It is interesting to me how the size of a piece of paper changes the way I doodle. This latest doodle is directly inspired by a couple of vintage Art Deco broaches I found when searching for ideas on the internet. I’ve been trying to work out just what it is that makes this style so distinctive to me, and I think it is the combination of very geometric shapes combined with a certain unexpectedness. Despite the small size of the doodle, it still took a few hours to complete. I hope to get faster, and possible do a bit of sketching in the Moleskine everyday.
On a more musical note, MrE and I went to see Hall and Oates live in concert at the Huntsville, Von Braun center, and they were amazing! They played all of their hits of course, ending with a cool improve rendition of I Can’t Go For That. Before the show, MrE and I played another game of squiggles, this time in the Moleskine. My favorite cartoon for this go-round is the man with elephantiasis with tiny eyes and a huge mouth.
