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!

Super Moon 2016.

This week's highlight in my world was night scooterin with my middle-ish child underneath the super moon!

Go Wildcats.

A little doodle I did for a sports program I help run for the students at Westside Elementary.....home of the Wildcats..

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.

Here is a little quote from Samson: "With a donkey's jawbone I have made donkeys of them".  This is from an awesome story in the Bible.  Samson kills a thousand men with a jawbone of a donkey. Then he throws the bone down and names the land Ramath-lehi.....which of course means height of a jawbone:)

My Mother-In-Law was in town for three weeks doing my laundry, my dishes, and cleaning my house.   I am going to miss her......oh and I guess she was here to see the grandkids as well. See you in the Spring Gramma.

The power of ponies.

So I coach soccer at various levels, this past weekend I actually used My Little Ponies to teach my 10 year old what pressure, cover, balance was when playing defense on the pitch.  It worked!

Three years without dad.  Bring on number four!  I miss the original Bibleman.

Sketcherin for a friend.

A little sketch I did for a friend who came through town this past weekend.  Good old Hellboy:) Bad movie however.

I am for light saber control.

Aqua Man.  He is one guy who loves the rain. Usually he is under the ocean but if it is raining he loves rising to the top. What makes you want to rise to the top?  Then do it.

Monday, September 12, 2016


The Ultimate Warrior. I never really liked wrestling, but I liked this guy. Probably because he was the underdog that defeated Hulk Hogan. You got to love underdog stories:) Go be an underdog story today!

Usain Bolt is the fastest man on Earth.....I think his track suit should have looked like this!

I had five minutes.....

Five minute iPad sketch while I was up North lounging on a couch in the town of Eagle River.

Junior Camp 2016!

Here is the flyer I created for WCYC Junior Camp 2016. We will be teaching the kiddos about the miracles of Jesus. Sometimes it is not about seeing......but believing!

Late Birthday to Bibleman.

Since I was in Montana, which is also know as the land without internet, I wasn't able to post this doodle on July 10th......which was my dad's 65th Birthday.  Miss him!

Happy 43 Falcon.

My buddy Robbie turns 43 today!  Here's to always believing you are a superhero!

Thursday, June 23, 2016


This was one confident man. Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. I like it:)

Summer chicken.

It is summer, therefore I shall doodle more:)

Filbert the fox.

This is Filbert the Fox.  His team won the English Primier League today. The odds were 5000 to 1!  So I had to doodle him.  5000 to 1 are also the odds that Elvis is still alive!

WCYC advertisement.

Don't forget to sign up you kiddo of any age for Wisconsin Christian Youth Camp this summer!!!

You can do anything.

Believe it or not, this is an elephant who can fly.  I am working on the story of it all right now.

More Earl Mitchell Company.

Here is the front of the voucher I have been working.  If you like barns and furniture then you will love Earl Mitchell barn furniture. 

Monday, March 21, 2016

Earl Mitchell Company.

My favorite furniture company is Earl Mitchell Co.  It's this guy with red hair who buys old barns that are falling apart out in the farmland of Ohio and tears them down and uses the old wood to build high quality furniture.  Amazing work I tell ya.  Here is a commission I did for his voucher.

I am about to get crazy busy again with soccer season starting.  This time of the year I often think about my favorite He-man figure from my childhood....Man-E-Faces.  I have to put on many faces this Spring.  Dad, husband teacher, coach, just to name a few.

Saturday, March 5, 2016


I have back pain this I doodle Stinkor from He-man.  Back pain stinks, it keeps you from doing stuff, that's when you need to make a decision to do other stuff.  So in a weird way it works out.  Stinkor by the way was a toy skunk looking dude who actually smelled bad.

Deadpool lessons.

So there is a comic book character named Deadpool that I used to read about.  He comes off as a bad dude but really can have some positive lessons about how to be successful.  Like stand up after you fall down and find and exploit a weak spot and use technology but don't be limited by know, stuff like that.  Too bad the movie is rated R and he has a potty mouth and some bad habits.

Wednesday, February 17, 2016


I just thought I would doodle out my favorite hat.  I am thinking I should coach a soccer game this season wearing this bad boy!

Year of the monkey.

Happy Chinese New Year!  2016 is the year of the monkey even.....whatever that is.

Another WCYC poster.

Wisconsin Christian Youth Camp is where it's at.  Robinson Creek is a blast, a tad bit cold, but a blast.  You haven't lived until you've gone "creekin".

WCYC camp poster.

Here is a poster I created for Wisconsin Christian Youth Camp.  There is this thing out there called "the camp clap".

Bama 2016.

So Alabama won the college football national championship last I sketched an elephant.  I guess Big Al is his name.  He dates back to 1930 when Bama won the championship while going undefeated.  My version is nowhere near as tough looking as the original Big Al!
