“I’m tellin ya,” sighed Floofy, “when 2020 comes, we’re gonna have a year of bad vision puns.”
“That’s looking ahead,” replied Floof.
“I see what you did there,” laughed Floo.
“Bugger,” sighed Floofy.
I do like Floof. It’s the bestest of names. Tomorrow I have a collab with Marge and then next week I return to the usual Little Fears photo-doodles. I will be mixing in doodles like the Floofs as I go.
As with all of this week’s doodles, the forest Floofs are available over on my Etsy store. I’ve also dropped the price of a lot of my older original illustrations. If you’ve had an eye on one but the price has put you off, now’s the time to nobble. Linky: littlefears.etsy.com
“The eyes have,” cried the speaker. “The eyes have it.”
The members of the house remained quiet, unable to watch as wooden hands emerged from the front bench, dragging her in. She let out a scream, silenced as her throat turned to wood.
The speaker looked to the empty place on the bench where the Prime Minister had sat. The fallen ministers returning his gaze. “The eyes have it,” he sighed.
As with all wee cards this week, The original drawing of The Eyes Have It is available on Etsy for £5. Linky: littlefears.etsy.com
After three years of cocking up and Brexit, the unelected Prime Minister, Theresa May, has finally been forced out by her own party. There are only two good things about her tenure. First, it takes grit to stand up and give speeches with that many knives sticking out of her back. Second, she’s better than Boris Johnson, who’s poised to take her position.
Hmm, that’s not really good things is it? Oh well, another squatter evicted from 10 Downing Street.
For those outside the UK who may not get the ‘eyes have it’ reference. ‘The ayes have it’ is a phrase used by the Speaker, Mr John Bercow, during parliament after vote results.
“I am,” sighed Deerhound. “I slept in a puddle last night. Now the fur on my knee is all matted.”
“Sorry to hear that,” replied Sprite. “Hey, it could be worse. You could have your leg stuck in a hole in the ground filled with water.”
“Give it a break,” sighed Deerhound. “I know you mean well…”
HAH! Unusually subtle for me. Like yesterday, my tiny Fear is available on Etsy for £6 with free global postage. Linky: littlefears.etsy.com
When I posted yesterday, I looked at the panel and remembered why I don’t like the ultra short comic style for the Fears. Drawing out a story for maximum-groan is what causes my readers to cry out in pain when they read the punchline. Without the longer story side of it, readers are less likely to slam their heads on the desk, snap pencils or throw keyboards across the room.
It seems most people agree. That’s fine with me!
I was surprised at how many folks showed the love for my usual lo-fi photo with doodle on. My cockles were warmed. Cheers, rabble! So, mixing it up is the way forward. A little of this and a little of that, all within the Fears aesthetic and humour.
Although, this week, it’s all about the micro doodle.
