Roberta Baird at The Doodle Diner


Rub a dub dub!

 Hi! Welcome to The Doodle Diner. My name is Roberta Baird and I’m so glad to be in The Doodle Diner group blog with these wonderful illustrators. I hope you’ll stop in often to see what’s on the menu!
What’s the first thing you remember drawing…
I remember drawing a self portrait in Kindergarten. Complete with brown page boy haircut, blue eyes, one lower than the other of course, a very cool striped skirt and one leg about three inches longer than the other.
Do you have a favorite memory from art class…
I was the only student in Advanced Art my senior year in high school, so rather than cancel the course, they housed me in another art class and I had individual assignments.  Oh, and I once I drew a portrait of my Algebra teacher and he raised my grade to a D-… does that count?  lol!
Do you have a favorite character from a book…
Oh yes…Miss Rumphius from the  book by the same name, written and illustrated by Barbara Cooney. She scattered lupine seeds…sowing a little beauty where ever she went.
 My studio is…
A mess right now! I work in a lot of different mediums, so I have a little bit here and there. I do try to clear the desk top every so often.
When you go to  a diner what food are you most likely to order….
Lets see… I’ll have a “short stack of vermonts, pigs on the side and a blond joe,  hold the sand!”  Translation: Pancakes with maple syrup, sausage and a coffee with cream, no sugar!
Care to join me?

    So THAT’s where all our coffee cups are disappearing to! Mabel said she didn’t see anything suspicious about those three patrons, but I had my doubts! I mentioned it to Mabel, and she just said, “Oh, they’ll bring it back. Don’t sweat it!”

    This is a really fun illustration, Roberta. 🙂
