HoHoDooDa 2019 Day 1

December 1, 2019

HoHoDooDa hornamint 2019

Oh hey!

Announcing (last minute, as is tradition) the beginning of HoHoDooDa 2019 (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 spokes-critter for this year. Oh, and I realize they’re actually antlers, but antler-ments 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 drawing a day… or even every other day… or as often as humanly possible, from December 1 to December 31.

Fast forward to 2019 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 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!

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

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

So, there’s that!

2. If you post to your blog it helps if you tag your illustrations HoHoDooDa 2017 or create a HoHoDooDa category.

If you are posting to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram it helps to add #HoHoDooDa2019 and/or #HoHoDooDa

3. Smile, this is fun!

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

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.

Oh hi!

Announcing (last minute as is tradition) the beginning of HoHoDooDa 2015 (or Holiday Doodle A Day!)

A few Decembers ago, 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 (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.

November was really a challenging month for me and I  realize, what with the holidays and all, it probably seems 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 in years past. So, doin’ it again this year!

It is entirely possible that I may be the only participant, but anyone who wants to join in is more than welcome! Regardless of what winter holiday you celebrate!

It’s December y’all!

Ok then (rubbing hands together), time to put Thanksgiving behind us and focus on the holiday shenanigans still ahead, along with… drumroll please… HoHoDooDa 2013!

Looks like we have a few masochists joining us this year. Below are the names and links of said participants (at least any who have left their name and link to where they are posting their doodles, in the comments here.) If I’ve missed anyone or your link is not working or any other proof of my heinous lack of organizational skills, please leet me know and I’ll do my best to fix it.

So let’s kick the turkeys out of our way, roll up our sleeves and get doodling!

HoHoDooDa Day 27

December 27, 2012

santa-pause450

Back after a bit of a HoHoDooDa hiatus. The doodling juices haven’t quite started flowing again yet, so I thought I’d repost last year’s aftermath sketch. My Christmas stocking had some nibs for my Wacom tablet stylus, so I’m going to have to give ’em a whirl tomorrow with some fresh doodas.

Until then, wishing you a Merry Holitween (that odd little bit of space between the holidays.)

HoHoDooDa Day 20

PLEASE CLICK ON ABOVE IMAGE.

The Illustration Friday word of the week is crunchy. So I squeaked out another quick 2 sketches to try to make up for my lagging the past couple of days.

…………………………………..

UPDATE:

Ok, I’m not sure where I got the idea the Illustration Friday word of the week was “crunchy.” Must have dreamt it. It’s actually “snow.” So, there’s snow in my image, so it still fits, hee hee!

I hope you’ll drop by here and see what my fellow HoHoDooDa Doodlers are up to.
