Day 63 – I Postit something new

August 31st, 2009 2 comments

I’ve been talking about this for a few days now.  This week I have taken to doing a series of doodles on postit notes.  I strated by picking one size, but will also take on larger and smaller postit notes.  It was fun working on a much smaller “canvas” , being confined and unable to grow the image was interesting.  I hope you like the series.  I will display them individually at first and then as groups at the end. 

Sometimes the little things pack the biggest punch and working with the confines of the Postit, I realized I had to be more diciplined and accurate.  I really did love doodling on these.

So to set things off, here’s the first postit doodle.

Day 62 – Freefest

August 30th, 2009 No comments

I’m off to the 2009 Virgin Mobile All day music festival today.  called Freefest.  It should be a long and very fun day.  Great bands are playing; Blink-182, Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, and many more.  I went last year with my son and we had an amazing time.  This year he has several friends joining us.  Let’s hope the rain holds off.

I hope you enjoyed the object doodling exercise, that I ran this past week.  For the coming week, starting Monday, I have something different to share.  So be sure to come back and check it out.

For today’s doodle, I thought I would close out object week with an object that I would love to doodle on, but I simply doodled the object instead.  My trusted, but at times annoying smart phone.  So here we have the Palm Treo in all it’s doodled glory.

Day 61 – Put a lid on it

August 29th, 2009 No comments

As we come close to the end of the week of object doodles. I have a simple but sweet item for display. 

A top, just a top.  It’s small (not much room to doodle on) and I couldn’t use my trusty fine line doodle pen on the clear plastic, but I like the simplicity of it.

Sometimes it’s the small simple things that come over looking the best.

Next week I launch a brand new doodle series that I really loved doing amd I hope you will too.  Make sure you catch the little gems I have in store for you next week.

For now, here’s the itty bitty doodle lid

Day 60 – Just a spoonfull of . . .

August 28th, 2009 No comments

A while back I gave you a doodled plate and cup, so why not throw in the flatware.  I love this doodled spoon, but it’ s been lying around too long and the artwok appears to be pealing off.  So I quickly snapped it.

Then, while I was scrolling through my pics, I found the fork I had done a while back.  I’m not so crazy about the doodle fork, but it goes with the flatware.

And then in the midst of everything I felt like a cup of tea…..

Day 59 – Another 3 for Thursday

August 27th, 2009 4 comments

You gotta love them doodles.  Yesterday was the busiest day on the site, thanks to all those that are stopping by on a daily basis.  Now I’m getting mail from folk who are here because the love to doodle, are inspired by doodles are intrigued, are uplifted.  I am so pleased that what I am doing is being recognized.  The amazing power of the Internet,  reaching those with a passion all over the world.  Keep coming back and leave comments and feedback, so that I know you’ve stopped by for a quick visit.

Recently I decided the site needed a little face lift.  I picked a new WordPress Theme (you gotta love WordPress).  This theme gives me more space to play with and more options.  Do you see the FACEBOOK page link.  Why not become a fan of ours on Facebook.  Since “The Doodle Daily” is an offshoot of our parent company “Tjomies Vintage Stationery” the facebook site is tjomies.com, where you will find many interesting things. 

So I chose a new theme and I also felt it needed a little color, so I introduced a new banner and background.  I would love to hear what you think.  so leave a comment or drop me a line through the contact link on the sidebar —–> the one on the left.

That being said, we still need to see the doodles.

For the object doodle today I smoothed out some tin foil (lunch wrap) and gave it a spruce up.  Recycle time, let’s not waste.

Day 57 – Marie a cookie

August 25th, 2009 1 comment

A while back we had the Saltine cracker with all it’s bump and grinds.  Tough doodling around those pesky salt crystals.  This time I took on a Marie Biscuit (cookie).  These have always been a favorite.  love to dunk them in tea or coffee (but you better make sure it’s not the one that got doodled)

I did the front and back, because the surfaces are so different.  Take a doodle peek at the “Marie”

Day 56 – A Floppy Doodle

August 24th, 2009 No comments

I received so many comments and feedback on the Object doodling that I did a while back and I did promise it would return.  So this week along with traditional doodle drawings we will have a weeks worth of object doodles.  I put my pen to some way out items….. keep checking back this whole week.

Here is Doodled object no 1 for round 2 of this exercise.  I’m sure you too have a ton of these useless floppies lying around… so why not turn them into works of art.  The scary thing is that the picture I took of this floppy, would not even fit on the disk itself.  how technology has progressed.

Day 54 – A night at the Movies

August 22nd, 2009 No comments

Just got home from seeing two pretty good movies.  District 9 & Inglourious Basterds.  Two very different but both intense movies.  Loved District 9 (and I must admit when I saw the preview, before I knew anything about it, I though it was a joke).  It was a well made, surprisingly well acted movie and as a South African ex-pat, I had a chuckle everynow and then at somethings that were said. 

Inglourious was a different story.  I do love the work of Quentin Tarantino.  His dialog is sharp and crisp and his scenes are often so well orchestrated.  Pulp Fiction is one of my all time favorite movies.  I just felt with this one he dragged on and on in some scenes.  The constant language switches were at times difficult to grasp, especially when his dialog is so rapid fire, it becomes tough to follow with the sub titles.  But, overall it was true Tarantino and worth seeing.

I never invisioned my Doodle Blog entry to be a movie review, but I hope I was able to give you some insight into these two summer blockbusters.

On to the doodle of the day for Saturday:
