ELVES – THE UNSUNG HEROES OF CHRISTMAS

During this holiday season, many of us will be rushing from party to party, slugging down eggnog then carelessly ripping apart painstakingly wrapped presents. Afterwards we will, no doubt, be thanking Santa for all the lovely gifts bestowed upon us, giving him most the credit for the momentary glee we experience as we pile up our newly aquired swag.

Well, before you tear into that last box of See’s candy, I invite you to take a moment. Take a moment to think about the folks who worked tirelessly all year long, well into the wee hours of the morning, the people working behind the scenes making it all possible, the ones really responsible for that silly smile on your face

I’m speaking of course, of the elf.

Elves, the unsung heroes of Christmas. Elves, their voices must be heard.  So again, please take a moment. Think of them in their ill fitting, green suits and their pointy little shoes. Think of how their elfin efforts make Mr. Kringle look good. Think of the elves. That’s all they really want – just a moment. A moment of recognition.

A moment of recognition, and maybe an extra cookie set out on the table Christmas Eve night. (They don’t really eat much.)

Thank you, this has been a Public Service Announcement, paid for by E.L.F.S. (Elves Looking for Sympathy.)

HoHoDooDa Day 1

As nutty as November was, what with PiBoIdMo (thank you so much Tara Lazar!) and SkADaMo, it was just what the doctor ordered as far as a shot of creative, mojo-inducing stress.

Last December, to keep the momentum going, my fellow doodle pals and inspiring muses, Marion EldridgeLaura Jacobson and I engaged in yet another month-long sketch-a-thon we dubbed HoHoDooDa, short for Holiday Doodle a Day (hmmm, not really that much shorter. Is it?) We did our best to create a holiday-themed doodle a day… or even every other day… or as often as humanly possible, throughout December.

What with the holidays and all, I admit it’s a little crazy and there may be some gnashing of teeth and tears shed, but overall, I’m sure it will be a blast and very rewarding, as it was last year. So, doin’ it again this year!

Anyone who wants to join in is more than welcome, regardless of what winter holiday you celebrate! Let me know in the comments if you’re game, along with the best URL to use and I’ll do my best to keep a list of links going so we can root for each other and enjoy the sugarplum fruits of each other’s doodle labors.

Let the doodling commence!

P.S. By the way, I realize I cheated tonight by using last year’s doodle. Tee hee!

HoHoDooDa Day 1

December 1, 2011

As nutty as November was, what with SkADaMo and PiBoIdMo, it was just what the doctor ordered as far as a shot of creative, mojo-inducing stress. So when fellow illustrators, Marion Eldridge and Laura Jacobson approached me with yet another month-long sketch-a-thon, I couldn’t resist.

We’re calling it “Holiday Doodle A Day” or HoHoDooDa for short… hmmm, is it really shorter? I don’t know… but hey, there you have it!

So we’re going to do our best to create a doodle a day… or every other day… or as often as humanly possible, throughout December.

Wish us luck and Happy Holidays!!!

advent calendar – day 22

December 23, 2009

Um, yeah, it’s me again… the advent calendar spokes-elf. Sooooooooooooo sorry.

Seems I’ve been informed of yet another incident, involving several burnt cookies and a broken ornament… don’t ask, it’s not pretty.

My sources have once again assured me that tomorrow a grand finale of sorts will ensue.

Merry Christmas to all and to all… unburnt cookies and fully intact ornaments!

December 18, 2009

Ahem… excuse me… I have an announcement to make.

Allow me to introduce myself. I am the spokes-elf for the author of this advent calendar. I have been informed that due to an unfortunate eggnog incident, there will be no day seventeen art tonight. I’ve been assured by sources close to the author that after a bit of the nog that bit her… I mean… ahem… beginning tomorrow the calendar art will resume at it’s regular time.

Thank you and good night.
