MEETING DOODLE: Spaz Man and the Incomplete, Backwards-flying Zebra!

January 27, 2015

spaz man zebra SMALL

Yet another doodle that was inspired by a conversation with my kids. The zebra’s flight is propelled by nose jets, but I didn’t properly plan the placement of the doodle on the paper, so- unfortunately- his nostril rockets are not represented here in all their glory. The failure to include them is truly one of the saddest moments in my artistic career.

Inspired by a conversation I had with my son the night before.

DOODLE: Speed Doodling. It’s a full-contact sport.

hello dere SMALLThis doodle was a “brain flusher”. Just a quickie to warm up for the real work of the day. Think it took me about ten minutes, tops, from the time the pen hit the paper to the last watercolor stroke.

DOODLE: Shock and “Aw, dangit!”

wow SMALLI don’t know- nor do I think I WANT to know- what is going on in the upper left of this picture. I just hope it doesn’t effect my afternoon commute.

EXPERIMENTAL DOODLE: Right Hand Man

Right hand man SMALL

A little experiment using my right hand to draw instead of my left. A bit lopsided and clunky, but I was still pretty happy with the result.

MEETING DOODLE: Gettin’ Snazzy

Lest you think I’ve gone all “responsible adult who only posts serious artwork” on you, I present… uhhh… this guy. I don’t know where he’s headed, all dolled up and dapper like that. Maybe a fundraiser charity ball to rescue homeless ferrets trapped on the mean streets of war-torn Wichita, Kansas. Or, possibly, he’s on his way to a live performance of the “1968 Chevy Nova Owner’s Manual as interpreted by three elderly ladies wearing welder’s masks”.

Or maybe just the drive-thru at McDonald’s.

MEETING DOODLE: Compliment my capello!

Like my hat SMALL

 

Other than baseball caps, I’ve never been much of one for hats. So I find it interesting that they seem to feature prominently in so many of my doodles. Some sort of subconscious fedora fixation, I guess.
