Into the Mind of a Criminal

…that is, if not paying attention in class were a crime, this would be insight into the mind of a criminal. As it is, it’s just insight from the mind of Me, Karen, from So less a criminal and more a slacker.

And it’s not so much insight either…During class, rather than take notes or pay attention the way ordinary students do, I let my mind frolic off into the recesses of memory, imagination, and sleep-deprived stupidity. And in my hand, I keep a pencil. While other students write their notes, I scribble and doodle and make weird images, and by the time I’m done, I’m not even sure why, what they mean, or how long it took me to draw them.

I have literally filled whole notebooks with this junk. It makes time pass like a charm. A papery, time-passing charm.

So I thought it’d be cool to share with you the drawings that come out of my head on days like these. If you like them, maybe I’ll make a routine thing out of giving them to you now and again. If you hate them…hey…it’s not a video right?

Without further ado, sketches from Karen’s notebook:

“Bunny and Butterfly”
bunny and butterfly
…he knows what he did.


“Nihilist Gastropod”

See? I don’t get it either, it’s just what happens when you let your mind wander off into space with paper and pencil. But, flipping through the pages, I think I’m most confused by this one:


I’m not sure why I drew ham and a dinosaur. I don’t think I meant for them to go together as a total image, but that’s how I’ll present them.

And this has been, Into the Sketches of Karen’s Notebook.

    I don’t know why, but the snail really tickled me. You should get it cleaned up, make it larger and turn it into a wallpaper! hehe

    An unconscious association, perhaps, between the mighty and very real (though now extinct) apatasaur and the entirely fraudulent and fictitious “Creation Science Museum,” founded and run by Ken … Hamm?

    dinosaur w/giant ham reminds me of the opening sequence of the flintstones when the giant bronto ribs are loaded into the car at the drive in brontoburger place.

    so maybe it’s a before and after. before: bronto. after: brontoham.

    I think it’s a giant ham falling from the sky onto a dinosaur, just moments before impact.
