Friday Doodles

Keeping awake in a town hall meeting 😬

Good weekend, all!

Starting Fresh

There’s something about using a pen for the first time … the feel of holding a new pen … the smell of fresh ink … the first stroke of the pen and the solid line it makes … Whenever I start to use a new pen, I have to start a fresh page … of something, anything.

The never-ending ink pen finally ran out of ink, and here’s the replacement.  The same pen, brand new, with fresh ink.

So I plotted out a new drawing … it was supposed to be a mandala, but the compass kept shifting on me.  I need to look for a good compass, one that doesn’t start folding on me as I draw the circles.  I’m leaving it as it is … the filled-in designs might turn out to be interesting.

But because I really wanted to start using the pen now!  🙂 I doodled a bit.

Hmmm … I think I like this doodles better than the one just drawn …

Happy Wednesday !

 

 

Checking Out Designs

So … it must be a rite of passage that sometime, sooner or later, boys (and gals) will think about getting tattoos .  hmmmm …

Not a fan of tattoos, myself.  The art of the tattoos, yes.  The body canvas … not so much.

Talk about it comes up once in a while … ‘Right, Mom?  We’re going to get tattoos?’ … and they’ll get an eye-roll in return from me.

So as we were walking up and down the Hollywood sidewalk – we literally walked about three miles that night – from the parking lot about a mile down, to the center and beyond, and back again … whew … yes, well, this sidewalk stall caught Tin’s eye, and he stopped to flip through their binder.

These were the brush-on ones, similar to those he’s had from time to time when he was younger.

I told him that I could probably doodle some designs and I have a drawing book for him to look through and consider.

I got an eye-roll from him … lol

 

 

 

4:02 pm

4:02 pm … The exact minute when fall arrives this year … Already ??

Each year, it seems that fall arrives earlier and earlier.  Or maybe it’s because I feel like I haven’t had enough of summer and hot sun yet.  But the days march on, and then it’s fall.

Ok … so maybe this year we get an extra week of summer.  The weather forecast says that it’s going to be in the high 80’s F this weekend.  I’ll take it.

But for now, I’m a little stressed … So I’ve picked up pen and paper to set my mind in order.

And of course, I get another idea while in the middle of something …

But that’s good stress, right?  That your brain is buzzing with indecisions while being creative, right?  I don’t know … I’m going back to doodling.

Have a good weekend, all !

Never Ending Ink

I could feel the ink running dry … the ink was not as dark, and lines were starting to skip across the page, as I drew.

So I decided to just make quick doodles until the ink ran out …

I started with this, a couple of weeks ago …

And would you believe that the ink has still not run out ?!?


So I start a little shading and going over the lines …

And I start another one … and the ink is still going …

Wow … I better look for this same pen and get some more!

‘Late Nights’ Done

I’m done with the late night doodles …

I wanted to do a bit more with the middle part, but no ideas were coming to mind.  So apart from a little more shading here and there,  I’ll call this done !

I’m getting closer to what I think of as a mandala.  Maybe the next one …

Oh, and Happy May 1st!

Murder and Round and Round

Round and round we go … What I’m doing with this, I don’t know.  But I’ll keep on going. Eventually something comes out of the meandering scribbles …

I should plan on making one big, elaborate mandala one day … soon …

And Real Fact #1407 is about crows and murder.  No, I haven’t googled all the Real Facts yet.  I think I like finding out about facts when I open the bottle.  Or maybe I should print out a list and strike off what I’ve come across … hmm … Ok, I’m going to google Real Facts now.

 

Good and safe weekend, all.
