Heartburn Inferno

I'm having a flare-up of heartburn and acid reflux and who knows what else. Pepto Bismol is helping, but not completely. If it doesn't go away, I'm gonna have to go see my doctor about getting back on prescription medication, 'cause this is not the way I want to live my life.

Scribbly work doodles are how I deal with my problems.

Frustrated Meeting Doodles

I attended a meeting today. I thought it was going to be a cool thing where I tested out a new software program my company's getting ready to use, but instead I had to watch a poorly-edited video of someone showing us how to use the program.

The narrator's voice was quite pleasant- she had an accent that sounded British, but infused with elements of an American South accent.

But the video was still kind of long, and there were parts that didn't apply to us, and I was starting to feel like I was going to explode, so I started doodling a little.

It made me feel better and carried me through until we got back to the relevant stuff.

Pasta Utensil

Tonight my sister had a homework assignment for her User-Centered Design class that required her to collaborate with someone who wasn't in her class. She picked me. We had to design a utensil or serving dish that would enable someone to eat long pasta noodles (like spaghetti or ramen) both efficiently and neatly.

I did a little doodling with my tablet using Microsoft Paint while we brainstormed. Here's the picture with no other explanation.

Happy Valentine's Day 2017!

Happy Valentine's Day! If you're reading this blog post, then I love you. I don't care who you are or what you're doing or even if it's actually Valentine's Day- you are my Valentine and my world is better because you are in it.

Be sweet to each other and do something nice for yourself!

I downloaded some new digital art software and got so excited that I actually made something for my blog!

The software is called Krita, and it's a free alternative to Photoshop. I was so excited to find out about it since my Photoshop Elements self-destructed a while back and my other software had a few bothersome characteristics. Krita works well with my Wacom tablet, which is AWESOME.

Krita was made by artists for artists. It appears to be intended mainly for drawing rather than editing photos. It has bells and whistles that I, a casual doodler, have no idea what to do with, so I'm betting a serious digital artist could get some great use out of it.

You can download Krita here:

Like I said, it's FREE! They do accept donations, but you don't have to donate. It's basically the best thing ever.
