Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Snow Greeting
March 14, 2018
It's snowing today. While at my computer, ocassionally I'll see something
fall from the roof of the next building through the window above my computer,
out of my peripheral vision. I saw a bit fall and leave a clear line down
the side of the building. A little while later, I noticed not only had
this happened multiple times, but it resulted in a message!
My first thought was that it was the firsttwo initials to the Ithaca High
School. I also thought the "H" looked a bit like a chromosome. Or maybe
two people, bundled up for winter, facing each other and holding hands.
And then I thought, "What if it's Backwards Day?" and thus realized
it was a friendship greeting. So I took a picture and flipped it
As I was typing up this text, another bit of snow fell and obliterated
the "I" turning it into a sort of circular blob. It's not quite "OH",
so I'll stick with the "HI".
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.
