Seeing as it’s Christmastime, I’m taking a more light-hearted approach to posts this week, focusing on Christmas and the fun and music surrounding it. To celebrate Christmas (and Festivus, which is today), I decided to share some of my favorite Sunday Doodles with you.
Normally Sunday Doodles are exclusive for $5 a month and higher SubscribeStar subscribers (and $3/month subs get doodles the first Sunday of the month), so think of this retrospective as a small Christmas present to you, my loyal readers. If you want the full commentary on each doodle, though, you’ll have to subscribe.
The Very First Sunday Doodles – “Rose-Tinted Glasses” & “Cheeks”
These two doodles were from the first Sunday Doodles, dated 11 November 2019 (Veterans’ Day!). “Rose-Tinted Glasses” has appeared as the “featured image” on posts before, but the Peter Griffin-esque “Cheeks” is new to the free site.
Sunday Doodles II – “Disco Dracula” and “The Hardcore Monsignor”
You can tell early on I was still going strong with my doodling A-game, as this second Sunday Doodles—from 18 November 2019—suggests.. “Disco Dracula”—who looks like a character from a 70s Blaxploitation film—and “The Hardcore Monsignor”—derivative of Monsignor Martinez from King of the Hill—are both awesome looking dudes. “The Hardcore Monsignor” has been on the free site before, though I can’t remember the context. “Disco Dracula” looks particularly spooky—and funky!
Sunday Doodles V – “Sophisticated Baby” & “The Toxic Drooler”
These doodles from the fifth Sunday Doodles (8 December 2019) feature two chunky babies of wildly different backgrounds. “Sophisticated Baby” cracks me up every time I see it, especially the martini and the cigar. “The Toxic Drooler” is what happens when I find a green pen on the ground and have time in a faculty meeting.
The Latest Sunday Doodles – #58!
As you can see, dear reader, you’ve missed out on a lot of Sunday Doodles. The most recent edition, from this past Sunday, 20 December 2020, features some Christmas cheer, so I figured closing out on “Snowman” and “Christmas Tree” would be a fitting end to this post:
There you go—a small taste of the fun you’re missing. I love a good doodle, and I’d love for you to get more of them every Sunday.
Subscribing is a great Christmas gift to yourself—and to yours portly! ‘Tis the season, after all. *Ding!*
