Jean-Ralphio and Tom.

Parks & Recreation and I had a somewhat rocky beginning, but I believe those early obstacles allowed us to strengthen our relationship to be what it is today. Seriously, I'm a big fan now. I'm totally gonna be Ron Swanson when I grow up. Or Jean-Ralphio. I don't know, there are a lot of factors to consider... Mainly how douchey I become (most signs currently point to Jean-Ralphio).

I oh-so-cleverly used tonight's season premiere as an excuse to draw some Jean-Ralphio and Tom. I don't think Jean-Ralphio does ties, but I liked the way I drew that hand, so I left it.

What's that? You want another drawing of Ben Schwartz? Well, that's a strange thing to request, but I guess I could upload this other sketch I did while watching "Jake & Amir" videos. I know a lot of illustrators have taken to doodling Nick Offerman/Ron Swanson pics -- AND FOR GOOD REASON -- but I submit that Ben Schwartz/Jean-Ralphio is equally fun to draw. I think it's the hair.

Aaand that makes three updates this month with actual new artwork. I'm really determined to keep this blog alive, even when I can't post my professional work. We'll see how long I can maintain this stupid go-getter attitude. "Oh-ho-ho," she laughed knowingly.

"Jean-Ralphio" count: 6


  1. Please keep it up! You have beautiful work. :)

  2. Sound I made when I first saw Tom and Jean-Ralphio in drawing form: Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  3. not sure if you know yet, but ben schwartz has officially reblogged this image on his tumblr, just sayin'!

  4. Have you never seen "Community?" I need something of Abed & Annie (not necessarily you but a character on the show) please.

  5. Lots of great work on your blog, keep it up.

  6. Love this. Tommy Fresh.

    What about Clyde Oberholdt and Doug Guggenheim from "House of Lies?" Oberholdt is the same actor as Jean-Ralphio, and is basically an Ivy League educated version of the same character.

    But I'm sure you knew that already. Thanks for the great work!

  7. can you put this on a white teeshirt so I can wear it everyday forever please and thank you
