Wasn’t able to squeeze out a doodle today, (hmmm, that didn’t sound quite right, did it?)

Anywho, I thought I’d post this guy from a couple of years ago. Also, it seemed like a wee bit of color was in order.

Hope y’all are having a great holiday season so far!

Why not stop on by here, to see what my fellow doodlers are up to.

first day of Christmas

December 13, 2010

Come join us at The Doodle Diner where we’ll be doing the Twelve Days of Christmas. Visit us each day to see what illustration goodness we have in store for each of the twelve days, until Christmas Eve.

I kicked off the first day with my bulbous partridge. Can’t wait to see what the other Doodlers have cooked up!

A bit of holiday celebration yesterday caused me to be a little late with Day 5… Day 6 coming soon!

Be sure to check out Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4.

Thanks! Happy Holidays!

…Merry Little Chrismahannakwanza!

Whatever holiday you celebrate or choose not to celebrate this winter, I hope it’s the happiest ever!!

Christmas is the holiday Tom and I both grew up with and still enjoy with gusto, although I’d never turn down an invitation or opportunity to participate in a Hannukah, Kwanza or any other holiday celebration. The more opportunities to hang out with friends, eat (food you would never dream of eating the rest of the year due to sheer terror of heart failure,) or light candles, the better!

For us Christmassy types, many towns in the U.S. have what they call Candy Cane Lane, or a Candy Cane Lane-like street, where every blade of grass on every lawn of every house is blinking, strobing or sparkling with copious amounts of holiday lights and decorations. However, in Valencia, CA the entire town is pretty much a Candy Cane Lane.

Yes folks, Christmas threw up on our town.

What we lack in the beauty and wonder of snowfall, we more than make up with a king’s ransom of an and electric bill and Home Depot receipt.

Tom and I bring up the rear with a token strand of red lights tacked lovingly across the front of our house. We tell ourselves we’re trying to be green, but really, we’re just too lazy busy. Why, we’ve got “Daily Show” reruns to watch.

But you know, as excessive as all the lights, giant blow up snowglobes, and creepy animated santas are, there’s nothing Tom and I like better than taking a detour on the way home from work to gawk at the handiwork of our zealous neighbors.

It’s the closest thing to tradition we have in our suburban town, and we’ve grown to love it.

Above is a an image I drew in Photoshop for my 2002 Christmas card. Thought I’d try to get a little more mileage out of it.
