Doodle 046 - All mixed up (part 1)

I hope everybody's weekend is going well, I spent most of mine either watching anime on Hulu, working out, knitting or running amok outside.

I didn't get back in till past eight and then I had to sit and watch Doctor Who... since I still had drawing to do I just doodled today's mixed up animal/objects while sitting on the couch and watching T.V.

AppleCore suggested: "a panda and teapot".

Panda Teapot - Blue pencil, mechanical pencil and graphite on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 10 mins.
Now I sorta wish I had this teapot... so cute!

prettylittlej suggested: "A honeybee and a xylophone". Not gonna lie, that sorta surprised me, but I came up with this:

The Musical Xylophone Bee - Blue and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine Notebook. Aprox 15 mins.
This bee communicates using the music that it produces by playing the xylophone on its abdomen with its legs. When the bees go out to gather pollen they can play songs together.

Susanna King suggested: "An octopus and a chair". I like octopus, they are fun to draw, I haven't drawn one in ages though, so as I looked up reference images I came up with this:

Octopus Chair - Blue and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 20 mins.
It looks like a throne suited for a mermaid princess, doesn't it? I am rather happy about how it turned out.

OK I am off to bed now, hope you guys enjoyed these doodles! Tomorrow I'll do some more.

I'll have to think about making you a Panda Teapot in stoneware...

No promises, but you have "inspired" me (yet again!).

Maybe I'll make it and - if I do (and it survives firing!) - I might be in contact to get your Snail Mail addy!

These would translate into some fabulous and unique embroidery patterns, if you were so inclined to sell them =). I love all three of them!!
