Doodle 043 - Space Bunny

Oh meetings, I seem to find myself stuck in more and more of those lately... it is part of the whole office job thing, so it doesn't really bother me much, but being someone who has a lot of trouble keeping attention when a topic doesn't involve what I do, well, it can be rough.

I find that doodling helps me concentrate a lot. I might not be looking up at the speaker, but putting lines down on paper helps me listen to them and keep track of where the conversation is going, along with letting me think of things to say, suggestions, etc.

Maybe doing this keeps my "fun" side of the brain entertained while my "business" side does its thing.

I doodled this bunny during a meeting today:
Space Bunny - Pencil on ruled paper. Aprox 1 min.
I had this image of a bunny wearing a space helmet... yeah...

During lunch I did a quick sketch while waiting for food:

Cashier - Mechanical pencil on small Moleskine notebook. Aprox 3 mins.
 At the end of the day I was pretty tired, so Andrei took me to buy a chocolate shake. As we sat waiting for it and chatting about the work day, I decided to refine the bunny doodle idea from my meeting:

Cruising Space Bunny! - Mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 10 mins.
I have started turning this bunny into a vector illustration, I think it could at least make a cute sticker, no?

Finally, I started a facebook page for the blog a little while back, I just hadn't really used it much. I am not really sure what I'll end up sticking there, but if you guys want to follow along there, here is the link.

I thought the bunny looked liked a space carrot jockey too. I like how he is smiling slightly in the second drawing. First Space Bunny looks so sad. Poor sad Space Bunny. sniff sniff.

Marebabe said...

Yup. I totally agree with Michelle and Mrs. Of COURSE that's a space bunny carrot jockey!

Brooke said...

Aww - the bunny! He is adorable! (I also thought carrot jockey for the second version, hehe.)

LOL! You guys are right, totally looks like a space bunny carrot jockey.

Funny thing is, I only added the carrot when Andrei said it was only logical that it should be riding one through space.

I'm just here for the Space Bunny. Space Bunnies might explain all those craters on the moon.
