Way back Wednesday: For our friends down east

Maybe those who are still digging out might wait a week or to to find this toon amusing. Note it's an encore presentation; drawn seven years ago and appearing in this blog a year or so back.

I was just beginning to experiment with ink washes (without benefit of training or license). I see a detail or two I'd do differently, yet I think the gag might be a keeper.

Drawn while waiting for lunch
It actually takes longer to scan and post some of these pictures than it takes to draw them!  As long as one has a writing implement and a drawing surface (paper and pencil are but just one paired option) the rest is pretty easy.

The postings on this blog have been erstwhile if one accepts a loose definition of 'erstwhile'.   I have no explanation for the inertia or the interval between posts. Time was that I posted daily. Now it's 'whenever-ly".  Thanks for your patience and for checking out the blog now and again to see whether new faces have arrived.

A Few Friday Faves

Mug on a mug
   The beverage is fresh ground Ethiopian blend, locally roasted. The coffee has hints of banana and blueberry. The mug is a very cool Christmas gift from my lovely and thoughtful spouse. For a doodler what could be nicer than a mug that one can chalk up drawings and change them as often as one wants? Bonus: Orange is one of my favourite colours so I get to enjoy some orange with that mug!.
