The folks at Google have taken their artistry to new heights with their new doodle. Colorful, striking and detailed, the 17 illustrations took 250 hours to complete. They will run through December 25th. It is clear that Bing, which has a new picture on its front page every day, has forced Google to step its game up – incorporating historic and special occasions with its logo. And over the last year in particular, Google has done this quite effectively.
