I'm not sure I'll ever be able to top this.

It's dreadful, but artists need to try something different from time to time to keep from getting stale.

I don't see any tightly curled long hair?

I stared for a moment, blankly, at this. Then the laughter came in waves.

Peace,
RobertEveryone's a critic. What can I say? The others were art. This one is a cartoon doodle of man with hairy nostrils and a cheesy moustache. If it's a self portrait please don't take my brutal honesty personally. :) Unless of course it's just too clever for me and I'm not 'getting' it. Which is entirely possible

Peace,
RobertI started an abstract painting yesterday. It'll probably be crap, because I haven't attempted abstract before. But if you like I'll post a pic of it when its done (a euphemism for abandoned) so you can have a go at it :d

Ah. Then you are not familiar with the canon of my bilge doodles, because cheesy faces have been a prominent feature. The spacey weirdo things are only one type.

That said, dreadful isn't criticism, it's judgment. I'm pretty stoked on that elephant. That was about 6 1/2 seconds of uneditable ink time, with no reference. Elephant from memory.

The Doodle is what it is. It comes out, unplanned from my subconscious. The pen does 89% of the work. Not getting it and not liking it are fine. Even saying it isn't up to my usual standard is fine.

Declaring it dreadful? Well, words carry weight and have meaning, eh?

As always, I Doodle because I do, and I share because I've been asked to, and I thoroughly enjoy baring my soul daily.

Peace,
Robert

All clear now? :pI might have to scroll between those pics a bit just to firm the distinction in my brain.

My mother has made her supplemental income as an artist for the past 7 decades or so.
She told me that when monks began signing their work, they would add the Latin word ' fecit'.

It means 'was making this'.

'Lee G fecit'

'Lee G was making this' until he just let it go.

Robert My years in art college left me with a profound dislike for the language of art criticism, mainly due to the tedious intellectual posturing that is such a large part of it. I suppose that might account for why Tom Wolfe's The Painted Word was my favourite criticism on art, that left me howling with delight. From Our House to Bauhaus was OK, but not as cleverly acerbic. However, in regards to your doodle, I wish now I had said something like 'I can't stand looking at it for a number of reasons that may or may not have any bearing on it's artistic merit, except for the elephant, which I personally find to be deftly and sensitively drawn, as well as just plain cute in a child's bedroom sort of way.

The nose hair's are a nice touch.
Of course my trimmer has an attachment for that.
