BLOBS #82 RESULTS

Happy RESULTS DAY! We had a week of ups - and I hope you did too. Creating characters here on the Blob Blog is a place where anything goes. Kind of like free-writing. Throwing ideas down quickly on paper warms us up for the day ahead. Check out VIKING PIG, FLYING WORM and BALD EAGLE DANCING below along with more. Enjoy!

I had a couple BLOB + BLOB = STORY characters....

Try these story questions for the scenes above...

Why would a worm have wings? Could it be a worm fairy?

What kind of camp is rhino at?  What stories could eagle be telling?

That's it for now. Hope you stop in next week!

BLOBS #81 RESULTS

Welcome to RESULTS DAY! Halloween catalogs are trickling in (sadly) and may have been the reason some characters ended up in disguise this week. With so many kid costumes out there I wondered what animals might pick if THEY could dress up. What do you think?

I decided to color up my giraffe wearing a sunflower outfit. This completely changed from the original shape and even reminded me of an earlier character developed a while back ago: Gabbi, the garden loving giraffe. How fun would it be if the below image was a dreamy vision she had when longing to be surrounded by colorful flowers? If she could dress up as something, I pictured her as a brilliant and beautiful sunflower.

Thanks for stopping by!
