Taking it One Line at a Time.

A highly untrained Canadian doodler trying to be creative every day. I post the strange & varied results here.

Things We Keep #2 ~ a trio of my Molars  (circa 1982)
We all have them. That object which has followed us through the years and bides it’s time in a box at the back of the closet or stashed in the corner of your sock drawer. No matter how many times you move, you can’t bring yourself to throw it out. Sometimes it’s a sentimental attachment…but at other times there really is no good explanation as to why we can’t bin it.

My cloth avatar is now complete and ready for our trip to Spain on Friday :)
Next stop: FIBA Basketball World Cup!!
It’s Buskers time in my city and that means it’s time to take the camera out for some practice. 

My travelling avatars

Earlier this summer I made a Paper Dollie of myself for taking selfies on a trip to FInland & found that it was problematic (floppy, hard to focus on in the breeze, not enough hands to hold it still  while using the ipad and delicate, transparent etc) 

So for my upcoming trip I am making a Canvas Dollie. Pira Ver.2 .  We’ll see how this goes….

Things We Keep #1
New, ongoing, project I’ve ‘finally’ launched which will feature photographs of completely useless items that for one reason or another, I’m loathe to part with.

Went to Detroit this week for the Pirates vs Tigers series and this tiger-go-round at the park is inspired and all kinds of wonderful. Never mind the baseball….I wanna RIDE a Tiger! :D

My brain after two weeks of linguistic immersion in Finland….thanks to all members of my extended family for their patience with the shameless manner in which I abused the Finnish Language.
