The Doodles (You Caught Me!)

Drawing has always been a nervous habit for me.  My dad got called to school when I was in the fifth grade to discuss this compulsion and its "interruption of my learning" even though I had practically straight A's.  The problem as they saw it was that I am scatter-brained and have to channel the voices so to speak.  Teacher thinks I don't listen because I doodle and draw.  My notebooks in school would contain illustrations and scribbles throughout.  I would often turn in my homework and worksheets with things sketched all over them.  If there is paper around and my hands aren't occupied, art happens... I've been known to make good use of scrap cardboard from the backing of notepads and such!

Here is something I brought home from last week...
ball point pen and dry erase markers on chipboard backing from a scratch pad of paper (5in x 3in)


When I first started the job a few years back, I had a habit of drawing on spare sticky notes.  Usually these scribblings are incorporated into my notes and often discarded.  I did have a little stack of the stickies going though and what resulted was this work from my solo exhibit, "Scraps & Motives" at Cafe Coco in 2008...

Several months back, we were out of town in a hotel and I put down a couple of doodles which we gave to my wife's friend.  To my surprise, she scanned them and used one as the image on her new debit card!

  1. WOW! These are great!

    I really like your style, it's slick. I especially the big eyes and teeth, it's something I like drawing too.
