Oh hey!

Announcing (last minute, as is tradition) the beginning of HoHoDooDa 2016 (or Holiday Doodle A Day!)

If this tiny reindeer looks familiar, it’s because I posted him exactly a year ago (and lazily posting him again, in lieu of a new drawring,) for HoHoDooDa.

What is HoHoDooDa? Why, thanks for asking.

Back in December 2011, in order to create a shot of creative, mojo-inducing stress to the already jam packed holidays, my fellow illustrator pals, the talented Marion Eldridge and Laura Jacobson along with myself, engaged in a month-long sketch-a-thon. We dubbed it HoHoDooDa, short for Holiday Doodle a Day (maybe not that much shorter.) We did our best to create a holiday-themed doodle a day… or even every other day… or as often as humanly possible, from December 1 to December 31.

Fast forward to 2016 where this November has been a challenging month for all of us. So now, what with the holidays and all, it probably seems crazy to add this challenge to the mix. There may be some gnashing of teeth and it may all end in tears but in the end I’m sure a pretty good time will be had. It may even be rewarding, as it was in years past. So, what the actual heck! Doin’ it again this year! Who’s with me?

Hello? What’s that…?

Alright, it is entirely possible I may be the only participant this year, but anyone who would like to join in is more than welcome, no matter what winter holiday you celebrate! Don’t let the HoHo throw you. This is an all-the-winter-holidays doodle challenge!

Although traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday can prove to be quite challenging, Thom felt it would be worth his while to get out of town for a few days.

SkADaMo Day 18 (drawing 4)

Lookit!

I managed to sketch yet again!

Trying to recapture some of the fun I had with SkADaMo 2014 when i was doing animal combinations. I’m not sure what was more fun drawing them or coming up with the wacky names.

I was inspired one day, while wasting time on the interwebs and stumbled upon “Meowls” and “Dirds.” Seems like animal combos are definitely a thing.

So… jumped on the bandwagon.

Ok, SkADaMo 2016 didn’t go as planned. But lookit, I drew Fru Fru the lil shrew from “Zootopia.”

Why?

Well, a Facebook friend of mine started a little situation where everyone gets assigned a Disney character to post, hopefully brightening up everyone’s Timeline during a pretty grim period in social media. I posted it on Facebook and thought I’d count it also as a SkADaMo sketch. Always the opportunist!

So, hoping this gets me revved up to do more sketches for the remainder of November.

Fingers crossed!
