an ogre made from chili powder

This is something I started doing at restaurants while waiting for the food to come. Just shake some pepper on a plate, and get to work! I think it was my wife's idea to keep our daughter occupied.

Django Reinhardt made from salt

sketch of a clown named Pinky

Here's a portrait of a random clown I found online named "Pinky". I used to draw a lot of clowns when I was a kid. Yeah, I was creepy.
