Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 28: Eating

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 28: Eating

Eating! It’s my favorite thing. For some reason I drew my stickman eating an apple with the stem still on it. Who eats an apple like that? I think I was just afraid you would think she was eating a dog ball or chewing on the biggest jawbreaker known to mankind if I did not add the stem. It’s an apple with a stem. There are even leaves on it! Nobody eats an apple with leaves and a stem attached.…

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 27: Running

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 27: Running

I wanted to draw my stickmen doing the running man, but I just drew regular running. I mean, it’s not like you can hear the music playing in my head, right? Plus, regular running was hard enough to draw. I’m better at drawing things that are not moving. Actually, I don’t even know if that is true! I think I might be getting tired of drawing these stick people. I am looking forward to getting my…

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 26: Laughing

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 26: Laughing

Laughing was really difficult for me to get right. Probably because I was laughing at myself the whole time I was trying to draw laughing. Then I got the bright idea to look for images on the Internet of people laughing. I stared at the images and spent a while wondering what they were all laughing so hard about and I felt a little left out. That’s when I decided to do a search for jokes to cheer…

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 25: Sick

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 25: Sick

Poor little sick stickmen drawings. I think I thought Tiny-Small was getting sick when I added this prompt to the list. We had just gotten back from BlogHer 14 and she had a runny nose and her ears hurt. I still don’t know if she had allergies or a cold, but she seemed to improve within days of getting home. Maybe she was just homesick or allergic to California. We will never know for sure!

I am…

ALS #IceBucketChallenge Embraced With Gusto

ALS #IceBucketChallenge Embraced With Gusto

We got challenged by our friend Quirky Chrissy to do the ice bucket challenge. If you haven’t heard about the challenge it’s designed  to raise money for the fight against ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease). You are asked to either donate money to the ALSAor to dump a bucket of ice water over your head. Most of us are choosing to do both! As of this moment, the challenge has raised $62.5…

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 24: Sleeping

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 24: Sleeping

Today our stickmen get to do something I would like to do more of…sleeping! Nap me! Send me to bed without dinner. I would go willingly, I swear.

Sometimes I get so tired I think about just stretching out on the floor and falling asleep. Sometimes I do. Tiny-Small covers me with her blanket and wakes me up every two minutes to tell me she is going to let me sleep. She would be the perfect person…

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 22: Reading

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 22: Reading

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. I mean, it used to be before I had Tiny-Small and started blogging. Now I read books in 5 minute increments. I still managed to read all five books in The Game of Thronesseries despite my time handicap (Which is definitely legitimate considering there are handicaps in both golf and bowling. Two sports I know absolutely nothing about). It took me a year, but…

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 21: Bird Watching

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 21: Bird Watching

I always thought bird watching was for other people. By other people I mean grandparents and ornithologists. It just seemed so boring. I mean, you sit there looking out the window, and a bird flies by and then you stare at a book filled with 8 different drawings of  birds, that all look remarkably just like the bird that flew by the window. Then you try try to identify it. Or something like that.…

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 20: At The Zoo

Stickman Drawing Challenge Day 20: At The Zoo

I haven’t been to the zoo in a long time. I always have a hard time enjoying myself at the zoo because I feel so bad for some of the animals. They truly look miserable, especially in our heat. At the same time it is pretty amazing to see some of the animals up close and I like to photograph them for reference photos. I guess the zoo leaves me reeling with ambivalence.
