#2 – Deedle Van Scoot

| November 2, 2010 | 2 Comments

Deedle Van Scoot is a new character in the world and story of Art Geek Zoo. He’s a visual arts student at Zoo College of the Arts – the less prestigious school that houses the exclusive best-of-the-best performance and all-arts school Polytechnica.

Deedle constantly finds himself under the pooping bird of trouble. His knack for trouble isn’t due to being mischievous or acting-out. Rather, Deedle has a special talent for sensing where beautiful things are happening or are about to happen. Unfortunately for him these beautiful events also happen to be dangerous events. Whether that’s the best sunset that blinds a swerving bus driver, the most amazing flock of birds about to take-off en-masse that then swoop and attack, a triumphant athletic moment that leads to him getting tackled, or an intense battle of bands wielding powers in The Way of Sound in a powerful spectacle (where it’s just not safe to be standing near in order to finish a drawing or capture a photograph) where crumbling buildings and statues miss him.

One side effect of this is that Deedle is constantly out of cash due to replacing his often-violently-broken art gear.

Deedle has narrowly avoided his own demise more times than he can possibly keep track. To him – this is just bad luck. While the reality of his situation eludes him, Deedle has started to wonder if there’s a pattern to his troubles.

Matters of Deedle aside, I recently shared some of my experience so far with Art Challenge Events such as 30 Characters and 24 Hour Comic Day in my art journal podcast “The Art Geek Zoo Polytechnicast“.

  1. Ah yes, the pooping bird of trouble. Poor Deedle.

  2. Indeed. Don’t look up, Deedle.
