Don't stifle medoodle

The design and development of the new Horribles website was slowing my doodling. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get back into it. After all that work, it would have been very dissappointing not to draw new doodles. This follows my underlying fear that if I think too much about my doodles, I won't be able to create them anymore. Both unfounded, right?

Before you ask, I don't know what those white things are. At first I thought of cotton balls or pillows, but in the end, I left them as squiggly whitish gray things with incorrect shadowing. The little guy is supposed to be smothered by them. I originally drew the pillow-things over everything, but when I deleted a few to make room for the words, I realized the blue space was comforting. I deleted more pillows to balance out the holes and remove that feeling of being trapped.
