Punksy Phil Didn't See It

That's right, "Punxsutawney Phil," the Groundhog Day Woodchuck, did not see his shadow on February 2. This is unusual. Most years, he sees the shadow and goes back underground. As the legend has it, if Phil does not see his shadow, then spring will come early. But what is the truth about this? Here it is. If Phil sees his shadow, we will have a month and a half more winter. If Phil does not see his shadow, winter will end in six weeks.

I draw one of these little guys every Groundhog Day. I have been experimenting with doodles, which give me permission to draw things I don't usually draw because they are insignificant. I can't always be Serious.

Doodle away! It is good for you! Ignore those old wives tales about it making you go blind or growing hair on your palms..or was that something else?

Your art is a lot more fun when you _aren't_ Seriou. Leave Serious to those to whom it matters, who don't have anything better to occupy their minds with.
