Scribble Drawings explained

September 26, 2008

So, I won’t necessarily continue posting two of these a day. It’s not because I’d run out of doodles (I don’t think it’s possible); I just simply should be spending more time on chemistry homework :). I will, however, try to think ahead and set the blog up to post a few on days that I’ll be gone.

Before we dive into today’s showcase, I must explain Scribble Drawings. Scribble Drawings are drawings created by very lightly scribbling arbitrary lines and circles. I would then look at the random scribbles and try to see a picture. After finding some object or person, I would outline said picture with several strokes of the pen to make it stand out. Sadly, many of my best, most creative drawings were made this way, so I have no way of really duplicating a particular piece if I happen to like it.

This is a rather bad example of a Scribble drawing. I like to think of this as either my depiction of Igor or my concept drawing for a new character on Invader Zim. Or, just a science experiment gone horribly, horribly wrong.

This picture is a little unsettling, but I can’t place my finger on why. Is it

a.) her unnaturally large chin
b.) the fact that she has no nose
c.) her eyes are just pupils
d.) all of the above
e.) Other (please explain)

This reminds me of the Little Miss books I read as a kid, only, this little miss has put on way too much make-up and is wearing false eyelashes. Maybe it’s Little Miss Prom Queen of Today or Little Miss Has-A-Date-Every-Night or something like that…either way, it’s probably not a book you’d want the kids reading.

This is definitely my favorite of this particular selection (though, not my favorite Scribble Drawing overall). I love his giant eye and teeth…his underbite that no one could possibly function with…Truly a masterpiece.
