Some Sketchbook Pages

Here's a mish-mosh (where did that phrase come from btw? just kidding)...of heads I drew at a charity poker tournament before the holidays, some quick sketches in Hawaii when I went back home for a visit a few weeks ago, random people at airports, and people I invented.
Oh, and polar bears.

"Good stuff, Maynard"

So I said that today, without thinking, because I don't think I'd heard anyone say that in oh, 10 years or so and I don't know how or why it would've slipped from my mouth, because I don't know anyone named Maynard, and I was in fact talking to my friend Tony about this unbelievable Strawberry and Lime chewing gum I had and I looked at him in shock and thought, "Wow, I wonder where that saying came from."
Well, hold on to your britches, because you (all 2 of you that read this) will be very happy to know that it came from a commercial in the 80's, where a father gets his kid to eat his food by telling his kid's imaginary friend, "Good stuff, Maynard."
And there you have it. Has your day improved? Mine has, because it was something that would've killed me had it not been for the wonder that is google.
I wonder where "hold on to your britches" came from.

Nature of Water Show

-An Art Exhibition Inspired by the Philosophies of Bruce Lee- Opening Night this Sat, Jan 5 at Nucleus in Alhambra. I'll have two pieces up, and hopefully if I'm not still sick as a dog I can make it out. (Drinking my green tea like crazy!) It should prove to be a great first show of 2008 for Nucleus.
Oh, and since I've been such a bad poster lately, Happy Belated New Year!!
Now back to my pillow...and Labyrinth....oh yeah.

UPDATE: Here are my pieces from the show (sorry they're not that large):
