some caffeine-inspired doodles


These are from some time I spent sitting in a coffee shop with a cappuccino.

I just love to sit there with a sketchbook and let my mind wander. I filled up eight pages of ideas while I was in there. We have a local coffee shop that has a nice atmosphere.

We also have one Starbucks that's ok, but then there is another Starbucks where they play the most obnoxious music full blast, I don't know how anyone can sit and enjoy coffee. That one is only good as a drive-through.

I LOVE animals, if they aren't mine in my house. Who couldn't love a fuzzy wuzzy kitty or sweet faced pooch.

Loud music blaring in a coffee house? That's about as insane as pumping muzak into the Harley Davidson store.

I am so jealous! You can create something so cute from a blank page. I am too uptight. I can't let myself go. When I doodle, it is geometric designs....all uniform and straight.

THe good thing about being married to The Coffee Guy is the great coffee makers we got to use. We got a restaurant size one and it makes great coffee. Mmmmmmm

I've wondered why cats and dogs automatically go to the people that don't like them?

Now, let's see the same drawings sans caffeine. :)

One of my fav places to go is the coffee shop, but it can only be my favorite if it is void of raucous music and chatter.....drives me nuts!!

Thanks for visiting me, it was such an honor. Really love your place here. I can't even draw a straigh line, so this is great. Think I'll hang around and look around for little while!

More great doodles ... you really do have the knack. My doodles are stick figures ... Not very original !! Hope your week is going well. Take care, Meow

Love them. How great to sit, sip coffee and let you mind wander, huh? I live in that state but people just point a laugh at ME!
