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.

Captain Nemo Knows What's Up
We had a "whale" of a weekend, literally. Oscar settled into not 1 but 4 different documentaries over the last few days all about the magnificent mammals. We decided on the narwhal for today's doodle, which really, excellent choice. Narwhals are like magic - that unicorn tusk is killer - and throughout history & literature has been referred to as a mystical creature. I thought the narwhal was technically a porpoise, but as it turns out it's part of the white whale family. Not all together off, porpoises, white whales and dolphins actually form a "superfamily." Feels like there should be pop band & colorblocked 70's bus involved here, right? I smell an animated series...Happy Monday! xoxo
