Four Squiggle Ballerinas
Four ballerinas in many positions.

I decided that I wanted to see what different positions I could put the squiggles in. I was amazed at their flexibility. These are done with markers with colored pencil shading.

Squiggle football.
Squiggle field goal kicker. He never misses.

This squiggle has a marker color base with colored pencil shading. The F on his helmet stands for “football”, but I can’t help thinking it may stand for “frustration.” All the Colts fans will understand.

Squiggle girl with ball
I can throw that ball as well as any boy squiggle.

This squiggle has an interesting story with it. I like to watch the softball games at Riverside Park during the summer. There is always talk among the guys about ‘throwing like a girl.”

One day they had lost all their softballs over the fence and called to the concession stand to send one over. The woman inside handed it to a girl standing at the counter and she calmly threw it to the pitcher. That is a very, very long distance. Go check it out for yourself. Complete silence filled the ball park and there was no talk of being ‘a girl’ for the rest of the night.

This squiggle is all marker with most of the colors blended with a light blue, light pink, and yellow marker.

 Picasso dog
Squiggle dog a la Picasso

This was an exercise to make a squiggle look like the style of a famous painter. You add eyes; turn it and add paws; turn it and add the tail and so on. It was interesting to see that putting the elements of the dog in different planes really made the squiggle look similar to Picasso’s work.

This squiggle is a marker base with colored pencil shading.

Parachutist
The green parachute always guarantees a safe landing.

Most of this drawing is marker, but the parachute is shaded in green color pencil. the color scheme is complementary with the red and green, but I used red, green and yellow to make the different browns.

I believe he is going to drop a bag of sand to mark his landing spot. The green parachute makes him a little bit of a dandy.
