Drawn & Quoted: Three Little Pigs

“All I ask is for a chance to prove that money can’t make me happy.”

Spike Milligan (1918 – 2002)


These little piggies went to market….the stock market. Investing in pork bellies can be pretty good business apparently.

Drawn & Quoted: Pity the Fool

The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.

King David (circa 1040 BC – 970 BC), from Psalm 14:1


Happy April Fools Day. No one better to ring in the day than Mr. T.


April Fools Day and Mr. T – I love it when a plan comes together.

Drawn & Quoted: Valentine’s Day

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”*

Paul of Tarsus (circa 5 AD – 64/67 AD)

Drawn & Quoted: Bird Is the Word

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

Anne Frank (1929 – 1945)


Drawn & Quoted: Blue Dogs

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.

– Groucho Marx (1890 – 1977)


Even the dogs know that was a corny line.

Drawn & Quoted: Mad Scientist

“Gee, Brain, what are we gonna do tonight?”

“The same thing we do every night, try to take over the world!”

– Pinky and The Brain (1993 – 1998)


It’s hard to take over the world when your evil lab is overrun with evil cats.

What’s truly evil is that they refuse to use the litter box.




Drawn & Quoted: Positivity

You’re going to go through tough times – that’s life. But I say, ‘Nothing happens to you, it happens for you.’ See the positive in negative events.

– Joel Osteen (1963 – present)


How’s that positivity workin’ FOR you, little doggie?

Drawn & Quoted: Bears & the Bees

“Survival starts by paying attention to what is close at hand and immediate. To look out with idle hope is tantamount to dreaming one’s life away.

– Yann Martel (1963 – present)


Bears do love their honey. I love doing drawings in my toned tan paper sketchbook. Win-win.
