March 2014 prompt: Saucy

March 2014 prompt: Saucy

um … I don’t know who’s turn it is to make a prompt but I was procrastinating so I did! I thought this would be a good word because I’m reading Gone With the Wind, which features a rather saucy female protagonist and also because this week I discovered the delicious combination on curry and french fries.

I’ve been doing a lot of block printing lately since the most time-consuming class I signed up for this term got cancelled and I stupidly didn’t add anything to replace it (which I will definitely pay for next term…yeah). Even though this was probably not the best decision academically, it’s been really nice to take a break from making things on the computer and work with with more tactile materials. Also, carving the blocks is time-consuming and mindless, which make it the perfect excuse to marathon TV shows while still (sort of) being able to convince yourself that you are being productive.

I picked this month’s prompt kind of selfishly as people with glasses are probably my favorite thing to draw. It’s a huge pain to get the different colored layers to line up correctly though since misaligned glasses look really weird, and unfortunately not in a lovably quirky way.

This is Herbert, the terribly-nearsighted ostrich. Or ‘Herb,’ as his  cousins call him. His cousins are actually the only family he knows *of*. He’s a pretty good cousin himself!

Man, it may just be a wee doodle but I wanted to get something up. Hope nobody was discouraged by the last month! I get the sense that this is a busy term for people; we all understand, and it’s totally fine. The whole point of this blog is that it’s supposed to be fun and creative. So have fun and doodle when you got the time!

In the meantime, this ostrich guy’ll be watchin’ out for fellow doodles, blinking irregularly.
