The Daily Monigote

Does the world need yet another blog featuring naked or semi-naked cartoon females?
I'm afraid the answer is YES!

Starting today I'm posting one sketch per day for the rest of my natural life (or until I get tired) I have created a blog called "Scribblettes" for just that purpose, I will continue to post art and rantings here as usual but the roughs, messed up, experimental crap will be shown there. I'm doing this to force myself to draw something each and every day. You can check the "One -A-Day Scribblette" at: http://scribblettes.blogspot.com

1.- Doll, puppet or grotesque figurine: "They pinned a monigote on his back on April fools".

2.- Human or animal figurine, painted, drawn or made from any type of material, usually created for fun: "The child drew two monigotes and he said those were his parents".

3.- Person deemed insignificant, either physically or morally: "And who do these monigotes think they are to order me around?", a person with very low self esteem, easily manipulated by others: "You're nothing but a pathetic and worthless monigote, you make me sick!".

4.- Small child: "Let's see, monigote: what do you want me to draw for you?"

NOTE: It's also used as a term of endearment: "These monigotes are so cute!"

he, he, you can find a accurate description of this word here:

Diccionario de la Real Academia de la Lengua Española

Monigote rules!

Thank you, Rubio 2D!

I feel validated by the Royal Academy of The Spanish Language, LOL!!

I've always liked the word "monigotes" and also the word "gusarapo", don't ask me why, they just sound so fuckin' cool, my granny used to call me "gusarapo de pipa" because I never could stand still for a minute.

Your girls are just mind blowing to see, so styling, bold, hot and aggressive I wish my own girls looked half as good. P.s thanks for taking the to drop in the last time.

rubio2d said...

Gusarapo! Great word too.
The daily monigote/doodle is a fantastic idea...maybe I'll do something like this. Vote For a world full of semi-naked cartoon girls!
Love this scribblette.

I'm really impressed with your stuff man. You have so many talents all wrapped up into one. You can really tell you spent a lot of thought and effort into making each sketch/piece into it's own idea. What can I say man, I really enjoy your work. I will bookmark your blog and make sure I keep comin' back for more. Thanks for the coffee breaks in the morning, REALLY fun stuff.

If you get time, please check out my blog and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Sweet. I'm going to link "scribblets" on my page too. If it's alright with you.

Process Junkie said...

rickgo: Hey, man! how you be? long time, etc., etc., nice to hear from you, we gotta hang one of these days, I don't do Sketchkult, but I'm starting my own sketch group in New York called " The NYDP" , it'll be cool if you join us.

The Original Dangster: OK, good! for a second there I thought my drawings make you cry, you being so sentimental and all.

Berni: Gracias por la mención en tu blogo, me encantaron tus tiras, mi frase favorita: "Visahueaa!". Ya te reciproqué con un enlace.

Salúdame a Jimy y al resto de los que me conocen en el Yoyo :))

Melinda: Thank you, do as you wish.

Judging by the reaction, the daily scribblette seems like a good idea, thank you, all for the support and encouragement.

. . . And now the bad news, everytime you look at a new daily scribblette, $25.00 will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account.

Nice man. Hey we did the exact same thing a Sketch everyday in one of my class we only did it for one semester though. But yeah we had to do one Sketch from Life a day then turn in our books at the end of the semesters. It's a really good habit and it works to work out them Skills. Your stuff is amazing man!!!
