A quick sketch of uplighting from cool pool of water as it reflects off a rather determined and intense wave warrior.
Margot Robbie totally stole the show and captivated me in the movie Suicide Squad. I was unprepared for the actress’s mastery of appearing delightfully unhinged. She actually made batshit-crazy utterly endearing.
I have never witnessed anything so beautiful being so utterly terrifying at the same time. Come to think of it, feminine beauty has always been able to corrupt even the most powerful men and make them putty in the hands of a wiley woman. Happily, most woman aren’t batshit crazy like Harley Quinn and want to see everything burn. Otherwise we’d be in big trouble.
Since Disney has taken over the Star Wars franchise more leading roles have been taken by women. Why not go all the way?
I always thought 3-CPO would have been far more interesting as a girl Protocol Droid. The droid’s character seems to fit far more comfortably if we rather see it as a ‘she’ rather than a ‘he’.
R2D2 was a great companion to Luke Skywalker, so why shouldn’t 3-CPO be the perfect sidekick for Princess Leia? It makes perfect sense to me!
Would you agree? Either way it was fun to doodle this eye candy version of an otherwise neurotic, bossy and stuck up automaton.
Prince Harry was the most interesting Royal for me, but since he met and married Meghan Markle he seems to have lost his Royale Balles.
I’ve got nothing against either Meghan or Harry. Claims of a ”racist media’ and Harry’s sudden change of tack is odd. It raises the question about who is wearing the pants in that already intersectionally-sanctioned and overtly privileged household?
That’s life in Ye Olde Royale Bedde Miss Markle, but it seems a little pea or two is threatening to dislodge the Precious Princess…
A message from Santa. A gentle reminder to be kind to one another this Christmas.
Unused Ping the Panda for a soon to be launched web site.
Sadly the job has been canned. The client not being happy with the direction the character was going. Apparently not committed to the process nor understanding how much work goes into developing a character.
Ping will not be seen online as the mascot to the website, but will be here for all to see and enjoy!! 😉
Groucho was one of the Marx Brothers. They were a comedic trio that delighted audiences in the early days of cinema. What amazes me is how distinctive and enduring his persona was. I suspect he somehow tapped into an archetype that we all recognise. Or maybe it was just the eyes, or the hair, or the moustache. Yep, that moustache is unforgettable!
My moustache Daily Doodle for Movember 27 is Salvador Dali. He remains one of my greatest early influences. He was a brilliant artist, original thinker and bohemian extraordinaire.

Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp struck a chord for countless people all over the world. The character still resonates with society today. The Little Tramp is poignant, quirky and sweet. He had a moustache too and no collection of moustaches would be complete with The Little Tramp.
Charlie Chaplin wrote a song that seems to complement the Little Tramp character. It is beautifully sad and yet; hopeful. Just like The Little Tramp.
Tho’ your heart is aching
Even tho’ it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by
Smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining thru for you.
Light up your face with gladness
Hide ev’ry trace of sadness
Altho’ a tear maybe ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
What’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worth while”
Batman has inspired all kinds of fan art but this takes the cake. Talk about a commitment to the brand!
Come to think of it, why don’t I have a bat’stache?
