“Musical Mismatch” by Millie Ho.
Can’t afford braces on a musician’s salary.
Well, at least he can afford your book. You make me want to get out my sketch book and have fun.
Thanks, Thomas. Do let me know when/if you sketch!
Loved it Millie!
i love the detail in work, millie. would love to share on google plus if you would add the widget :`)
Thank you, J! Would add the widget but there are no options at the moment. The mention is appreciated, though. :)
LOVE this!! Just love your imagination.
PS – Believe me … I feel his pain. ;)
Thank you, Ann!
according to the space age dictionary, milly-esque drawings are “able to merge the ancient and never seen before to produce limitless sketch and haiku evoking comic-ironic illumination.”
and this one bears a wonderful resemblance to a walrus with piano keys
instead of the customary drum sticks they usually wear in the photos i’ve seen.
the altered province of the mind …is there anywhere else to be?
Thanks for the space age dictionary paraphrasing, Steve. The piano is the drum’s natural counterpart (look inside a grand piano).
lots of metal like strings and wood pedals and anytime someone played the outside keys,
a strange tap dance began under the awning.
Perhaps if he ate some rabbit food? :)
He’ll have a sizeable venue to show for it. :)
The eyes are so engaging you hardly notice the need for braces! :)
This character has soul. Fantastic work, Millie!
Thank you, Karen!
Great sketch. It reminds me of Dr. Zoidberg on Futurama. Have you seen the series?
Thanks, Ron! And I know what you mean–maybe a subconscious rendering.
It happens. Then again, I might be reading into things too much, like seeing elephants in clouds, at night.
Elephants in clouds at night? Fascinating, and a less ugh-inducing image than “I wear my sunglasses at night”.
I see people wearing sunglasses at night quite often. I do it myself occasionally. It’s difficult to see when driving.
Wonderful! The imagination behind this is magical!
So it turns out music can be finagled from the relative sizes of the keys drawn – http://soundcloud.com/thrig/musical-mismatch-doodle-draft and https://github.com/thrig/compositions/blob/master/dmm/musical-mismatch-doodle.pdf
Thank you for the composition, Jeremy. This is fascinating! Will have to attempt on the piano.
I thought of Zoidberg too, but yours is SO much cooler.
I will call him Piano Face.
Piano Face tunes his own keys with floss.
such an expressive little sketch
That is crazy good!!
Thank you, Mike!
Dear Millie, I didn’t know what to expect, but even so, you surprised me! So funny, and so creative!
