Wednesday Update: #Twoodle 'Fur Heron'

Okay, I was GOING to write a proper update today but was, once again, distracted from that task. I ended up participating in another Twitter drawing challenge instead. (I love Twitter drawing challenges in general - just wish there was more time in the day to tackle them). Anyway, this one is called #Twoodle and seems to be pretty cool.

How it works is: throughout the week participants suggest a couple of words that others might want to combine and then illustrate on Wednesday (and tag them with #Twoodle). I randomly selected my words from the available suggestions and got FUR and HERON. And the cartoon above is what resulted from that challenge.

#Twoodle was started by @aliciapadron. More info can be found here: http://twoodle.wordpress.com/about-twoodle/ (Thanks to @deuhlig for explaining it to me).

Twoodle participant @soelver made a timeline of just the art for the challenge (excluding all the banter, the word suggestions, etc.) and you can find that here: https://twitter.com/soelver/timelines/420517209119522816

It just goes to show that ideas for drawings and cartoons and whatnot can come from anywhere - really ANYWHERE. Even by doing nothing more than recklessly, irresponsibly (dangerously, even!) smooshing together words at random.

Anyway, I gotta go... it's time to think up the next Character Of The Day.

WHOA.

This is gonna be one heck of a character.
