    Dianne, I’m glad you enjoy the captions, no one else has commented on them, and I quite love them.

    I put captions on everything in my life. It’s a joke around here.

    When I was posting these sketches I thought “what do the birds look like” and the extension of that “what are they thinking?” The first bird looks like Bob Denver from his Maynard G. Krebbs days (I watched Dobie Gillis in Australia, I’m not old enough to have seen and remembered it here in the US). The other captions aren’t quotations because they didn’t look like anyone to me, they are just what that bird would say. Well, since you asked, I’ll admit to you that the above bird is really a self portrait and that’s something I say all the time about Star Trek.

    When I actually was posting them (setting them all up to post throughout the week) Dick came in the room and was over my shoulder at them. I would bring one up and read the caption and he’d laugh. I figure I have added many years of life via laughter, to his life that way.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I too watch all versions of Star Trek when I get the chance…and Dr. Who! …so the personalities of our drawings can say stuff…I like that.

    Dianne, you misread the caption and comment. I do NOT watch all versions of Star Trek. I only watch the Original Series of Star Trek, with Kirk, Spock, etc.

    I have tried the other versions, sometimes for several seasons and they all fall flat for me. I have something particularly nasty to say about Next Generation, no, several somethings. And I’m not happy about Star Trek 2.0 the reboot, though I will probably watch the newest moving on demand this weekend because I like Cumberbatch. (But I’m trepidatious. I might watch all the versions of 7-Up instead as I see they are on netflicks. Though the first two are sad already.)

    And I’m rather old school on Dr. Who as well, having seen the first season rerunning on TV in Australia I prefer episodes with Hartnell, Troughton, and Pertwee. And I have to give a nod to Baker but mostly because one of his companions is my all time favorite: Leela

    I was only able to see a few of the Davison Who episodes. I’m quite a Davison fan so If I’d been able to watch them all I might have more to say about them.

    Essentially my Who experience stops there.

    And yep drawings talk. It’s one of the easiest ways to profile artists.

    Have fun with your sketching.

    I especially like this one – something about the beak.

    Thanks Adrianne, it’s one of my favorites too—it’s basically a self-portrait. That’s my nose!
