It’s been a while since I wrote a “heylo” post, and since I’ve been getting a lot of anon questions lately, I figured I could do one. AND PEOPLE WHO ASK ANON QUESTIONS— I don’t usually post questions on my site. Like, I’ve done it once maybe. You will (most likely) simply not get an answer to your query if you ask it anonymously. I don’t MIND anon asks, not at all, but I don’t post asks in general because it would seriously clutter up my site. Just so you knowwwwwww but feel free to send whatever ya like!
I don’t know if I should do a FAQ, but some questions tend to come up repeatedly so I’ll answer some here.
IS YOU A BOY OR IS YOU A GIRL?
I is somewhat obviously 100% boy. I feel it’s clear from my writing and colouring, since I think both got gobs of boyishness, but it’s a compliment that some wonder about my gender I guess!
WHERE IS YOU FROM?
I am from Portland, Oregon (in the Northwest corner of the USA), but I currently live in Los Angeles. I am a writer here, full-time.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR IDEAS/INSPIRATION?
It’s a common but good n’ tough question! I don’t know. I think people either have ideas or they don’t, but if you’re creative you can practice and hone your abilities to have more ideas come to you, and easily. When I think up a phrase, an image, or an idea, I always immediately write it down in my idea-notepad. In there I have over 1000+ Doodle ideas to use in the future.
I prefer to think up a Doodle that day and do the new idea, since they tend to energize me more, but if nuthin’ good came up that I wanna do, I page through the idea-pad and something always catches my eye in there (or forms a new idea).
HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE? WHAT TABLET/PENS/PROGRAM DO YOU USE?
I don’t use a tablet, EVERYTHING is hand-drawn and coloured by myself. I only use Picmonkey to round the corners.
What I do is, is think up a Doodle and then I draw it in pencil (sometimes doing a test drawing in my idea-notepad), then I ink it with inking pens (normally Micron), colour in everything with mostly coloured pencils (normally Crayola, nothing fancy) and sometimes markers and highlighters. I often get my materials from local 99 cent stores.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE? ARE YOU UGLY?
I am maybe the cutest boy in the galaxy SEEEEEEEEE—
This is my most recent picture, on the way to see Harry Potter. Yup, I’m wearing the same shirts I wrote in my ABOUT ME long ago. My “ABOUT ME” explains why I started The Daily Doodles, and has a gif of me dancing a jig. (I only have about 3 pairs of shirts, so excuse me for wearing the same one twice geez.)
I LOVE YOU PLEASE MARRY ME?
Ok ;-) winky smile
I love talking with EVERYONE here, so please send in any questions you like and I’ll always answer them to the best of my abilities. I quite honestly love everyone who looks at these silly drawings and stories, and I appreciate your support and interest TREMENDOUSLY.
Love you all, especially you,
David Michael Chandler (DMC), a Boy.
