DOODLE: This Ain’t Your Mickey Mouse Mouse King

I was sitting in my car, waiting to pick up my daughter from rehearsal where her ballet company is preparing to present their annual performances of “The Nutcracker”. (They do an incredible, professional-level job of it- massive sets; beautiful, intricately-crafted costumes; and incredibly talented dancers.)

So, naturally, with some minutes to kill, I begin doodling. I doodled the Mouse King. A homicidal, rage-fueled maniac of a Mouse King.

I realize now why they’ve never asked me to design the costumes for their production.

CONCEPT DOODLE: Grumpy Griffin

December 7, 2016

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.

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.

Apparently, the coffee shop in my brain serves up steaming hot cups of “Yuck!”.

When the family pet starts¬†questioning your wardrobe choices, it’s time to re-evaluate your sense of fashion.
