As often happens I was just doodling about with no real idea what to draw and this is what resulted. I was just seeing how a digital blue pencil sketch would look.

Never one to leave good enough alone, I decided to rework the LEGO car one last time before tearing it apart. I went with a little more complicated gearing to get more top end speed while trying to keep the overall build cleaner then the previous two.
Today we stopped at Romano’s Macaroni Grill for lunch and after raiding the crayon basket the whole family was doodling away on the table. This was just a little pizza guy I did.
I was playing around with the dargster I built the other day and decided to make a bi directional bumper car. The top bumpers are rigged to the switch so it will just bounce back and forth between anything it hits.
We ran to Target real quick tonight and they had the coolest masks in the toy aisle for Captain America, Spider-man, Wolverine, Thor… Our youngest son thought they were cool, but our pre-teen was convinced that if he tried one on, I would take a picture and send it to all his friends. Oh the angst…
Tonight we got the Megamind DVD in the mail for Friday night. I thought I’d doodle up a little baby minion, sans the monkey suit.
Tonight I got the box of Technics out and built a motorized dragster. The front bumper reverses the direction when it hits something, so it somewhat returns to you.
Happy President’s Day! Not much time tonight, or I probably would have re-drawn this one.
I’ve been seeing a few bits and pieces of a new Thundercats show popping up here and there, so I thought I’d doodle a little different version of Panthro.
We took the boys to see Gnomeo and Juliet this afternoon, which was a pretty fun romp full of Shakespearian puns and Elton John tunes. My favorite scene had to be the black sock ninja.
Even once in a while we think of a movie that the boys haven’t seen for a few years and we throw it in the Netflix queue. For our Friday night movie we watched Leroy and Stitch and this is a quick sketch I did of the cute little Leroy.
One of the best games that we’ve bought for our PSPs is Patchwork Heroes. You play a band of people getting dropped off on flying fortresses, and then having to saw them to pieces before they reach your town. It only has 30 levels, but for $10, it was worth it and definitely has replay value.
This morning, I decided to run the 5k trail around the golf course, which was littered with tree limbs and ice patches from all the snow we’ve been having. At least the constant attention to not falling over made the run go faster.
Tonight the wife and I headed to the game closet to ffind something to play and decided on Rumikub. It’s really an insanely fun game, though I have a tendency to take forever on a turn, and some of my more complicated moves end up not working.
