PARKING LOT DOODLE: Stumpy

November 14, 2016

This time it’s my son I’m waiting to pick up from track practice. And this guy waddles up to my car.

Okay, maybe he didn’t waddle up to my car… but he DID pace back and forth in my brain while I drew him.

MEETING DOODLE: Work with what you have, and no throwing sardines!

penguin skateboarding SMALL

 

Sorry for the garish paper color, but ya gotta work with what you’re given. Like this penguin, for instance. He wanted me to draw him on a jet ski, but I told him we were fresh out of those and could only put him on a skateboard. I informed him we would have a shipment of jet skis coming in next month, but he was all in a hurry to get doodled so he had to settle for a skateboard. You could tell he wanted to complain about it, but he kept his cool and took it like a man.

Er… I mean, penguin.

At least, that’s how I assume it would look if you “took it like a penguin”. I could be way off base. Taking it like a penguin may actually involve temper tantrums and the hurling of sardines at the source of your disgruntlement. If that’s the case, then he didn’t take it like a penguin, but, in fact, took it like some much calmer bird that is not known for diva-like behavior.

This was done as an “example of technique” sketch for a book that never was. Ballpoint pen on Bristol.

Sometimes there is no meeting.

Sometimes, you just gotta flush your brain of random doodles before you can get to the real work of the day.

lunchbag lion

 

I know I’m a little late to the “lunch bag art” party, but for the past eight years my kids have used lunch boxes. Kind of hard to draw on those. But, last night, I finally got my chance. My daughter is going on a field trip to the zoo today, and they requested that the kids bring there lunches in bags that could be thrown away. So- voila!– lunch bag lion!

Doodlized Sweetness

Envelope doodle_SMILEY

 

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.
