Today, I want to share with you 10 more fun, crazy, and uncommon things I have drawn on. When I was gathering my photos for my post 10 Fun Things To Doodle On, I realized I have doodled on lots of things. So here is a list of more things to doodle on and a little bit about each one.

1. Toothpick

I took a Micron pen size 005 to the thickest toothpick I could find, and my teeth have never been the same.

2. Mannequin

A friend of mine bought a bunch of mannequins from a clothing store that was closing down. I spray painted a female one with silver then doodled all over it. If you walked in while I was drawing on some parts of this piece…it would of been awkward. Ah the things I go through for art…ha ha ha.

3. Apple

After drawing on a banana, it was only natural to draw on an apple. The shiny surface of the fruit made it very easily for the paint markers to do it’s thing. A doodle apple a day…keeps the sanity away…muhahaha.

4. Teapot

I found myself at an estate sale searching for something I can draw on to donate to the Union City Historical Museum, and this teapot found me. The kind people of the estate sale didn’t even charge me anything for it…I think it’s because I said it was going to be in the local museum. Maybe I should say that more often.

5. Vinyl Record Sleeve

I was hanging out with my girlfriend at a used book store, and stumbled upon shelves of used vinyl records for about $0.50 to $1.00 a piece. So we went through all the records looking for the best ones suited for doodling. This one was my first one and one of my followers, Turtle Candace, quickly emailed me and bought it when she saw it. Thanks Candace!

6. Vinyl Toy

This doodled up Munny was one of the earliest pieces where I drew on objects. It taught me a lot about how to draw on curved shapes and hard to paint marker places.

7. Bike

A friend of my curators, really wanted me to doodle on her white bike. So one Sunday she stopped by with her bike and commissioned me to doodle on it. It now matches her car’s license plates! Thanks Turtle Laurie!

8. Ketchup Packet

My fellow artist isketchupp on Instagram suggested/challenged me to draw on ketchup packets. So I did.

9. Rock

I don’t remember what compelled me to draw on a rock, but I do remember it being fairly fun and easy. Turtles Rock!

10. Hotel Fire Escape Door

Thanks to fellow artist, Gun-Woo-Pak, for asking me to draw on a wall with him at the Hotel des Arts in San Francisco. I ended up drawing on the fire escape door, and it actually appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover: San Francisco for about one second.

What fun, crazy, or uncommon thing would you suggest to draw on?

This past Sunday, I got to draw on Laurie’s bike. This was the first time I drew on a bike and was excited to doodle it up.

Here are the 3 easy steps I took to draw on a bike:
1. Wipe clean the area of the bike and remove the tires if possible.
2. Use decocolor fine tip and broad tip paint markers to draw on bike laid on ground.
3. Spray the painted area of bike with krylon low odor clear finish outdoors.
