The forth time is the charm! I finally get this doodle up. Its the first of the ones I did during the Olympics. This one is entirely blacked, which takes practically forever, but I love the high contrast.
I've been making blacked in doodles lately. They don't scan as well because of all the ink on the page. They bleed a bit while I make them. They also take a lot (a lot!) longer to make.
I will have plenty of time to do them now because the Olympics are on! I'll be spending plenty of time parked in a chair in front of the tv. I can't decide which of the events is my favorite, but I know which is my least favorite, figure skating. If you have to wear sparkly costumes and makeup, its not a sport. What do you think? Do you have a favorite winter sport?
This one makes me smile. I can't exactly say why, maybe the half circles look like grins. I can't give you a good reason for it.
This doodle has a decidedly vertical orientation and your eye moves up and down through it. Mostly it doesn't matter which way I orient a doodle, they work fairly well from any direction. This one very definitly goes this way. Who am I to argue with it?
I have ancient and balky tech, which makes messing around with anything a pain in the rear. I keep hoping to replace it, but it keeps getting pushed back. Its been too long to catch up, so I am just going to start fresh.
What I like about this doodle is the the weight of the white space hanging just below the center line. It pulls youe eye right in, but the other curved elements pull your eye around the rest of the doodle.
It's Spring. I am jumping the gun on it, but there were trilliums blooming in Forest Park yesterday. Trilliums equal spring around here. This doodle is springlike, flowers and leaves bursting out all over.
Two doodles this time because I got busy. No chit chat because I am completely braindead from beating my brains out dealing with this elderly computer. So enjoy them for what they are with no commentary from me.
There is something about this doodle that reminds me of clockworks. I did a brief google search for clockworks, and, in the links I clicked anyway, most of them were by religious men, pastors and proselytizers. I thought about why this could be and can only come up with this question: Is the link between clocks and religion an orderly universe?
Anyway, I like this doodle because of a couple of oddments. There are several rectangular elements scattered around. In the upper right corner, those chicken scratches are measurements for something, but I don't remember what it is, and there is a mistake. A big fat mistake. I don't make them often, even though I do work in ink. I could have photoshopped it out, but where's the fun in that?
