Menace Doodle Bug

Last night at the event that I attended our kind host was telling me about this huge renaissance fair that happens every year and how people from all over show up to attend. It’s MASSIVE. This got me to thinking about some of the bugs that could’ve caused problems and then it hit me. The flea! I have had my dealings with these hopping little buggers from living in the south but where I live now I rarely even see them. Although, I’ve been warned about eating squirrel in these parts because of fleas. One thing that I have learned is that dawn dish soap works wonders!


8/13: Doodle Hairy Pie

I started out wanting to do doodle something that I haven’t seen before…foreign if you will. Let me just say my hats off to my readers inĀ Australia. I have seen videos online about the monstrous sized creatures of the insect kind. Normally bugs don’t bother me but this one is different. I don’t know if it’s because it looks like it’s judging me for all my bad life decisions or it’s trying to square up with me. I just googled ‘hairy bugs’ and this came across my image search. I wouldn’t mind seeing one in person as long as it doesn’t look like Mr. T and asking me if I have a problem. What are y’alls thoughts? Any weird bug images or stories you would like to share?

Common (doodle)Bugs

I thought about common bugs that I would see all the time in Texas. However nostalgic as the memories were I still had the urge to grab a fly-swatter or bug spray.


Creepy and Cute Doodling Catch-Up

It was a very trying day at work but I only snapped at one person. I could barely complete my job and there was no way in hell I was going to do another person’s job. My coworker was perfectly capable of doing so. She just wanted to stall until the break. I came home and my husband had already started dinner for me. My son joined me in some drawing fun and I think I’m all caught up still using one line and some dots. I’m hoping to do some painting tomorrow but for now, I’m laying down with a warm compress on my face.

8/2 Doodlebug: Giraffe Weevil

Have you ever seen these creatures? I mean seriously…EVIL is in the name (giraffe weevil). I tried to make it look cute but what I created was a thing of nightmares. It looks like it has talons! I giggled at the finished creepy doodle. I’ll try for something else tomorrow as my tooth is killing me (yay appointment tomorrow) and I’m going to bed.


8/1 Doodle Bug: Bee

Once upon a time, I thought about trying to keep bees but it wasn’t for the honey. It was more to help the species thrive. Then I learned that it’s a big NO NO in our city along with collecting rainwater and having too big of a garden. I’m fascinated by the beauty of these little creatures but mine ended up looking like a menace. I think I’m going to try to incorporate some ‘cute’ bugs. Is there such a thing?

Doodle(s)wash: 6/12

Posting a little late. Miner emergency fixed and then my husband wanted to discuss a new conspiracy theory. Now he’s off researching some of the plausible points that I made and isn’t too happy. I have been working hard on a story that was supposed to be short but when I’m done I think I’m going to have to break it up into smaller posts. I did a little research into today prompt and discovered that there are more to rocks than just it being a rock. I’m not a geologist but have a new found respect for the field. Rock on geologist (yup, pun intended).


Prompt Word: Rocks

Doodle(s)wash: 6/9

I am learning something new almost every time I try and paint something. Today I had the unfortunate circumstance of learning a new trigger for me. I almost gave up my blog, writing, painting, everything that calms me and gives me something to look forward too. I did everything possible to stay away from my computer today. I cleaned the car out, grocery shopping, cleaned the fridge, hell I even shaved the dog (it’s his grooming time).

I told my husband everything that was happening and he said, ‘If you need to quit, then quit. There is no reason to feel ashamed or bad about yourself because of it. But, would you really be ok with that? Or would you spend your time in the bed? Would you really let someone make you feel like the worse possible you all over again?’ I hated him for that or rather I hated when he was right. So, I sat down and painted and even started a short story. I think after dinner I might even work out some Fenton Friday brainstorming. Who knows.


Prompt Word: Trees

Doodle(s)wash: 6/5

I am just furious with myself and I about gave up on dieting. I was microwaving one of my ‘diet approved’ meals and when pulling it out the lava contents went all over my right hand. This is an issue as I’m right-handed. My husband was a little dumbfounded that I was more worried about painting than my hand. I knew the degree of the burn and all it would be sore and tender. I couldn’t paint as long as I wanted to and I wanted to add WAY more detail but it was all fun. I think I’m going to practice galaxies too. Yup…still on my diet but it’s starting to get violent!

The doodle is still one line and dots and the balloon. I’m in LOVE with my balloon! I tried to capture a steampunk feel because I love all things steampunk and very happy with the finished piece.


Doodle(s)wash Prompt: Hot Air Balloon
