Calling All Pipers…

December 23, 2010

11 pipers piping

This piece is quite long and I do not have an oversized scanner, so my camera is doing its best to show all eleven pipers. I may have to photograph each piper individually so you can see the characters and lines and details. But here is this to give you the general idea! Note that there is always one SYLVIA in every crowd. (See day SEVEN). 🙂

Nine Ladies Dancing… well trying to anyway.

Dancing ladies are always so sweet and perfect, unless you go to a dance class when those kiddos are just starting to learn. You get all sorts interpretations of those dance positions.

Happy 12 days of Christmas.

On the Seventh Day

My true love gave to me…


Meet the Synchronized Sisters of Sunnyvale.
These lovely ladies are known far and wide for their beauty, grace and of course their precision technique! Never a more friendly gaggle of gals could be found. That is, until Sylvia joined the group! She was a rare bird indeed!!

Then the feathers flew!!  “Why does she always get to stay above water?”

Sylvia just smiled and let it roll like water off a ducks back… or should I say swan!

Portnoy had originally planned on sending Priscilla her present by mail. But being a wise pig he decided to do it in person, er porcine.

Oh, and seriously, at the end of the day, which golden ring gives you more pleasure, the ore or the onion?

Since neither ATT, T-Mobile nor Verizon will give cell phone plans to birds, our fine feathered friends must resort to the few pay-phones there are left.

On this second day of Christmas Candace has some fabulous turtle doves winging their way to The Doodle Diner, a wee bit later. In the mean time, please enjoy this little turtle dove teaser.

The First Day of Christmas

Sadly, being a partridge, Penelope possessed poor reading skills. So it was only after having trained vigorously to become the next pear-eating phenom that Penelope realized the sign, in fact, read “pie-eating contest”.

Although the tradition and history of the Twelve Days of Christmas is deep, complex and fascinating and the twelve days typically begin on December 25th and go to January 6th, we at the Doodle Diner decided to break tradition and start our twelve days today and go until Christmas Eve.

We’re just rebels like that.

So, the Doodle Diner denizens would love it if you would check back each day until Christmas Eve to take a gander at what illustration goodness we have in store for each of the next twelve days.

Check out the Second DayThird Day and Fourth Day.

Oh, and make sure to have yourself a merry little Chrismahannakwanza!
