You're Doing It Wrong

Oscar as predicted responded with "butt" this morning when asked what he'd like, followed by "toilet" when I would not honor his request.  Sigh...that's been done dude.  "But I want him to have a face...and it's Christmas!"  What?  So just maybe this is what it would look like if you had personified plumbing throwin' up tude during the holidays.  Idk.  Happy Monday!   xoxo

Monsters vs. Butts

Maybe my allowance of Family Guy has reached the saturation point.  Oscar asked over + over again for me to draw just one thing:  a butt.  HAHA.  No.  This will get me into trouble for sure I think. I tell him the closest he will get to this is a portrait of Sir Mix-a-lot + we all know I am not skilled enough to draw a real person (i.e. previously published Harrison Ford blog).  Finally he caves, defeated.  "Allllright, draw a monster then."  By the sound of it, this battle is not over.  Butt will be back.  Happy Friday!  xoxo

Well, the intention was to make it really bloody + stuff...I really need to get up earlier for these elaborate requests.  I guess in the end if the 7 year old is cool with it I can't get down on the super minimal detail.  Note to self:  do not hit snooze.  Happy Thursday!  xoxo

The morning went a little something like this:  draw a shark tank.  EZ-E since we have been battling time in the a.m.  "Ok cute-ah" I say - "It's going to be a super quick sketch though, cool?"  He's good.  Of course, once my cave drawing is complete he points out there isn't any blood.  What?  "I wanted a shark attack in the tank," he says.  Sigh...stay tuned for tomorrow's follow up complete with gory appendages.
Happy Tuesday!  xoxo

Lame, Lame Go Away

So, yeah.  Our goal this morning was to get to school on time + Oscar had zero ideas, leaving us with...this.  Super amateur, but whatevs.  We'll get it together for the remainder of the week - trust.  Happy (Wet) Monday!  xoxo

So not feeling it with this one, but eh, they can’t all be perfect I guess.  Oscar in an effort of good will told me it was “really good mama.”  Awwww…he’s lying but that’s ok – he’s trying to make me feel good + that’s adorable.  2 more days until final judging…everyday is a cliffhanger – enjoy!  Happy Wednesday!  xoxo

Today’s Stewie will not be judged until pick up tonight at Tae Kwon Do…Oscar would like to socialize with the panel before making a final call it seems.  Word.  While the idea of winning Oscar’s Stewie approval is rewarding enough, I would like to add this whole doodle series was inspired by a supercool mom from the neighborhood + her amazing family.  Oscar gets to get his Griffin on thanks to them + their approach to life.  Enjoy every day we have together.  That’s my PSA – peace y’all.  Happy Tuesday!  xoxo

Victory is (will be) Mine!

Well, there is a long back story here but not going to get into.  Let's just say, Family Guy is a hella funny show even if not understood by the kiddies.  I have been given the Stewie challenge by Oscar.  He tested me out this morning...I scored ok.  But, I have been asked to draw him all week to really get it down.  Buckle up - I like to win.  Happy Monday!  xoxo

Dr. Seuss - The Horror

I have to confess, Oscar didn't weigh in on today's doodle + I paid the price.  He needed 2 snacks today based on the pre-Easter party schedule.  I had in mind a Jesus / zombie scene complete with tomb but thought this might not be cool with the teacher at school.  Instead? An innocuous seussian play on the 2 bags.  Oscar was kinda pissed - "those stories are for babies" he tells me.  Ok maybe.  I encouraged him to take some time today + bloody them up - Thing's 1 + 2 the undead version.  Possibly a market here?  Comics, vid games, action figures...hmmm.  Happy Thursday!  xoxo

Down the Toilet

Um, yeah.  There isn't a real story here.  He just asked me to draw...this.  When I wanted to know why he said "it's funny."  Hilarious.  Ok.  Shout out to all the plumbers yo.  Heyyy -  Happy Tuesday!  xoxo

King Piece in the Chess Game

Check, check, check, check, check…yeah.  Slick Rick is always a good start to the week.  Plus, Oscar is down with a game that is not electronic – boom.  He has asked for his own set so we can start our own matches at home.  I’ll be sure to alert Russia + China that there is some new competition in flight.  Happy Monday!  xoxo
