NAPKIN DOODLE: Howdy Doodle Do!

August 10, 2017

Howdy Napkin SMALL

Napkins. Where would we doodlers be without ’em? What did ancient scribblers vent their brain drippings on before napkins were invented? Banana leaves? Random pieces of rock? A small mammal that happened to saunter by at the wrong time?

Maybe that’s what the Lascaux cave paintings really are. Just doodles. The actual, finished masterpieces -painted on a perfectly smooth, stretched deer hide- are lost to time. The were probably photorealistic paintings of Ogg and his clan, posing beside a downed mastodon, every detail rendered with amazing clarity. The cave paintings we are left with are just idle doodles created by the artist while he waited for the hunters to get their hair “just right”.

Phone Call Doodle: Awww, maaaaan!

Not feeling frustrated about anything at the moment, so I don’t know why the heck this poor kid popped out of my head.

 

MEETING DOODLE: Shyster Shaman

I told him ten generations seemed a little excessive, so he called me a racist, homophobic, transphobic, misogynistic, privileged bigot who was infringing upon his safe space, and threatened to sue me.

All it takes is one incorrect letter and- BAM!- St. Patrick’s Day just got creepy.

NAPKIN DOODLE: Leery Luke and the Larcenous Lepidoptera

At first, Ol’ Luke was suspicious of the butterfly that had so quickly and willingly come to rest on his outstretched finger. But then he chided himself for his irrational paranoia, and decided to just take pleasure in the simple things of life.

Three days later, Luke discovered that the butterfly had stolen his identity and wiped out all his bank accounts. It was then that he learned a valuable lesson: Always trust your gut instincts.

And NEVER trust an overly-friendly butterfly.

CONCEPT DOODLE: Grumpy Griffin

Once upon a time, I was approached about creating a kid-friendly version of the mythic griffin to be used as a school’s mascot. Although it never got beyond the early discussion stage, I couldn’t resist whipping out a quick doodle on my own time.

Don’t know that this fella quite qualifies as kid-friendly. Unless by “kid-friendly” you mean he thinks they are delicious.

DOODLES:Mallard Mayhem and a Shnozz

So busy with work these days, the only doodle time I can get in is when I’m either in a non-work related meeting or waiting in my car to pick up my kids. Oh, the humanity!

MEETING DOODLE: Well, at least the frog is happy.

I don’t know why the lady’s so snarly. And you’d think a rooster playing a banjo would be happier than a pig in mud.

Oh well… at least skydiving seems to be a giddy occasion for our little amphibian friend.

PARKING LOT DOODLE: Stumpy

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.

I honestly have absolutely nothing to say about this one.
