doodle dump

to borrow a phrase from a favorite sketch dumper, today i'm doing one of my own! from here follows a mishmash of pieces i've recently re-lettered, re-doodled, re-written, re-painted, re-something-ed, as well as a few new ones...

doodle-dump-secret-door

secret door was aching for a calmer, more serene feel to it...

doodledump-tempted

the space once occupied, one i did long ago for an illustration friday prompt, called for a re-do(odle)...i liked the words but not the drawing...

doodledump-storm

re-sized and re-lettered storm...just felt like it...

doodle-dump-wonderland

wonderland wanted a cheerier life...

doodle-dump-santa-fe

when in rome wanted a bit of company in my travel folder so i added a painting of santa fe...

doodledump-paris

...and a jumbled up doodlescene of paris. pardon the excess kitsch factor on this one. i couldn't help myself!

all of these are now in the shop as 5x7 doodleprints and magnets. or they should be, at least. great to see all the list-a-holics in that last post! thanks everyone for stopping by - so excited to see old friends and new peeps alike who want to play along!

I like the space less occupied... makes me think not of spaces (haven't had too many of those yet) but of boys... when you strike up a conversation with an ex you haven't talked to in awhile and think, "why did i leave?" and after a few minutes you think, "oh, right. good choice." :)

I wanted to tell you...

Well, the one about the storm touched me so deeply that as I type this there are tears rolling down my face.

Thank you--your work is so beautifully unique.

aimee said...

ha, my doodles are full of mixed messages - if you did a sum of all the words in my shop, my bet is they would cancel each other out in the end.

the windmill, c'est le moulin rouge!

Christine E-E said...

I like "a single flower". Because sometimes a single flower really can make my day. I am so happy in spring when I see my first flowers peeping through the ground! Dreariness is over and hope and renewal have sprung. People can be those flowers, too.

LOVE

LOVE!

I think the elements of kitch are necessary in anything Paris. The Storm doodle is amazing. Somehow you take a devastating moment and put a hopeful spin on it.
...and I need myself a secret door quick!

My mom recently framed and displayed the "When in Rome" print I gave her a while back. And, um, Santa Fe just happens to be her other favorite city. So, Ms. Aimee...will that be available as a print, too? If so, I'm thinking I might have already found her Mother's Day gift for next year!
