We got some more snow this weekend, so the boys and I were hitting the hills after we got home from church. I was trying to do something in color, but just couldn’t get it to look the way I imagined it. I think I’ll stick to coloring on the computer.

Tonight the boys were both exhausted from lots of sledding and walking, so the wife and I had a chance to watch a movie. We ended up watching Paper Heart with Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera. It was simple and a cute movie.
The boys, and lots of grown men around the planet, were really excited that the Star Wars episode tonight featured the Mandalorians. During one scene the had the mural on the wall that inspired this doodle. It’s not really based on anything other then the helmet shape.
If I was a hulking robot, I would still probably be on the floor playing with blocks.
I thought I would try to do something that looked kind of paper cut-outish?
I was playing around with my new pens and my colored mechanical pencil lead today. I’ve got to say, I’m loving the lead! This first doodle I drew while standing in a hallway with the Micron brush pen so my lines are a little rough.
The monkey i used the same brush pen, but was able to sit down so it came out a little better.
The b-boy, I got no idea where he came from. Same pencil but using the Micron 01 and 08.
I couldn’t think of anything today, so it gave me a chance to finally get around to this request. They wanted Disney’s Robin Hood, Talespin’s Rebecca Cunningham, and Bert the Racoon as kids. The wooing thing was my idea, but I think it came out decent. I inked this with my new Micron Pens I ordered from DickBlick.com. Here’s a picture of the rest of my loot that just got delivered today.
This is what happens when I start randomly scratching out something in pen. My oldest son and I went to the store on our way home from church to get a couple groceries, which required a stroll through the toy aisle. I saw this cool Venom action figure, so that’s probably where this doodle came from.
Today my wife made this silly statement to the effect of “You should go outside with the boys and make another fort.” Well, that sure did it. After picking a group of trees about 15-20 feet from the existing fort (3 walls, vine roof, and swing) I set to work making more of a two wall firing position. One of those two walls is about 12-15 feet which had me going pretty far into the woods to find felled trees long enough to span it. I got most of it done, but wouldn’t mind adding another log or two on each side. I’ll have to take a picture when it’s all done and tied together.
At least when the boys play now it won’t be those protected by the fort against those out in the open.
Tonight’s Star Wars episode was about Ahsoka losing her lightsaber and seemed rife with chances for her to get it back rather simply using the force, but then what would the do for the other 18 minutes of the episode?
This doodle is really just a lame excuse/preface to put up this silly picture I took. I put General Grievous’ head from the original Clone Wars cartoons character on Yoda’s body. It was almost a perfect fit!
I had to do a bunch of Mighty Muggs for the office tonight and I thought I would do my own since I’ll be switching offices soon.
I thought up this turtle and had to doodle it. I originally did it on paper, but I botched the head twice so I figured I would fix it in inkscape.
I saw an e-mail asking for mascot/motto ideas for a defcon type exercise and I thought “Cyber Squirrels” would be funny. “all you nuts are belong to us” is funny, but may be a little inappropriate?
One of the drawbacks to renting movies through RedBox is they never seem to get the DC cartoons. Green Lantern: First Flight was on the Cartoon Network this weekend, so I finally had a chance to sit down and watch it tonight. This is a horrible doodle in so many ways…
