Forest Floofs

“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

Sprint

“Botanica, mate,” said Ami, “what’s up?”

“I just chased a mugger out of my garden,” sighed Botanica.

“Oh dear,” replied Ami. “Did he steal anything from you?”

“My wallet,” grumbled Botanica. “He really gave me a run for my money.”

Fanfic

“Mate,” said Soil, “I tell ya now, I live for fiction about mud.”

“Nice,” said Sprite. “I live for fiction about alarm clocks.”

“Sounds a bit odd,” remarked Soil.

“It is,” sighed Sprite. “But it’s the only thing that gets me up in the morning.”

Moods

“What’s up?” asked Wobble.

“I’ve lost my mood ring,” grumbled Wibble.

“Oh dear,” replied Wobble. “I hope you’re not too upset.”

“Honestly,” sighed Wibble, “I don’t know how I feel…”

Damp Deerhound

“You look bummed, mate,” said Sprite.

“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.

Brass

The Little Fears presents, the complete story of Brass. The Fears seventh series.

I lost two episodes during the WordPress 5.0 troubles. If they turn up, I’ll slot them in. Until then, I hope you enjoy Copper and Irons complete story.



Red Moth

“You’ve got to help me!” whimpered Red.

“What’s wrong?” gasped Serpent.

“I think I’m a moth!” squeaked Red.

“Why would you run into a theatre to tell us that?” asked Sprite. “You should have gone to a doctor.”

“I know,” cried Red. “I just saw a light on…”

The fear of butterflies and moths is called lepidopterophobia. I wonder what the general squawking and flapping of arms is called when a big moth enters the room and blats about. Moth-dance?

Tired Mice

Brass Ep. 57

They drove on through the night, stopping only to scavenge fuel from other abandoned vehicles. They’d occasionally pass driving and recharge time between each other. They polished off a bottle of oil between them, leaving them refreshed for the day ahead.

As morning broke, a curious sight got Irons attention. The head of a cartoon mouse laid on the ground next to the gates of a theme park. Copper knew what it was and she wasn’t stopping for a look around.

It was a trap for humans owned by a mouse.

Sorry folks, I missed yesterdays tale and today I’m super late. Been sat about with only a mobile this last 24 hours. Great for browsing social media and blogs. Terrible for actually posting, haha. Normal service will be resumed tomorrow.

Mods’n’Codders

Brass Ep. 50

Metallic fish were strewn across the street outside the chip shop. Iron nudged the handlebars of a motorcycle with her nose. ‘Triumph’ embossed on the petrol tank. The rest of the bike had sunk into the dirt road.

“On Fridays, two shoals of robot fish riding motorcycles or mopeds would come here and have a dust-up,” sighed Copper.

Iron dug around the tank. As she loosened the soil what was let of the bike sunk below ground level. Copper pulled Iron away from the sinking vehicle.

“It was very seventies,” she continued. “Codrophenia.”

Conference

“Hey there Fears,” said Sprite. “Back from the conference?”

“Yeah,” grumbled Lucy.

“Don’t sound very happy,” pointed out Spectre. “Was everything alright?”

“Fine, fine,” replied Yuffie.

“It’s just…” pondered Fuen, “the hotel took our wake up call a bit seriously…”

“Oh, aye?” chuckled Sprite.

“Yeah,” moaned Clouds. “At 6 am, the manager knocked on our doors and yelled ‘what are you doing with your life?'”
