Merry Happy!

Toilet Tree rev
May everything go smoothly in the new year!
Didn’t get around to holiday cards this year, but hoping this lil bit of silliness from a more productive year helps make up for it.
Happy and Merry Christmas, Winter Solstice, belated Chanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus (for the rest of us) or whatever you may celebrate this winter… to you, with love!

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?

carol of the bulls new

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.

flock of beagles

Is that a “Flock of Beagles” up there or is it just an Illusion?

I know this is a stretch for the Illustration Friday theme, “Illusion,” but this is what I was working on when I got the prompt in my inbox and… well… I squinted, then thought, yeah, this will work.

By the way, I was thinking about drawing a dog version of these guys… and you know, I might still. Watch out!

Felt like I was overdue for an Illustration Friday submission. Way overdue for any kind of post. Sheepers!

HoHoDooDa Day 1

BREW-DOLF THE RED NOSED REIN-BEER

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

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!
