Happy Halloween, and Happy Birthday Michael Anderson and Frank Silva!

Also known as the Man From Another Place and Killer Bob. Any fan of Twin Peaks will understand why it's not only creepy that these two share a birthday, but the fact that it happens to fall on Halloween is just downright chilling and bizarre.

On a technical note, I'm really tired of caricatures that use big heads on small bodies and I try to steer away from it whenever possible. I started with Little Mike and liked the way he turned out, but then I had to cram in Killer Bob, and had to resort to the small body hoopla.

While digging around on youtube, I found a clip I had never seen before. The fun part comes in at 1:22.

And here's one of my favorite Bob moments from the show. Very brief, but I always got a kick out of it.

Happy Birthday Dan Castellaneta

The voice of Homer Simpson, Krusty the Clown, Barney Gumble, Groundskeeper Willie, Mayor Quimby and several others turns 52 today.

Happy Birthday Joaquin Phoenix

This was a struggle. I thought he might be relatively easy, but nope, he was not. I could have gone for his new homeless junkie look, but I thought that would be somewhat of a cop-out, burying him in those shades and all that dirty grizzly hair.

Happy Birthday Theodore Roosevelt

And this marks the 300th day of the year, making this birthday drawing #300. Only 65 to go! If you count last year's 366 Elvis drawings (the extra day is for the leap year), this marks 666 straight consecutive days of sketchbook drawings. Hot damn!

Happy Birthday Johnny Carson

This could be better, but I quit. I tried sketching him a few times and lost my patience, so I quit. Time to move on to other things!

Happy Birthday Trey Parker

Co-creator of South Park, but more importantly (in my book), the writer/director of Orgazmo and Team America hits the big 4-0 today.

Happy Birthday Sacha Baron Cohen

Because I didn't draw him as one of his characters, I thought I'd share some of my favorite moments with all 3. These are all very painful but good for a few laughs.

Happy Birthday John Lennon

Had I drawn Paul McCartney back in June, I would have officially drawn all 4 of The Beatles for the first time ever this year. But I didn't plan ahead. For some reason I opted for Roger Ebert instead. Oh well.

Happy Birthday Tony Dungy

This guy mad it impossible for me to hate the Colts, but now that he isn't coaching anymore, down with the Colts! But more importantly, down with Peyton Mannning!
