begin again

How are things? My things have finally completely been moved from the old and tiny townhouse to the old-but-new-to-me flip house. Remember when ‘flip’ was synonymous with ‘nightmare’? I do, it was before all those HGTV spin-offs showed us the good things about flipping and that not all flippers are scam artists. There’s not been…

happy christmas

#Derek‘s favourite film ever is A #Christmas Carol. Here he is to tell you the story. pic.twitter.com/zgWtg3XNXe — Derek (@DerekTVShow) December 20, 2017   Super quick post, I’m a bit under the weather this week but this Derek clip made me laugh, so I’m sharing it with you. I’m “skipping” Christmas this year. There’s just…

over the river and to the beach

For the past four years or so I’ve sent illustrated Christmas cards to friends, family and clients.  Last year I also made ecards, basically, adding snow and creating a gif then emailing or texting to the people that cheer me on throughout the year. Since we’ve moved to a new house I decided that I’d…

new digs

Almost completely moved in to the new place (did I mention I’m moved/moving?). There are boxes everywhere and lots of things need to be done, but I’m damn tired and doing my best. Which is all you can do, right? 2017 drained my energy and I’m running on empty. The internet trolls, the hypocrites, the…

made it!

Inktober is officially over! We made it to NOVEMBER! Only one month left in the 2017 Hurricane Season! (Hurricanes, BOO!) Speaking of boo, last night I attempted to give out candy for Halloween. It was the first time in a while (ahem, 6 years) and I had a “perfect” plan for participating without having people…

faux fall

There was a time when I posted at least every Friday here about my week or the weekend or just silly thoughts that had been rolling around in my brain. I’m getting myself on a better schedule so I can go back to regular posting in November through to the new year. Hopefully they won’t…

catnap fever

Wow, I’m tired! It’s my own damn fault for staying up too late, working on drawings and fighting with the cat. I’ve slacked off a bit on Inktober this week, recharging my brain I guess. Tonight I’m going to try some ink washes instead of just the ink pen…I’m hoping I’m just a bit tired…

what’s this?

Day 10 of Inktober already. I’ve not missed a day yet, and I’m also a bit loony right now from staying up late every night. My dog is also not impressed. He has a strict bedtime schedule (10pm on the dot) and I’ve mess that up for him entirely. I still prefer my pencil drawings…

sketch therapy

In August I bought myself a small chunky sketch book with light brown kraft paper pages. Since then I’ve been choosing random pages in it to sketch people and animals. The first thing I drew was a horse, then some faces, then a frog and some more faces. I do use references sometimes, especially for…
