It is indeed a sad day when even a sweet gesture from a friend is not impervious to doodles. This envelope contained some details for a freelance job I did for my friend Anne, and it fell victim to doodlification during my son’s basketball practice.
Meeting doodles are the main reason I will never have a true sketchbook full of my doodles. I don’t take sketchbooks to meetings, so I draw on whatever is handy. This big guy was doodled on the back of our magazine grid for the August 2013 issue of In Touch.
Early on in this blog (almost five years ago, actually), I mentioned my love for the tantalizing fragments of comic books I sometimes encountered as a child. Since that post, and due to the blessing of having a full-time job that keeps me too busy to do more than fragments, I have often found it entertaining to create individual panels or pages that are intentionally teasing but nebulous in their nature and direction, just for the fun little rabbit trails they lead me down.
The above panel being a case in point.
Who is this mysterious “he” who donated the piece of technology? And what is the problem plaguing our heroes? And why will a gyroscopic device help? And do we really want to put our trust in a pig-like being who has no idea what a gyroscope even is???
Your guess is as good as mine.
A little something I whipped up for all of my Crimson Tide-lovin’ friends. They are available here.
