Cartoon Steve tries to stay warm on a winter snow day in the latest artwork from Steve’s Sketchbook. Winter Cartoon Steve is hardly recognizable here. He does (as of the time of this writing) also appear in winter garb in the header graphic up above. But because of the winter cold in this view he has pulled his cap down lower and added earmuffs and mittens, too. A guy has to do what he can to keep warm, after all.
Walking along a shore in Hawaiʻi - the latest artwork from Steve’s Sketchbook. You may remember that Laura and I visited the island of Kauaʻi in Hawaiʻi for our 25th wedding anniversary a few years ago. That trip made quite an impression on me because the landscapes there were very different from what we have here at home. On that Hawaiʻi trip, I took lots and lots of photos, as you might guess.
Merry Christmas! A jolly tiki out in the snow wishes you a Merry Christmas as the newest member of the Tiki of the Month Club from Steve’s Sketchbook. Usually, you would find a tiki somewhere warm, such as at the beach on a tropical island. But just maybe there could be a tiki at the North Pole, too. Santa Claus strikes me as being an eclectic decorator, after all. So why would he not have a tiki somewhere near his workshop?
A Thankful Tiki brings a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. He is the newest member of the Tiki of the Month Club from Steve’s Sketchbook, by the way. This Tiki would love to be included in your Thanksgiving dinner plans. He is always looking for more friends to spend time with. And hopefully, that is a real turkey and not something made out of wood like he is. Of course, that raises the question of how he cooked it without setting himself on fire.
Ooooooooo! A Werewolf brings you a joke for Halloween, or maybe Howl-O-Ween, in this latest artwork from Steve’s Sketchbook. So maybe the Werewolf does not have the best jokes. But I am not going to tell him. How about you? Do Werewolves even eat lunch, or are they only out at night? Maybe I should have researched that just a bit more before using this joke. But factual or not, I still think it is funny.
Happy Halloween! A tiki with a pumpkin-shaped head sits in a field on a starry night in the fall as Halloween approaches. This is the latest Tiki of the Month from Steve’s Sketchbook. Yes, Tiki of the Month is definitely a thing now. Our tiki friend is just waiting for some trick-or-treaters to come and pay him a visit. Of course, you can tell by his smile that he is a friendly tiki, so he only gives out treats, of course.
Happy Tiki Fall A fall tiki for September enjoys a sunset in the latest artwork from Steve’s Sketchbook. If you are keeping score, yes, I just posted a new tiki last month. And now, here is another tiki for this month. Is this signaling the start of the Tiki of the Month Club? Maybe so! While last month’s tiki definitely had a summer feel to him, I wanted this one to be just a little more about fall.
The first day of Fall has arrived! Here’s hoping you have a great season ahead of you. Season changes are special. After all, they only happen four times a year. Of course, some people start celebrating fall at the first of September, but that is not when the actual Autumnal Equinox occurs. At least, that is what the astronomers and meteorologists tell us. I have no way of knowing, so I am taking their word that it is actually today.
Time for a Change. Again. They say that the only constant is change. One example of that is the ever-changing Burnsland website graphics theme, which, of course, has changed once again. Just in case you are reading this after yet another change, here is the current (as of this writing) Burnsland header graphic: For comparison, see some of the past versions of the previous graphic here and here. If you have not guessed yet, the biggest change was replacing Mobius the Goat with Cartoon Steve.
He’s a Happy Tiki A smiling tiki sits on the beach near the waves in this latest artwork from Steve’s Sketchbook. This tiki guy looks happy to be on the beach. And why shouldn’t he? I would be happy to be on the beach, too. What’s not to be happy about? Of course, the previous tiki was not all that happy to be on the beach. But that is his problem and not this guy’s problem.
