Scribbly Doodle

Scribbly Doodle - student project

I'm here because I'm really taking part in the 100 day challenge and this course was recommended. Doing two or more things at once probably isn't the best way to stay focussed (which is one of my problems!), but hey, lockdown, so anything goes.

Day 1: Here is gorget - or someone gorging on a tea, which means a tea fountain as part of a slap up afternoon tea.

Day 2: Lupine - it started off as a Romeo and Juliet idea of a lupin and a pine tree pining for each other, but I added some more pine trees in the background as the one at the top of the tower didn't look like much :-). Then I decided she is pining for her freedom and home. I wasn't sure if my doodle was of a lupin, but it looks like the flower is OK, though the leaves are way off (I only look at flowers on packets of seeds!).

Ideal time: after getting up, before I do my other quick project and definitely before I start my day job.

Day 3: Trappist - a monk possibly about to fall through a trap door.

Day 4: Nationale - a nation of ale, but can you tell which?

Day 5: Blennioidea - I thought I didn't know this word but I have heard of blennies and dimly knew of them as freshwater fish (they are more widespread than that apparently). This chap with the black and white eyes and transparent fins comes from East Timor and is no 2 on the wikipedia page. I doodled a blenny having an idea about one of the other words - Amelia - which reminded me just how similar fish and planes are in form and function.

Day 6: where I give away how little time I usually spend on this exercise by doing 4 in 15 minutes :'). Today went from Insinuation to Suborbital to Taxodium and ended with Opalesce.

Day 7: goading my lazy brain into action. It leapt at one of the words where an easy association came to mind and limped through some of the others. Cannery - canary that's also a can. Currente - different sorts of currants/currents. Jumble - the jumblies who went to sea in a sieve. Ordo - the order of making dough/bread. Pervicacity - a shifty fellow trading in cities where anything goes. Raffinose - some little creature with a raffia nose. Ipecac - I couldn't convey the location this had me imagining, but something to do with distant, harshly beautiful landscapes and forgotten civilisations.

Day 8: word combinations

I started with meticulously rusticate which my brain insisted on reading as meticulously masticate, hence the cow steadily chewing late into the night while the grass grows up around her.

Then I tried staggers cetorhinus to see if I could doodle a rhino staggering about.

Baygall rocella made me think of some elaborate pasta dish, I have no idea why. I thought it could include the zebra pasta dyed with squid ink.

Angiopathy arcanum was the one the came to me first - something along the lines of a heart conducting dark magic.

Day 9: more word combinations, but thinking of the whole world they live in

I wanted to get all of these on one page, but couldn't make them fit. I'm sure if you crossed over the bridge you'd see the other sights and characters.

Day 10: 10 doodles of one word, but which one?
