What ARE movies?
  [Actually, if you ask them, movies think they're personification.]

I think it began with a phone conversation with my friend Tania about whether parts of speech are still taught in schools. Then I think I made both of the comments in this cartoon. However, had we been in a movie together, we would have had this conversation.

This was a quick sketch. Actually, I had drawn it a week ago only to discover that unplugging my Wacon tablet now craashes my Windows VM under VirtualBox, thus losing the first drawing. So this one was drawn, inked, and highlighted in a couple hours. First a sketch in Photoshop, then some inking in Illustrator, plus the speech balloons, then back into Photoshop for the white highlights and final touches. I decided to try the white highlights mostly on a whim to see how they looked. Certainly an experiment, but there are places where they work.

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.
