Dopey: EDM Weekly Challenge

The Everyday Matters Weekly Challenge this week is to draw a toy. Not being much of a toy person, I considered drawing my skis, my bike, my jeep ... then I remembered my old Dopey doll somewhere up in a cabinet. Not really my style of drawing, but it was fun to visit with ole' Dope a while. Dopey is a well worn, truly dirty and loved old toy! Molded plastic face with soft head and body -- Gund Mfg Co, ca. 1958-60. Posted by Hello

Let me guess, Dopey belonged originally to your grandmother! :)

I like your drawings....

Annie -- uh, yeah, that's it, my grandmother's ... that's the story and I'm stickin' to it! (Wow -- I hadn't thought to exploit that particular advantage of the internet ...) :-D

I just love Dopey. Such great color and his face is darling. :)

I love the way that this challenge has encouraged participants to dig into their past and come up, not only with drawings, but also with stories.

Your approach to this drawng is interesting. You have drawn attention to the face, which is quite cute, by blurring the rest of the figure. Most enjoyable!
