Me, Myself and I

Testing, testing. One-two. Hello? Is this thing on? Ah, it’s yourselves. Hello and welcome to part one of Doodle’s Special Edition #sundaypics. Mr Wombat was kind enough to put me at the helm for a couple of weeks while he and @little_mavis frolicked around Scotchland. My follower numbers instantly shot up by about 25 as a result, such is the power the bearded one holds over Twitterland. Like Don Corleone. Or Professor Doom off of Wizbit. Anyway, after donning the spangly #sundaypics jacket I hastily tore open the golden envelope to reveal the first topic of my tenure to be ‘Self Portrait’. Without further ado, here are the results of the #sundaypics jury. Mr Wombat normally does these in the order they arrive on Sunday, and I had intended to follow suit, but then, like a pillock, copied them into a folder and they went all alphabetical on my ass, so here they are in no particular order. This dreadful blog template is already beginning to bake my noodle, with its postage stamp sized window and lunacy at bringing new pictures in at the top of the page, so I’m gonna do these in chunks…

First up let’s grab your attention with some gratuitous nudity, courtesy of @aMeadey. It’s a good job @wombat37 was away, or else her erotic sand self portrait would have made him explode n that. Ahh, now I come to think about it, I definitely remember that @jamerz3294 was an eager little beaver and first out of the traps, so next up is his jaunty self, fully bedecked with kilt and kilt-related accessories. Then we have @BestofTimes’ moody monochrome effort in which he appears to have just finished a day down t’pit, contrasted with @xkylet’s smiley entry, grin probably due to the corking headwear.

Playing Dr Frankenstein for a sec, I’ve spliced the @greythorne (eyes) and @heidivodka (luscious lips) pics into a Jolie-esque hybrid. No need with @Ironthighs, who has done all the work for me, creating a collaged version of herself that both scares and attracts in equal measure, with its huge mouth and mesmerising pendulous jubblies.

More photographic entries now: saturated (and ever so slightly serial killerish πŸ˜‰ @thom_white, paired with an orange and blue hued @SplashHash…
…a beer goggled @Snowgirl1972, @OnTheUpbeat starring in Pleasantville II…
…a hooded @MacJude, a scary inverse @louwiseman, a foxy looking @janegoth…
…a great underwater pic of @fraggle_red23, @ed_moose snapping back ‘atcha, and a grumpy @Crofty, post-Ikea shenanigans…
The next batch of mystery men (and women) come ‘atcha in a still-photographic-but-more-obscure manner. @OldMotherRiley posted this shadowy entry, just before the dashingly handsome @captain_doodle also got in on the shadow action with his Indy-inspired effort. Next up is a glimpse of @Boolbar in the mirror, and a mysteriously misty @davidgilray, possibly with gun to head (or it could be a shaver or summat)
Now we take a stroll over to the gallery with Tony Hart for a look at some of your art, which will NOT BE RETURNED. I never understood the Hart Beat/Take Hart non-return policy, and it’s probably why I never sent anything in. “Please send in your art, kids, but we’ll not be able to return it. Instead it’ll just be put in an incinerator and set alight whilst Tony and Mr Bennett dance naked around it, laughing maniacally” Anyway, first up are @CptHolster, @SuzyQStafford and @white76’s lovely minimalist doodlings, followed by some hand-drawn art from @JohnRands_TMTL (looking very superhero-esque), another @white76, this time in a pencil crayon stylee, @watty62’s inked self portrait, and an excellent caricature from @intruth…

What do ya mean ‘there’s more’? Blimey. This is a full-time job. OK, onwards…
Nice, slightly Boosh, etched-looking effort from @fwimmer, followed swiftly by some beautiful art from @Lucydoux, although I wonder if she takes the bus wearing that. Moving onto some computerised entries, we have @liam54 (with evil twin sitting on shoulder ;)…

…@CymraesCoch looking very sexy in her A Scanner Darkly-style portrait, A Simpsons version of @flossieTP, a stylised @xkylet, and the god-like @captain_doodle with a Julian Opie inspired self portrait.

Next up, in surrealist corner, is a wonderful pic from the delicious looking @FBishWife, @little_mavis’s holiday essence, a cheeky little @lucyhg page corner doodle…

…@mrsactive’s sporty garden collage, and @Boolbar’s fab fruity face…

Last, but by no means least, we have @inhumanbeing’s ‘frazzled’ timeline…

…@thom_white terrorising the plants in moulded blue dude form, a wee Wii @white76, a bear from @mikeybaer…

…@shelley279 feeling dog rough with germs, and, finally, @captain_doodle, the saviour of the universe, with a fitting lego self portrait. Ooh, one more: how could I forget our glorious leader, @wombat37, with a great little sketch…

Strewth, now I remember why I don’t normally do blogs. Where do y’all find the time?! πŸ™‚

About wombat37

A Yorkshireman in the green hills of Lancashire, UK Not a real wombat, obviously, or typing would become an issue. I do have short legs and a hairy nose, however. Oh, & a distinctive smell.
