Some doodles from my sketchbook.
I am fortunate to have some talented, great friends who let me stay with them when I'm in Brooklyn. Their son (sketched above) is a terrific kid. He's very inclusive. He shows me all of his toys.
I had never heard of the Bakugan Battle Brawlers, which are hard plastic balls that *SPROING* into little creatures when you push them against a bit of metal, like a fridge door.
Below: he explains their operation to me and which one is his favorite (there are many kinds of balls that turn into a variety of creatures).
Above: the horned Pyrus Dragonoid. Nix's Mixed Bag has photos.
