Scooter Girls

I've always wanted to do an "Al Parker" type illustration.  Today I grabbed an old very rough piece of plywood and set about doing a new piece.  See, my job at the Golden Gate Bridge ends in a week and I guess that feeling of freedom (no more graveyard shift) and impending doom got the juices flowing again.  This took about 2 hours.  I'll do some more work on it later but, for now I'm happy with the results.

So I am putting my art to hopefully some good use.  These drawings are for a comic / coloring book I am doing for the California Land Surveyors Association.  It will be distributed to elementary school children when surveyors come to visit and demonstrate just what it is we do.   I figured it would be a great way to introduce kids to the practical side of mathematics.  I know that when I was in high school algebra and trigonometry were too abstract a concept for me, though geometry was a breeze.  I hope to be able to show how it all applies in the real world.  Only 16 more pages to go!  Larger images can be seen on my flickr page.
