Vampire cartoons rise from the dust in my bathroom walls

I‘ve been sketching in notebooks since I could hold a pen…here’s a sketch that my cat ate — her new name is Ms. Hater or Ms.-Thing-makes-art-better (you be the judge)

Inspiration is like that weird dude who shows up uninvited — when you least expect it, um, like say — when you’re finishing-your-business-in-the-bathroom…’few months ago I saw a vampire on my bathroom. yeah…most people would say that’s just dust “go clean your bathroom
and I’d reply: judge much, hey judge-judy maybe I really really like Vampires?

Here’s the vampire I saw — again, just a dust patch near the bathroom window — but before I cleaned it away forever I sketched what I saw on a yellow post-it note

and later this

Same thing happen a week later, here’s the pic I snapped of the dust from my bathroom — tell me what you see — and yeah, if you’re wondering I did eventually clean up that dust somewhat afterwards:

If you’re like me you saw a Cat-that-thinks-she’s-a-Vampire, or something like this:

I now have two characters in my growing Vampire family, I’m sure they’ll be tweaked as I re-draw, streamlined into something easy to draw as I draw them more and form them into fully formed characters (at least in my mind) that I will use for the the weekly web cartoon strip.
