Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| The Dish Fairy
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.
Another higher resolution scan (1200dpi).
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.

image, just click on the image.
