Pluck the Day: 11-22-2015

Thanks for checking out Pluck the Day! A challenge to myself to post an original drawing/sketch/cartoon at least 5 days a week.


It has been a busy weekend. It all started with an amazing concert at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland.  This is the first time I have been there and I want all of the future concerts I go to be at this venue.  We saw Jennifer Nettles and it was awesome, as always.  My wife and I have probably seen JenNets (as my 3 year old daughter calls her), either solo or with Sugarland, over a dozen times.  She now tops our list of most seen artist, with Billie Joel and Bon Jovi sitting second and third.  As I sat down this weekend and worked on some panels for the next installment of The Cliché Detective, I decided to try my hand at drawing what I remembered most from the show the other night.  I used PowerPoint to spruce it up a little bit but by no means does this drawing capture the talent and beauty of Ms. Nettles.  For that, you can check out some of these pics from that night.

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
