Happy Halloween and Fridays to all!

I don't have any new work to post yet. I have some sketches done but I have yet to get motivated enough to go scan them in and work on them... bleh, I blame the sudden change in weather here in Ohio.

But anyways, I had a print featured in a cute little blog today, Imagination in Flight, my 'We're Happy Here in the Woods' camping print. :)

Have a terrifically awesome halloween, all.

You can also find my art here...

I have a established a little shop over at Paper n' Stitch. I was a part of it when they first opened it's 'doors' a while ago, but have re-established in hopes it will help sales for the Christmas season. It's a great little site and the owner, Brittni, is wonderful to work with. If you're looking for something to do and don't want to be 'overwhelmed' by Etsy, I highly suggest taking a look.

I don't have anything new to post, so here's something that made me smile.

Another consecutive post, woot.

I filled up another sketchbook, so before putting her into the pile of other old sketchbooks, here's some randomness from in between her pages.

Also, new print. This blue bike. I made another version too with type, but it's not listed for if there's interest, I'll put it up. The top one is in the shop.

Time to watch a rerun of Glee. G'night.

I must admit....

I'm feeling very down lately. I've been sick over a week and haven't been able to get on Ruby (my bike, my new love) and go riding. It really clears my head and helps me sort life out and get inspired. I think that's a lot of whey I feel so low. Sigh. Being boxed up on the couch while I hack and cough and pop Mucinex DM does not do well for my creative side.
I am trying to market my art more and get my name out, but it's really hard in a world full of so many talented illustrators and crafters. But it's the dream, to live off that talent have that I paid soooo much money to fine tune in school. Oh, I have a major case of the Mondays.
Sorry for the personal bit, I just need to get that out there to the people.

Adventures with Cherry

This isn't at all art related, but I've been sick all week and haven't felt well enough to ride my bike, so Cherry and I went on a walk in some fields that haven't been turned into housing developments yet.

Also here's a picture of our place decked out for Halloween. :)

And here's my new bike!! I named her Ruby.

I've taken ill, but here is some art.

Yes, I'm suffering from a lousy cold...itchy eyes, sore throat, coughing... UGH. I took off work early to eat chicken noodle soup, take meds, and then pass out on the couch, which just SUCKED because it was such a pretty day. Sigh. So, after some napping I huddled up in my studio and got some prints in the shop. Oh, also I redid my blog..but it might change again, I'm not dedicated to the new layout.

I'd like feedback for the Rise & Shine print. I don't usually do type-based prints, yet I work with typography all day at my day job. Any thoughts would be nice.
Hope everyone is doing better than I am!

A Fox and a Cabin

...two new prints in thy shoppe.

I think foxes are making a comeback. Foxes might be the new owl.
Also, I came home to a paddywagon in front of my house thanks to my always amusing neighbors. I can't wait to move someday, but I will miss their tangles with the Columbus Police.
What else? I kind of want a Dumbo Rat. They have babies at the pet store...and I have a soft spot for their big dopey ears. I might do a rat print soon...though I'm sure there's not much call for that.
Also, I bought a bicycle. But it's being shipped so, I'll have to post it's picture later. Yay, bikes.
Alright enough...I'm tired and cranky and morning traffic lately has been awful so I better go to bed to get up earlier than usual.
