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:
Be-leaf in Yourself (posted on Canada Day, of course)
At the End of My Rope
We’re looking forward to celebrating another anniversary!

Found this silly doodle and thought I’d share:

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:
Fly Me to the Moon
Pigs Can Fly
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:
Walking on Sunshine
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!

Yesterday, my sister Em and I launched a new project that’s quite near and dear to our hearts: The D.A.D. (Drawing A Day) Project. It’s a dedication to our father who is fighting Stage 4 colon cancer and a creative way for us to support him and the Canadian Cancer Society. Through our daily drawings, we hope to do some fundraising while bringing a smile to people’s faces. Hope you get a chance to check out our site and take a peek at what we’re up to.
With this new project on the go, I won’t be able to keep up with my CSOTDs (Creative Somethings of Day) – as it is, I’m already a week behind! So my plan is to post CSWICs (Creative Somethings When I Can) – not sure how often this will be but I’ll do my best not to disappoint.
Thanks to everyone who checked out my CSOTDs regularly … it’s been fun and challenging coming up with them for the past year and a bit!

How’s this for a cute and clever idea for a puppet? I got to meet him in Vancouver (thanks to Luke) and hope the pic does the real fella justice:
How cute is this puppet?

And the word for today’s Creative Something of the Day was given to me by Alexandra – thanks for the inspiration …
