Secret Sketchbook Scribbles by Sherm

Sherm Sketchbook 003 cartoon face
I don't keep a "real" sketchbook in the strictest sense of the word. I scribble and doodle on Post-its and scraps of paper because my mind and pen can wander freely ...without worrying about it being permanently in a book.
Then I paste them onto 8 1/2 x 11 paper, punch holes and stick 'em in a binder. Boom. Sketchbook.

Apparently I really like drawing big noses.

I'm not sure what all this means, but there it is!

I love your Mr. Crabs. And I agree, the bunny is cool.

Sherm said...

Wow...you guys really like that rabbit, huh? Thanks!

I wonder what his name is...?

David said...

Burt Bunny.

Great sketches (I like the bunny too)

Fun doodles, Sherm! I agree a sketchbook can be a bit intimidating. Thank goodness you didn't lose this in the trash bin, though. Love the off-model stuff.

Sherm said...

Hey Larry-Bob-David-Duncan -- I'm happy to see that you like 'em! I was keeping these doodles around for my own amusement (and for potential idea-starters) but I'm glad to know they're suitable for posting as well ^_^

I've got a lot more, so maybe I'll make it a weekly thing. You guys are swell!

FrankenBarry said...

Great stuff, Sherm... thanks for sharing these! I'm with you on the sketchbook thing – I do my best sketching on Post-its, and scraps. When I try to work in one of those fancy sketchbooks I tighten up, and lose all sense of spontaneity. Yeah, a weekly sketch post would be cool!

that squidward mr crabs drawing is hilarious

Sherm said...

Hey Ryan...thanks! After drawing those guys "on-model" for so long, my doodling-mind loves to take those characters to strange places...

Hi Julian...I'm glad you like those sketches! regading sketchbooks: I'm amazed at people who have a bunch of filled, bound sketchbooks...all I'm saying is it ain't for me. Give me the freedom of a Post-It note anyday ^_^
