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.

Iguana...that's all I've got
Yep, I am completely lacking in a clever title today. Hope this isn't too disappointing, but truthfully, I've got nothing here. Not that this is in any way a reflection on the subject...iguanas are perfectly awesome lizards. I am happy Oscar asked me to draw one this morning to accompany his homework lesson all about lower case "i." He's a punchy little guy - scaly & dragon-y. We admire his slow & thoughtful gait through the desert warming himself with the brilliant sun. But...when is the last time you saw an iguana featured in, well, anything? I welcome any comments to the contrary, but Iguana, you have been neglected by pop culture. My apologies. Maybe we should start a fan page on Facebook & get some traction? Meh, let's just leave him to his blissful state of anonymity. He totally seems like the kind of reptile that prefers to live off the grid & under the radar. Carry on Iguana. Happy Wednesday xoxo
