down and you feel like you can simply take a  walk.....until you have to jog and eventually run again. So I sketched out the king of adventure while I found some down time.

A few weeks ago I taught my Art classes about the Japanese artist known as Hokusai. I got the students to observe the "Great Wave...." by drawing their own version using crayon.  This was my version I did.

Wayne Rooney.

The man of the weekend for me was Professional footballer Wayne Rooney. He scored his 250th goal for Manchester United.  That is a record that will be hard to beat.  So obviously I doodled him while I watched the Green Bay Packers get crushed by the Falcons:)

Captain Heineken.

Over winter break I found myself watching quite a bit of soccer....with that I created Captain Heineken.  Heineken was advertised a bunch and I liked the red star on the green bottle.  I also learned that it was the first European beer imported to the US in 1933.  AND...of course it is brewed in the Netherlands.....home of "total football".

Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas.  This is the e-card I sent out to all our facebook friends.  I forgot to post it on the blog yesterday due to the business of the big day.  Sledding, brisket, communion, presents, hiking, painting, drawing, football, and of course slowing down to just simply be with family!

3:40 a.m. showing of Rogue One.

I was talked into going to Star Wars "Rogue One" at 3:40 am on opening day.  Then I will go to school.  I might not be a very effective teacher later on in the day, unless, of course,........the force will be with me:)

Happy Birthday Kung Fu Tiger!

My brother Josh has a Birthday today!  When we were younger he used to become an alter ego named "Kung Fu Tiger". He would often times climb on the soccer goals and meditate.....he got mad a lot and needed to cool off.  Peace on your Birthday brother!

Coach on the beach.

This doodle is inspired by one of my soccer coaching buddies.  He is the "High School Assistant Coach of the Year" in our Region and possibly the nation.  He will be picking his award up in January over in L.A. at the national soccer conference. I believe he said he was going to hangout at the beach in a soccer speedo.  So I just had to cartoon it.....mostly because I am not sure if I want to see that image in real life:) Sometimes cartoons are better.

Big Mac.

Since the creator of the Bic Mac passed away yesterday (James Delligatti) I wanted to go out and eat one for lunch.....I instead just drew a picture of one, which is of course a more healthier option.

Every once in a while I submit a doodle for "IF" (Illustration Friday).  Basically you illustrate a word of the week....this week is "spider". The Amazing Spider-Man came to mind.  I hope you have an amazing day!

Real doodles.

I know it is a digital world but I still use pen and paper quite a illustrations are just much more convenient and efficient these days. Oh, and you can do it in the dark while watching a football match.

Go Cubs.

Even though my last name is Cleveland I still want the Cubs to win the World Series tonight over the Indians.....only because of my friend Ryan.  I sent this sketch to him today.

Happy Halloween.

Freddy Kruger. He is a weird guy who chases people in their dreams. My kiddos were nothing close to this guy this year for trick or treating.  I had a cute vampire, a Batman, a pirate, and of course the wolf from little red riding hood.....I hope your Halloween was fun, sweet dreams.

I am part plumber.

Tonight I told my girls that I was part plumber as I poured Liquid Drano into their bathroom sink....they said "no you're not, you are an Art Teacher".  So I drew a picture of it.
