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: They’re impatient little cusses sometimes

Apparently I was taking too long to doodle him. I told him he had better lighten up or I was going to erase that scowl right of his face, but he just kept on. As you can see, he won the standoff.

To be honest, I’m a little intimidated by him.

Lest you think all I ever do is doodle (and, granted, I do that A LOT), here are a few samples of my more recent illustration jobs. Sorry for the necessity of a watermark, but you know how dishonest and sneaky people out there in Webland can get.

Not YOU, of course, dear blog visitor… buuuut… other people.

It’s always other people.

Darn them.

More meeting doodles! I would say I don’t find meetings productive, but that would be a lie. I find them VERY productive… just maybe not in the way the person who called the meeting intended.

Meeting doodles are the main reason I will never have a true sketchbook full of my doodles. I don’t take sketchbooks to meetings, so I draw on whatever is handy. This big guy was doodled on the back of our magazine grid for the August 2013 issue of In Touch.

Ah, pudding…

Ah, pudding....

The face came first. Then the body. And I knew, given the facial expression he was making, he had to be deep in thought about something that enthralled him. And what’s more enthralling than pudding?

It’s Official… I’ve warped ’em both!

bad-bathtub

I’m in the middle of giving my three-year-old her bath, talking about how close it is to Christmas Eve. She, of course, is getting VERY excited. They made “reindeer food” at her preschool, and she asked me if we could go sprinkle it in the yard after she gets out of the bath.

“No, sweetheart,” I say to her, “if we put it out now, it’ll get eaten by other animals.”

“Like what?” she asks.

“Well, like squirrels and birds.”

“And bathtubs?”

“Bathtubs? You think the bathtub is going to eat the reindeer food?”

“Uh-huh.”

“Do bathtubs eat anything else besides reindeer food?” I ask, my curiosity piqued.

“No”, she answers, a look of complete seriousness on her face.” But they eat LOTS of it!”
