RYDER CUP: TEAM EUROPE

RyderCupTeam

So in the aftermath of this years Ryder Cup, the main headlines are still dominated by the controversy surrounding ‘that press conference’, which we illustrated in our last post. But we must not forget, that no matter how badly you feel your captain has performed, you, as players still have to go out & do it on the course. So I wanted to pay tribute to the guys who actually rose above al the pressures of being considered ‘favourites’ & got the job done.

This illustration started as a doodle I did of Jamie Donaldson while on the phone. I thought having the 13 mugshots would make a cool wall print, so if anyone has any interest in having it as a print we might make it so 🙂

Team Europe we salute you!!

BEER WITH DAVE: MCGARGLES RED ALE

McGargles_600px

It was a busy weekend for us here in DoodleMoose Towers & what better way to unwind last night than to have a glass of one of my very favourite Irish Craft Beers which is brewed only down the road in Kilcock, Co.Kildare.

McGargles range of beers really are special but my personal Favourite is Granny Mary’s Red Ale. I’m sure the lads in McGargles celebrated themselves with one or two of these after an action packed weekend at the Irish Craft Beer & Cider Festival.

“Granny Mary is the fierce matriarch of the McGargle family, and it’s said she once knocked a fly off a cows arse with half a glance. She has a temper as fiery as her malt-driven red ale, balanced by bitter hops that give it a well-rounded taste. Without saying a word she could make or break your day, especially if you question her unshaking belief that dolphins aren’t real.”

Have a try & let us know what you think!

BEER WITH DAVE: 8Âş BAREFOOT BOHEMIAN PILSNER

8Degrees

Hi everyone. In the lead up to the Irish Craft Beer Festival in the RDS, Dublin I thought it would be worthwhile sampling & illustrating some of my favourite Irish Craft beers.

To kick it off I have been sipping on 8Âş’s Barefoot Bohemian Pilsner ! It’s bleedin’ delish!

8 Degrees is the brainchild of Kiwi & Aussie duo Cam & Scott. Who’s love of craft beers led them on the path to beery goodness!

Do check out all that they have to offer as their range of brews is extensive & delicious. You can check out their site here: www.eightdegrees.ie

BEER WITH DAVE: ANCHOR SUMMER BEER

This week I have mostly been drinking “Anchor Summer Beer” brought to us by the Anchor Brewing Co. This is a very refreshing American style filtered wheat beer, but I warn you, it is hoppier than Bugs Bunny on National Hopping Day!

As the name suggests it is a special brew released for the Summer months, so it is only available between April & October so snap some up quickly!

I have tried a few of the Anchor Brewing Co.’s beers but there are a whole host more out there. I’ll get there eventually! If you like this Summer Beer I would also recommend their Steam Beer.

 

MONDAY MUNCHIES WEEK 9: ASPARAGUS BENEDICT

Asparagus Benedict Illustrated Recipe

 

Happy Monday everyone..(is that a thing?)

Well we hope you enjoyed you’re weekend & are set for another enjoyable week. We got our week off to a particularly delicious and healthy start by dining on this weeks Monday Munchies recipe from Little Green Spoon.

This Asparagus Benedict really is a touch of indulgence without the usual guilt that accompanies a hollandaise sauce. Indy from Little Green Spoon manages to pack all the flavour into this deliciously healthy alternative.

 

Her recipes focus on being gluten free, dairy free, vegan, raw and paleo, but most importantly hugely flavoursome. We really enjoyed not only creating this illustration, but browsing through Little Green Spoons recipes & sampling the treasures that we found.

 

Check out the rest of her amazing recipes & get inspired here (We would highly recommend the “Fried” Pickles… Yum!!)

It’s TGIF time! And this week it’s time to have a disco party with the one, the only Miguel Angel Jimenez & his now legendary warm up routine. If you don’t know Miguel he is probably the most charismatic golfer on the face of the earth. If he’s not on the links he’s sipping on a nice glass of Rioja or enjoying a fine cigar. We just can’t get enough of him here in DoodleMoose Towers!

Remember, we would love to see some other illustrated gifs, if you’re a digital artist, illustrator or creative and would like to give it a bash, we will showcase yours on our blog along with any links to your site etc! You can send them in to doodlemoosedesigns@gmail.com
