More doodles from some time last year, this time of Ted and Jude. Although Jude is looking a little bit like Arya Stark here, with the quote to boot.

I added the bit about the fear being debilitating though, because it is… Perhaps this was the right time to post this, what with the setback on Friday and all. It is the fear that is the worst.

If it looks like all T & J do are stand around looking thoughtful, it’s probably because they’re my usual go-to to get thoughts and feelings out, and I definitely think too much. They are actually a bit more interesting than that.

More doodles from 2017, lightly edited:

portrait1 copy

portrait2 copy

Was testing out a new pen (actually I think it is a marker for kids). Was also watching a lot of episodes of “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23” which was a surprisingly funny and refreshing show, hence the second doodle.

Also, I can’t get enough of the combination of light neon blue + salmon orange ugh such a lovely blend…!

the pack survives

I -finally- scanned in a bunch of my doodles from 2017, and I’m going to slowly post them beginning with this one:

(Lamy pen on proper sketchbook, lightly edited)

The end of the year and the start of a new year is always a great time to be extra introspective – I say extra because I think I am always pretty introspective, I am always (over)thinking, looking into myself perhaps almost a little too much.

Over the coming year I hope I can look outwards a little bit more… and think of the pack.

That is going to be very difficult, and just to demonstrate how much I dislike human beings, here is part of a “poem” that I wrote some years ago:

People of the world
I must confess
That at this moment
I hate you all
