Scribbles

Doodles from my work notebook, in pen...

When I am not stressed out, I tend to draw with light lines. I don't commit to the lines very much.
Harder, cleaner lines once the stress starts to hit. Plus, a dead cat. At least it's got a halo...
Insanity has set in. Complete babbling in the form of sketches, labeling what is clearly a beaver with "I'm a woodchuck!"
Sometimes, the drawing comes from somewhere else. I drew the leaves first because the way I wrote "Todd" made me think of leaves. Then I drew the koala.
Says "bat" in Korean. I actually don't like this guy. Something about his nose or eyes or something. I might draw a new bat if I remember to at some point.
 Drawing a pawn from the chess set that was on one of our conference tables while I was in a meeting. Obviously boredom.
Shocked sock puppet.
Pelican, because I had a dream about them. Don't like his tail.
Very hard, dark, angry lines. Not a good day, despite the music notes.
Pelicans, one asserting himself over the other. Story of life in production.

These doodles are really super quick, don't judge me too harshly. Mostly in meetings or conference calls, about whatever pops into my silly head.

They are a good gauge of where I am, generally. Sometimes, I draw all static objects- chairs, lamps, pens, etc. Sometimes, like now, it's all about animals. Cute and cuddly or realistic and rabid. Other times, it's people.

I guess it's going well enough right now that I am still drawing cartoony animals. We'll see what I'm drawing a couple months from now...

This post is awesome. When I doodle I just draw creepy looking eyeballs. Always right eyes. Your sketches are actually funny and well done.

Thanks!

I draw random body parts sometimes, usually when I'm not working. Odd how life has a way of interfering with the creative side of the brain.

OH! I really like your doodles! I like to doodle too when I should be studying or working ;) Hope to see more works in the future!
