What has changed since I last blogged? Hmmm.. Well all the building has now finished, hoorah! Just some random boxes to unpack and the loft of doom needs some reshuffling. The mumborg is still in hopsital, but should be home very soon. As she is rather weak after this latest round of shenanigans, she will be needing a bit more help, so just waiting on some extra equipment for that. Once she is back home, it will be no doubt take a wee while to back into a routine, but luckily I can doodle around whatever schedule we come up with. Looking forward to mumborg being able to make the most of a wheelchair friendly home. Strange to think that in four months, mum has been in and out of intensive care a few times, whilst the house has been knocked down and built back up again. I am sure there is a metaphor in there somewhere.
As time is hurtling by at an almost vomit inducing pace, I thought it was time to catch up a wee bit on my doodologist projects, past, present and future.
A previous project
Using doodles to create quirky business cards, the business in question this time was.... cupcakes.
A simple doodle, plus a wee bit of photoshop/gimp magic, allows one to create a totally unique business card. It may be tempting to use cheap generic business cards, but where is the fun in that. I know that my business cards (seen here) have been great little conversation starters, which has led to business contacts and commissions.
A recent commission
This doodle commission was a birthday surprise, it never fails to warm the cockles of my soul, when people put so much thought into the doodles that they commission me to create. It is without a doubt a wonderfully collaborative process.
The photograph below is a wee clue as to what my largest doodling project has been of late.
Lots more to come about this project, just love these photographs, courtesy of Dogstar Foundation
