This post aims to receive response by floating the proposal of Mindful Doodles comic strip. I used to run Mindful Doodles, for about 500 posts. I’m floating the idea of continuing Mindful Doodles, or Picture Journal, in comic strip format. What do you think?


Dream of Immigrants

If you dream of immigrants, it could be a dream based on themes you experienced about them, during your day.

Dream interpretation fox

If you were dreaming of fox, it might mean a warning against sly people in your waking reality. You may have received stimuli from people who showed “foxy” behaviors and this triggered this dream.

If you work in a zoo, or somewhere with fox/ foxes, then dreaming of seeing a fox does not hold special meaning.

Fox would like to meet his vixen. (From art/ writing prompt)

This is a comic I made last August. I wanted to try simple scripting, drawing and coloring. On hindsight, I should have written a different storyline … one with a real plot. I’ll try to rewrite this comic into a very short one. I’m thinking of a single frame picture. Without further ado, here’s

Where’s Freddy, the window blinds salesman?

40% discount on window blinds, blinded by offer.
Booking appointment to make blinds.
That feeling when you are denied service because manpower is down. Window Blind Woes.
Third day is the day you get a reply.
Finally, after 9 days, an appointment is fixed on the 10th day.
He cancels appointment in the late afternoon. After we had waited the whole day.
Salesman gives obliging reply that he’ll arrange for appointment.
Salesman took flight and didn’t make appointment.
Agitated, angry and giving up on salesman who didn’t keep appointment.
Salesman finally keeps promise to “arrange” appointment for on-site measurement.
Salesman Freddy finally makes an appointment to come for measurement.
After 12 days, we finally meet Freddy the roller blinds salesman.
Salesman didn’t bring samples/ swatches of fabrics.
Buyer has to visit store to make instant electronic payment for order of roller blinds.

Hey, Freddy! If you see this, give me a shout. Your window blinds are working well. Except for the bedroom blinds, whose drawstring should have been installed on the left side, instead of the right. The installation guys messed up.

If this comic was rewritten into a one frame picture, it would be like this:
