Taking the Eyes Off

After a long week of working at the screen day and night, I just want to take the eyes off.

Meine Jacke

I took one or two semesters of German at Temple University while studying there in the 1980s. Unlike my French and Italian in high school, I recall very little of the language I'm sure I learned in college.

One phrase that stuck with me was "meine Jacke".

The professor would act out whatever he was teaching us and I found it quite amusing when he said, "meine Jacke" while he gracefully stroked the lapels of his blazer.

It reminded me of how my father, once, during a heated game of Password, used the hand motion of playing with yo-yo and saying the word, "bob". (The password was "yo yo".) It caused a great ruckus, this illegal use of pantomime. The game quickly fell apart as the highly competitive McGlinchey family exchanged accusations of cheating and foul play.

My kids find it amusing, and a little odd, that the key phrase I remember is "meine Jacke." I find it useful. I actually get to use it a lot when I can't find "meine Jacke."

Angry, running in sandals

broke out the 'real' sketchbook this weekend -- rather than the usual work notepads or sticky notes.

here's the angry neighbor chasing the kids down the street that just pelted his dog with water balloons for some good summer fun.

Request-a-doodle: baby bubble

click for big
chris said... Today was Jake's first swim lesson. So there we are swimming in the pool together and I notice A LOT of bubbles coming up from the water...And Jake has a BIG smile on his face. No - this was not a scene from Caddyshack but comical (to me) none the less.Can you draw Jake and his dad laughing in the pool surrounded by bubbles coming from Jake's bathing suit?

Not what you asked for but better than nothing at all!

Pig & Friend

Sketched a couple things tonight while watching "The 4400" with the family. It's been our summer tradition for a couple years now to watch the DVD of the previous year's 4400. It's about 4400 people that were 'taken' through time by aliens and then all returned at once with various powers.

This fellow is just down on his luck -- or at least just down on his butt.

I've been taking criticism from the family that my 'doodles' are more like drawings and that I need to return to my doodle roots. I don't know the difference anymore.

Request-a-doodle: Humans as Pets; Cats as Masters

ptmcg in tex said...Humans as pets! It would also be cool to see the pets as masters ;-) (preferably cats)

click on the sketch for a larger view of it -- this was a much bigger doodle while the kids and I watched some tube this evening. Fireplace at the request of the son; side table and lamp request by the daughter.

Request-a-doodle: Oblivious Cell Phoner

Anonymous said...A guy is talking on his cell unaware his car has blown up

This was the original sketch and after I scanned it I realized that the guy on his cell seemed aware of the car exploding -- or he was just crazy talking on the phone.

Just to be clear that he was oblivious to the boom, I redid his eyes as you can see below, in the bonus doodle.

Piece of my heart

Drew this one a ways back at the old job. Was watching 1967 Monterey Pop Festival late last night while desperately trying to remove the boy's blood droplets from the living room rug. He had a bloody nose and didn't realize it til too late.

What Is That?

The illness is over (thanks for your well wishes) and so back to the grind. Doodled this tonight after toiling away on a couple different projects and feeling bleary-eyed. Apologies to those requests that didn't get answered this week -- I did ponder them but nothing struck me in the sketching way to get them done. Better luck tomorrow!
