These are some doodles I’ve done at work (during breaks of course). Most of them are from several years ago. After I had been at my current company for a while, my friend Tyler and I started doing post-it doodle exchanges. Most of the time we would come up with some kind of topic, and then we would both draw, and then exchange the results. Recently Tyler was cleaning his desk and came across some of my doodles so I borrowed them for a bit just so I could take pictures of them, because I really liked some of them, as silly as they may be.
An owl sitting on a branch at night. I used to draw this all the time when I was a little kid, an owl sitting on a branch of a tree that had a hole in the trunk with a creature peeking out of it.
A penguin riding a crocodile, preferably into battle with a common enemy.
A man mad almost entirely of mustache, who finds some books to read growing out of a stalk. Undoubtedly he is a god among hipsters.
Phillip & Ferguson, the lovable siamese dog twins. I picture them as yellow labs, which is nice because the drawing is on a yellow post-it. They are generally very good-natured.
Angry Bee Denim was founded by an actual angry bee. It’s a brand for the “angsty cool kids” because he is angry he had to stuff his stinger in some pants, but nobody made him. He rages against himself unknowingly while blaming the system.
The bitch-mower is an industrial farm-like piece of equipment for turning bitches into smaller pieces. I don’t really believe in using the word ‘bitch’ anymore in reference to women because it doesn’t benefit us. But I still think this doodle is funny.
My friend Tyler as a bird, a bird body with a guy head, in Old Mill Bend, Oregon. If you know him you know this hair is legit.
Dusty Rodriguez is a bowlegged Mexican-American sharpshooter from the wild west era.
Grizzly Adams did have a beard. And maybe he also did look like a dark-haired Kenny Rogers.
These ones are more recent. I’ve been dealing with depression this past year and recently started getting my energy back due to a change in regimen. Which was awesome, except I was having a hard time channeling my energy productively, and I was getting angry at a lot of stuff & people, all things I couldn’t control. I asked my friend for some advice and then I made a tiny little paper reminder out of it which was helpful. Time also helped.
My coworkers and I were in a phone-meeting with one of our industry partners reps, and he kept talking about getting something “on the books”. It was distracting.
This was the same or similar type of day day as the doodle about channelling my energy & not worrying about other people’s shit. Things to be thankful for. My dog, she always makes me smile. Lunch. Some people don’t have lunch. Energy! I lost it, and now I have it again.
