In my latest Lines and Limericks drawing video, I created a freehand drawn chef spot art illustration. I was actually multi-tasking, too, since I had a batch of Christmas cookies in the oven. ‘Tis the season, afterall!

The inside scoop…
Even though I’m getting a tiny bit more comfortable with talking on camera, I still find the video medium challenging. Setting aside the frustration of the constant background noise in New York City, it’s also hard to focus the camera on yourself when you’re not standing in the frame. In this video, the “glamour” haze (i.e. out of focus face) wasn’t my intention; however, you will be able to admire many of our holiday ornaments and DVD collection in GREAT detail.
Fortunately, the drawing parts of my videos always give me great pleasure, which is a good thing.
In year’s past, I baked GOBS of cookies. Since we’ve switched over to eating more of a gluten-free diet, I’ve tried to find good substitute recipes for my favorite holiday cookies. You’ll see these ginger snaps towards the end of my video. And if you like ginger snaps but want to keep to paleo or gluten-free eating, I really think the recipe is a winner!
The verdict’s still out on the gluten-free almond crescents (picture above.) We’ll have those for dessert tonight. If they’re good, I’ll post a link to the recipe here.
