FORKING

What is your favourite quote and why? Who cares, its forking Friday… Actually I do care; I love quotes whether it’s from a poem, song, movie, from novels – I like remembering my much-loved ones and using them sporadically and when the timing is right. I seem to quote from …

BOB

I LOVE TO LOLLYGAG

The word LOLLYGAG was chosen by a member of the art game Monkey Side Bars and we drew this word for posting to Instagram on Sunday, February 16th. http://msbweb.wordpress.com/2014/02/09/lollygag The origin of this odd term lollygag is unknown but is an Americanism dating to the middle of the nineteenth century.  …

UNICORNS

Unicorns kept bouncing up in the Draw Something game when Zynga decided to bombard us with a Minions theme.  I didn’t even know what a Minion was before then. I draw also for a group on Facebook called Draw Something 2 Fanatics on the DS2 game and as the group …

ANGRY BIRDS

Angry Birds was all I could think of drawing when I got the word ‘Birds’ in the game Draw Something.  Come to think of it, next time I get that word I might draw a Budgerigar playing Angry Birds… yes that would work. Like the Draw Something game Angry Birds …

THE DUDE

Jeff Bridges is… THE DUDE from ‘The Big Lebowski’. To my mind The Big Lebowski is one of the best Coen Brothers movies.  It has a great cast not to mention a dazzling soundtrack and the dream structures used in the film are exceptionally good.  This is my favorite one: …

MUSHROOM

I came across this psychedelic mushroom on a reggae T-shirt found randomly on-line and drew it very quickly whilst waiting for a long glass of Pimms. As you can see there was not mushroom on the mushroom and I was as lazy as the girl sprawled across it so rushed …

Other Mother

Other Mother is a classic baddie created by British author Neil Gaiman in the amazing fantasy-horror novel and movie Coraline. Using one google search for an image orientation I was drawn to drawing Other Mother because the word available was ‘button’. I felt like I just climbed back up from …

TOILOGRAPHY

TOILOGRAPHY I began following Toilography quite some time ago on Instagram which is a thread dedicated to toilet photography and the appreciation of the restroom, I know that I certainly appreciate and respect it. My toilet draw was on Draw Something 1 and just the basic tool of a pen …

PLAT DU JOUR

Plat Du Jour It’s time to raise the curtain… That wannabe piglet Miss Piggy made it to our TV screens in the early 70s on The Muppet Show. Miss Piggy was forever grabbing the little frog that she wanted to marry.  Unfortunately he couldn’t Kermit (…old one). I drew Miss …

CHEWBACCA

CHEWBACCA – CUTEBACCA In a galaxy far far away… Episode IV: A New Hope – Chewbacca makes his first appearance and then three others I believe (without checking on google). Chewie was from the planet Kashyyyk (and yes, I had to check the spelling on google and it is spelt …

SIMONE

SIMONE Do you remember the telephone? Drawing the word ‘telephone’ I googled and came across this lovely lady to use as a reference. I have no idea who she is so I have named her Simone. I tried searching for Simone on the phone again but without any luck. Simone …

CHIEF WIGGUM

CHIEF WIGGUM STOP! Police… Chief of Springfield’s Chief Wiggum I had to find a use for the bullet hole tool in Draw Something and randomly placed them alongside my drawing of The Simpson’s lazy cop Chief Wiggam, father of little Ralph. In many Simpson episodes you see Chief Wiggam imprudently …

Diary #19

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, 1980 — Brilliant costume designs by the 11-year-old fashion prodigy Vaneeesa Blaylock for her summer production of… hmm… IDK what it was supposed to be called… but I’m sure it would have been epic. I think various artistic and technical differences resulted in a less legendary staging, although …
