I got inspired by a challenge

There's a challenge about ot launch on redbubble for nursery frieze animal shirts for kids.
I started with sketching a few doodles of some favorite animals of mine. I picked the mouse cause I liked the way the sketch turned out. I inked it and scanned it in and cleaned it up and made it look all pretty in Ps, added some text and ended up with this

Then I realized I should do more of them, cause the sketches were all pretty cute.

so then I did


And


I will probably do some more, I am having a lot of fun with them and I think they are turning out pretty cute. I doubt I will do the whole alphabet though.

Okay so, the other night...

I could not get to sleep. After trying unsuccessfully to go to sleep for the better part of the night, I was watching some old SNL from the 70's on DVD, and kind of doodling away. Then this happened. So it's
sort of a 70's inspired energy-sink of a doodle to try and clear my head so I could get to sleep. Not the best inspiration for something, but they can't all be the Pietà.

This "Thing" refused to be called anything else. I've been sitting here for 3 days now trying to come up with a better name for it and failing. It wants to be called "Thing" and I am gonna go with that.

here 'tis

Sunburst

I really liked the way the bookmark I did yesterday turned out, especially the way the sun looked when I was done. So I decided to do an ACEO of just the Sun.
 A little bright, possibly OVERLY cheerful; but silly, fun and happy never hurts!

So here it is:
