So I was talking to my son on Friday and doodling in my sketchbook. When I say "doodling" to me that means not thinking about what you are drawing, or at least not planning it--just allowing it to happen. Usually, I am focused on something else, like a conversation in this case. (And I promise I was totally listening!)
Anyway, what you see above is the doodle plus what I later added.
Here is what it looked like at the end of the conversation:
But Humpty Dumpty needed some arms. After all, more demons appeared and I didn't want him helpless. I am wondering how long he can stay on the wall. Can all the kings horses and men put him back together if he falls? And why is he in socks?
Doodles can be sources of interesting and curious visual imagery.
I can't wait to see what the next conversation brings.
Edit: I took Art Fan Ako's advice (thanks Ako) and decided to submit this to Illustration Friday for the word "crunchy"--but let's hope Humpty doesn't end up that way!
