Peach at the beach

Summer has been incredibly hot in Denmark this year, and I drew this doodle on a warm day in late July while still on vacation. I didn’t get around to post it then – probably because I was too lazy in the heat and my hands were too sweaty for typing.

Anyway, if it’s not obvious, the inspiration for this doodle is the peach emoji. The peach meaning “butt” is very old news, but my doodle ended up as a relatively proper bathing suit version.

I haven’t seen this bathing suit design IRL anywhere, but it would be great if it exists.

Old little horsy

This week I read about the 40.000 year old baby horse that was recently found in Siberia (in this Danish article). I couldn’t stop staring at the photo of the little horse, and I obviously had to draw it. Here’s the result:

The horse’s snout (is that the proper word? Muzzle?) is a bit long in my drawing which I think makes it look less horse-like than in the photo. But I don’t mind, because I think my doodle of the old horse is almost cute. And it continues to amaze me how ancient creatures can be preserved in ice for tens of thousands of years.

I didn’t do any post-editing on this drawing like I normally do, so it’s just pen on paper. A very different style than the last couple of doodles that I’ve posted which have a lot of digital work in them.

I might post more simple doodles, because they take less time to do and I quite like the look.

This might get doodled

I’ve been binge watching the YouTube show “This might get” with Mamrie Hart and Grace Helbig this weekend. It’s a really fun show, and I love how they include fan art in the end of every episode. Here’s my doodle of the two awesome women:

My favorite episode so far is definitely “This might get campy” where they read letters from kids at summer camp. “I used my toothbrush to dig for worms!”

Pizza Gull

Possibly a distant relative (somehow) to the famous Pizza Rat:

“Oooh, mushroom – my favourite!”

He lives in Denmark, and you’ll recognize him by his very straight legs (’cause I forgot that sea gulls have knees).

At first I coloured Pizza Gull white, because I also forgot that sea gulls have grey wings and a black tail (even though I see them every day flying around the city looking for pizza and other goodies!).

“Quack!”

The pale gull looked more like a duck, so I decided to give him some more nature-like colours.

The French Chef

In my baking binge (which I talked about in yesterday’s blog post) I randomly discovered the show ‘The French Chef’ with Julia Child in my search for “croissants” on YouTube. This show is just the best!

I’m learning cooking techniques and fancy dishes in a low-key and practical way, and I LOVE the humour and little nuggets of cooking/ life wisdom like:

“potatoes are a neurotic vegetable”, or

“…finish up the sauce with some light cream – or you can put in milk if you’re on one of those hideous diets.”

This is definitely my new favorite cooking show, possibly my favorite show in all categories.

I didn’t make the Salade Niçoise yet, but it looked really nice, so I had to draw it. And then there was the episode with a 20 lbs lobster sitting on the table, while Julia Child casually teaches lobster lore. And then there’s the cake in a cage of sugar! I could go on, but I’m off to watch more videos and write down food ideas.
