this is the original noodie doodle ..
by original i mean one of the first i doodled on a mac in 89.  i was fairly new to macs, to computers really, and was experimenting with a drawing program for a first time.  i came across the image recently when i was looking through an old portfolio.  i have one printed copy.  i also have the floppy disk it was stored on, you know, one of those old 3" x 5" thingies.   the image in the post below was based on this.
i've been dealing with stupid blood pressure issues for a couple of days now, so in order to distract myself i've been doodling and messing around..

I can plainly see the girl, but, I also see the beach picture you had on there from the end of last Summer (if indeed, that's when you flashed us with the beach picture. Sometimes my internal clock is flooped)

I mean, it so looks like the beach picture, I'de almost be willing to bet that when I look at it again, I will have a hard time finding the woman....

boneman said...

....ok ok.
No. When I went back, she was still there.
Her left breast looks to be pressed by her left arm, somehow.
But...
Bloodpressure issues?
Take them to the beach.
Just pass the kids to Mr. Man and go, or, even better, pack up Mr. Man and the rug-rats and all of ya slip out for some LIFE!
Sure, there's no swimming, but, less worries about the kids, eh?
In fact...
(and if I lived there, you could call on me for that very thing) get a babysitter for the rest of the week-end, and you and Mr. Man go to the beach.
Take a tent and one sleeping bag.

Live a LIFE for crying out loud.
(and a little wine wouldn't hurt, either)

Floppy 3x5 thingies sound dirty to my dirty mind.

Take a vacation. Come to India the land of a 1000 cultures!

foam said...

yeah ..
the image is kind of watery looking.
i remember when i did this image that i was rather delighted with discovering how to crop and i moved those breasts all over the place.

going to the beach would be nice but it's not doable right now. we are going in august, however. and believe me .. i drink wine .. a dry red wine too .. so, that's not the problem.
the problem was having forgotten to take my bp meds a couple of days ago. this has happened once before and i did what the doc recommended which was to take more, relax and then continue the next day with the regular dosage. well, it ain't working this time. i have to take way more then i'm used to to keep it down.

foam said...

sj,
my dear young man ..
everything sounds dirty to your mind .. :)
and that's one of the reasons i'm fond of ya.. lol ..
india, eh? sounds very tempting actually ..

Lovely Foam.

I remember those floppy disk (I think SJ is far too young to know of the existence) and still have an ultra old Mac I use as a word processor. I think those floppies still work on there. It also has a Zip Drive. All of those have gone out of the window.

The other version of that drawing is just brilliant.

ok mrs high blood pressure, you need a break! If not India, come to Philly! hehehe (Although I would love to go to India!)

Hope you feel better soon!

Aggie said...

Take care of yourself Foamy. Hopefully doddling is relaxing for you and that will help bring down the BP.
You moved the boobies all over the place? The mind boggles!

boneman said...

Middle Ditch, if you throw your Mac out the window, does that mean we call it Windows?

ANNA-LYS said...

ANNA-LYS said...

The Phosgene Kid said...

Looks like a beaver pond to me. I have hypertension, the drugs help a lot.

J Cosmo Newbery said...

Yea Mac!

I, too, prefer the coloured version.

foam said...

middle ditch,
ja .. that sj is a whipper snapper alright .. :)
i think we probably have an old mac carcass somewheres in our junk ...
:)

helene,
let's all go to india!! :)

phos..
the meds usually help ..
but something is going haywire this weekend .. :)

cosmo,
macs are a good thing ..

anyway .. next time i'm further north .. i'll call again and we'll see if we can't meet.

aggie ..
the doodling is pretty relaxing ..
and yes, the boobies were moved around .. :)

boneman .. you are silly .. lol ..

anna-lys ..
i will! i'm trying ..
and i'm O+ ...
and thanks for the tunes ..
i am trying to take it easy .. :)
<♡>

dianne said...

I hope you are feel better soon dear little Foaming sister of mine...you must not skip your blood pressure meds of all things they are so important...gotta take care of yourself sweetie...♡
Can you have a few days off work and just take some time out to do the things you love to do?
It might help.
We can go for a nice long walk together in the cool if you like. ♡

foam said...

dianne ..

belieeeeeeeeeve me ..
i don't forget that little pink pill on purpose ..
well, i'm definitely taking monday off to go see the doc ..
other than that i'll have to hang in there ..
i have lots of deadlines approaching.

i'd love to go for a walk!

dianne said...

Foamie dear I know you don't forget on purpose...we all get so busy sometimes we forget, I was concerned about you as you are paying the price now. :-)
Like most working Mums no doubt you have too many pressures and deadlines to meet and that doesn't help the blood pressure either.
I hope you get it under control soon and good luck at the doctors. ♡

foam said...

and that's exactly what happened ..
i got caught up in a rush that was not part of my normal routine ..

ANNA-LYS said...

Jo tack min sköna
jag mår mycket bra!

:-D

So the pressure is
of the too low kind, or?

Pamela said...

that is a very cool art form. (dual meaning there, huh?)

Merelyme said...

I almost didn't notice a woman lieing there! sorry to hear about your blood pressure. Do you ever doodle men?

I am thinking about buying a new computer...Macs are awful nice but so expensive. Are they worth it?

foam said...

anna-lys,
grattis!
(am i using the word correctly?)

and no, the pressure is of the high kind ..


pamela,
yes .. lol ..

merelyme ..
yes, i do doodle men ..
i have one posted ..
i might post him again..

foam said...

merelyme ..
oh and as far as macs go ..
to me they are worth it.

but if you are happy with you pc and it does what you need it to do, then i would just stick with that.

Middle Ditch said...

Boneman, no windows for me, thank you. And Foam is right, nothing can beat a Mac. Expensive, yes, but it's one payment. All applications are for free and you get updates regularly for free too.

Ruela said...

v. cool & dark ;)

foam said...

md ..
besides, my mac has been a workhorse ..
a bit slow at times since it's rather aged ..
but it's never crashed.

thanks, ruela ..
:)

whimsical brainpan said...

Very cool!

And there is nothing like doing art to soothe the soul and lower the BP.

foam said...

thanks ..
:)

laughingwolf said...

totally erotic, foamy :D

still a mac-er? i am, tho i have to use windbloze for some software :O lol

at one point my own bp was off the scales, since i started on meds for it, 2 1/2 years ago, no more probs, this morning it read 123/70

i need to lose more weight, too

hope you control yours

puerileuwaite said...

I shall leave the fantasy of making love on the beach to others. You have inspired me to make love TO the beach. Please don't judge me.

foam said...

pug,
making love on the beach is not all it's cracked up to be ..
and, no worries, i don't judge .. lol ..
be inspired to make love TO the beach all you want ..

foam said...

laughing wolf,
yes, i'm still a mac user.

i started on bp meds about 2 years ago. i really didn't need to loose weight though, but i hear that can help. a colleague of mine lost 40 pounds and was able to get off bp meds.

laughingwolf said...

40# is my goal...

will start walking again soon's the ice is gone :)

foam said...

wolf,
good luck with that then .. :)

Ricardo said...

Never mind you answered my question on the previous post. I have a mac myself but could never crank cool things like this out.
