  [Ace of Bass or Ass of Bass?]

November 15, 2017

I found a piece of paper that had been in my pocket that I had used for various notes (it's my cell phone). On it was, more or less, the basic joke, which reminded me that I had the idea of the two forms of the word bass, and then without any delay, Bez had come up with the punchline. So I finally got around to drawing it.

I decided I wanted this one needed to be understandable in just black and white, without the extra color cues to show what was going on. Similarly, I didn't spend any time adding shading. I also decided I didn't need to add scales to the fish and make it visually complicated. I think it worked. Some bits of the hands are OK, some aren't. I also got a little better understanding of 'live paint' mode in Illustrator, but decided not to use it.

The rock star is no one in particular. The bottom left is Bez-like (but I didn't use any photos as references), and the one on the right was from a generic reference photo of someone covering his face with his hand, since if I tried it myself, I couldn't see what I looked like... In a way, it's morally modeled after Rob, since he seems to truly despise puns.

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.
