Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
October 22, 2015
We have an automatic paper towel dispenser at work. It's located along a
wall, and anytime I stand near it, it will produce a towel. It puts me in
the mind of a superhero's somewhat-lame sidekick: Towelboy, whose minor
superpower is the ability to offer a paper towel at will. It's kind of the
only tool in his toolbox, so that's all he's got to work with. But damned
if he won't try to use it when possible, though generally at
inappropriate times. Kind of like Sigorney Weaver's character on Galaxy
Quest whose only job is to repeat back what the computer said. "I have
one job on this lousy ship. It's stupid, but I'm going to do it!
A quick photoshop sketch, then colored with Illustrator. I'm
not sure exactly how I did it, but it preserved the width of the lines.
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.
