"Sleepy Okey" Drawing by BZTAT

Today’s doodle may stray from Wikipedia’s definition below, but, in mind, it is still a doodle. Instead of doodling on paper these days, I doodle on my iPhone, playing with different photos with photo apps. Today’s drawing started as one of these “digital doodles” and I added to it with some pencil sketching on a print. You can see an album of other digital doodles here.

A doodle, according to Wikipedia, is “an unfocused drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes.” My doodles often have some focus to them, but they are less formal than a regular drawing. Sometimes the images are somewhat cartoonish and sometimes they are just scribbles and line formations.

For each day from Dec. 1 – 15 (2011) I will make a December Doodle drawing and hold an auction for it here on the blog. These drawings will make nice gifts, and if you want, I will gift wrap and mail to whomever you would like the gift(s) to go. And since animals always are in greater need as winter takes hold, I will donate 10% of the proceeds to a registered animal charity.

Which charity? You help me decide! Post the charity that you would like me to support on my Facebook Fanpage, and I will randomly select from all the submissions on Dec. 15, 2011. (Charities must be for animal rescue, in the United States, and must have a 501(c) non-profit status.)

  1. I’ll bid $50! I really love this one! (I love all your work you know, but this one really resonates with me for some reason…)

  2. This auction is now closed. Looks like it’s yours uncontested, Jill!
