HoHoDooDA 2020 Day 2

December 2, 2020

Oh hey!

Announcing (a day late and a drawing short) the beginning of HoHoDooDa 2020 (or Holiday Doodle A Day!)

Here’s a little something I did back in HoHoDooDa 2017. You didn’t thing I’d be organized enough to have a brand new sketch, did you?

So, 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 Eldridgeand 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 drawing a day… or even every other day… or as often as humanly possible, from December 1 to December 31.

Fast forward to (insert expletive-filled descriptor here) 2020. It would have been easy to just put it off this year, but perhaps some holiday immersion therapy is in order. There may be some gnashing of teeth and it might all end in tears but in the end I’m pretty sure a good time will be had. It may even be as rewarding as it was in years past. So, what the actual hell? Doin’ it again this year! Who’s with me?

Hello? What’s that…? Bueller…?

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!

Rules for HoHoDooDa:

“What are the rules for HoHoDooDa?” You may ask…

1. THERE ARE NO RULES! NO SIGN UP! NO REGISTRATION! NO GIVEAWAYS OR GUEST POSTERS!  No regulations, themes, daily words, Facebook pages or anything else resembling organization. Just lots of holiday doodling, maybe some commenting back and forth amongst doodlers and hopefully lots of inspiration and craft honing!

We HoHoDooDa Doodlers are scoff-laws and rebels! (Well the truth is, I’m just not that organized.) The only code we live by this month is Doodle! Doodle! and doodle some more, every day from December 1 to December 31. At least try to.

You may not Doodle every single day, but dude, you will have tried and you may have more doodles in your sketchbook at the end of December than you might have otherwise.

So, there’s that!

2. If you are posting to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., it helps to add #HoHoDooDa and/or #HoHoDooDa2020

If you post to a blog it helps if you tag your illustrations HoHoDooDa 2020 or create a HoHoDooDa category.

3. Smile, this is fun!

Doodle on my fellow HoHoDooDa Doodlers, (should there be any!)
