Air Mental

These drawings were done on a plane ride to visit my immediate family at my parents' new home in Tennessee. It was a decent flight -- three hours -- and I was determined to draw through most of it. I remember having fond thoughts of crammed doodles from my last trip to England, and I think was intending to mimic the results. My first page is full of the usual random doodles, but my favorite is the light, rightmost, armless, male figure in the lower-right of the page; there was something about his look that appealed (and still appeals to me).

I was running out of steam by the time the second page began, however, and you can kind of see my lines tire out, until my brain is going bonkers but I stubbornly press on with my pencil. The lines start thin and wobbly with the balding man in the center and kinda waft randomly around the page until towards the end, things almost started feeling disassociated to me, producing sketches like the figure in the lower-left and top-left corner of the pages. I really felt like I was going mental. Too much airplane drawing for me.

The Case of the Missing Nipple

This was a fun page of productive draw night doodles, random as usual. I remember with the couple in the upper-right, that I wanted to do some figures interacting with each other, perhaps to satisfy my drive for intimate contact sans the explicit content I considered a few weeks earlier. I also quite enjoy the pointed head at top-center. Finally, Jen was quick to notice the woman in the lower-right corner was missing a nipple. Good eye!

Precious Internet Time

This image is in the running for the smallest doodle page at draw night. Not much to see here, so why would you click on it? No seriously, stop.

The second page, however, is worth every click. Okay, not really, but the female figure in the center interests me because it looks awkward, misproportioned, and imbalanced. That's worth your precious internet time, right?
