I’m at a loss of words. Although I must say I have an urge to go out and buy a pack of Bubblicious for some reason.
Bubblicious didn’t have a salamander mascot, did it? 😉
For NO reason? Hmm?
No reason whatsoever.
Tee hee! I am so happy!!
*tents fingers* Excellent.
Random but cute 🙂
Is this the rare Laurel Leigh Salamander?
Look at those toes!
I don’t know what you’re talking about.
And, yes, I am fond of the fellow’s toes, too
Chloe says thank you to the nice human who drew the salamander.
Yuu have yet to tell Chloe my name?
Oddly, she’s not big on names. Socks, yes. Names, not so much.
You mean you weren’t inspired by your inner ancestral amphibian? He/she’s cute.
Friendly in a smiley not slimy way.
I don’t have an inner amphibian.
An inner rodent, perhaps…
You don’t need a reason to draw a salamander who just ate jalapeno coated fire ants.
Did he just eat that? I think he’d be a bit more distressed if he had.
Something crawling around ready to climb out of there. Gotta love those toes!
They are toe-riffic, if I say so myself.
Thank you, Mike, Laurel Leigh (and many children in Whatcom County) are truly happy today. The salamander is a beauty. Happy and a bit shy..
No one had any doubt that I was going to draw this, right?
There was much fear in our county about whether it would happen! Now there is much rejoicing, especially on your Facebook page.
He’s darling! You have a real gift that is going to make a lot of kids smile! (and adults, like me, I am smiling, smiling, smiling!!!)
I’m smiling, too! Oh, what a heppy, heppy salamander-y day!
Shirley! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to Whatcom County! I’m sure there will be plenty of folks there who will make sure you arrive at the poetry event with your tail still attached. No strays dogs, cats, rodents, or birds will keep you from your appointed special day at the SpeakEasy16! Thank you Mike! You’re a gentleman and a wowser doodler!
Aww. I have never been called a wowzer doodler before. *blushes*
Best. Doodle. Ever.
Aw! You are too kind!
And too pesky. And too persistent. And too much of a rabble rouser. And too unseemly…
But you’re also too awesome. So don’t go changin’.
Can I like this comment ten times? Now I’m embarrassed. But smiling!
That is awesome! What a neat idea for a recurring theme. For no reason whatsoever I… ate a …drank a … drew a… rode a … and the list goes on. I’d join in.
That is a good idea!
Perhaps that could be the theme of the next doodle contest.
Spring must be in the air and the work must be coming along well. Why else for no reason whatsoever? 😮 😮 He’s shy and delightful. 🙂
Spring must be in the air. Salamanders are too sleepy to hang out when the weather’s cold.
We have closed a road to traffic here because it’s their yearly crossing. Imagine that! 🙂
Looks like a gecko to me…. but cute. 🙂
Shh. Someone might make me redraw it!
It reminds of bubble gum! It’s really a pink skink, correct?
Um. Sure! A pink skink it is!
That’s still a salamander, right?
Lizaridish? English is my forte not science (I went for assonance not genus species–we could go Seuss on this: See the skink. It is pink. See the pink skink. It is fast–oh, it’s gone. You must have blinked.)
He needed to be drawn.
Now that’s a character. Listen to the salamander.
Why? What’s he saying?
Just for no reason…eh?
No reason whatsoever!
He is a handsome little guy. Mike, have you ever taken art lessons or are you a prodigy?
When I was a young’un I took art lessons. I enjoyed them. I painted with watercolors mostly and dabbled in oils and pen and ink.
I always doodled, but those formal lessons made my doodling better.
Oh, I don’t know, Mike. Looks and sounds like the little guy just wanted to come out and say “howdy!” 😉 xoxoM
Yep. Now that the weather is a bit warmer, Sully Salamander was eager to squeeze out from under his rock and take in some rays.
Awww Mike, he’s so cute! I think he needs to wear a cowboy hat though…he looks a little pink and pale to day ‘Howdy!’ H x
A cowboy hat? Now that’s just silly.
Cowboy *boots* however…
Reblogged this on in life there is death and commented:
What a wonderful salamander… he made me smile! 😀
Great! Glad you liked it, Courtney!
Awesome! 😀 So, no reason at all. You just like salamanders, right? 😉
You are correct. I just like salamanders. There is no other reason. I drew it for no reason whatsoever.
Such a cute little guy, Mike 🙂 Now where’s the story to go with him? 😉
Oh, Donna, the long, long story can be found on my Facebook page.
(It was quite an impressive grassroots effort, actually.)
Mike, I had no idea! I’m almost never ON Facebook (so shocked you are! lol…you need to become a Twitter Boy, too!), but I need to take a peek now…
It looks mischievous, like it just got up to something, haha!
All salamanders are up to something. Beware!
haha, I knew it!
I shall reciprocate by awww-ing your adorable, doodled dino.
