More Great TV News: New Episodes of “Mock the Week”

If you’ve been playing the home game of “How Many UK Television Shows Does Roz Watch Anyway?” you’ll be pleased to know that one of my favorite shows has new episodes out in the US. (BritBox) “Mock the Week” is back in a covid manifestation with perspex partitions between the comics and a Zoom audience. […]

Working with Analogous Colors

Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something. (Stephen Fry hosted for a number of seasons and […]

Things Our Journals Tell Us

If you look at my journal from January and February 2020 you learn a lot about me.  You learn that I like to use my lunch break to watch a little bit of TV and sketch. You’ll learn that I became fascinated with the young James Corden in “Gaven & Stacey.” You’ll also learn that […]

Hairdos on Television

Don’t get me started. Hairdos on television. So many, so little time. Here’s a sketch of one of my favorite young actors, Marcus Scribner, who plays “Junior” on “Black-ish.” Through the seasons he’s had different hairstyles. His headgear obscures much of the hairdo here, but I was struck by the small dreads just appearing over […]

Draw the Same Person Over and Over, Especially if He Makes You Laugh

I’ve been thinking a lot about humor lately, and the need for it in daily life.  I try to get as much humor in my life as possible. Sometimes the only way it is possible is to find it on TV. Everyone knows I love improv. I watch and rewatch episodes of “Whose Line Is […]

Things to Do in the Current Pandemic: Get a New Eyeball

In an episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (available on Netflix) he interviews comedians as he spends time with them doing just that, getting coffee. (There are some side trips too.) I had to pull some examples for a class I was teaching and I re-read this journal page from 2018. (It’s […]

Icelandic actor Porsteinn Gunnarsson as Eiríkur in "Trapped." Pentel Brush pen, watercolors, and acrylic marker.

Even More Television Viewing

Yep, a couple more TV show reviews today. I’ve been trying to keep track of what I’ve written about already.  Earlier this fall I watched “Trapped” on Amazon Prime. The action takes place in a remote Icelandic town. A headless torso shows up just as a storm blocks the town from outside help. The police […]

Actor Brad William Henke in his role as the vicious prison guard in "Orange is the New Black." 9 x 12 inch Fabriano Venezia journal. Sepia Pentel Color Brush and water to dilute ink.

More Television Viewing in October

While under the weather in October I used my couch time productively to binge watch the remaining episodes of the Netflix Comedy-Drama “Orange is the New Black.” I’ve enjoyed the show since it first came out. Set in a women’s prison the show has a strong cast of female leads and over the first five […]

A sketch of Martin, the star of "Downward Dog" television series. Pencil, pen, and watercolor on Stonehenge.

Martin: A Dog’s Eye View

I was disappointed to learn that ABC’s “Downward Dog,” was cancelled.  Huge mistake. This was a gem of a show if ever there was one. The show follows the life of the dog Martin as he talks (to the camera and in voiceover) about his life, his philosophy, and  the way his world revolves around […]
