Santa's day off

In the spirit of Christmas, i'm guessing this is what Santa does on his day off. :-)

...a few black lines with the MICRON pen...

...a few extra snowflakes with the white pen, and there you have it.
Santa on skates.

As much as i love painting & posting, sometimes, life gets in the way. 
Christmas preparations, work, appointments, books to read, Christmas specials on tv. :-)
I try to make time for art every day, but i do have days where motivation or inspiration (or time!)
seem faaaaar away from my grasp, and on those days, i don't fret over it. I just do something else.
I know there are more quiet nights on the horizon where i'll have time to myself, good music by my side and paints & paper galore. 

So if ever i disappear from blog land for a few days at a time, please know that i'll be back, and i'll be eagerly visiting your blogs as well... so keep posting too, ok? :-)



  1. I love him...I also love the teddy bear that is watching.

  2. Brilliant. Sometimes we need to do something simple to remember how fun art can be.

    You're not alone with the blog thing. After posting every day in November I've managed to go for 10 days without a post. Eeeeeeek! :)

  3. Aw this is sooo cute! I love it.
    I will keep checking back on you! please do the same for me too:)) I was good in November but now with the holidays its hard to stay on top of everything blog-related..we all try, right?
    Keep on keepin on, my friend!

  4. C'est vraiment bien comme illustration, Pauline! Le style graphique me plaît beaucoup. Très simple et très vivant à la fois!

    Je veux aussi prendre le temps pour te remercier pour tes commentaires sur mon blogue. C'est toujours un plaisir de les recevoir. Je l'apprécie grandement! Et par la même occasion, je veux te souhaiter de très joyeuses fêtes et une bonne année! Je te souhaite également beaucoup de bonheur et du bon temps en famille!

  5. This is adorable! I love his playful energy!

    Glad I'm not the only one feeling like I'm letting my blogging go. It's just that time of year... Four more days until I'm off for two weeks and then I'll likely be blogging (and creating)like crazy again (she types with fingers crossed). And not to worry, you're added to my Google Reader for whenever you're able to post.

  6. Very nice...I know what you mean about too much pulling at our time...sometimes I feel like there just isn't enough of me to get everything done.

  7. OH what a cute Santa!! I've been away from Blogland much longer than I realised so I have quite a bit of catching up to do. I haven't been well which seriously effected my desire to be creative. :(

    I love visiting your blog so, even if you disappear for a few days here and there, I'll still be looking forward to your next post, Pauline ~ xo
