Post-It Post

Pound for pound, I think I do most of my artwork on Post-It Notes (or their generic equivalents). Stacks of those wonderous three-inch squares (how did we live without them?) are always at my side, begging to keep my hand busy during phone calls or quiet moments. I go through 'em like candy, often scribbling away without even realizing it.

So I thought maybe from time to time I'd post one before it hits the trash. I've pixelated the actual note on the note--that's my business! Today's doodle of the Last Son of Krypton leaping into action is yours.

Nice muscles, shading and foreshortening there. Looks like Superman's ready to leap from my monitor.
It's strange how doodles often turn out so well- more dynamic or having more personality as compared to something on one's drawing board.
(I'm not saying there's anything wrong with stuff on your drawing board, of course!)

Neat! I like it!

Post-It notes are great. When I first started dating my wife, I used to draw these little action scenes with the two of us in bizarre adventures, and leave them for her to find in random places around the apt. - the bathroom mirror, inside the refrigerator, etc.

"Faster than you can read the words on this Post-It note, the Man of Steel wants to remind you that dry-cleaning will be ready on the 11th."

Of course, now I'm all self-conscious about drawing good doodles, which is precisely not the point. Sigh.

Brian, you are Patient Zero for the new condition known as Post-It Block.
