Yesterday I was perusing BoingBoing and happened across a post about the 700 Mole-Men Project.  Now, things have been pretty busy for me at work, but as soon as I got home I sat down at my wobbly drafting table and whipped up a couple of drawings.  Maybe it was my frame of mind, but this excited my creativity a lot more than the 700 Hoboes project.  Doing anything fast simply isn’t in my nature, so I was surprised that I completed these two:
