Me, Myself, and I

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve got some story stuff I’m working on that will be auto- or semi-auto-biographical. The stories themselves are rough at the moment and just kind of fluttering around in my brain. I will tackle what I can as I can and we’ll see what comes of it. In the meantime, I thought I’d share another character design sketch. I’ve been developing my “cartoon self” off and on for a few weeks now or so and I’ve refrained from posting the sketches here, because, well, I guess they just weren’t quite ready to show. Later on, after the character is more established, maybe I’ll post the earlier drawings for the sake of curiosity. Suffice it to say, that caricaturing or making a functional character of one’s self is a unique challenge.

    Ooh, yeah, getting better. I like how the ears are coming out of the jaw. The nose and mouth seem more expressive, too. And I like the shape of the hair.

    Here’s a funny kid’s poem about noses:

    Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face
    by Jack Prelutsky

    Be glad your nose is on your face,

    not pasted on some other place,

    for if it were where it is not,

    you might dislike your nose a lot.

    Imagine if your precious nose

    were sandwiched in between your toes,

    that clearly would not be a treat,

    for you’d be forced to smell your feet.

    Your nose would be a source of dread

    were it attached atop your head,

    it soon would drive you to despair,

    forever tickled by your hair.

    Within your ear, your nose would be

    an absolute catastrophe,

    for when you were obliged to sneeze,

    your brain would rattle from the breeze.

    Your nose, instead, through thick and thin,

    remains between your eyes and chin,

    not pasted on some other place–

    be glad your nose is on your face!

    It’s funny, my anti-spam word is “nozoku.”
