Finding my groove with the “Doodle bug”

This was a nice little transition piece to do. The simple design and small size gave me a chance to get reacquainted with my hammer and hardie and nippers, as well as get some practice using thinset. I’ll be honest, I was NOT loving the thinset and could frequently be heard pining for my Weldbond (oh Weldbond, Weldbond, wherefore art thou Weldbond?).

The piece was inspired by a little graffiti doodle I saw on the mean streets of Gatineau, Québec (where I work), hence the name “Doodle bug.” The original doodle disappeared long ago, as graffiti is wont to do, but this little stone and glass rendition is here to stay. I’m also pleased to report that this guy quickly found a new home with a young couple expecting their first child.
