Day 549 – Farewell 2010

December 31st, 2010 No comments

The end of the year, and another one passes us by. How quickly time flies, and in the blink of an eye it will be 2011. This new century is marching by fast. It seems like only yesterday that we were all planning and worrying about Y2K and now we are entering Y2K11.
I have been working on my doodle for New Years day, but really didn’t think to plan anything special for new years eve…
So this is what I have for you. (you will have to come back tomorrow, for the new years doodle)

Something colorful for the new years eve (using my menagerie of Sharpie pens)  This could be a fruit smoothie (healthy), popcorn at a fair (not so healthy)  It could be anything you like, I guess.  Just toast in the new year and make 2011 a colorful and creative one.

Have a great (and safe) New years Eve

Day 548 – A Punch o red

December 30th, 2010 2 comments

A touch of red is good luck and as we head to then end of 2010, we need a little punch of red.  Only 2 days left in this year, the first decade of the 21st century is almost behind us.  Unbelievable.

Here’s a Mandala doodle with a punch of red, for good luck.  Do you see the additional mini punch!

Day 545 – gingerbread

December 27th, 2010 No comments

We head into the last week of the year. Can you believe that 2010 is almost through? It was a good holiday weekend and the snow we were promised, never arrived (except that other areas on the east coast got pummeled.)

Hopefully this coming week will be easy for all of you. Plenty time to be creative

This guy is my doodled gingerbread man, perfect for the festive season:

Day 544 – Boxing Day

December 26th, 2010 No comments

Whenever I think of Boxing day, I think it must be related to art of punching in a ring (which reminds me that I must go see the new movie “The Fighter”) In fact Boxing day (which is by no means an American Holiday) is a day dedicated to boxing up unwanted gifts and sharing them with those less privileged. I think it is a wonderful tradition and it’s a pity it is not carried out all over the world.

now let me go see where and when the new Boxing movie “The fighter” is showing.

Talking of movies, I recently saw two top notch Oscar worthy films “The Kings Speech” and “127 Hours”  The former was lovely a good movie, by no means a great movie, very formula like, but superbly acted.  The latter, which is the new Danny Boyle (of Slumdog Millionaire) movie.  What an amazing thrill ride.  It is the true story of Aron Ralston, who after a climbing accident, and 5 days of being trapped, had to cut off his right arm to survive.  Talk about costing an arm and a leg.  This is one unbelievably well made movie, and even though I new the story and outcome (it was all over the news at the time) it was like seeing it fresh.  Go seek out this fantastic movie.  James Franco is a marvel in the role.

Ok that being said I still need to post today’s doodle – no connection at all with boxing day or the movies, but I like this one and you can interpret it any way you like.

Day 542 – Twas the night

December 24th, 2010 1 comment

“Twas the night before Christmas

when all through the house

not a creature was stirring

not even a mouse…”

A classic tale for a classic time of the year

My Christmas mouse is an innocent little creature

but no holiday would be the same without him.

Have a Merry Christmas eve.

Are you all ready for the holidays?  This one reminds me of the beach and ferris wheels and sun and sand….. must be winter break travel time, except I am not going anywhere.  At least this doodle looks like it is.

Day 540 – A Journey

December 22nd, 2010 3 comments

I  call this doodle, simply

“A Journey”

over the moon

under the sea

we live, we love, we soar

up, up and away

swim with the fish

soar to the clouds


to infinity and beyond
A Journey
