Okay, so here’s the basic conversation I had with myself during this doodle:
“Hmm…looks like I decided to draw a salamander head….”
“I think he needs a hat. A beanie?
“Nah….how ’bout a jester’s hat?’
“Oooooh, no…wait…I got it…a cowboy hat!”
“Why would a salamander be wearing a cowboy hat?”
“Well, DUH! Because he’s a rodeo salamander, of course!”
“Better draw him ridin’ something, then.”
“Like a porcupine?”
“Ouch! No, keep it basic…a horse or a bull.”
“Okay, but that bull better be a tiny one, I’m running out of room on the paper.”
“Sure thing. How’s that look?”
“Looks more like a heifer than a bull.”
“Everyone’s a critic. Okay, then, dang it…I’ll give it an udder…Ta-da! it’s a heifer. You happy?”
“I’m lapsing into a bliss-induced coma even as we speak.”
This concludes our tour through my thought processes. Please be sure and wipe your feet as you exit the building.
