RAINY DAY DOODLE: Strange Herbivore

October 9, 2017

strange herbivore

It was a rainy, do-nothing Sunday afternoon, so a random unclassified herbivore bounded out of my brain. Sorry for the poor quality of the image; it was a quick phone shot.

RANDOM NON-DOODLE: Captain DandyHat!

September 8, 2017

CaptainDandyHat_SMALL

Although he had the desire and (most definitely) the wardrobe needed to be a successful superhero, Captain DandyHat (aka Chester Wiggums) was hampered by the glaring fact that his only discernible superpowers were his uncanny knack for remembering old 1950s advertising jingles, and his ability to drink an entire 48 ounce Slushee™ in seven seconds without experiencing brain freeze. Thus, his crimefighting career was rather short and uneventful.

I wish I got as much exercise as the doodles running around in my brain do.

NAPKIN DOODLE: Howdy Doodle Do!

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

TIKI lawyer_SMALL

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

January 10, 2017

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!
