This doodle was inspired by Ernie's "Rubber Duckie" song from Sesame Street. Not only did I grow up watching the show, but I also played the dos version of "Ernie's Big Splash" obsessively. On top of that, a local car wash company used this song as a jingle for their radio ads, so it was pretty much always stuck in my head as a kid.
Experts claim he was frozen in time for decades, but in reality it just took him that long to crawl home from Europe.
I couldn't decide what to draw, so my husband suggested a banana dancing with a gold plate.
This was partly inspired by the belly dancing lessons I took a few years back where I learned to dance with a gold platter on my head, and it was also partly based on the "plate dance" my husband developed in a moment of at-home silliness (where he was making fun of me for the aforementioned learning to dance with a platter on my head).
Every so often there are just going to be sad cop-out pictures because I don't always have the energy to draw/write a proper note.
This note was inspired by Bill Cosby's famous "Chocolate cake" sketch.
This was originally attached to a blue and white origami penguin, but my husband decided to keep the penguin as an office decoration instead of sending it home with the rest of the notes to be scanned, so now this is just a disembodied label.
Cue Cedric: "Watch out, Graham, it's a POISONOUS mushroom!"
This was a combination of the "tamago" song from Revolutionary Girl Utena, the "map" song from Dora the Explorer, and our exposure to this egg song.
1/14/14 Edit: My husband reminded me that there was a character in Moribito who said something akin to this. Apparently we were eggs-posed to a lot of egg references at the same time.
This was folded into a card with the first image on the front, and the second image on the inside. Please hold onto your indignant gasps until the post has come to a complete stop.
My name is Shannon, and I draw silly things.
