Not a Rerun I Hope

Just realized that the last post was probably a rerun. Old sketch from an old notepad. This one is vintage too, but I think this the first time through the mill.

A Fistful of Attitude

Thumb leadership issues...

Broomstick-head Man

A fellow of very narrow intellectual interests.

Another Oldie

Found this one in an old scratchpad. Looks like I drew this with those kid markers that can change colors. Grumpy cat character doesn't look like he's going to change his expression.

Big Day Yesterday

Brand new granddaughter. Only seen two picture yet. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. And she's got this great little yellow hat.

Eleven Characters, Four Pens

Daylong doodle. Draw a face, wander off, do some work, come back, look for pen, can't find pen, get another pen, draw another face.

On the Contrary

Today's doodle to the contrary, I'm feeling just fine.

Found this one in an old notebook. Must be 8 or 10 years old. So I don't remember what I was thinking about at the time, but I'm pretty sure I thought this lady was a little tense. I choose to believe that's her neck on the bottom there and not some stringy Mandarin type beard.

He may be the easiest president to draw since Teddy Roosevelt.

Going for a Stroll

With the way the weather was last week, walking outdoors was kinda out of the question. For me anyway. The trick was talking my beautiful wife into taking our daily constitutional indoors rather than in our sub zero neighborhood. This was not a real tough sell, but we both had to contend with the stigma of being 'Mall Walkers' which, I guess, is just one notch away from Matlock and Metamucil.

Little with Great Big Honkin' Ears

The nose isn't exactly tiny either.

Man, the Temp is Above Zero!

After 90 hours of sub zero weather (and that's air temp - we're not talkin' windchill factor here) we have a toasty 15 degrees in the sun and I'm outta here! Will try to spend a bit of the weekend outdoors, do something physical. Not that trying to find a lost DVD remote isn't a little physical...

My wife says in any given food selection process, I will usually lean to the sugar-coated-batter-dipped-chocolate-filled-deep-fried-MSG-injected-Wonder-bread side of things. I'm not sure I totally agree. I mean, that MAY be my default setting, but I've been known to show restraint, to make healthy choices and all that crap. Even when no one's looking. Makes me hungry just talking about this stuff. Might grab an apple. And I wonder if there are any of those malted milk balls left.

Running a Little Behind

That's my shoe. Not much of a doodle, but I've been swamped at work again and I'll take my inspiration where I can find it.

Damn Cold

This is a picture of a TV weatherman pounding a nail into a board with a banana. That's what they do here in Minnesota when you have many days of sub zero temps. They also whip pots of boiling water up and down to make everything turn into instant steam. And frozen t-shirts! They always seem to have a shirt laying around stiff as a board. We are in the middle of one hundred hours of below zero weather, which is a little unusual, but I've lived in Duluth for over 30 years and all that time I've owned a television. Apparently there are no new tricks.

These Guys

Sorry. This is about all I can doodle while I'm watching a brand new TV at the same time.

Just Like in the Movies

This is an authentic fountain pen squirt. You know, like in old Laurel and Hardy two reelers when some one pulls off the lid of a fountain and it shoots ink all over the place? Well, I'm here to tellya, THAT STUFF REALLY HAPPENS! And I'm only showing you the one blot because that's the one that landed on this piece of paper. Most of the rest ended up on the table and my hands.

End of day, navigating home.

Garbage Day

Turns out 2009 still has garbage days. Like tomorrow. Some things are still predictable. No more job security, no more retirement fund, no more United States presidents with names only ending in consonants... but we still have a garbage day every week.

Last Christmas Party of the Season

A good one too. And it only took us half an hour to shovel our driveway clean enough so we could get the car off the street after we came home. At one AM.

Clappa Yo Hands for 2009

New Year Resolutions

Will blog everyday. Will not take five day 'vacations'. Will treat my new scanner respectfully, and remember that old adage that it is the poor worker who blames his tools (although I finally got rid of that piece-of-crap ol' scanner-printer-copier. Wottahunkojunk!)
