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”.

Chicken Duck Feet DETAIL

An illustration for a digital article to be published in September on the In Touch Ministries site.

It’s a bird with the head of a chicken, and the body of a duck. Wearing a bow tie.

Sometimes, I still can’t believe I get to do this for a living, folks. I am truly blessed.

NAPKIN DOODLE: Leery Luke and the Larcenous Lepidoptera

January 10, 2017

leery-luke-small

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.
