SkADaMo 2017 post 2

November 14, 2017



I managed to sketch yet again!

Trying to recapture some of the fun I had with SkADaMo 2014 when i was doing animal combinations. I’m not sure what was more fun drawing them or coming up with the wacky names.

I was inspired one day, while wasting time on the interwebs and stumbled upon “Meowls” and “Dirds.” Seems like animal combos are definitely a thing.

So… jumped on the bandwagon.

SkADaMo 2014 Day 2

November 2, 2014

fowl weather Skadamo

Friday night, Halloween night, it rained for the first time in, like, forever!

It poured!

It was miraculous and life affirming!

It was marvelous!

Was looking forward to more precipitation, but nooooooo. The sun shone mockingly back at me today.

Maybe tomorrow we’ll get some “fowl” weather.

What is SkADaMo? Check it out here.

1. Ducks do not make good leaders. Although they are arguably among the most optimistic of species, it is due in no small part to their chronic shortsightedness.

2. However, if you need to be bailed out, a bunny is the first critter you should call.

3. Bears will sink your boat.

SkADaMo Day 23

November 27, 2011

Right up until the moment Iggy remembered her intense fear of water, she quite enjoyed her day spent stalking ducks.


Whoops! Missed a SkADaMo yesterday. Oh well, still going strong with PiBoIdMo. Soooo, I got that goin’ for me.

SkADaMo Day 8

November 10, 2011

When I was in elementary school… a gazillion years ago, we used to do this drill called “duck and cover.” You’d be in class, minding your own business, when a scary, air-raidy sounding alarm would go off. You were then expected to drop down to the floor, crawl under your desk and cover your head with your hands. This was a drill designed to protect you against a nuclear attack.

You heard me.

A nuclear attack. Duck and Cover. Mmmm hmmmm.

I guess they figured it was an easier position to be in to kiss your tookus good-bye.

Anywho, this here is a kinder, gentler, sillier take on the theme… probably just as effective too.

So, yeah, keeping up with the SkADaMo and the PiBoIdMo as well. Feeling pretty pleased with my bad self.

Let’s see. How does the above image illustrate this week’s Illustration Friday theme, propagate?

Does it have anything to do with this?
1 : to cause to continue or increase by sexual or asexual reproduction.

Ummmm, nope.

Does it illustrate this?
2 : to pass along to offspring.

Hmmm, I don’t think so.

How about this?
3 : to cause to spread out and affect a greater number or greater area : extend.

No, I’m afraid not.

Oh! I remember now. I did this illustration for last week’s adrift.  Silly me.

Guess I better get working on something for this weeks prompt, eh?

Ever have one of those days?

Fortunately for jazz lovers everywhere, Maynard (the hottest clarinet player this side of the pond), decided to ignore his animal instinct and follow instead, his bliss.


I’m very excited to announce that my Catpid won second place at the Anti-Valentines Day contest over at Dabbled! I waited until the last minute to enter but it paid off. 

If you get a chance hop on over to Dabbled and check it out. There’s always something fun going on over there.
