If my calculations are right counting upcoming birthdays for Facebook friends--and barring any new friends coming on board--I only have 24 doodles to go before the end of the year. Eight of those are already in the can, waiting for a birthday to pop up.
A couple of my new favorites are in that batch of eight, not so much for their great cartooning, but for the expressions of joy and sheer weirdness. Like one that has a happy dinosaur being "fed" a birthday present by a time-traveling mad scientist.
I'm a little sad that this project is coming to an end. It makes me want each of my last sixteen FB birthday doodles to really leap off the page. But, sticking to my original rules, no pressure, just fun!
Thoughts on sculpting, cartooning, designing, writing and the general joys of being an artist
