The Man from E.G.G.

A place to put my time-wasting doodles, based upon the exercises outlined in the "How To Draw Animated Cartoons" book by Preston Blair.

The Return of Father-Daughter Doodles

Oh yes, there has still been father-daughter doodling! We've been dabbling in many media: pencil, crayon, paints and even construction paper as you shall soon be seeing.

In the mean time, here are a couple of Mariel's cartoon character creations.

Technically, this is a mother-daughter doodle. Mariel drew this character and dubbed it "Fibber."

I'm not sure who this is. I'm hoping its Larry the Cucumber (From VeggieTales) rather than Mr. Hankey (South Park) but it couldgo either way, depending on how you color it in.

Next? Spunkies!

New PC & New Scanner!

Wow! Has it really been over six months since I posted anything here?

Well, I finally set up the printer/scanner with the emachines computer my Dad gave us two months ago.

The first father-daughter doodle I scanned is a team effort. It depicts Daddy's frustration at finding out the Dazzle USB A/V Port will not work with Windows Vista.

Now that I know I can scan stuff, I'll try to put more things here on a more regular basis.

Just be forewarned. My "serious" attempts at following the Preston Blair book have long since ended. All you will find here is random junk that may very well be a bigger than ever waste of your time.

Just wanted you to know...
