A Bit of Doodling

Not Quite So Helpless

I know I said I was helpless without my right hand but I think that might have been an exaggeration ;o) I can recall one instance where I actually used my left hand. It was back when I lived in Hawaii. I was given an assignment to create a gesture drawing using my left hand, this is what I came up with (I'm still rather proud of this sketch):
Obviously, it was used to advertise for our art exhibition.

hopelessly right handed

I am hopelessly right handed...i think i have a left hand just so i will look symmetrical. Today, i was drawing the above sketch (using my right hand) and I baked some bread while I was waiting for the ink to dry (okay so it was also probably a little bit of procrastination...I was making myself draw today even though I wasn't really in the mood) anyway while i was baking I got a small second degree burn on my right hand. I'm a mess when it comes to using my left I think I'll wait 'till I can use my right hand again before I try to color this sketch.

Saltillo, Mexio

This is based on a drawing I did back in 2002 when I was visiting Saltillo, Mexico.

Doodle By My Dad

In my whole life I have never seen my Dad doodle or draw...the closest he comes to doodling is drawing hearts and smiley faces on all cards he sends my Mom. So imagine my shock today when I find a doodle sitting next to the computer. I am so proud, I think I'm going to put it up on the fridge.

Steampunk Parkour

"Remarkable mix: oil, brains, and courage."

This daring robot, Ralph, is a little rebel. The ancient machinery just can't understand him. But he was wired to be this way, his creator is the champion of the tenth international super sonic skateboard competition. Ralph was made to be a test dummy for his creator. Ralph tries out really dangerous maneuvers in the hopes that he might be able to work out the kinks before his creator gets their brains bashed in trying it for themself. Ralph is powered by two you know, two heads are better than one...the robot's inventor chose to use his sister's brain (there is a brainless girl on the loose somewhere) and a yak brain. So while Ralph is a test dummy by day, he spends his nights unwinding with parkour ( An athletic discipline where practitioners, known as Traceurs, traverse any environment in the most efficient way possible using their physical abilities, Parkour commonly involves running, jumping, vaulting, rolling, etc.)
