Doodles

There are days where I just do not feel creative in the least. (This is one of those days) On those days, I usually end up filling a page with these funny little doodles. They originally started as greenmen (I can't find any of my old ones), but have since morphed into these squiggly, curlicue-heavy faces. They are all unique, and they all cheer me up a bit.

I have probably drawn a few hundred of these in the last few months, in all sizes and personalities.
I am thinking about mayhaps putting together some card packages (they are my standard gift accompaniments). At this point I am just a little bit curious if anyone would be interested in something like that.
Hopefully more news on that in the future.

I think I need to rip the Tomten. Serves me right for starting to knit before actually getting size measurements of the kid it's for. (speaking of which, what is a reasonable amount of ease for a toddler's jacket?)

The last thing I have tonight is a sketch of a discussion I had with a friend a little while ago.

(It was like there was an elephant in the room, smoking a cigarette and blowing smoke all about. He was wearing a purple leaisure suit, trackerd mud all over, and was humming a song that no-one else knew.)

(and yes, heavily inspired/partly copied from Gerard Hoffnung's 'Hoffnung in Harmony' which I love so much.)

Happy evening peoples!

looks a bit like a character from "Finn Family Moomintroll" - an old family favorite.

you can get away with extra ease for little ones, cuz they always look so cute in oversized stuff.

I love the squiggly faces - and I'd be up for buying cards with these images on them :) - (maybe a set of 6 or 8 with envelopes - printed on matte heavy paper) - I bet Vistaprint could make them for you - just be very careful when ordering to be sure you're asking for what you want.. I have ordered things before and realized when I got them that I had made a boo boo... :) the moral: pay attention! :)
