#saturdayofficedoodles: crossover

Time to share today’s #saturdayofficedoodles! Via @Peady, on Twitter, who requested “something happy:” And for Alex, on Facebook, who wanted to see Spock and Obi-Wan meeting: That Vulcan Science Directorate spoils everyone’s parade. Paddle your own canoe, folks. Trevor #saturdayofficedoodles is Trevor’s crowd-sourced way to pass some time during a slow Saturday at work. Tweet him @trevor_ccw.

The Tiny Enterprise Project

It all started for me when I was just a tiny person. Games in the sandbox, snowbank, or hedges with Star Trek: The Next Generation action figures. There was no limit to what games I could play, because the rules of Star Trek were such that I could do anything I imagined. Add I get more involved in the lives of Natalie Joy‘s girls, I find myself reflecting on a lot of the play I did as a kid. And for the first time in my life I’m getting pretty…

#saturdayofficedoodles: rise

#saturdayofficedoodles is Trevor’s crowd-sourced way to pass the time on a slow Saturday at the office. The drawings are currently done on a Google/ASUS Nexus 7 in Autodesk Sketchbook Express, using a thoroughly unimpressive off-the-shelf stylus. Chime in on Twitter with the hashtag above, or send your ideas to @trevor_ccw.     I have risen — MDF (@marcoincoming) December 8, 2012 @trevor_ccw there’s your doodle — MDF (@marcoincoming) December 8, 2012 Perhaps not the most original idea on the planet, but this was fun to draw.      

On Success in Canada

This is one of the best descriptions of how I see Canadians, beyond things I’ve said or written: From The Canadian Settler’s Guide, 7th Edition, by Catherine Parr Strickland Traill (1857). You can get this book free via Google Books; I’m reading it right now on my Nexus 7. Where do we stand, politically, compared to this assessment of the character of those who built this country? I feel like we’ve become so partisan lately that we’ve lost the temperate l industriousness that Traill describes. Paddle your own canoe, folks.…

One-Sheet: It’s Okay

Today’s one-sheet shout-out is to the self-described serial blogger, Peter Raaymakers! If you’re on Twitter, give him a follow. I get a yuk or two a day seeing this guy’s tweets stream past. He’s clever, and no wonder–he’s one of them communications guys. Thanks for chiming in when I was crowdsourcing! Paddle your own canoe, guys and gals. Trevor

One-Sheet: Super

Today’s one-sheet shout-out is to Martin Couto, who is a joy to banter with on Twitter. He’s an all-around awesome dude, an avid gamer, and a conaisseur of tasty beverages. He’s leveraging these beverages in an upcoming beers and bistros blog that will be called Opulence & Libation. I won’t link to the partially-completed site, but in the meantime you can follow the brains behind it on the Twitters. Marty also tweets as the Beer Baron, and his O&L partner in crime is at beernbite. Go chat with Martin! You’ll come away with a…

One-Sheet: On Beauty

Today’s one-sheet shout-out goes out to the lovely Nadine Thornhill! Nadine is a super-groovy blogger, sex educator, playwright, burlesque performer, mom and partner, and much more. Go read her fantastic blog, Adorkable Undies, and now watch her video! And encourage her to get on camera more, because she is nine kinds of fabulous. Nine kinds. And not one of those kinds of fabulous involve pants. Paddle your own canoe, guys and gals, Trevor

One-Sheet: Tauntaun

My sister texted me late last night: What’s the internal temperature of a tauntaun? Now, Nerd Sister, being a nerd, frequently texts me things like this. Recently, it was questions about the Sword of Shannara series and why Kryptonite hurts Superman, being that he’s from Krypton. So I treated it like any of her other questions: with a degree of critical integrity. It would have to keep Luke warm in the frigid wastes of Hoth until Han got the shelter up, right? Hmm. Warm enough that it would maintain human core…
