The Dish Fairy
  [The Dish Fairy making her rounds]

February 13, 2008

A co-worker sent mail encouraging people to clean up their messes in the kitchen area, saying "and there is no dish fairy to come wash them." My reaction? There is too a Dish Fairy! And I've seen her! She is kind, and pretty, and never, ever, ever leaves streaks on the glasses or globs of food on the plates. This is sort of how I'd imagine her making her rounds. I was going to make her some Tinkerbell-esque kind of pixy, complete with a similar costume, but then I realized that the Dish Fairy wouldn't wear such things. Perhaps a dish rag at best, but I couldn't easily represent that. So I hid the naughty/interesting bits with a semi-contrived pose. I do like how she's kind of kneeling on a soap bubble and instead of producing magic pixie sparkles, she makes magic cleaning soap bubbles.

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.
