Spruced Up card

Redrew an oldie. So, at least I wasn’t completely lazy – and by lazy I mean, holiday overwhelmingness.

Dusting off an oldie from a “Twelve Days of Christmas” challenge I participated in 7 years ago. 

Silent mites

A friend of mine and pun aficionado, Patricia, suggested this one. It made me giggle, so of  course I had to draw it. Probably should have put them on a hairy arm or something, but I jumped the gun in posting it. Oh well, whaddya gonna do, eh? Here’s some Silent Mites… oh dang, should have put thrown “holey mites” in there too, to complete the pun! Again, whaddya gonna do?

Thought this might be appropriate, considering how surreal things seem right now, what with Southern California on fire and all.

One of my favorites from HoHoDooDa 2014 (check it out), redrawn to tighten up the line a bit. I promise to do some new stuff this year as well, but I find it soothing to ease in with something familiar.

Oh hey!

Announcing (last minute, as is tradition) the beginning of HoHoDooDa 2017 (or Holiday Doodle A Day!)

If this tiny reindeer looks familiar, it may be because I’ve posted him in the past and he’s been nominated as spokescritter for this year. Oh and I realize they’re actually antlers, but antler-ments just didn’t really work.

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 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 2017 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!
