Foodles

I’m on a cooking / baking binge right now and realised that I needed to do bring some food doodles to the blog. Foodles? No.

I thought the binge would last maybe the first 3-5 days of my summer vacation, but now I’m on week 3 and still baking away.

I made my own sourdough starter right before going on our bike trip and was very worried if it would survive 2 weeks in the fridge (which the recipe said it would).

My initial excitement over the witchcraft that is sourdough (where do the bubbles and the yeast and the wonderful sour smell come from?*) led to this little doodle in my notebook:

From weird goo to lovely loaf!

It seems my starter survived and I’ve fed it and baked some wonderful sourdough loaves since we got home.

It seems sourdough is somewhat of a trend (at least on YouTube and Instagram) so now I spend quite a bit of time checking out recipes and images of beautiful bread. I really like the show “It’s Alive with Brad” on the Bon Appetit YouTube channel and have watched the sourdough episode with Brad and Claire like 5 times.

Painting a couch cat

I don’t paint very often, because I’m always clumsy and the paint gets everywhere. But today I felt like it and made this relaxed couch cat:

I haven’t been drawing a lot lately because I’ve been on a bikepacking vacation for a couple of weeks with my boyfriend (including some days spent chilling with my sister’s cat in a house by the beach 😎). But now I’m back with all my paper and pens and computer and stuff, ready to doodle and maybe paint some more. And hopefully be as relaxed as couch cat until I go back to work next week.

(I didn’t realise while painting this that the cat is either really big or the couch is really small 😂)

Napping bag

I love it when summer is a bit chilly and windy (like in Denmark at the moment) so I can hang out outside in the shade in my sleeping bag.

We’re testing out our camping gear at the moment to prepare for a bike packing trip next week. So I need to REALLY check if my sleeping bag is good.

We spent two nights in our new tent in the garden, which was so fun that it almost made me want to stay home. But (luckily) we have family and friends to visit, so we have to pack up the tent and get going soon.

Blob dogs

These puppers are only now realising that they’re on summer break. And it’s a very blobby feeling! (Yes I’m on summer break from today and my brain is a blob).

You’re welcome to print out the blobby dogs and put them on your office door (or wherever you work) to let your colleagues know when you’re away for the summer. I put a less creative tiny note on my door today, since I hadn’t made these blobs yet. Maybe I’ll make a “back to work” or “Hello I’m back” version in August.

This blob dog was the first one I doodled:

It showed up in the middle of another drawing and inspired the making of the rest of the pups, so I decided to honour it with its own colours (which very much makes it look like a balloon animal).
