Sunday POODLE DOODLES
I went to bed Friday night thinking I had "published" the post for that day. On Saturday morning I discovered I had not - it was still in draft status. I left Friday's date on it and published Dipping Pens in Company Ink on Saturday.
With an otherwise busy schedule on Saturday, a half a day of work, the need to shop for a new cell phone and to work on the next chapter of my short story Echoes of Eddie, I was unable to come up with an idea for a Saturday post. I figured it was no big deal since blog readership and hits diminish on the weekends anyway. (Some people actually have a life on the weekends?)
For the past two and a half months I been posting two sets of panels of my original comic strip, Poodle Doodles, on both Saturday and Sunday. With no post on Saturday, I had to "double-dip" and scanned four sets to be published in this Sunday post. If you haven't seen the previous posts of Poodle Doodles, you'll find links to all the strips published to date on my sidebar under the title "Previous Toons."
Sometimes I drew other cartoons:
Before Photoshop, there was the original cut & paste method:
And sometimes my drawings were more of an adult nature ...
Until I started posting my Poodle Doodles comic strip ten weeks ago, I really hadn't done much drawing in nearly thirty years. Now that I am able to scan my drawings - (Why did I wait so long to get a scanner?) - I have regained a desire to draw again. I am posting "Poodles" every Saturday and Sunday. From time to time I will post some new cartoons like those above.
Someone suggested that I should start a new blog exclusively for my drawings and cartoons and use this for my writing. That is something I might consider in the future.
