Sometimes a doodle turns into a snail...

I sat down after a nice walk with my husband to do a bit of doodling. I got out my white card and pen and started laying down my string.

Little did I know at the time that string didn't want to be a doodle. It wanted to be a snail. With just a couple added lines the snail came crawling out and said I need a reason for hanging here with my head down. A rock magically appeared and all was well.

Silly I know. Not correct as far as a 'real' snail would look but, well, It came from my imagination.

Sometimes the pen knows what it's going to draw and I just hang on for the ride and see where it takes me!

Hope you have a great ride in store for you too!
Cheers, SB

This is cool. I bet he doesn't even chew plants either. This kind of snail I could learn to love!

I love it! It's adorable, keep doodling if this is the result!

very dynamic composition - the shell keeps him from crawling right of the page - you doodled a really great, well balanced, composition

Wow ! He looks as though he slid out of a children's story right onto your blog page.... He's wonderful!
