This art was done for a game that I was doing with a friend a few years ago. We didn't finish it but I've always dug the weirdness of the art. Thought I'd post some of it here for the very first time. Hope you enjoy it and it doesn't creep you out too much.

I've got more Doodles here from meetings that I attend. I got 6 done the other day. I'm going to start posting all of the doodles that I do within a couple weeks time so you can see what I do when I'm just listening to someone else speak. It's not that I'm bored when I do this, it just helps me pay attention and stay awake,... since I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat apparently. I don't know why I'm like this but I think it may run in the family. In that case, I absolve myself of ownership or blame. Anyway, here's a bunch of doodles from last week. Enjoy and have an awesome weekend!

Valentine's Day or Saint Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the West, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of "valentines". Modern Valentine symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten notes have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards. The sending of Valentines was a fashion in nineteenth-century Great Britain, and, in 1847, Esther Howland developed a successful business in her Worcester, Massachusetts home with hand-made Valentine cards based on British models. The popularity of Valentine cards in 19th century America was a harbinger of the future commercialization of holidays in the United States.
The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year, behind Christmas. The association estimates that, in the US, men spend on average twice as much money as women.

This is an older sketch from a few sketchbooks ago. Like Gumby I've been feeling a bit intimidated lately when asking out women. Getting back into the dating world isn't something I really wanted to be doing, however, like everyone else I'd like to be with someone. It ain't easy. So if I make a few mistakes and fumble, know that there is someone much more confident behind that nervous smile.
Haven't we all been there one time or another. I can shake off rejection like a dog shakes off water but that doesn't mean it still doesn't hurt a bit.
Anyway, I hope to get past the Gumby stage soon.

I'm not saying that this is exactly in my nightly dreams over the last 4 nights since I came down with this crappy winter cold. One question I have is,... "Why is it taking so damn long for me to feel well enough to go back to work???"
I've got a mortgage to pay for cryin' out loud and I'm not getting paid for these days off ya' know! Understand that,... Immune system indeed!!!
Not that I'm ungrateful for what it does for me throughout the rest of the year, but I don't think I"m asking too much for a quicker recovery, am I?
Oh, well, back to bed and some tea.
Stay warm and healthy.
