Mr R Friday Special - Amanda Nunes

Ronda's last UFC fight tonight?
Love Dominick, but gotta root for Ohio's Cody G (always a homer, lol).

Stephen Thompson pencil

Missed the epic brawl with Woodley due to being in Vegas. Yes, that's right. In Vegas, it's nearly impossible to find a bar where one can watch a UFC ppv card.

Mr R Monday Special: Karolina Kowalkiewicz

You may think it took so freakin' long to post because I sweat and struggled to spell Karolina's name correctly or broke untold innocent #2's in graphic battle with the normal straight line drawing challenges (look at that floor, yikes!). In reality, the scanner self destructed. The good (bad?) news:  bought new one and have major scrawl backlog to post. 

Happy holidays!

Mr R Monday Special: Krysten Ritter Jessica Jones

Sometimes the pencil seems to know what it's doing. It's quite 
a fleeting sensation, like the belief the Browns might win a game. Cheers!

Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman pencil

In case you're wondering, there's no secret code on the shield symbols. As you know, I'm not sophisticated enough to think of one or to use a protractor to draw a curve that makes sense in a two-dimensional world. Cheers!

Michael Bisping pencil

Dern it, Clev fans we lost. But it was a fantastic, unexpected playoff run and excellent, super-competitive World Series. Game 7's momentum shifts were nothing short of cardiac-arrest thrilling, producing the most exciting baseball game I've ever seen. Congrats Cubs and Chicago fans, you earned it.

Mr R Tuesday Special - Sophia Bush

Dig the Passion Pit Carried Away video - super fun with words. Let's hope that Clev can complete the double championship dip tonight. Go Tribe!!!!

Mr R Monday Special Natalie Portman Black Swan

Top scrawled in 2009. Bottom scribbled last week.
Once you learn a few drawing techniques, it's all practice and that's all it is.

Eddie Alvarez pencil

Never expected Alvarez to unleash a brutal beat down on Dos Anjos, which is one reason why MMA is such a great sport. Best strategy against McGregor would seem to be an endless parade of takedowns. We'll see what happens.

Mr R Monday Special Jhenny Andre

Two amazing things from Saturday's UFC card:  Henderson still smashing
people at 46 and Bisping, at 37, somehow survived the smashing.

Demian Maia pencil

Maia's impressive win over Condit ought to earn the old guy a 170 title shot. C'mon, Uncle Dana, make it happen before he turns 40!

Anthony Johnson pencil

Johnson is the scariest nice dude in the UFC. If his dynamite fists can connect cleanly with Cormier's chin, he's the new champ.

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Nate Diaz pencil

Saturday's UFC main card was insanely entertaining from top to bottom. In the incredible, back-and-forth main event, mr loser's scorecard had rounds 1,4 for McGregor and round 3 for Diaz. Hard-fought rounds 2 and 5 could have gone to either guy - forced to judge I'd give 2 to McGregor and 5 to Diaz.

Mr R Monday Special, Winona Ryder, Stranger Things

NetFlix's Stranger Things is a super fun, horror-SF, retro 80s mind bender. Took me a couple episodes to adjust to 90s hipster chic Ryder as 44 year old mom.

Mike Pyle pencil drawing

Rough outing for Pyle in last month's brawl. He turns 41 in September and is still a competitive, entertaining fighter - amazing.

Cody Garbrandt pencil. Go Ohio!

Expect pugilistic fireworks when the pride of Uhrichville battles Mizugaki.
It's no love for Japan on 8-20. Go Ohio!

Mr R Monday Special - Harley Quinn

Haven't seen the flick (still need to see Dawn of Justice, alas). While I'm unloading my comic-book sins, it's time to confess I'm stalled on Gotham, stuck on Daredevil episode 3 and haven't even glanced at Arrow or Flash.
Jeez, what a loser I be. Cheers!

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

Robbie Lawler pencil

Yet another championship fight surprise Saturday when Woody's thudding overhand right blasted Lawler into dreamland. Wanted to see Lawler vs. Wonderboy - oh well. Uncle Dana needs to give Thompson the next title shot.

Mr R Monday Arianny Celeste

Some great fights, and surprising outcomes, Saturday night. 
Still working on foliage. Enjoy your week! Cheers!

Mr R Thursday Special - Scarlet Witch

Today's Mr. R. special features a double dose of Elizabeth Olsen. Will Marvel-Disney unleash the House of M to destroy all the 20th Century Fox mutants?

Crazy NBA finals thus far. I'd like to get excited about the Cavs' chances, but I've been a Cleveland fan for far too long, lol. Go Cavs!

Mr R Sunday Special - Natalie Dormer

Either way behind or a day ahead with this, as always, ruler averse, Mr. R special (let's go with a day ahead). Game of Thrones was blazing fantastic last Sunday. Let's hope for more dragon fire tonight.

Monday cartoon - Civil War

Saw the movie this weekend, great, super entertaining flick.
Russo bros even worked in a scene set in Cleveland.

Mr R Friday Special - Black Widow

Whose side am I on? Are you kidding? Black Widow's, of course.
Bring on her solo movie, Marvel-Disney.

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Diaz-McGregor pencil

Nausea-inducing background created by hand-drawn then overlay
of ruler-based cage fence, not any "artistic" plan. Cheers!

Mr R Special - Dancing with the Stars

Everyone knows that when Mr R isn't reffing local cage brawls, he's
watching Paige Vanzant on Dancing with the Stars.
