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.
There's a new pet en la casa...he looks delicious. Yep, it's a fresh water lobster, aptly named Sunday (to the guinea pig's Saturday) since that was when he was acquired. We went to the pet store to get a goldfish; I refused to let Oscar win anymore sorry-looking lesser fish at the local festival. Once we got there he was hooked on this guy. I wanted to name him Dinner, but Oscar wasn't down for that. I am a super fan of crustaceans, and Saturday doesn't seem to mind, so it's all good. Welcome to the family Sunday. Happy Monday! xoxo
Sigh, I know, Batman, Lego Batman...you've seen it all here before. But hey, I am giving new meaning to late in the morning with zero minutes to debate the six year old's request. He simply handed me the cover of his PS3 game & told me to draw him like that. So, yeah. Happy Friday! xoxo
Oscar loooooves Batman, and more specifically, Lego Batman. Think we've gone through this before on this blog, as there have been lego characters requested in doodles of the past. This morning we're focused on perhaps the most famous of all superhero sidekicks...Robin. Personally, I think Robin is pretty lame. But Oscar digs him, so here he is in block-y video game glory. I asked Oscar why he likes him so much. His response? "He's good looking. I bet girls like him." That's a negative my darling - it's all about the mysterious Batman dude. Sorry - we ladies tend to like the dark side. Happy Thursday! xoxo
I have really sucked it with posting lately - I know. Oscar still has his bags so no worries...I've just been too time pressed for the blog. Lameness. Well, yesterday he asked for a prehistoric doodle. Specifically a glyptodon (for those of you that are not paleontologists, it looks kinda like an armadillo, but way bigger and hairy). Of course today we tripped down the evolutionary path to current day bizarro creature - an actual armadillo. In my humble opinion, totes rad. Armored mammals that burrow and migrate based on the moon phases? What? As Oscar & I chatted during my drawing, he blurted out "I want one!" the excitement of their uniqueness so overwhelming. Sigh...me too dude. Thinking the guinea pig wouldn't be willing to share his cage though. Happy Tuesday! xoxo
School day 2, electric boogaloo. And boy, it is harrrrd to get back into a morning routine - so more late posting and super quick sketching...sigh. Hope to get back on it soon so more detail & less lamenting to come all. Oscar was also very undecided this morning so he went with the standard "you like birds, draw one of those" line. He kinda strikes me as a peacock with his highlighted locks and bright green eyes - the teen years will bring some big trouble I'm thinking...better start psyching myself up for that I suppose. Of course, once I finished it he blurted "I want you to draw Mario!" Too bad so sad my darling...we late. Happy Friday - have a great weekend! xoxo
It's official - summer is over. Sigh...today is Oscar's first day of school. Pretty exciting one too, since it's a new school (i.e. no uniform) & it's first grade (i.e. no more kid stuff). Apologies as I think the drawing kinda sucks, but Oscar wanted me to draw the school. As usual, we were running way behind so doodle allotment was down to like under 3 minutes. Good luck to my little dude today - happy Thursday! xoxo
