Sleepovers are cool. But for some reason, once you’re a grown-up, it’s just called “staying with a friend.”

Well, I’m not having it. Because I don’t feel like being a grown-up today.

I drew this during a weekend sleepover with a cool friend (who nearly lost her cats to our ferocious beast.)

Remember these doodles?

They’re both now being used in the chocolate decor atop and around European pastries at an international gourmet chocolate company.

My drawings were scanned in and sent to a company that prints them with colored cocoa butter onto sheets of plastic. A mold is then laid over the plastic sheet, filled with chocolate and left to set. When the mold is removed, the disks of chocolate are left stuck to the sheet. As they’re pulled off, the cocoa butter design transfers to the chocolate disk. Pretty cool, right?


Yeah. I went there. Whipped this baby up in just a few minutes. What have you been up to lately?

I’ve been busily working on finally putting together a weekly planner doodle art coloring book. (That’s a really long name for such a small book.) I’m hoping to have it ready in about a week. Until then, enjoy this randomly non-abstract drawing I just finished. 

Because this describes the week I’ve had.


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.
