Hear ye! Hear ye! HoHoDooda has begun!


In the wee small hours of November 30th, three crazy illustrators got their cyber heads together and concocted a scheme to create more stress and angst for themselves just in time for the holidays. What could be better?

In those wee small hours, between Linda Silvestri, Laura Jacobsen, and I, a brainchild was born. HoHoDooda! Ho Ho! Hey Hey! HoHoDooda starts today! What is this craziness you ask? We have taken up the challenge to do one sketch/doodle/scribble a day for the month of December and said scribbles are to be of anything related to the holiday season. Thus the name: Holiday Doodles a Day. Well, close enough.

Lest you think we've totally lost our minds and will most certainly crack and ruin said holidays for ourselves and our families, not to worry! We've set a low bar. 'Cause that's just the way we are. And it's the holidays for cryin' out loud! So, no beating ourselves up if we miss days or even if we have to bail altogether. We figured that if even two of us have nothing on any given day, maybe one will. (You'd think!) Anyway....we'll give it our best. So, Ho Ho,let's go!

Be sure to check out Laura, and Linda's blogs too now! It's begun!

I guess we both have elves on the brain, eh? He is just simply precious! Love him, and great intro too. HoHoDooDa, weeeeeeeeee!

Thank you, Linda! I can't tell you how happy I am to be doing this with you! So much fun! Your elf is super! Just as I expected! Onward!

Pretty fun! Great doodle. (I think it qualifies as more than a doodle, though.) Love this idea and can't wait to see what transpires.

Laura Jacobsen said...

Love it! Nervous... ;-)

Thanks so much Chris! I just realised that if the 3 of us actually did a sketch a day every day, that would be 93 holiday sketches. Wow!

Laura! Thank you! Hope your deadlines don't get too intense. Your first drawing is just beautiful! But, just do what you can and everyone will be grateful. I promise you!

Ooh! What fun for all of us who tune in to see so many fun images as we lead up to the holidays.
I think you may be slightly crazy to volunteer this commitment, but I applaud you whole heartedly :o)

Thanks June! Your post made me laugh. Yes! Slightly crazy, indeed! More than slightly, I'd say. I'll share a little secrect, I have a few doodles (really doodly ones) stockpiled for days when I'm really in a pinch. Just a few though. And I have a feeling my style might get loser and sloppier as the days go by. In my case, that's not such a bad thing actually! Thanks for stopping by!
