School started back up (in Florida) and pretty soon it will be “Fall”…it will still be 75 degrees, but we’ll all pretend it’s not. We’ll switch from ice tea/coffee to hot pumpkin chai whatevers, ditch the flip flops for boots (short and tall), then change out our chachkis (tiny gourd, anyone?) We tend to be…Read More
Loving this animated Gilbert typeface from Animography. You can download the static Gilbert font (free!) from Type with Pride. The animated font is also free, if you’re into Adobe After Effects (you so fancy!) Hasn’t it been the shortest longest year ever? Lately, my anxiety is at level 8 or 9. Feeling overwhelmed by the…Read More
The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually.
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.
#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…Read More
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…Read More
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…Read More
My beagle won’t poop in the rain. Sunday morning there was a storm that included flash flood warnings. I knew then (at 6am when the obnoxiously loud weather alarm sounded on my cell) that this was going to be a rough day for my little muppet. I’m not sure if it’s a beagle trait, but…Read More
Struggling a bit lately. I need to be honest because not admitting I’m feeling wobbly means staying stuck. I’m angry with myself, overthinking, overly critical, unsure about how best to push through so I’m taking things a day at a time, sometimes half a day. I’m frustrated and tired. “Depression is an impeccable sadness.” I…Read More

Such conditions may affect someone’s ability to relate to others and function each day. Each person will have different experiences, even people with the same diagnosis.” Did you know? Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the…Read More
