I had a rare opportunity to sit home in my PJs all day today and, of course, managed to work for a few hours and unpack boxes for another couple of hours. That’s just me. I can’t sit around all day and do nothing. Today turned out quite well. I feel rejuvenated. So enjoy the time lapse video of this spunky doodle being created.

Unemployment sucks. Let’s take advantage of it by doodling our brains out.

Phew… this one took me a while. Pretty much all week. I hope you enjoy it. I tried a few different zooms on the video this time. Let me know if you prefer the wide angle where you can see the whole drawing or the close-ups so you can see all the details.

I started this doodle art drawing and… kind of liked it. So I decided, even after starting the doodle, to do a time lapse video. I haven’t done one in a while because… you know… it requires effort. Please accept my apologies for a sorta half time lapse video of a not-my-best doodle drawing.

hahaha I really sold you on this one, didn’t I?


Later, in another post maybe, I’ll share the final image. But for now, discover it through the video.

I’ve had a little obsession with time-lapse photography for quite a while now but it had fizzled out when I had no practical use for it. I just tried it out again while drawing one of my doodles and… my obsession is burning strong again! I can no longer draw without a camera over my shoulder. haha However, I will work on better lighting. Our living room has one lamp. Bleh. And without getting all official and stuff with a desk (which would make this very much like work instead of play), I’ll work the best I can with what I’ve got. Enjoy!
