I'm still doodling and 'doodle-rhyming in my coffee breaks, which have rather more generous and flexible time allowances than I ever had in employment.

By popular request ..... well two people have said they like the doodles/poems enough to see more ....... here's another one, about Darren the Dread.  

Black Pitt pen and my favourite Inktense pencils, plus one of those brushes with a water reservoir in the barrel, and everything can be done on the cream sofas.

It's clear that Darren doesn't even like himself.  It's a good thing he's not one of twins.

                                   DARREN THE DREAD

                     Darren the Dread is a bit of a bruiser
                     Especially when he's been to the boozer
                     His favourite drink is Guinness with Rum -
                     And he's not all bad, 'cause he loves his Mum
                     And at times he can be a likeable fellow
                     He just looks tough - but he's totally yellow!

                     He quickly sees red when he's roused to ire                        

                     But give him a hug and it puts out the fire.

Anyone else out there with a doodle and a bit of doggerel?


  1. he looks just like my ex husband :) (well, apart from the nose tattoo)

    I like your doodlerhymes :)

  2. Boy it was fun to meet Darren the Dread, I love all his colors especially the red! Although he looks scary, and seems rather mad, I bet he's just emulating that of his dad!!

    Good job, entertaining!!

    Hugs Giggles

    1. Oh, Giggles, what a great 'poetic' comment. It really made Dev and me laugh. We needed that today after a hospital visit, so 'Ta muchly'..

  3. Thanks for making me smile :)Nice to know Darren has a soft centre :)
