Doodles of doodles

Work doodles on big paper with story notes on the back. *Sigh*... good times.

I might be getting fascinated with drawing Vikings. Three of them showed up on this page.

Man, those are sweeeeet!

Marcelo Vignali said...

Very nice sketches! It's funny how as artists, we may not even realize that we're facinated by something in particular, but then we'll notice that we keep drawing the same thing over and over -- like your vikings. At this point you have to admit, whoa...I guess I'm in my viking phase.

That's how I drew my icon. Years ago I kept drawing Wrightson-esque Victorian skeletons.
