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!


Mother Bug doodles

After feeling like a failing mother and then learning that my daughter is pregnant I thought that would be a good theme to use while I catch up on my doodles. One thing that the past few weeks have taught me is that even though I can teach them about life the best I can, I can’t control their actions. They have to learn from their mistakes.

Earwig

I chose this one because from what I read they build a safe nest but when she feels that she and her family are in danger she’ll move ALL of them. She will even baby-bird them by chewing the food for them.

The Mother Bug

I have never heard of such a thing but it looks like a normal beetle. The White-margined Burrower is considered to have maternal instincts. She will throw herself in harm’s way in the burrow if a predator is to invade their home but also brings them seeds for dinner.

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.


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.


Doodle(s)wash: June to July and the Damn Humidity!

I know, I am SUPER behind on a lot of stuff. Catching up slowly is what I do best. I only wish that I could control the humidity. The paper buckled and soaked up all the water. Even when working quickly it was difficult. Maybe I should take up using markers instead? And SUPER irritated with WP not creating my gallery of images. GRR.


6/30 Party
When I think of party the image of balloons on mailboxes came to mind.
7/1 Sunny Days
I tried a new concept. It didn’t turn out like I wanted but happy with my attempt.
7/2 Delicious Foods
I think being on a diet everything looks delicious. Pie it is.

 

Doodle(s)wash: 6/29

I was super excited about today’s prompt simply because I could put a steampunk spin on it. Absolutely adore all things steampunk and I think a parasol (in place of today’s prompt) is in that alley. Now I’m off to try and see if I can stay within my points for a dinner out with the family. Fingers crossed I can stay away from the bread basket.


Prompt: Umbrella

Doodle(s)wash: 6/22

I wanted to achieve something fun and quick after such a shi%*# day. Swamped at work, lost 6 hours of work, then my supervisor was appalled when I told him that if I’m to do someone else’s job then I need a day or two break from my duties. I just know it’s going to end up being a meeting but if I’m going to need to do art for two departments I need allotted time AND compensated in pay. So, I will work on the Fenton Project and then attend the first writing class.


Prompt: Lemonade

Doodle(s)wash: 6/17

I took time from the stress of and did a quick doodle and watercolor. The one line doodle is a tribute to the bell pepper that tried to take my finger. The purple hull peas watercolor has a special place in my heart. My grandmother would harvest bushels of these peas for us kids to hull during the summer and we would enjoy them through the winter. I remember my fingers were both sore and purple but I would give anything to be on the porch with her and my dad again hulling peas. And WP is still giving me issues…GRR.


Prompt Word: Vegetable

Bell Pepper
Purple Hull Peas
