I would love to see this in person one day — it would probably make me cry.
It’s hard to believe that The D.A.D. Project is a little over a month old (official anniversary date was July 7, 2010). Em and I are still having fun coming up with our weekday creations and sharing them with everyone. Our guest artists have also been extremely generous in their donations and support – thanks again to everyone.
If you haven’t seen them already, here are a few of the illustrations that I came up with in the past couple of weeks:
We’re looking forward to celebrating another anniversary!
Week #2 with The Dad Project went really well: by the end of it, we had sold 17 prints (including the two donated by our Feature Friday guest artists, John Bagnell and High on Craft) and received some generous direct donations through our Canadian Cancer Society Team webpage. Thanks to everyone for their generous and enthusiastic support!
Here are the two illustrations that I came up with for last week:
I guess being airborne was really on my mind or something!
Thanks for continuing to tune in 🙂
So our first week of The D.A.D. Project is coming to a close and I think we’re off to a pretty good start. Em and I took turns posting drawings and today we feature another artist who will be donating a piece of artwork of their own.
In case you haven’t had a chance to check out the D.A.D. website, these are the two illustrations that I came up with for this week:
We managed to sell two prints and received our first direct donation through our team page on the Canadian Cancer Society website. Thanks again to everyone for all your support, kind words and enthusiasm with our fundraising project!

Despite the warmer weather, I recently saw a kid wearing a very cute knitted hat which inspired today’s CSOTD:
You should check out www.evilmadscientist.com which has a bunch of crazy, fun and interesting “experiments” that you can easily do yourself, such as:
And so I drew from the above for inspiration for today’s Creative Something of the Day:
For anyone out there with an iPhone, iTouch or iPad, www.poolga.com offers a crazy collection of wallpapers by a variety of artists. I don’t have one of these gadgets myself but I had fun checking out all the cool and funky artwork. Here are a couple of fun ones – hope you enjoy checking out others on the site:
And now for today’s Creative Something of the Day:
It’s been fun getting back into playing Scrabble, both the old-fashioned board game style as well as on my CCS’s new iPhone … amazing how you’re able to create a whole new vocabulary of your own when you’re desperate.
Seems fitting then that I’m about to start reading Word Freak by Stefan Fatsis, a novel about Scrabble and the many interesting people who play it … it’s been recommended to me by a couple of people so I’m very curious to explore this underworld.
And when I received the words for today’s CSOTD, seemed normal to me that this dude just popped into my head in a creepy kind of way:
