On Wednesday Miss Doodle told her secretary that she wanted to organize a fashion show with big models because she has had enough of thin models and now wanted to honour big people.
The secretary buckled to work immediately. She looked into her casting files and saw that there were only very thin stickpeople models. She isn't afraid of anything when it comes to drawing, so she sat down in her studio and worked on her idea, "a big stickpeople model". Easy, she thought. I just have to draw it, work on the details and then present the finished drawing to Miss Doodle.
Here are some of the sheets:
On the left you can see Miss Doodle in front of pictures taken on a show a day before. On the right side in the background you can see the secretary's first draft of big model. But, said Miss Doodle, this isn't a stickpeople model. Ok, thought the secretary, so, let's do better. What if I draw a big model and give it stick-arms and stick-legs? Then it should belong to the stickpeople.
Said and done, this is what it looks like. Far too childish, said Miss Doodle, I want a woman and not a child.
Ok, ok.... Well, this one is better. Hmmm......thought the secretary, I will name her Poppy. She looks nice, big and nice. But the sticklegs and stickarms do not fit with the rest, do they, said Miss Doodle. Look at her!
Miss Doodle was right. As always. The secretary finally had to admit that this was a dead-end. Well, when caught in a creative process, you say, this happens...
You cannot draw big people with nothing on their arm- and legbones.
So Miss Doodle and the secretary decided to keep the idea of a fashion show for big models in mind, but to organize things in a different way! And they already have a idea:)
