1. SkADaMo Last Day!!!

SkADaMo button 2013 monkey winner 450

Wooo hooooo! We did it, y’all!

First of all I want to give a hearty thanks to all the folks who visited my blog, Facebook, or Twitter to support and root me on. Your comments, retweets, shares and ‘likes’ were encouraging, often funny and clever and always more than welcome. Thanks also for doing the same for my fellow SkADaMoers. You guys made the journey all the sweeter and kept me going when I was tempted to just sit and eat a whole bag of chips while watching goofy, but time wasting kitty antics on YouTube.

I may have only completed 25 sketches in 30 days, but that’s 25 more sketches than I would have done otherwise.

In fact, to all my fellow SkADaMoers:

You decided to step a bit out of your comfort zone this November, dip your toe into a challenge. Maybe you did one sketch, or 5, 10 or all 30. Whatever number you managed to do… You. Are. A. Winner!

Why? “Why am I a winner no matter how many sketches I finished”, you may ask? Well, because you took a positive, productive step toward revving up your creative engines this month. Perhaps your sketchbook is a little fuller, your blog has a few more posts. Maybe you killed it and did 30 sketches or more! Maybe for those who participated in PiBoIdMo or even if you didn’t, you have some great picture book ideas percolating  now or some great new ideas for a painting or some other type of super cool project. Maybe because you dipped your toe into this challenge you’ll be more toned up to jump into something even more challenging with both feet! Whatever the case may be, you did it and that is fantastic! Good for all of you!

You rock. Take a winner badge!

SkADaMoWinnerbutton2013

Now go on and enjoy the rest of your holiday season, feeling a bit more energized. Maybe you’ll take a rest from sketching every single day, maybe you’ll continue do a wee bit every day…

OR…

Maybe you’re a masochist like myself and you’ll join the HoHoDooDa (Holiday Doodle a Day) fun that December brings (starts tomorrow, or any day you can join. Of course the sooner the merrier.)

More about the third annual HoHoDooDa later today. For now congratulations SkADaMoers! You kicked November’s butt!

And thanks again to everyone who supported us and rooted us on. You guys are winners as well. Take a badge!

2. SkADaMo 30 ~ Papa Comes Home

 

caimin_papa_RBaird72aShe didn’t hear the click clack of the lock, nor did she hear the munching of the last piece of Mama Camain’s pie as Papa hungrily gobbled it up.

skadamobutton2013monkey220And there you have it! Thirty days of SkADaMo and thirty days of Picture book ideas with PiBoldMo

piboidmo2013-participant-214x131

This has been a very worthwhile experience to participate in. I now have 30 ideas, some good, some not so much, but none the less they are mine to work on and grow into full fledged stories!

No Excuses!

4. Happy Chanukkah and Thanksgiving y’all

squirrel-football-4501

Today, we eat like kings!

An oldie from last year but seems appropriate for the day!

I’ll be back to SkADaMo tomorrow. But just in case there are some die hard SkADaMoeres out there, you can check here.

bloated bunnies 450

Bloated Bunnies

Yep, that’s what I was all day today. Bloated. It’s tradition.

I don’t do the shopping thing on Black Friday. But I do , in fact, bloat. So I suppose it’s really Bloat Friday… for me.

Ok, now on to Sensible Saturday, where smaller portions are the order of the day.

Join me in a waddle on over here to check out my fellow SkADaMoers.

pig in a blanket450 2

“Pigs in a Blanket”

Well at least two of them.

The lovely Laurel Gaylord of Studio Lolo suggested this porcine pun. One of a many other idioms and puns. A girl after my own heart, she is. Can’t wait to dig in to that list.

Stop on by here to see what the other SkADaMo participants are up to.

10. SkADaMo 2013 Day 22

Counting Sheep

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

So, I seem to be continuing on a bedtime theme here. It’s wishful thinking, no doubt. This chilly weather puts me in a mood to kick off my cloven sheep slippers and curl up in bed with a good book.

Ah, but I have sketches to catch up on! Missed another two days. Oh for shame! But wait, that’s right, there are no rules. No harm done!

Anyhoo, stop on over here and let’s see how the other SkADaMo participants have been doing.

13. SkADaMo 27 ~ Merci

caimin_thanks_RBaird1
And so they arrived at the fay do do, over to Maman Caiman’s house. Each bringing with them, something to share. They ate till their bellies were full and they make the veiller. So much fun!

But Maman was worried, she hadn’t heard from Papa since last he left on his trip  to N’awlins.
“Merci pour m’svoir aide! We’re so happy you came! She said at their guest prepared to leave.

“Merci to you, Maman Caiman!” I hope you’ve saved some pie for Papa!

“PLYMOUTH ROCK!”

Let’s take a peek at what the other SkADaMoers are up to over here.

Happy Day-Before Thanksgiving, y’all!

retail store squirrels450

“Retail Store”

“Does this tail make my butt look big?” Matilda queried the patient sales squirrel.

This is what popped into my fevered mind when I saw the Illustration Friday word of the week was “tail.”

Also, just wanted to mention that I’m getting some pretty cool ideas brewing for PiBoIdMo. A little excited.

Well, I may be falling slightly behind, but my fellow SkADaMoers are kicking some serious squirrel butt over here.

monster450

Chortle Minster

Tonight seems like a good time to take a wee break from puns and idioms and of course the next best thing to do, in my opinion, is draw a monster.

Well, more of a minster really.

Gary here is quite diminutive and could easily fit into the palm of your hand. That is if you could possibly hold  Gary in your hand for more than a second or two. You see, the ticklers on his tiny head and tail can render a potential captor ridiculously helpless with laughter.

Much chortling then ensues.

If you insist on being tickled you might want to toddle on over here and check out my fellow SkADaMoers!

Hot chicks450

“Hot Chicks”

A little rougher sketch today. Probably so I can hurry and run to the window to stare at the rain. We finally got some of that ole precipitation today! I’m feeling rather hydrated and very energized.

But memories of the long, hot summer still haunt me. So much so I remembered an old drawing I did a few years ago depicting the heat and redrew it.

So here are some hot, hot chicks for your animal idiom pleasure. Of course, last time I posted these hot chicks, I got some… shall we say… interesting hits on my blog.

Go figure.

So for some hot, hot sketches go here and check out what my fellow SkADaMoers are doing today.

23. SkADaMo 2013 (What Does the Fox Say?)

Fox 450

..I never said any of those things!

I saw one of those captioned, photo, icanhascheezburger-y things the other day. It had a picture of a fox and the above caption, or something like it. I thought it was hilarious but couldn’t relocate it to share, so I decided to rip it off borrow it for today’s sketch.

Just in case y’all somehow missed this very catchy, children’s book meets Felini, viral video, “What Does the Fox Say,” check it out here.

Oh, and speaking of children’s books, it actually has become a children’s book! Check it here.

And as always, if you’d like to see what the other SkADaMoers are up to trot on over here.

weiner dog ski 450

“Hot Dogging”

Well the only thing about Boswell that’s hot dogging is his tubular physique. He’s much more familiar with the snow plow than any sort of shredding.

Why not schuss on over here to check out my fellow SkADaMoers at work.

I figured these little ones, worked so hard on making the pie all week, they deserved a a piece themselves!

turkeycomic 1a_RBaird72

Skadamo 22 …and I’m all caught up.
Now for something really different. I’ve never done anything in comic format, so I have to say how much I admire those who do.This is a scribbly, sketchy attempt.
Here’s, Turkey Daze!
