Introducing another doodle guy


Another doodle character that might become more. Might not. We'll see what Mr. Dirty Sock Head Guy tells me about himself and if he's more interesting than he seems. I'm thinking he might be, as there is a lot of room for brains in that dirty sock head of his, you know, since he basically has no body whatsoever. Maybe he'd be a good tech helper character in the Wiener Man universe.

Sometimes I think I'm funny

Created this all-text comic (if that's even a thing) in celebration of National Handwriting Day. And yes, I created it on a computer, so please don't tell the Handwriting Police!

Trixie the Witch and her Halloween Tricks - Episode 13: Perfect Cobweb Potion (100 words)

Welcome to the show my creepy crones and conjurers.

It's Halloween and cobweb potion is a must for repelling those annoyingly cute trick-or-treaters.

The trick to perfect cobweb potion is using quality cobwebs.

The trick to getting quality cobwebs is finding giant spiders.

The trick to finding giant spiders is going deep into the haunted forest.

The trick to going deep into the haunted forest is not getting eaten by giant spiders.

The trick to not getting eaten by giant spiders is running away empty-handed and giving out candy to those irritatingly cute kids again this year.

Everyone needs an alter-ego!


Frank Frent is just an everyday ordinary mild-mannered actuary whose secret identity isn't that of any super hero who might go by a name that rhymes with beinerban or freinerfan or anything like that. Yup, just a normal average guy going about his business analyzing statistics and calculating insurance risks. Not fighting crime or going up against his arch-enemy whose name might rhyme with bubble-X.

National Doughnut Day!


What better way to celebrate National Doughnut Day than to plug my self-published alphabet book, A Rather Round Alphabet, which features a tasty looking doughnut for the letter D? Okay, yes, a better way to celebrate National Doughnut Day would be to eat a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts in one sitting, but it was a rhetorical question. You can find my fun little book at Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Rather-Round-Alphabet-Francis-Poesy/dp/1520775849

Weiner Man and Double Trouble


I doodle a lot. And sometimes I like a doodle so much I decide to make a version of it in Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop. This is Weiner Man and his Arch-nemesis, Double Trouble (aka Double X (the X is for trouble (he always has to explain that which makes him more grumpy))). And sometimes I feel like I need to make up some stories about my doodles. We'll see where this leads. Below is the original doodle, which I did in pencil and then inked over with an Extra Fine Point Sharpie.

The Scariest Thing!

(91 words)

My mom is a witch.
She cackles and screeches
And stirs her black cauldron.

She doesn't scare me.

My dad is a werewolf.
He is covered in hair
And he howls at the moon.

He doesn't scare me.

My sister is a ghost.
She shrieks in the night
And wanders through walls.

She doesn't scare me.

My brother is a bat.
He has sharp pointy teeth
And a terrible bite.

He doesn't scare me.

My teacher is human.
She makes my spine shiver.
 'Cause she can give homework,

On Halloween night!
