We are One – © Sue O’Kieffe 2010
How can we not love social networking when we are given the opportunity to connect with amazing creative lovebugs? This particular doodle came through while listening to singer/songwriter Athena Burke sing her jazzy bluesy song, We Are One. You can listen to her, too, right here.
For this particular mandala- inspired doodle, I used crayons, crayola markers and twinkling H2O’s (for the shiny white bits – hard to see that in the scan – and the green bits, which I see as windows to the heart).
So much fun to create, and even better, so much fun to remember that yes, indeedy, We Are One.

Turned out to be a nice little tribute to all things autumnal, don’t you think?

Inspiration with her Familiar
I have wanted to take the time to color one of Tammy Vitale’s images for quite a while. A couple of days ago she posted this image on her blog for us to download. It was so much fun to give myself a different kind of me time and imagine who this goddess was, what colors she would wear, and what her cat would look like. My inner clothes designer had so much fun. And of f course, this goddess was wearing some of Tammy’s fabulous jewelry. (Don’t you recognize the turquoise?)
Party Favor – © Sue O’Kieffe 2010
In the spirit of full disclosure, I want to let you know I completed this doodle over the weekend, before I even decided to participate in this year’s AEDM. I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided I wouldn’t do it this year. How could I miss out on all the fun and all the great creative experiments? Besides, Sue Doodles was born during AEDM 2008. I have a tradition to uphold.
This doodle reminds me of a party hat. Or maybe one of those hats a fairy princess wore. It just evokes feelings of frivolity and gaiety. Even the spider wove an extra wonderful web.
What better way to kick off this year’s AEDM? If you don’t have any idea what I’m talking about, go here for all the deets.
