What happens when all we can see is differences. Not seeing eye to eye is often a choice to not listen and consider another perspective. These two figures are similar in many ways, and yet they chose to focus on their differences and even turn them into hatred. The facial expressions are angry and mistrustful; … Continue reading Disdain – Music-book doodles 2022

Puppy Look – Music-book Doodles 2022

We recently got our first puppy, a Maltese-poodle mix, named Whiskey... all energy and silly faces. This is the inquisitive face he makes for us whenever we make a new sound for him: a whistle, imitated animal sound, or copy his sounds. He stops, tilts his head, and stares at us as if to ask … Continue reading Puppy Look – Music-book Doodles 2022

Reaching The Light – Music-book Doodles 2022

Being so close to the … Continue reading Reaching The Light – Music-book Doodles 2022

Obviousness – Music-book Doodles 2022

Pink Cat – Music-book Doodles 2022

Did you hear something, was it food or something I should be scared of? … Continue reading Pink Cat – Music-book Doodles 2022

Jus A Fish – Music-book Doodles 2022

I can't wear my glasses when I'm swimming, so fish tend to look blurry at best to me. What is the essence I see... colours and shapes transformed in my mind by the multitude of images of fish I've seen prior to needing glasses: they are beautiful and simple creatures floating quietly around, but always … Continue reading Jus A Fish – Music-book Doodles 2022

Cat, Now! – Music-book Doodles 2022

Hyper-vigilant of all the social trends and political attacks in this world of 250k daily datapoint attacks on the average simple soul, this cat has camouflaged itself in modern-minimalist designs to both blend-in and stand out; fully aware of the near impossibility of surviving every day without offending someone who might misconstrue its very presence … Continue reading Cat, Now! – Music-book Doodles 2022

Overheard Gossip – Music-book Doodles 2022

I'm not saying everyone is like this, but gossip does seem to attract ones attention quite easily. For me, I find myself engaged in an elaborate inner dialogue, an elaboration of the snippet of story I've overheard. I think to myself, I'm allowing an intellectual pursuit and creative adventure when elaborating the backstory and imagined … Continue reading Overheard Gossip – Music-book Doodles 2022

Best In Show – Music-book Doodles 2022

If you ever have the opportunity to watch a dog show, or better yet, the movie Best in Show, you will wonder if you've just witnessed the pinnacle of human absurdity. This is the inspiration for the colour choices on this derivative on my earlier "Angular Dog". The solid blue background is a wonderful complimentary … Continue reading Best In Show – Music-book Doodles 2022
