Doodle Progress

As some of you may know, I'm currently in between jobs. More accurately, I'm in between iterations of the same job. You see, the parent company was no longer interested in the child, and gave it up for foster care. The child is taking its fate in its own hands and reforming with new independence. There's an amazing amount of prep work to be done, and the very act of being unemployed has many time-consuming responsibilities built into it as well. So I'm happy to report that I haven't taken to roaming the streets lookin' for trouble.

Perhaps someday I will be more specific about the above, but I'll wait until there's an exciting and happy ending to the story.

In the meantime, I've had some opportunities to fill small moments of time. One of those moments was filled with a little doodling while listening to NPR.

I've been in possession of Lady Orlando's moleskine for several weeks. I'm attempting to come up with a witch-themed bit of art for her MolyX-42 book. The witch doodles are part of that process, but it remains to be seen if any part of the doodle will make the final cut. Needless to say, it's a work in progress.

The Guinness doodle with accompanying leprechauns was purely a time waster. I met some friends at Hackney's in Wheeling for dinner and drinks. I got there a bit earlier than we were supposed to meet up, so I doodled. Fascinating story, no? No. I know, sorry.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love your NPR doodles. I also tend to spend a bulk of my day - at work, out of work, between work - listening to NPR.

I'd love to hear more about this roamin' of the streets and lookin' for trouble! Something to look forward to in a future post.

Take care!
