I don’t know about you, but I have a little pet peeve about calling my family for dinner. I don’t mind calling the first time. I am reasonably calm calling the second time. The third time, well, I’m annoyed. I did just spend an hour or more making this food, which now seems to interest no one. By time four, I might look a little like this:
Hello and welcome to almost the end of November! Can you believe this year is almost done? I can’t. Our 2013 edition of the 100 things to draw when you’re bored list doesn’t lie, though – we’re getting down to the nitty-gritty. Whatever that is.
I’m giving you #19, Attack of the accountants. I don’t know how threatening an abacus is, but it scares me a little.
Next up is #46, Ginger vs. Mary Ann. I am almost sad that my kids have no idea what Gilligan’s Island is. I always liked Mary Ann.
Stay warm out there, kids!
This week, while selecting my two prompts from our list of 100 Things to Draw When You’re Bored, I gave in and went full nerd. And part incest. But mostly nerd.
First up, it’s my take on #52, “The Next Morning”:
I’m not even sure it took them until morning to figure out that was a bad idea. I’m also hoping Yoda used the Force to cause a light saber malfunction. Come on, Yoda!
Next up, it’s #97, Nerds on Parade:
Can you pick out all the shows / movies?
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time to set your clocks back. Wait, that was Sunday. I finally remembered to set the bedroom clock back this morning after waking up in a panic for the second day in a row. Whoops! It’s really time to continue our journey down the 100 Things to Draw When You’re Bored in 2013 list! Woooooooo!
This week I’m doing #17, carnies. I don’t really know how to draw carnies. I figured maybe they would be socially awkward and not have much fashion sense. But then they could be me. Or geeks. Or nerds. Or fursuiters. In the end, I decided to show carnies in love. He bought her a cotton candy, which almost made up for the fact that he was dead set on bringing Bertha along.
I also went with number 18, Sideshow Barb. It is a little-known fact that Sideshow Bob is my most favorite of all television psychopaths. It may be because I also have a deep-seated urge to kill Bart Simpson, but whatever. My favorite part of his female counterpart? Her teenytiny feet.

The women of Wonderstrange might have a tiny obsession with Shakespeare. I say this because I am definitely a card carrying Shakespearean fool, yet it was not I who added “Shakespeare doing rhythmic gymnastics” to our list of 100 Things to Draw When You’re Bored.
Oh, and rhythmic gymnastics is no fooling, by the way. Those people like rules. Shakespeare wanted to dance with Yorick’s skull, but he had to use a regulation ball instead. He seems to have recovered, and now he is #84 from the list:
Last week, Sarah drew an incredibly hilariously pudgy middle-aged dude in a bikini. This week, I spotted #74 – Beginning Belly Dancing – and I thought, “OMG, I’ll draw a hilariously pudgy middle-aged dude in a belly dancing outfit!” Oh wait. Instead, I settled on the first true belly dancing, which all of us do as bitties but only some of us experience as adults:
Come back and see us tomorrow for random glimpses into the madness behind the making.
Welcome to week number 43 of our annual quest to complete the 100 things to draw when you’re bored list! Yes, it is week 43. Yes, I looked it up. Isn’t that crazy? There are only 9 weeks left IN THE YEAR. What happened to February? I guess I should start making some Christmas stuff! Sheesh!
Here is #12, whine and roses. I went through a few different ideas of what to put on the bottle: ”you never touch me in public,” “you hate my mother,” “there are too many calories in artichoke dip,” and “my jeans must have shrunk” were neck and neck until “you hate my hair” snuck up from the back of the pack.
And # 13, 50 Shades of Strange, has been one of those prompts that has only prompted me to scratch my head trying to figure out how we’re going to make that one work. I decided Marvin here would be excited when his wife started reading 50 Shades of Grey, hoping that she’d be into some role-playing or something.
I don’t know about you, but I need a cold shower now.
As always, click on the image to get it full size, right click to save, use a graphics program to resize and print to your heart’s desire, and wallpaper your bedroom with Marvin in his Slave Leia outfit.
This past weekend Cindy ran the Chicago Marathon and as a result FORGOT that yesterday was Monday…which means there is no line art yet. It’s on the way..hopefully it will arrive faster and fresher than Cindy did on Sunday!!! In the meantime, check out our 100 Things to Draw When you are Bored 2013 list
EDIT: So here they are Friends Don’t Let Friends run marathons and Morning Routine.
Last year, I drew some famous serial killers as they appeared in their high school year books. Yes, I made adolescent Freddy, adolescent Jason’s mom (she was the killer in the original Friday the 13th), and adolescent Mike Myers, showing school spirit. This year, I’m feeling like giving these away for free, so here you go! You can grab the set, or you can take any one of them individually. Happy Halloween Crafting!
Come back and see us later in the week for pics and updates!
HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Internet! You should know the drill by now, but, if you just joined us, we’re working through the 2013 edition of 100 things to draw when you’re bored list. It’s WORLDWIDE, BABY. I have no idea what that means, so I’ll just skip to the free stuff.
When I am sad and stressed, I draw all kinds of sweet bits of pretty. This last weekend I was not sad. I was not stressed. I was just happy. The result of all that happiness is this week’s drawings from 100 Things to Draw when you are Bored 2013 . Bar Fly is number 71 and Pretzel Mafia is number 99.
Come back Wednesday to see some pictures . One of which may be the world’s dirtiest sink!
