Something Fishy

I am in the middle of a few projects at the moment,
and haven't really got anything to show you...
So I thought I'd let you see some more of my silly fish,
like the ones in my header. I have a whole range of silly fish.
They are for my greeting card range called
'Something Fishy'. I need to go back to them sometime.

(Just noticed that I seem to favour the left facing fish.

They suffer from the same directional problem as my birds!)

Here's a couple of corny jokes...
What happened to the shark who swallowed a bunch of keys ?
He got lockjaw !
What do you get from a bad-tempered shark ?
As far away as possible
...and now, let me suffer you to a limerick!
There was a young fish named Belushi,
Who was terribly bossy and pushy,
One day he pushed too far,
And was caught in a jar,
Now he's on someones plate as some Sushi!

This last image is my Something Fishy Logo Fish


  1. Hey there, these cartoons/illustrations are adorable. Your "something fishy" is going to do great. I love the the little red pencil fish! How creative!!!

  2. oh how cute Doda!!! I have to share those jokes with my boys later:) Guess what? I received my wonderful package from you and I absolutely adore my bird!!! Thank you SO very much...I will treasure it always!!! Thanks for the sweet note too:) It was such a thrill to win!!!

    BIG xoxoxox...jenn

  3. I love your fish and I don't mind that they suffer from "left-ism" because after all, it's their best side - just ask them and they will confirm what I am saying! lol

  4. Hi Doda, thanks for following my blog:)

  6. recipe on ther have a yummy time. Love your fish by the way very cutexx

  7. your little fish are so fun and colorful! :)

  8. You crack me up Doda!

    I too favour the left facing fish/birds/horses etc when drawing. Come to think of it, I favour going left when rollerskating as well - couldn't quite co-ordinate the leg cross-overs when cornering right.

    They are just delightful - love that use of colour!

  9. These are adorable. I especially love the last one!:)

  10. They are cute. I'm sure they're just following the tide.

  11. Doda,
    I saw your question on mayamade about using paints on stamps, and I have done that for some time now and have had good luck using cosmetic sponges (dabbing on until totally covered) and foam rollers (not too wet and roll until totally covered) I hope this helps.

  12. Thanks everyone.
    And thanks Diane for the helpful hints.

  13. Doda I am having a giveaway and if you haven't already come and enter it. It'll be open until 2:00 p.m. (CST) tomorrow.

  14. These are so cool!
    You know, it's funny - now you mention it, I always paint left facing creatures too!

  15. Love the fish!! How cute are they!
    The one for the Something Fishy logo is great!! :)

  16. Doda... LOVE the fish... they make me smile! And I love Peekiboo... how fun!

    You are right about how my new studio look has fired up my creativity... I've already got a few new projects going and loving it! I hope to be sharing some more studio makeover photos today or tomorrow... you'll have to stop by!

    Bless you my friend!

  17. I adore your silly fishy's! Check out the art journal illustrations on my blog - our drawings could go together! I found you on Martha Lever's blog link thing. I LOVE your art work!
