The Doodle Diner is serving up a double dose of doodle goodness and some caroling on the side!
Starting on December 13, 2010 the Doodle Diner will be presenting their own version of the Twelve days of Christmas. Check back each day for a new illustration of an old classic!
Take a peek at this. The New York Times Book Review posted this article announcing the 10 best illustrated children’s book of 2010.
The judges included Robert Sabuda, Elizabeth Bird, and David Barringer. What an interesting and variety collection of books.
Sometimes you hit a bump in the road. If you’re lucky, it’s just a bump and will soon pass. That’s what I’m expecting. I have cancer. I have had 2 major operations already. I’m about to have another – a big one. But it could very well cure my cancer – or at the very least, buy me a decade or three. I’m otherwise healthy and strong and living life full-tilt, and the doctors are all positive. I’m confident that I’ll be back at the drawing board and in great health very soon!
So, how has all this work on my health affected my life in art? Well, I’ve drawn only with my daughter for a few months, posting nothing. I look at art and illustration online and been to a few shows. At first, I felt guilty I wasn’t posting art. But, well, when you face the possibilty of death, all you think about is your family and getting better. And that’s okay. Health and love are top priorities… art will have to come third.
Oh, the picture? I just like it. Funny, you do a Google image search for Dorothy and Alice and it comes up first (the theater group that used my image asked permission).
Anyway… here’s a few links of interest for all you artists and art-appreciators.

Okay, sorry about the rambling post. Just wanted to catch up a bit. Have a great everything, my friends!
Realizing that it’s no longer goal month, I still wanted to kick off February by bragging that I hunkered down and managed to cross one off my list. I finally got my website (mostly) done!
Of course, I still need to fix a few bugs, the portfolio is still in the process of being agonized over overhauled and I need to get myself a domain name, (this is the temp URL), but all in all, I’m pretty thrilled I got this far.
One down and a gazillion to go!
Last month the Doodle Diner’s David “Pickledog” Sones had a Wintery Print Giveaway. The good news is, everyone was a winner! Everyone who commented will be receiving a print… and you know who you are!
Congratulations to you all and thank you again David for your sweet, generous gift!
Speaking of tasty, in December, we had our very first print giveaway, generously provided by doodler extraordinaire, David “Pickldog” Sones. Thank you so much David and thank you everyone who participated.
This month, in an effort to inspire and be inspired, we’ll be kicking off the first week of 2010 with “goal” as our theme. What are some of our resolutions, goals and aspirations? In other words, what special ingredients will the denizens of the Doodle Diner be concocting to create a recipe for success this year?
Stick around and find out. It’s on the house.
Post-holiday Doldrumoid (as seen through a microscope.)
We’ve always known of their existence, but for the first time ever, caught in mid listless, despondency, is what experts commonly refer to as the Post-holiday Doldrumoid…in the flesh……or rather, in the doodle.
No matter. It’s official. We have a Doldrumoid pandemic on our hands. They are here and we have got to deal with them.
1. Ignore them. Doldrumoids have been known to (more…)
