Remembering Those Snowy Sunsets

Snowy Sunsets

I grew up on the Canadian prairies and we played in the snow all day.

But, I especially loved walking outside when the sun was going down.

Sometimes, the snow-drifts would catch some amazing colours .

Doodles Inspired By The Movie “Dumbo”

Elephant Doodle
Over a year ago, I saw a documentary on John Lasseter.

He’s the creative genius behind Pixar.

There was a great part where he talked about Dumbo … his favourite movie.

He loved the cartoonish feel of the old film.

And back then, Disney wasn’t scared of heavy emotion.

Walt Disney used to say, “There should be a laugh for every tear.”

Around a year ago, we rented the movie and Jade absolutely loved it.

She was 2 and a half and loved the all characters.

For the next week, I drew Dumbo inspired imagery for Jade (shown below).

Jade was even motivated to try … below is her drawing of Dumbo.

Sleeping Lines Doodling To Dreamland

This is an old image Jade and I created together.

Sometimes, we like to make random marks and see what happens.

The lines are drifting off to sleep … going  to dreamland.

Singing Happy Songs

A fun, happy drawing from my 3 year old daughter Jade.

We sing, play, and dance whenever we can.

Her happiness is truly contagious!

I just love her!

Jade named and drew this fun doodle.

This guy lives in the city and likes to make toys.

He likes to eat purple and pink jelly beans.

Christmas Center of Attention

Christmas Tree / 1

Three is such a wonderful age and Jade has been fascinated by our Christmas tree.

Our family stares at the lights for hours and we talk about the all different ornaments.

There are a few gifts under the tree and Jade likes guessing what they are.

It’ll be so fun around the tree and finally unwrapping our presents.

Candy Cane On The Brain

Candy Cane Lane

Jade’s perfected the art of eating a candy cane.

We both ate candy canes together and we talked about the cool peppermint taste.

Surprisingly, she’s very patient and savours it.

And she looooves crunching the last skinny parts.

Yum !!!

Noises of Christmas Past

Noises Of Christmas Past

Bing! Bang! Click! Clang!

Christmas in 1974. It started as the funnest, loudest Christmas ever. I really wanted that guitar. And I also received an amazing Fisher Price family camper.

Christmas Camper

Later that day, my dad opened up the camper. He took out the cool clicking noise because it was driving him CRAZY.

When I later met my wife, I couldn’t believe she had the SAME camper … and it still made that SAME clicking noise.

Lucky!

Retro Family Camper

Almost 40 years later, my daughter Jade LOVES playing with the camper.

CLICK! click click CLICK! click click CLICK !!!

Hmmm … Where’s that screwdriver?
