Eating! It’s my favorite thing. For some reason I drew my stickman eating an apple with the stem still on it. Who eats an apple like that? I think I was just afraid you would think she was eating a dog ball or chewing on the biggest jawbreaker known to mankind if I did not add the stem. It’s an apple with a stem. There are even leaves on it! Nobody eats an apple with leaves and a stem attached. Luckily, my stickman people aren’t like regular people. They can do all sorts of irregular things. They are all double jointed, have giant balloon heads, and constantly stand around like ballerinas because I forget to draw them feet. It’s all good, right?
If you are wondering why my stick ladies up there in the featured image at the top both have candles on their cake, well, that is how it is done at my house. Tiny-Small insists that everybody get a candle on their slice of cake and sing a song. It’s the rule around here. It doesn’t have to be your birthday.
I wanted to draw my stickmen doing the running man, but I just drew regular running. I mean, it’s not like you can hear the music playing in my head, right? Plus, regular running was hard enough to draw. I’m better at drawing things that are not moving. Actually, I don’t even know if that is true! I think I might be getting tired of drawing these stick people. I am looking forward to getting my paintbrushes out again!
I am keeping this one short today because…I gotta run.
Laughing was really difficult for me to get right. Probably because I was laughing at myself the whole time I was trying to draw laughing. Then I got the bright idea to look for images on the Internet of people laughing. I stared at the images and spent a while wondering what they were all laughing so hard about and I felt a little left out. That’s when I decided to do a search for jokes to cheer myself up. I specifically searched for bad jokes because who doesn’t love really bad jokes?
Except the jokes weren’t that funny and The Oatmeal kept popping up over and over again so I decided to click on the the Dumb Jokes That Are Funny Post and I ended up reading lots of The Oatmeal. I randomly discovered that The Oatmeal was on Instagram and I lost hours of my life…HOURS! If you are in the mood for a virtual field trip and want to read some funny comics you probably should head over to Instagram and check out The Oatmeal there. If you are not on Instagram sign up. It’s easy! Come find me too. I’m on Instagram as It’s A Dome Life. I’m not sure I could fit Instagram into this paragraph one more time without looking like a crazy fan, but I just did. I’m not getting paid to say all of this I swear. I just love The Oatmeal and Instagram.
I am happy because now I am laughing like the people in all of those images I searched for and I think I finally got the laughing pose right in my stickman drawing Sort of. I feel kind of bad because I think I drew a two legged cat on a leash. I don’t know what happened, but he is not laughing. So, I am back to being sad and off to read more of The Oatmeal. It’s just going to be one of those days.
