No.1 The Larch

Useful information from Monty Python
This is (as it should be) a bit of a silly one. I don't really know what got me thinking about Monty Python but I always like the ridiculous, seemingly unconnected, in between bits. "How to recognise different trees from quite a long way away," is one of those bits that always makes me wonder where the Pythons' came up with it. Is there a book somewhere in the world with this title? Perhaps there is a whole series broken down into volumes covering all the major continents (except Antartica of course, it would be very empty)? Has anyone ever needed to identify a tree from quite a long way away?

Regardless if you want to get a head start on recognising trees make sure you get hold of this design. Its available from Redbubble and Society6 on T-shirts, prints, iPhone cases and stickers. All the details are on the Doodle Dojo Store.

Ood One Out

One of these Ood is doing his own thing, one of these Ood is not the same
Can you spot the Ood one out? Hold on, what was I talking about? Why is there an empty space? What are these pen marks doing all over my arm?

As you can see I am continuing on with my recent Doctor Who obsession. It was one of those moments, (not really 'eureka' but along those lines) when I realised that Ood is a very similar word to odd. From that realisation to thinking of an odd one out design with Ood (oods?) in it was just seconds. Then I obviously had to set about actually doing it, which took considerably longer.

I also got a bit carried away and decided to do one with a human dalek in it. Just because they look a bit similar to Ood in a funny sort of way.

The Silent version is available on Redbubble and Society6. So is the Dalek version (Redbubble and Society6) and all the details are on the Doodle Dojo Store (Dalek and Silent).

Evil Snow

Snow is usually so pretty, then Doctor Who comes along and spoils it.

You might (or might not) know that I like a bit of Doctor Who. The Christmas special is one of the best bits of Christmas TV for me and this years was no exception. The Snowmen was a great story and of course introducing a new companion is always good. For some reason though the bit that struck me most was the snowflake with the horrible face zooming toward the camera on some of the scene changes. Who thinks that stuff up? It made me want to do my own version and so here it is.

This one is already up on Society6 and Redbubble, check on the Doodle Dojo store for all the details.

Death comes to us all in the end
Terry Pratchett's Discworld is one of those things that everyone really should know about. If you haven't read any of it I highly recommend getting hold of a book or several and getting stuck in. One of the characters that makes a lot of appearances (as well as starring in several books himself) is Death. As usual for a grim reaper, he uses and scythe and rides a horse. Not a skeletal horse, they are too uncomfortable apparently, but a white horse called Binky. He is also a big fan of cats and talks in small caps.

This is my idea of what he looks like. I'm enjoying do these overly ornate borders, I think I might have to do some more! Its good for getting in other references and just some extra stuff to keep the eyes busy.

This design (along with a whole bunch of others) is available at Redbubble and Society6. You can find all the details you need over at the Doodle Dojo Store.
