downtown

This was the song I sang (quite poorly) to myself today while I was trying to figure out what to do with that extra hour we got from Daylight Savings time or as I like to call it…the “the only reason I am on-time for work this week” time. Since inktober ended I’ve been catching…

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…

It’s Time

Lastnight for inktober I drew this Jack Skellington. Then I turned him into a desktop wallpaper for myself…and decided to share it with my tens of readers! Click the image above to download the wallpaper (do I really need to still tell people how to do that? I’m so old). I’m not a huge Halloween…

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…

I set an intention for 2017 to share more of my work. Personal work, not so much the day job stuff I have to do. Graphic design is not as glamorous as one might think…(gasp!) Self -initiated work is much more gratifying somehow. It helps stretch your brain and, honestly, I often use it to…

hello love – NEW printable!

Once upon a time…I ran a teeny tiny Etsy shop that had teeny tiny printables for sale that made a teeny tiny amount of money… I’ve since closed down that little shop. My life got darker and busier and I let the shadow of difficult situations stomp out the light I’ve always carried for these…

slow weekend

I’m not even exaggerating…it took me two years to break out my “new” watercolors and paint something with them. Study above is from last weekend. I’ve not touched the watercolors since. I worked almost 60 hours this week at the day job. Yesterday (Saturday) I slept almost the entire day and today my inflammation is…

holly jolly

After my last post (about being a light in so much dark), I decided to make the most of the weekend and get my Christmas cards ready. They are adorable, I am biased of course since every year the card has my dog on it in some form or another. This year the cats also…

Ina Hattenhauer

I love the holiday themed animated gifs over at Hello Heute (illustrator Ina Hattenhauer’s blog). Some of them she paired with songs. For example, the animation below was paired with Baby It’s Cold Outside. Too adorable for words. TOO DAMN ADORABLE. Visit Ina’s blog for more of her more recent work. She’s wonderful! (most of…
