A whimsical little impression from an evening hanging out with friends.
Not the newest thought I know. I was thinking about BigGayDragon visiting an art gallery as a youngster and this popped out.
I’ve taken to drawing little cartoon owls lately when I find my mind wandering; I think the idea came from a nickname I gave my husband a while ago (between his facial hair, the knit hat he was wearing at the time, and the look of concentration on his face, he looked like an angry owl and I couldn’t help laughing at the likeness) and it’s just continued to inspire silliness as time goes on.
Saturday doodles with the kids, just playing around making people look funnier than they really are.
Knights of the Alfalfa Patch
Another group meeting; another silly picture. I started with the eyes and just let the rest of it happen; I ended up with a main character for the silly, completely made-up, story Hamster Tails: Knights of the Alfalfa Patch.
Torr Seal (Remastered)
And here’s the lovable Torr Seal again, this time with some color and a cape.
It’s Torr Seal!
Another product of the weekly group meeting. ‘Torr Seal’ is a brand name of epoxy that can be used in vacuum/high vacuum chambers (Torr is a unit of pressure measure) and I’ve been using it to insulate a magnetic probe. While I was working, I thought of the multiple meanings of the word ‘seal’ and then had the idea to create a super-powered science friend to accompany the Awesome Opossum (http://www.skineart.com/?s=awesome+opossum). This afternoon’s group meeting gave me a chance to indulge my silliness.
After checking the wording of the theme challenge, I ended up with another doodle (from another session at the same conference) that more closely resembles the wording. This one was also drawn on hotel stationary and pasted into the molie later.
Your Basket Might Over Run
I was doodling at a conference and incorrectly remembered the wording of this month’s theme challenge. I figured it was close enough, though, so I’m sharing it anyway. Obviously, done on a piece of hotel stationary and pasted into the molie later on.
