Doodle 156 - I Sea What You Deer There

Ah, back to work, Christmas decor will come down this weekend and I can get on track with my fitness.

I am excited though, next weekend we will be running the Color Run in Orlando, what is the Color Run you ask? I think this video can explain it:

A friend first posted about this on facebook and I just had to do it. We created a team "The Rainicorns" and recruited several friends to go along with it.

Don't get me wrong, I am NOT a runner, at all, I am swimmer, put me in the water and you'll probably have to fight me (if you can catch me), to get out. Tell me to run and I'll probably just flop on my side like a cat wearing a harness and refuse to move... what, you have never seen a cat flop on its side? Fine, here is a video for that:

And yes I have tried this myself and my cats were just as "thrilled" why do they make cat harnesses anyway? A mystery.

Ahem... talk about derailings, anyhow, I will power walk the Color Run and that should jump start my fitness goals and I am really looking forward to hanging out with my peeps as well.

Today I decided to draw something a bit odd:

I Sea What You Deer There - Graphite and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 15 mins.
Tah-Dah! Yeah... I imagine this deer was conjured by a sorcerer who loved both the sea and mountains and didn't want to be without either one.

I love everything about this post - the color run you are doing as Rainicorns (I'm doing a color run in March!), the effect of a leash on a cat (agreed - why did they make this?? Cats do not walk on a leash, they lay down and refuse to move). And the SeaDeer! I love him!!

I just wanted to say that I did a Color Run in San Diego this past November and it was so fun! My friend is still recovering from a badly broken leg, so we all just gimped along with her and it was still crazy fun! Word of warning: you'll be sneezing colored dust for a week! Have fun!
