Recently I have had an extended discussion with several people about my doodling at work, in meetings, in class, and the part that plays in my creative thinking. As such I have added a file into my gallery just for doodles. Many of my paintings and drawings come out of my doodling. When I made my living as an illustrator, I was completely dependent on my doodling to capture ideas and express them to bosses for approval.

 

Most everything you see in my gallery started out as a series of doodles before it became serious work.

 

I do a lot with visual puns and with images I half remember from my childhood.

 

This one is mushrooms and eyes. You will find these in my notebooks and sketchbooks all the way back to grade schools.

 

I have been in trouble with more than one teacher for turning a variation of this drawing on the top, bottom, edges or back of school work.

 

 

Eyes and Mushroom by bear48

 

I have no idea when I started draw silly tikis. In recent years the tikis have taken on steampunk overtones. I have always drawn them in airplanes, fast cars, and sailing ships.

Tiki In Mass by bear48

 

I learned about the art work of the Indians of the North West Pacific coast when I was in Oregon. And things like this fish and sun have been a part of my visual vocabulary ever since.

 

Sun and fish by bear48

 

Often I mix visual puns with the psychedelic. The chameleon is having hunting “timeflys” on top of Captain Kangaroo's Grandfather Clock while cat fish swim past wooden starships.

I often draw things I visualize to carve.

Freaky page filling faces fill the space of my mind’s eye. You will remember some of these guys from my drawings and illustrations.

I have a whole menagerie of characters floating around in my head. Meet Moose and hippie bear as they check out a sound outside the cave at night.

I really would go flying if I could

If it could be with 16 cylinders of supercharged, canvas and dope covered, amphibious, island hopping fury I would. Hopeless Romantic by bear48
