just monkeying around…

Here is the thing. Our readership numbers are climbing, but everybody is so damn quiet, it’s scary!!!

How about we do a little Holiday Giveaway, to stir things up? I will send my brand spanking new Umbrella Tree collage (yes, yes, I did get my inspiration from these pictures) to one of my loyal readers who actually SAY SOMETHING!!!

Here are the rules. If you’d like to receive this lovely collage, signed and dated from yours truly you:

1. Leave a comment under this post. Anything will do. Link to your own blog is ok. Link to some other page you think we should feature here – great! Any ideas, updates, requests, guest-authoring and collaboration proposals – even better!

2. You stumble/digg/bookmark/whatever, either Doodlage or Doodlage.Etsy, or better yet – BOTH. Oh, and feel free to blog/twitter/post about it anywhere you feel like it. Now, this part, is totally up to you guys, I can’t really check if you do either one of the things I’m asking you about, but if you do, it will help me out tremendously!

3. I’ll go home happy knowing that people who read my posts actually EXIST and will pull one name out of the electronic hat to pick the winner by the end of this week. Again, this is not a print, knock-off, store-bought reproduction. This is the real deal, I made it 2 days ago with my own two hands :)

So, ready, set GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I’ll be very sad if you still don’t “say” anything…)

    Your work is beautiful. I’ve been reading your posts. I’m not just posting to try to win the prize, although it’s lovely, I really want you to know that I enjoy the posts you make! I’ll try to stop being so silent in the future :)

    LOL I’ve been wondering about my readers, too. A few of them are fairly talkative, but even they’ve been quiet lately. It’s probably the whole holiday season making everyone crazy.

    I like the monkey at the top of the page.

    Wow, that is a beautiful collage! I’d love to own this (and would also be amused to do so, since I’m dating someone named Randall…hehe.) What book did the page come from?

    Your art is so UNIQUE. I love it. I have joined your community of closet doodlers LOL!
    My doodles are not nearly as interesting – I am a dollmaker.
    Feel free to stop by my blog anytime.

    It’s time for me to come out from lurking too. I have been here reading for a while. Great idea to find out who is here.

    Well this is my first lurk… only because I am being followed by you on twitter so I decided to do some snooping to see what your up to!… and of course who doesn’t like a free give away!

    And I have to say that I am an art teacher and we had to do a senior project to get our degree and I did mine on doodling! So I am very interested in your art.

    also …. I am trying to spread the word about mine… so:

    “anything” haha

    I lurk here for quite a while. The featured doodles inspired me to let my mind go wild and just draw something whenever I have an artblock. 😀

    Yeah, I really should be more vocal. I talk to you on twitter though :-)
    I have been meaning to tell you that your work has inspired me to keep a sketchbook again (and actually use it regularly). I have been an artist all my life, but 4 years of business school kinda killed my creativity for a while. I am now a graphic designer and working hard to get back to the creativity levels I once had. Doodling has done wonders for that :-)

    Keep up the good work!
