Week 2 and I’m on track!  I thought maybe I’d explain all the circles before I post this next doodle. My almost 3 year old daughter is starting to really enjoy drawing, and it’s the one activity that she can sit and do for a good 30 or 4o minutes.  Some days she’ll sit and meticulously draw little scribble circles and sneak a happy face or two in there for good measure.  So amidst all the scribbles and lines, there will be itty bitty thoughtful placement of these scribble circle/happy faces.  It’s awesome to watch her create these masterpieces.  When I told my Mom about this she informed me that when I was her age I would sit for long periods of time and just draw circles all over a page.  Little itty bitty circles, and I’d cover an entire page with them.  This got me thinking…I wonder what it would look like if I drew images completely from circles, and so I did.  I started with the tree, I’ll post the orginal attempt at some point, then the turtle was last week, and this week is the giraffe.  So there you go. A circle-doodle.  Not as good as a snickerdoodle, but a little more fun to look at.

Taken with my iphone 

The first one is taken by my iphone around midnight last night when I completed the drawing, and the second one is done with help from my awesome graphic designer husband and manipulated a lil in photoshop. (You can click on each photo to make it larger.)

Hey there!  So I know I just started this whole “I’m gonna draw a picture a week thing”, well how about two!?  I was given the honor of drawing the display wall at my friend Tracy’s store in Culver City, hellowmellow.  It’s her Holiday Wall and here is what I did..

(you can click on the drawings to get a closer look )

It’s done with chalk on a wall painted with chalkboard paint.  As per my usual disclaimer, it’s a rough drawing, picture taken with my iphone, and done in only a few hours, but it’s something, so I’m posting it.  I might go back and add a bit more, but for now…this is it!  If you’re interested in learning more about hellomellow please venture over to Tracy’s website http://www.hellomellow.com

Doodle a Week…

October 20, 2011

So…I’m going to start adding a Doodle a Week to this completely inactive and haphazard blog that I started.  I hope by doing this it will start to show some progress in my doodling and open myself up to new possibilities.  The drawings are rough, they are photos taken with my new iPhone 4S and they are 1st attempts, well…they are what they are…

So here goes…

Doodle Numero Uno

TURTLE
