  [beware the pet koala]

February 25, 2005

Sketchbook entry: Another one from the IFIP conference. Jill was from Australia. Someone asked a question during her talk and she made the comment about "oh, so you must've been one of the reviewers." She then thanked him for the feedback. In my mind, things went a little differently. In case it's too hard to read the balloon, it says, "I THOUGHT it was you who reviewed my paper. Sic him, Quantas!" OK, now perhaps I'm generalizing a little, but doesn't everyone think that all Australians have pet koala bears that do their bidding? Sort of like your own personal Gentle Ben, only a lot smaller than a grizzly bear and cuter. So no, she DIDN'T actually have a koala attached to her, but I'm SURE she could have summoned one if the situation called for it. And the name Quantas for a koala cracks me up. And yes, I know the name of the airline is Qantas...I don't care.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
