Yesterday I was sitting at the back of the church listening to the girls choir and sketching. My buddy Riley came in, and wanted to see what I was working on. So I showed him the drawings I'd done yesterday for the new book project. He asked me about shading, and so I was showing him how to do it. I drew this little guy as an example and he took on a life of his own. Not content to stay on the 2D page, Doodle Man is trying to lift himself off the page. I realized it had been ages since I just drew something for the fun of it, not to meet a deadline. I wasn't really bummed out about it though, because I love what I do, and I am thankful for that every day.
