Yellow Pad Doodles


I actually like sketching on newsprint doodle pads most but I ran out a few days ago so reverted to lined yellow pads.
 
You know I tried looking all over for writing pads that don't have lines on them but they are really hard to find. They used to be quite common but seem to have gone almost extinct.

Cardboard Doodles

I like to draw on the backs of writing and doodle pads. The rough texture gives me a little thrill. It makes me feel like I am a part of nature - like I am drawing on whole wheat.

 

By the way I sometimes use these cardboard sketches as envelope stiffeners for the drawings people order at my store.


You might find one included in a mystery pack or in the marker sketch envelopes.

Not always, but whenever I have some handy - which I do right now.

Random Doodles

 
I've been in a bit of a creative slump since being cooped up by the coronavirus lock down so I took a few days off from sketching.

I just picked up again yesterday. Here are some doodles I drew while watching Fareed and eating bacon this morning:


I hope you are all safe and sound. 
There might be more recent drawings on my Instagram and/or Facebook pages.

Cave Folk and their fashions

So I guess the Flintstones, B.C., Alley Oop and other classic cartoon caveman characters lived during the Mesozoic since they cavorted with dinosaurs.


It makes me wonder how they wore furs - being that large mammals hadn't evolved yet.
They'd have to sew together 20 shrew-sized proto-mammals to get one decent suit out of it.
 
Thinking like an executive, would it be more logical that they'd be wearing reptile skins with scales and maybe feathers instead of fur? 
Like this guy on the right?
Of course we won't question why we humans who are large mammals ourselves managed to be running around in the Mesozoic - we can just chalk it up to God dumping us there to test us.
More tomorrow...
