News: What's going on?

From our trip to Humbolt Redwood National Forest
So it hasn't been as long as I thought since the last time I posted an update. That's good. I like to try to keep things fairly regular so people are paying attention to meeeeeee.

As far as health & things go, I feel like I'm having a bit of an up-turn in energy & productivity. Altho, if I try to do too many things at once I will fall into a flare, so maybe I should be a little more skeptical about this sudden explosion of Being Able To Do Things. 

Point is, life is feeling less worse at the moment, & I'm trying to get all I can out of that without actively hurting myself. It's a very delicate balancing act & it involves working on aspects of myself that I'm not as familiar with... like... delayed gratification.

Oh well, laying low means I can get some administrative tasks done... right? Or Netflix. Probably Netflix.

News: Arborist in West Seattle, as art object & gift

Modified notebooks of various sizes
Now that we're solidly into the rainy season in Seattle, I'm slowing down as far as productivity goes. While I can usually work 4 days a week, in the fall I'm lucky to work 3. It's a bugger and I hate it, but I am still able to do some things...

  • Remind you to reserve your copy of FibroShark Hungry
  • Appear for a couple of hours at the opening of the Arborist show this week
  • Paint a few notebooks all pretty so you can buy them for yourself or someone else you love
  • Occasionally load or unload the dishwasher
  • And the rest is sleeping

Right now I'm actually flaring pretty hard (I slept for 15 of the last 18 hours), my shoulders are taped on & I've got pain-relief patches on both wrists that aren't really doing a whole lot of good. I also have a wicked craving for some warm, fresh-from-the-oven baked goods (gluten free, of course), & some cuddling. The only reason I'm writing this post right now is because I want to make sure it gets done so people come to the show this week.

News: Arborist show, original art objects, pre-order FibroShark Hungry

With all of this book-making business, I've realized I never
need to settle for a merely adequate sketchbook again
Lots of book-making this past week. Including the object at the right which happened because I was bored & had an extra 40 minutes. The Arborist cover took a bit longer, but the point is, I made a 40-page sketchbook in less than an hour. Anyway...

I want to welcome those who have recently begun enjoying my work. Whenever my fans, new or seasoned, like a piece I post on the FB site a part of me is validated in a highly dramatic fashion. I always welcome feedback & love to hear what my art evokes in your brains & hearts.
