Here’s a doodle especially for the HearthStone fans and/or linguists out there.

I had this conversation with Mecha-Jaraxxus today:

It cracks me up that he is ALWAYS YELLING! EVEN WHEN SAYING SOMETHING POLITE!

Every time there’s something fun with language happening my linguist brain is like: “That’s not normal in conversation, I wonder what’s happening, let’s write a 20 page paper on it!”

I couldn’t figure out if this particular “THANK YOU” was the person being sassy or friendly, but it made me think that Jaraxxus was repeating what I was saying like a silly parrot robot demon. Either way, I LOVE IT!

Ladylike doodles

I’ve recently discovered BuzzFeed’s Ladylike channel on YouTube and now watch a lot of episodes in my breaks between job hunting.

I really like that all kinds of subjects are discussed on the channel – from periods and pesto to fashion and friendships. (Alliteration, yum).

Yesterday I watched the ladies make fan art of fans who had made them fan art. So I decided to make some fan art based on that episode:

So meta!

I also really like all of the makeup/ beauty routine videos even though I rarely wear makeup myself and don’t really have a routine for what I do when I get up in the morning (is peeing and porridge a routine? Ok, I’ll stop with the alliteration). But the videos are all very fun and well-made so I gobble it all up. Also, I think part of the appeal for me is to see people (who happen to be women my age) have fun at their jobs – while still working hard, obviously.

Btw, Kristin wasn’t in the fan art episode, so I added her based on her look from the pesto competition with Jen. That’s why she looks a bit more serious, maybe 😀

These were drawn by hand and then edited in Illustrator. Now back to watching videos- I mean looking for jobs like a real adult lady!

Snape (and Umbridge)

I drew Snape and Umbridge while listening to the 5th Harry Potter book:

But Umbridge is THE WORST so I’ll make her small.

And I didn’t do any digital editing on her, ’cause boo Umbridge.

I’m already on book 6, but am almost to concentrated and excited/scared to doodle while listening, because I know what’s coming and I’m not in a hurry for the horror 😨

We also watched the first two Harry Potter movies this week so that’s confusing and fun. And after listening to the books, I catch myself saying “that’s not like the book, noooo!” literally every 5 minutes. But still enjoying the movie very much!

HP #4

I made a LOT of drawings listening to the fourth Harry Potter book. Here are some of my favourites:

 

 

As you can see, the serious tone in the book made my doodles quite dark and creepy. But here’s a happy gnome and Ron wearing his old dress robes to cheer you up:

And if that didn’t work:
