Post-It Doodles Probiscus Party, Plus


I’ve been holding back, but here now is more glorious ball-point pen on Post-Its. Some familiar schnozzes in profile. Three of them. And since they say three’s a crowd, then I suppose it can be a party, too. And since I did my drawing of Dave Letterman, I’ve periodically been trying my hand at Regis Philbin. He had been on the program that night, but I just couldn’t capture his likeness. You’d think he’d be easy, but I was surprised. Included above is my latest attempt. Still has a little ways to go to being recognizable. I think it looks more like a somewhat heavy-set Conan O’Brien doing his impression of Regis, but it’s a lot closer than my first attempts.

And then, well, sometimes these things just happen…


All of the above were drawn with one of these babies:


When I saw this in the back-to-school section of the drug store, it instantly took me back to about 4th grade or so. An impulse buy to gratify the inner child.

    The pen would be a good header image.

    I love the red and black swirly drawing. I have fond memories of the late ’80s four-color pen, which made for great notes and diary entries in hot pink, purple, aqua and neon green.

    Jamie, thanks again for your comment. You think so? Dunno…

    Cheryl, that pen sounds pretty 80’s alright. It would make a good companion to this one. I was recently envisioning a pen with a large assortment of colors. It wouldn’t be much wider than this one towards the tip, but would flare out to a carousel of, I don’t know, maybe sixteen colors. No doubt, they’ve probably thought about making one, if they haven’t already tried.

    I remember seeing a ten-color one, but it was too fat to draw with. Maybe your cutting-edge carousel technology will be what propels the multi-color ballpoint pen into the 21st century!

    I did indeed. Thanks for the catch! Can’t believe I confused proboscis with probiscus, a nose shaped like a hibiscus flower. All of these noses fall into the general category of proboscis.
