Daily Doodles :: The Games We Play


I realized today that I've been doing a whole lot of doodling but that I haven't been sharing my doodles on my blog. I have been sharing them on my Instagram and Facebook though ... mainly because it's so easy and quick to do so.

But I think it might be fun to share them here with a bit more commentary about them. This post and a few more will be the ones that catch me up here on the doodles I've been making and then I hope that I will do a better job keeping my doodles up-to-date here. Sound good?

Here's a doodle I made this morning. I've been interested in doodling about the games we play. Especially games from childhood.

Did you know that the term "Cat's Game" has its origins in the cat who chases his tail? It's a game that never ends because the cat can never actually catch his tail ... similar to a game of tic tac toe that doesn't produce a winner because of the way the Xs and Os get placed. No winner.

The cat from the first doodle inspired this next doodle where I tried to make the cat look lion-like. I would really like to develop a story involving this lion. We'll see.

More childhood games ... like Pat a Cake. Sometimes I crack myself up. :)

And then there's hopscotch. Oh how I adored playing hopscotch.

And the sweet jump rope. Loved jumping rope as a kid and I still love jumping rope.

Archery is not a childhood game per se but thought I'd include this one in the bunch. As you can see, I am into adding fangs to my creatures. I think my fangs aren't evil fangs. I think they're cute. And this FangGirl is one tough girl ... she's been in training. And she's not afraid.
