12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Stick Man” Worksheet

22 Stick Man Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s – #6 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Stick Man”  Second sequenced post.


Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Stick Man” painting.

I decided to expand on the two figures in the chosen ‘doodle’ and with it came the thought process of the narrative. Unlike “The Candy Store” and others, which have a strong central narrative, there is a menagerie of small semi-related narratives sprinkled around to the various characters.

The second ’doodle’ I incorporated as a mask, hanging from the hand of one of the figures in the lower left area.

Lastly, the hand-held ’toy’ in the upper left corner is the “Stick Man”. Contemplating this figures hand, begging to hold something, a ’doodle’ which I can’t seem to locate in any of my sketchbooks came into my head. I don’t know if it’s a real, I-can’t-find-it ‘doodle’ from the sketchbooks, or imagined, but he insisted on being included, enough that I named the painting after him.

There still a few questions about a few of the objects in the design but they, I hope, will be resolved during the painting process.


The project will be posted in the following sequence, 1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the painting has originated.

The second Monday-the 12”x12” pencil ‘Worksheet’ showing the intended painting.

The third Monday-a ‘Progress’ post of the painting.

The fourth Monday-the ‘Finished’ painting.

Then repeat.

  1. I didn’t expect such a dapper Stick Man !
    I really like all the little points of interest. The tightrope walker is especially cute.
    Can’t wait to see it with some color.
