inspiration monday


i love to watch baseball.....and now that the postseason is upon us, i'm in absolute take-me-out-to-the-ballgame heaven. of course, the multi-tasker in me begs to be happy too, so i sit with my graph pad and pencil and doodle while i'm watching the game. and where there's tv, there's lots of "promotional interruptions", and so begins the inspiration.....
have you seen that commercial with those goofy cavemen in the bowling alley? it's a great ad, and quite effective because you only have to see/hear it once and the song will be in your head for the next three days, along with grand visions of three hairy cavemen fist-pumping and high-fiving all over the place! it also offers enough inspiration to create a happy little doodle.....so easy that even a caveman can do it.....(sorry, but you probably knew that was coming....)

if you haven't seen the goofiness and want a good laugh, you can watch it here

What a great idea to doodle while watching sports. Thanks for the tip and I'll have to try it out.

(and yes i love that commercial and the song does get stuck in my head... like it is now because all you had to do was mention it!!!)
~are you rooting for the phillies or the yankees??? i am a big phillies fan, but i live pretty close to philly, so they are my 'local' team.
