Being a new home owner, I feel the need to cut and affix and renovate and fabricate things, so I went out a bought me a circular saw. Mostly to build some storage into the garage. 3 minute doodle.

I had lunch today at this hole-in-the-wall Greek place with a mean gyro. Delicious!!!
We made a run to the store tonight and I found these cute new Iron Man Mini Muggs. I have a bunch of the regular sized Mighty Muggs and always wanted the Comic Con Iron Man version, so these are perfect. 4 minute doodle tonight with a little time to spare.
Note the digital friendly doodle number for Mr. Stark…
Another comic book bucket head, this time Marvel’s Nova. If only I had done these all in the same lighting/perspective they might have looked nice all together.
Today I decided to update my wobbly ninja, which is a really fun/loose way to draw something. I basically draw very simple geometric shapes in inkscape (below), then select all the points in the shape and force them to be curves instead of sharp corners. The fun part is not allowing myself to make any little adjustments, and just let the results be what they are.
Over the course of the last week, we’ve had a bug make it’s way through both the boys and settle in on me. Luckily, I wasn’t hit as hard as they were, but I’m been mildly miserable for the last two days… *cough cough
I read an interesting post a few days ago on Jeff Gregory’s blog about giving yourself a time limit on doodles so you don’t fret and over think things. I liked the idea, so I threw a six sided die in my bag and decided to use it sometimes to dictate how many minutes I have to doodle. A little creative pressure I suppose.
Our youngest son is constantly trying to get someone in the family to play Monopoly with him, but the rest of us honestly dislike that game. He couldn’t even convince Aunt Cassy… This is just a doodle of a modern day real-estate capitalist running from his investors.
We’ve been getting more and more mayflies at the house lately, but when we looked up information about them, we found out they only live in there adult state for around 1 day. That sucks… Well buzz away little guys, enjoy your day.
Another great comic book helmet, and it was prominently featured tonight on the new Young Justice episode. Here’s to Dr. Fate…
Tomorrow is Theodore Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss’) birthday and our son’s elementary encouraged the kids to dress up as characters from his books. We didn’t really have anything we could have him wear, so my wife found something online that showed making a headband hat thingy, so this is what I came up with.
Continuing the streak of great comic bucket heads, here the great Victor Von Doom!

I got this idea to draw some of my favorite bucket headed characters from comics, so I had to start with Iron Man. Here’s hoping the Avenger’s movie this summer is amazing! (Captain America’s helmet looks dumb.)

I got a request from someone at work for a Luchador with some American themed underoos, so I had to oblige. Colored version below…
