Tie-Kite Chess Appleball Branches

This is an odd doodle that I came up with the other day. I felt like drawing but didn't have anything in particular that I wanted to draw, and I ended up with this. There's not a whole lot of meaning to it, but I like that it reminds me of Salvador Dali's famous painting with all the melting clocks. The necktie in the middle was originally going to be a road, all wavy and weird, but then I decided to make it a tie instead. I had an art project in college where I had to designate symbols for the things and people in my life that I loved (oh, art class...) and it led me to designate that an apple would be my mom's official symbol (because she really loves apples and they always remind me of her), and home plate would be my dad's (because of his love for baseball.) It was a weird assignment. But the point is, sometimes I still work apples and home plates into my pages of doodles, and I like that it's like a little secret code of love for my mom and dad. Like a doodle shout-out in parent hieroglyphics!
