Christoph Waltz sketch

A sketch of the actor Christoph Waltz. I thought I get this up here before the awards were handed out. The character he played is one of the most interesting I've ever seen, and his performance was one of the best I've seen. I was originally going to have him holding "the shoe", if you've seen Inglorious Basterds then you know what I'm talking about. I may still do a version with the shoe.
I guess if he doesn't win the best supporting actor award, this may look silly. But, it's pretty much guaranteed that he'll come away with it.

Dennis Prager

Radio talk show host Dennis Prager. He's been my biggest post-college intellectual influence. He covers a lot of different subjects on his show. I don't agree with everything, but he's always intellectually stimulating. Here are some of his youtube videos :Prager University .

Peyton Manning

A post for the upcoming game. The best quarterback I've seen play. I'm guessing when he's done he'll go down as the best ever, since he's likely to break most of the records. Maybe I'll try to get a Drew Brees image done before the game...we'll see.
