Today's Google doodle is Father's Day.



Happy Father’s Day to dads of all shapes, sizes, and species! Today’s Doodle represents the universality of familial love.  I had a few separate concepts, some with animals, some with people, and looking at them all, I thought it would be fun to try to tie them together.

I was working on Mother’s and Father’s day simultaneously, so it made sense to keep them in a similar style and theme. Plus, once I started coming up with animal-related antics it was hard to stop.

Once I settled on the concept I did a quick rough pass at animation to make sure it would work visually. I decided to go with a watercolor texture because I think there’s something very comforting and familiar about it, that shows a more human hand.

Thank you to dads everywhere, for carrying us until we've learned to stand on our own, and sometimes even after.

Same doodle here in the Netherlands. Thought it would be, so did not post it here.
I can do upside down chocolate moo things!

This one was used yesterday for summer solstice Russia and a few other countries, though not the US, and today for summer solstice in Korea.

 


Sticky fingers? It must be summer!

Today marks the beginning of the year’s sweetest season, a time of hot days, short nights, and soaking up the sun: the Summer Solstice.

What is Solstice, you ask? it’s an astronomical event that creates the longest day of the year in one of the two hemispheres. Today, the Earth’s northern half will be bathed in light for the greatest percentage of a single day. Giving us all a good excuse to stay outside for another hour. Or two. Or until the fireflies come out!

So get out of the house, slather on some sunscreen, and enjoy the summer, before it melts away…

Doodle by guest artist, Kirsten Lepore.





Yesterday was also winter solstice for Brazil.



Winter is a paradox. Some call it cold and unwelcoming. Temperatures drop a tad too much. And our teeth might chatter a little more than we’d like.

But when you think about it, chilly weather brings people together. Whether we’re bundled up for  a snow day, huddled around a campfire, or sharing a home-cooked meal, Winter offers a million ways to enjoy the warmth of those closest to us.

So today, on the shortest day of the year, welcome Winter with a friend, or family.

Of course they know. They, and the NSA. The latter also know what kind of cake you like.

Today's google doodle is fourth of july.



Some of the best things that America stands for are our simple and timeless traditions. Our national pastime. Our delight in apple pie. Our pioneering spirit. Our appreciation of grilling done right, and the freedom to do it wrong: halfway raw or charred to bits—it's your choice!

When creating this Doodle, early on I decided to focus on the classic, folding, aluminum, lawn chair. These chairs are often part of many 4th of July events—whether at a backyard barbecue, along a parade route or at an outdoor concert and fireworks show.

You can see an early, quick color sketch (below) where I just had the chairs. In some ways, I prefer this simpler composition.



I spent a lot of my summers sitting on a lawn chair with my neighbors, friends and family. We used to get together every 4th of July for a big neighborhood block party. When we would get up, the neighborhood pets would often steal our seats. Especially if there were any tantalizing crumbs left behind. (There usually were!)
