Every school day my son requests his doodle...the one I draw on his snack bag. At times elaborate, whimsical, topical, but mostly just whatever he is into at the moment. I am NOT an artist, but indulge this request each day for fun. This is a daily musing about his requests.

Holy Cravat Batman!
My Scooby-Doo skills are coming along nicely, I think. After all, this current obsession has me testing it out daily despite my trying to influence the ask each day. I say things like "Hey, isn't music class today? How about I draw a guitar?" or, "We had so much fun at the museum last week...wouldn't a pterodactyl be kind of awesome?" to no avail. Hence, the Fred request today. Seriously, Fred is so freaking boring. Plus, I absolutely suck at drawing actual people. There was one highlight though. We recently got a copy of the 1972 classic Scooby-Doo Meets Batman on DVD. (Add to your Netflix queue immediately - it pretty much rocks and if you saw it when you were a kid as I did, it all comes right back to you). I paired Fred with Batman. Fred looks so incredibly lame next to the caped crusader, but alas, Oscar was quite pleased. The only miss was I didn't leave space for a villain, so he was a tiny bit disappointed. We were super late this morning, so I didn't have time to photo, but I can leave you with this image as a reminder to attain a copy of this Hanna Barbera piece of history for your library.
