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.

September Song (Swan Song?)

Here are a few of the hen-scratchings that were hatched at our kitchen table this past month. They're all doodles that were done to entertain my four year old daughter. The mediums used were pencil, water color, colored pencils and discarded copy paper.

Look! Veggie Tales, the whatzis and a genetically weird TeleTubby all on one page. I added the watercolors during one of Mariel's painting sessions.

Mr. Puppy and Mr. Other Puppy are in the lower left corner while Tiger and Kipper discuss taking medicine up top. Mariel had to take 10 days' worth of antibiotics this month, hence the dialog balloons. Bob the Tomato with Larry the Cucumber are shown in the lower right hand corner. Who is that in the center, I wonder..?

Kipper and Tiger discuss an important clue in the search for Black Beard's treasure.

Various character scribbles for the princess. Yes, that's Mister Bubble...

Now here are two from Mariel:

1. Bob the Tomato with "too many eyes!"
