The progression of color of the Flint River Collection design.
- I made a copy of the b+w version and then painted it with watercolor.
- Then, I cleaned it up a bit. Observe the rat’s tail and his tiny little rat-hands.
- Finally, after some further Photoshop color manipulation, the finished piece.
P.S……….I have closed my Patreon. I would like to thank everybody for your contributions. You are awesome! Double thanks to my best buddy, Dave Pray!
This is the finished Flint River Collection B+W design. We can’t use Flint River Outfitters because that is a real store in Georgia. Apparently, they too, have a Flint River.
I made, and used, my own type style within this design. I call it “Bob sans serif”.
Very soon, this design will be made available on T-shirts, mugs, calendars, and whatever else CafePress offers. Order now to avoid the rush!
If you were truly paying attention, you would know that this is the image for The Play Game #1. To be fair, this was recently added. It is a caricature of Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Those of you who are fans of Star Trek, The Next Generation will find the following video unbelievably hilarious! All others will deem it stupid.
First draft pencil sketch. I have a picture in my brain but I just need to figure out a way to put it on paper. I will do another sketch.
My good friend Dave says that he likes to see the evolution of my art. Behold! The latest incarnation of the Skribbers Stationery header art! Go here to observe it in the wild.

- The addition of the word STATIONERY
- The addition of the “Frog Pad” page
Several “Interesting Comments” below:
- The dog may be the precursor to Brian of Family Guy.
- “Chromium Brown” may indeed be a pigment of the imagination. Google it.
- My sincere apologies for the poor reproduction quality of The Anonymous comic strips. I am scanning them from a copy, and not from the originals. I don’t know if I still have the originals. If I do, they are probably buried deep in storage.
- I believe this idea was conceived after reading “Lust for Life”, a biographical novel about Vincent Van Gogh.
- Not only is he searching for a non-existent paint color, his dog is talking.
- Not only is his dog talking, but he doesn’t even have a dog.
- Make sure that your studio is well ventilated.
