Woah it feels like aaaages since I've gone tappy-tap on this blog! Actually only seven days! But this new once-weekly routine is already a nice treat. Right now I'm downing a pint of cider and going "eeiny meeny miney moe" to pick this week's scribbler..... and I've landed on this pretty lady Stella Pereira! Do you see that flower face she drew in the sidebar? It looks like a cute fumbly toddler with blonde ponytails who's about to burst into tears because she threw my USB into the toilet to see if it'd float and it didn't. Oh small person with leafy branches for a chin, I cannot be mad at you! You is too cute! Maybe the buzz of cider in my veins is helping too, keeping me chill about the lost USB and all those saved images of dogs in vests that I'll never get back. Either way: no small children are crying and we all get a face-full of Stella's flowers! Good!
Today's scribbler issssss.... Stine Kaasa! The crowd roars! The cats meow! The zebras whip their tails back and forth in each-other's faces! The speakers begin to boom and all the glass chandeliers crash to the ground - crrssshhh! The old ladies take out their false teeth so that they can wildly wiggle their butts to the music and click their gums in a cool rhythmic way! The police sirens are heard faintly in the distance! Beyonce begins to scream a note so high that all the puppy dogs suddenly poop on their owners laps in unison! It is loud and smelly and everyone is having the best day EVER!
(PS - from now on I'll be posting just on Monday because this blog is getting older now and she needs a refreshing nap Tuesday-Sunday to keep herself perky for you)
Hey! I spy another elephant! This week is ALLLLL about our floppy-earred chums. As it should be! Elephants are the best. Did you know that a mama elephant is pregnant for over 1.5 years (YEARS) before she gives birth to her bub? Crazy. Did you know that some newborn elephants suck their trunk for comfort like a baby human sucks their thumb? Ahhh the thought of that kills me. I melt into an emotional puddle. Here's another one: did you know that today's scribbler is Eliot Wyatt? Yes sir. Shove those tidbits into your knapsack of random trivia because these are the FACTS dude! Then go visit Eliot and tell him the thing about the cute baby elephants. He'll love that, maybe!
Today's scribbler is Kevin Bongang. He likes "coffee and more coffee" and that rubs off in his scribbles because they give me a nice little caffeine kick! So much patterny goodness jumping about in my face. Although admittedly I am sipping my second latte for the day so that helps too. Even so: Kevin's lines are an inner-city skate park and my eyeballs are a hyperactive kid on Christmas morning who just skulled seven cups of red cordial and got a shiny new bike!!! Nap time? I think not.
What the what! Today's scribbler is Erik Winkowski and isn't funny how "obvious" this scribble seems now that he's done it? Like oh yeah, OF COURSE those shapes are meant to be a squishy father reading the morning newspaper! And those "lungs" are obviously a long-limbed mum preparing herself for the day ahead... what else could they be? I love this so much. Erik is probably scribbler #200 (or whatever) to attack this scribble sheet and STILL he surprises us and serves up something so unique. People are awesome! Erik, you... everyone! Good vibes all'round today. To be continued....
Today's scribbler is Eda Janko. I particularly like that elephant mug she drew! See it? With the slice of peanut butter toast? After noticing those two small details I went on an exhausting half-hour internet hunt to find out (once and for all) "do elephants even like peanuts?" and the answer is: No. I think! But then ZooKeeper336 reckons that HIS elephants like peanuts, so much so he hides their medicine tablets in Snickers bars. So hmm? Mr Internet has once again rolled me up in a confusing mess of contradicting facts and cartoon myths. But then he gifted me with this gif so all was forgiven!
