A Doodle Narrative

While doodling this image my goal (as far as I can remember, and to the extent I even had a goal), was to see how many visual clichés I could cram into one phony comics page: I wanted closeups, long shots and silhouettes; thought and dialogue balloons, speed lines, labels, exclamatory words and symbols; one non sequitur after another, etc., etc. Actually, now that I think about it, other than the pleasure it gave me to doodle it, the whole exercise was pointless. Which, I guess, is the pure purpose of doodling in the first place. Anyway, I like it. Someday I may even do a cleaner version and try to pass it off as finished “art.” (Click image for a larger view.)
