Weird Wednesday: May 12. Cartoons

If you are new to Weird Wednesdays, it is my day to share some of my odd writings, or more often, my cartoons: “The Miniscules” and “The Untitled”.

Sometimes it’s hard to make yourself laugh. I have to admit, this one did.
I might have just watched the season finale of “The Curse of Oak Island”.

That’s all the weirdness for today.


Leon Stevens is a blogger, composer, artist, and an author of three books (so far): Lines by Leon: Poems, Prose, and Pictures, Journeys: Eight Original Pieces for Classical Guitar and The Knot at the End of the Rope and Other Short Stories.

Weird Wednesday: Cartoons

If you are new to Weird Wednesdays, it is my day to share some of my odd writings, or more often, my cartoons: “The Miniscules” and “The Untitled”.

Both showcase my odd sense of humor while minimizing my drawing skills.

Here is a short video that you may not have seen yet:

Weird Wednesday: Math and Cartoons

I like math. I’m not great at it, but it is fascinating. Like how the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter always gives you pi. And not just that, pi never ends. So, when you think about it, you’ll never be able to get an equal piece of that pie.

The other weird math thing I’d like to bring up is the nine’s times table. C’mon. Didn’t you have to memorize all the facts on the times table up to 12 X 12? (That’s 144, by the way). I still have to think about some of them. I remember all my doubles without thinking, but there are a few that just never stuck. Math would have been so much easier—and quicker— it I could remember all the facts.

Back to the nines. Do you see any pattern or relationship with the answers?

9X19 
9X218 
9X327 
9X436 
9X545 
9X654 
9X763 
9X872 
9X981 
If you already know this one, shhhh… If you figure it out, and you want to brag, leave a comment below. If you are stumped, I’ll tell you later, I promise.

I thought my Hide-and-Seek was only going to be a couple of cartoons. I was wrong. Here’s #4:

Monday’s Miniscules:

Weird Wednesday: Cartoons and a Guessing Game

I post “The Miniscules” on Instagram @lines_by_leon every Monday, but I’ll put them here on Wednesday as well.

Monday’s “Miniscule Monday” continuing the fairy tale theme.

I came across my Inktober sketches, but I have no idea what word each was supposed to represent. Do you?

Feel free to guess. I really don’t know.

I introduced a new cartoon two weeks ago. It didn’t have a name then. Let us welcome:

The Untitled

Part three:

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” If you are thinking that the humor has a familiar weirdness to it, you wouldn’t be mistaken. Any idea of the target of the homage?

Thanks for stopping by!

Weird Wednesday: Cartoons (again)

I post “The Miniscules” on Instagram @lines_by_leon every Monday, but I’ll put them here on Wednesday as well.

One thing I can kinda draw are books…
See?

Monday’s “Miniscule Monday”…

Last week, I introduced a new cartoon. It didn’t have a name then. Let us welcome:

The Untitled

Continuing the childhood game theme:

Ooh, fancy border.

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” If you are thinking that the humor has a familiar weirdness to it, you wouldn’t be mistaken. Any idea of the target of the homage?

Thanks for stopping by!

Sometimes my ideas make me laugh out loud. This was one of them.
Let’s never speak of it again…
I love crosswords!

I had this thought, and it was appropriately weird.

Thanks for stopping by!

Weird Wednesday

Getting close to being caught up with all “The Miniscules” to date. There will be a few more Wednesdays before you will be getting the current weekly serving of hilarity. Of course, you can always catch Miniscule Monday on Instagram @lines_by_leon

After The Masters The loss of a beloved actor
Do you like puzzles? I do!

No verse for the creatures this week, just a query.

Careless, but what has them spooked?

Hope you enjoy my creations!

Weird Wednesday

Last Wednesday I shared the origins trailer that I put together: “The Miniscules: Origins” .I’ll let you get caught up.

Back? Nice. Here is the next installment of the Miniscules recap.

Yes, I posted one twice. Just copied it from my old site.
This one still makes me laugh. I don’t know why, it’s not that funny…
October. Get it?
The last one didn’t involve any ‘scules, but I needed to draw it. Thank you, Alex.

And finally, no Weird Wednesday would be complete without some “creatures”

Left alone to their own devices
Survival is inevitable
Adaptation is necessary
To perish not an option

Weird enough for ya?

-Leon

Weird Wednesday: The Miniscules-Origins

When I started The Miniscules it was just an avenue for some strange ideas that I had in my head. sometimes they got into predicaments because of their size, then later they became embroiled with current events. With a bit of time on my hands, and in answer to many queries like, “Where did the Miniscules come from?”, I decided to use my rudimentary skills to produce what I like to call: “a waste of a few hours of my day…

Now to continue your refresher of The Miniscules so far:

I changed my Instagram account from @theminiscules to @lines_by_leon to keep my branding consistent.
I found an old one that I hadn’t posted before.
A mix of funny, older, and current events
And then the return to school

So, there you go. I hope that you enjoy The Miniscules as much as I do.

-Leon
