Chic Chops!
  [That chick's 85 grams of fuzzy, yellow dynamite!]

April 07, 2018

A friend showed me a shopping list where instead of putting down "choc chips" (chocolate chips), she had accidentally typed "chic chops" and kept it because it sounded funny. That got me thinking and conjured this image.

This was all done by hand, no computers. I drew a few very quick and rough sketches to try to figure out how I could fit the face and the headband, and if it should be a front or side view. Then it was a pencil sketch, inked with a pen, and colored with some "brush markers" a friend gave me a while back, and then scanned in. Given that it was only a couple hours, I'm happy with the results and more importantly, it amuses me. The full-size version of the scan is here.

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.
