A collection of doodles with a bit of commentary by RICK GREEN - your cartooning friend

Friday, September 19, 2008


Some of you are looking at this doodle and saying, "What?" That makes me do a COL. (Chuckle Out Loud)

Sorry, but if I have to explain it to you, well, then... you're probably one of the sane ones that reads this blog. (Consider yourself fortunate.)

In other news: Mum-Me posted some photos of her husband opening the caricature that I drew of him. I like getting photos of an unveiling. I don't get to see pics like this too often. Thanks Mum-you for sharing them with me. Seeing them gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

About the unveiling Mum wrote...

I find it very difficult to shop for gifts for HB. If he wants or needs something he just buys it. I am always looking for something unusual and original to give him for his birthday. So I was very excited to stumble across Rick's blog and I contacted him earlier in the year and asked if he could draw a cartoon of HB. Rick agreed, and here is the result.

I think he liked it.

He kept looking and chuckling, looking and chuckling for quite a while. I finally asked him what he thought, and he said "It's funny." Well, that was the whole idea so I judge it a success. Oh, and he did want to know how the illustrator was able to draw the details of his motorbike, camera and clothes so well. (So I think he was pretty impressed by that, Rick.)

Thanks again Mum. As far as the all the details in the drawing... they call it "tracing". I'm glad that he liked it.

It's always a bit bazaar to me to see something that I drew here in Oregon in the hands of someone in Australia. That's the power of the internet.

Looking and chuckling - that's exactly what my FIL did with his. he kept sneaking a look at it and smiling to himself.

You are responsible for a lot of happy people Rick!

Rickt wanted to let you know that I have posted yet another of your drawing on my blog. I found it to be perfect to go hand in hand with my life's circumstances.
