Cindy Loo You!


I am delighted that my friend, Tom Radcliffe and I have set up – well mostly Tom – a website for our experimental work, Cindy Loo You, (formerly “What if”) which evolved on this blog in a very jazz-like way. We have done some tweaking and formatting and there is new material… It will be even more fun and easy to read with the images and poems together on each page. The posting schedule is twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays so check it out regularly!

We are also working on a Brand New Project! More information to come…

what if – part 23 – grand finale!

Cindy's Bar & Grill, and Snorkeling Emporium!

Well, here we are… Some Time later… It looks like Cindy has set herself up nicely and peaceful relations are well established. And look – here comes Coracle for a visit!

This is the last one in the series and it took a while to put together – I hope you enjoy! It is a larger picture than usual so be sure to click on it to see all the details! I will be going back to something simpler for a while on the blog after this… and there is a new upcoming project which I start doing doodles and sketches for soon.

There may be a slight delay in receiving the final part of our story since our poet is a bit busy this week but check back starting Thursday – I’m sure it will tie all the loose threads together in a most hilarious and satisfying way!

UPDATE: You’ll find the final poem in the comments – and I’m sure you’ll love it!

what if – part 4…

completely dazzled!

After reading Tom’s most recent Seuss-ian poetic offering (see previous comments) I immediately had this image in my head of Cindy Lou listening enthralled to tales from the stranger’s travels. I have a sketch from one of those tales started as well, but even though I’m having way too much fun doing these drawings, one per day is all I can manage!

Here’s a link to a random amusing strip from Patches. (Maybe particularly amusing for some of my friends…) Enjoy!

what if – part 3…

googly eyes...

And we’re off on another crazy literary romp led by Tom Radcliffe in the comments… Thanks Tom!

I thought we’d just pause before heading off to help out the Grinch with his home decorating troubles – or whatever it was. Obviously Cindy Lou wanted to get dressed up to impress the handsome stranger – and his morse… I think they make a cute trio!

today’s doodle – what if – part 2…

Mount Crumpet Estates!

Following on from last week… what if the evil Cindy Lou is a successful developer who is working over the beautiful natural features of Who-ville for her own benefit?!  And who could that possibly be riding out to the sales office on a horned wannabeast?

This image is not exactly what I had in my mind – I still have to hone my skills to get there… one day!

Here’s a link to someone who has his skills already completely coordinated! Although it’s just getting started, it is interesting enough to keep one tuned while the story unfolds – check out reMIND! … and there’s a cat! (sort of)…

UPDATE: To be entertained by a Seuss inspired commentary… you won’t be disappointed if you check the second instalment of our little story in the comments!

today’s doodle – what if…

Cindy Lou who??

I have come down with one of those spring colds… blargh! and hacgh! anyway, as a result I have not been doodling and so I was looking through old doodles for something to post and found this one. Did Cindy Lou Hoo grow up evil?? She looks strangely Grinch-like!… very suspicious hmmm…

…checking out the poetic response in the comments is highly recommended!
