Doodle No. 5 Dog Planet

There is a planet that is only populated with dogs. One of its moons is all cats. In fact, the dogs on Dog Planet look just like my dog, and I used to have a gray cat that looked a lot like the cat on Moon Cat.

None of this is a coincidence.

There is a little bit of Marty Kenney in every seahorse I draw, and the lizards too. Or maybe they’re crocodiles. It’s hard to know without a scale. The angler fish and the fox just showed up, and I’m pretty sure the spider has always lived there.
This piece is sold.

This is my dog Kepler, the guy in the moon. He’s softer than he looks, which means a he’s ridiculously soft.

Thanks for looking.

Doodle No. 3

Another doodle. The composition on this one gave me a lot of grief. There’s no going back when you’re working in ink. It was everything I could do to not fill the entire page, but I think I’m going to stop and call it done. The design in the curved strip on the bottom left in orange, that design idea was taken directly from one of Marty Kenney’s drawings. And the sea horse. Marty also liked to draw aliens. His aliens look different from mine, but I bet our aliens would be friends if they ever met.

Doodle No. 2

This is my second doodle.

There is a little bit of Marty Kenney in every seahorse I draw. Marty also had a passion for alien handwriting. So the legend on the right was also inspired by his work. 

This piece is sold.

A doodle I made while remembering Marty Kenney

I started doodling again for the first time in a long time. This piece is ink on paper.

My good friend Marty Kenney took his own life a few weeks ago. In addition to being a kind and loving man, he was also an incredibly talented artist. (For those of you who remember the Genie Bottle, Marty did all of the designs for the laser cutwork in the wood.) I recently spent a few treasured hours looking through his sketchbooks. His doodles and designs filled my head to the point that I dreamt about them. When I returned home, I drew this. Some of the design elements here are definitely inspired by his, like the seahorse and the lizards, the squiggles and dots.

You’ll be seeing a lot more doodles from me as I remember my friend.
